Transmission could be in limp mode, if you have a check engine light on the dashboard, take you car and have mechanic look and rebuild your transmission

Like to find out why transmission will shift in reverse and first but not drive and second will not move in Drive and second gears 1976 Motorhome will drive in reverse and first gear


Because 2nd and third gears use a different clutch pack than first and reverse. It sounds like the 2nd and third clutches are gone.

I have a 1999 Lexus ES300 that will not go into reverse or shift out of second gear, et pulls good and hard in first and second. No noises or slippage at all. Does anyone know of a shift sensor or computer...


There is nothing electrical that will keep the trans from going into reverse. The direct clutches ( third ) are used in reverse. I would guess you have a direct clutch problem. Time for a rebuild or replacement.

01 suburban 1500 4x4 auto, no reverse or second gear, skips right to third, little trans noise in p,r,n then goes away in drive thanks mark


sounds mechanical. No reverse and no lower gears. If it were an electrical or computer control issue would default to second gear and still have reverse. Sorry, but I think you will have to pull the tranny on this one.
Good luck.

MY TRANS WONT SHIFT INTO THIRD GEAR UNTIL IM DOING 45 MPH IT SHIFTS FINE IN FIRST AND SECOND GEAR WHEN IT IS IN SECOND GEAR AND WONT SHIFT TO THIRD I CAN PUT IT IN N AND BACK TO OVERDRIVE THEN IT SHIFTS.


Most likely your shift cable (from the selector to the transmission) is worn, maybe needs lubrication. Mine had a similiar problem, but had to shift it into neutral and back up to get it in reverse. A new shift cable solved the problem.

I cant put my car into first, second or reverse gear


u need to adjust the shift linkage cables, the adjustment is made at the trans end of the shift cables, very involved, u will need a repair manual to get it right and also a possible set of new shift cables as well..

E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2


check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
