Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
The transmission on Olds Cutlass supreme 3.1 L engine doesnot shift out of 1st gear, no reverse either.
SOURCE: Transmission problem..
The transmissions in these cars (4T60E) were NIGHTMARES!!!!!! Do yourself a favor to avoid continuous problems. Replace it with a trusted transmission dealer> I can't say who not to take it to but it rymes with slamco (haha)
other problems that will occur, even if you replace the ATP
1. in winter time when you shift to drive it hesitates or feels like it is only partially in gear (fluid will be full when you check it)
2. car shudders in overdrive.
3. car makes a destinct "klunking" noise while in park at a slightly higher RPM. almost sounds like something is loose in the motor.
so like i said get it replaced, I have been though 3 of these since my car was new the car has 263K on it now and i am about to replace it again (argh). The only reason I am is because it is a convertible in nearly mint shape,,
OH by the way "Trans X" is a GREAT product to prolong the replacement adventure. Local auto parts stores have it by that name.

It physically will fit and bolt up,but there are many different ratio,and drive and driven sprocket tooth counts,different final drive ratios,all monitored by the computer with electronic speed sensors.If the trans from the 95 has a different ratio than the 93,the computer will set gear ratio error codes,and possibly put the trans in a failsafe mode,stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear.On the transmission case,down by where the passenger side axle would go in,is a thin metallic tag,maybe 2"x 3",and it has bar codes,and also a series of numbers and letters.The numbers and letters,large cap,are the final drive gear ratio code.They should match on the two transmissions in question.

SOURCE: Olds 88 tranny fit a Cutlass?
As long as the tags on the trans have the same numbers yes, these transmisssions are electroniclly controlled and there are internal differences even though they may bolt up, there are ID tags on all transmissions sold by GM and installed on the production line.

The EMC detected and problem so it's in limp mode, As long as it's in limp mode the 4th and OD will not activate. Take care not to burn up the transmission by running it hard while your in the limp mode.
Your going to have to get the truck scanned to clear any codes and why there are DTC codes. Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shops charge $10.00 to $20.00 to scan sine they want the business.
If you want to clear the codes your self you can put the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) fuse out for 20 sec and place it back in then start the truck. It may stall but let it, just start it again and this would have cleared all the DTC code history.
The transmission should be running fine unless there is a problem and the service engine light will be on again and you'll be in limp mode still with an updated DTC in the ECM.
Good luck and hope this helps.
