Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX

1 Answer

Doesnt sound or feel like my cars shifting AUTO Transmission

I have a 90 Z32 nonturbo auto trany. When i put it in drive it revs and moves, but theres never any drop from rpms like it should when shifting. it just climbs higher and higher, ive done 90 at about 4500. It just feels like its stuck in gear or something. Are my gears gone??? And how much would a new tranny be? Id like a heads up before asking around shops. Thanks.

Hello, my Kia optima 2001 has an auto tranny, the problem is that the car makes rough shifts to 1st gear from a complete stop, it jumbles a little then it recovers and drives normally until a new stop is...

I would recommend that you have the fluid and filter changed, and put some Seafoam transmission repair in it, Seafoam is the best thing that you can use for a transmission, it will free a stcky valve body, and condition all of the moving parts, freeing them of grime that causes transmission damage and slipping, and hard shifting, you can get it at just about any auto parts store.

If you drive it a few days like that ,you will have a $3000 repair bill

instead of a $332.20 Solenoid Trans Pack, I put in my 2004

Any time you have, any trans issues,you stop driving it immediately
You never drive again, until diagnosed and repaired

I used to own a trans repair shop.

You will have to add labor to yours.

The truck does not want to advance into 5th gear(automatic transmission) it revs around 4000+ RPM's. There doesnt seem to be any other problems or issues. If it sounds like it needs transmission fluid,...

doesnt sound like it needs fluid, sounds like lock up for overdrive in the torque converter is bad, or possibly a shift solenoid. i would take it to an auto store and have them scan it, if it doesnt have any codes for it, it is most likely the torque converter

I have a 2000 golf 2.0 (automatic) it is not shifting properly. check engine light is on. when i drive @ 30-40mph it revs between 3-4rpm when usual it would be @ 2. what could this be?

the first thing i would do would be to check the trany fluid level,make sure engine is warm and then check, some of these vws dont have dip sticks to check the trany oil level,theres a procedure to check,so if yours doesnt have a dip stick you should take it somewhere and have the level checked and also check for leaks,if the trany oil is full then i would have the trany checked, also that check engine light may have something to do with the shifting problem,have the computer scanned, the codes will help you diagnose the problem,auto zone will scan it for free, there are other parts places that will also scan and give you a read out of the codes stored in the computer, hope this helps.

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.

1996 F150 V8 4X4 Auto Transmission Problem

Is it starting out in 2nd. too? If so you may have a blown fuse or you tore some wires off. If the trany loses it's electrics it will go into the limp home mode. It will only have 2nd. and reverse. GM vehicles do the same thing.
