Transmison wont change into 4th gear but goes in manual mode

If it's a GM 700R4, your overdrive hub and drum is burned out. That has happened to me and required a rebuild. If it can't go into forth gear, it cant do any more harm by trying to go to overdrive. That's just a safety mechanism to get you home. In third gear, but home.

1989 TLC Gas engine...wont start

Check to ensure fuel pump fuse hasn't burned out. Try spraying starting fluid directly into the throttle body to see if it tries to catch.

1989 pathfinder will not start has fuel but no spark replace coil still nothing

There are several pieces to the puzzle.
You would need to verify the coil has battery voltage with the key switch on. Then there is an ignition module that controls spark timing, a pickup coil in the distributor, and so on.
To be able to troubleshoot the system, you would need a book, preferably a shop manual, to get the wiring diagrams and procedures.

Hi I have Honda Odyssey 2000 v.6 3.0lt, recently the transmission plays up, it doesn't shift gear, but engaged in third gear all the time and D green light keeps flashing. I don't know why it

Possibly the Throttle position sensor (TPS) This controls a number of things one of wich is when the transmition changes gear. I recomend you have the vehicle scaned though & that should give you an answer.

I changed the spark plug , the wire set the rotor, the rotor cup, and the fuel filter ,my nissan pathfinder 1989. when i start the engine , it run erratically for a while and suddenly it stole, it has a...

you need to get a diaghram on the firing order of your spark plug

wires, almost any autoparts store will give you the firing order for

your vehicle. if the firing order is incorrect the engine can sound

like its falling apart. the spark plugs also need to be gapped

correctly, they are not always pre-gapped or check the gap of

one of your old spark plugs and match the gap with the new ones.

good luck!

My automatic transmission slips when shifting from

Either the fluid is low or you have a clogged trany filter or are starting to loose your transmition.If it is just low on fliud you will ruin your trany if you keep driving it with this condition.Check your fluid level with the engine running and if it is low fill it to the full line and test drive.

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.
