SOURCE: 1991 Ford Thunder Transmission Not Shifting When Cold

Change the fluid and filter. Take note of the condition of the old oil and filter ie. does it smell burnt? Are there any metal filings/fragments? Use only mercon ATF, no additives. If this doesn't fix it, it will need a pressure/road test. Only other thing is the vacuum modulator valve. To check it, look on the pass side of the trans towards the rear for a small vacuum actuator. You'll recognize it because it has a vacuum hose going to it and it has one bolt holding it on. Remove it with an oil drain pan handy. There is a small push rod in the hole, be careful not to lose it. Now if you somewhat clean it, you can put a short piece of vacuum hose on it, and **** on it to see if it holds vacuum. There is a spring loaded diaphram inside that you should be able to move if you **** hard enough. If it's nfg, then air will be able to flow throuh the diaphram and it won't work. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: UNABLE TO LOCATE WHERE TO FILL TRANSMISSION FLUID

The tranny dip stick is behind the eng. on the passenger side between the firewall and motor.Its not easy to spot because it sits down in a little bit and is black in color.Add oil where you pull the dip stick out and not to much oil at a time.You will need to get a small funnel that will fit into the tube.Once you have found the it,check the oil level with the eng.running and hot to get the correct reading.Add a little at a time being sure you dont overfill.Recheck the level after driving and add more if nessesary.Hope this helps.

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR SHIFT CABLE IS BROKEN TAKE YOUR CENTER CONSLE APART BY THE SHIFTER AND YOU WILL SEE A CABLE THAT IS CONNECTED TO YOUR SHIFTER MOVE YOUR SHIFTER BACK AND FORTH AND YOU SHOULD SEE YOUR PROBLEM.

You need to take it to a dealer and have the throttle valve cable adjusted. Prolong operation in this condition will result in a damaged tranny.

When making any stop then when I step on gas to process it has very low power or the shift on the transmission is lacking. Wht could it be?


What happens if you shift it manually? (starting from 1, then 2, etc) If it drives OK with manual shift, then your trans is not shifting properly. If, however, the engine is still lacking power when shifting manually, there is a problem with the engine.

Shifting to NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL, first make sure
the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Start the vehicle.
3. Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or have
the clutch pedal pressed for vehicles with
manual transmission.
5. Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
6. Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and
4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL
light will come on when the transfer case shift to
NEUTRAL is complete.
7. Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one
second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D)
for one second or FIRST (1) for vehicles with
manual transmission.
8. Turn the ignition to OFF.
9. Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P) or
FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
10. Release the parking brake prior to towing.

************************

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:
1. Set the parking brake and apply the regular
brake pedal.
2. Start the vehicle with the transmission in PARK (P)
or FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
3. Press the button for the desired transfer case position
(2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or press the
clutch pedal for vehicles with manual transmission.
5. Shift the transmission lever to the desired position.
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL,
the red light will go out.
6. A re-engagement sound is normal when shifting out
of NEUTRAL.

Using the select shift in my 2009 sonata


The purpose of shift tronic is to give the driver the option of driving like a manual where you command the shift, or auto for easy driving (little effort). It is not specifically used just to down shift or upshift. When you are in 5th gear, thats it, it will do in it normal mode or sport shift.

1994 lexus 300 will not shift but will shift if i manually shift


If the transmission "brain" in modern cars senses problems it can keep the tranny from shifting. Usually leaves you in second gear as a safety and warning indication. I don't now if that year lexus had this ability but getting it checked on a diagnostic computer that read transmission codes should shed some light on your situation.
