Most common problem when this occurs is the Slave cylinder leaking. Check the fluid level it is usually located next to the master cylinder for your brakes, where you add brake fluid.

I am not entirely certain I understand what button you are describing. However I think you are talking about the button that has to be depressed in order to shift gears. Aside from the transmission not being able to return to the park position, it has no effect on the key being removed from the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder wearing out and not releasing is a very common problem and requires a new ignition lock cylinder.

replace the fluid in the transmission with the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it in many cases this new synthetic fluid solves this kind of problem, also replace the fluid filter while u are at it.

SOURCE: 2006 PT w/ manual transmission won't go into gear when it's hot

You have worn out your shift cables. They cost approx 500 to replace. Mine did the same thing, and of course not covered under extended warranty because it is a wear and tear part just like break pads.

VW 1996 Transporter T5 Shifting problems hard shifting when cold but as it warms up it shifts better.


Your fluid is either old or the wrong kind for your transmission. Changing your manual transmission fluid with a higher quality fluid should definitely reduce the difficulty of cold fluid/cold weather shifting. First go to the parts store and find out exactly what kind of fluid your transmission takes. Most manual transmission use gear oil. I recommend using something like Red Line, AMSOIL, or Royal Purple if available. A synthetic will make it even easier to shift. Always check with the manufacturer if you are unsure. I try to stick with the manufacturers recommendations because typically they know what works best with what they've engineered...but sometimes after market fluids can't be outperformed.

Why does my transmission shudder at a stop and why does it have trouble shifting up?


A waste of time flushing the transmission fluid, the fluid lasts for the life of the vehicle and beyond!
I suspect oil pressure issues if electronic or slipping clutches if mechanical.
Take it in for service.

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT with an automatic transmission. The mileage is 137,774. I have a very concerning issue with the AT and I'll try to describe the issue the best I can. The car shudders quite...


Your torque converter lock up is defective, it is not turning off. I would replace the torque converter lock up solenoid first and change the fluid and filter, if that is not the fix the transmission will need to come out for rebuilding and the torque converter replaced most likely..

2004 ram3500 transmission slippage when warm


Hi, transmission slipping normally does not occur when the transmission is warm, as warm temperatures favor proper working of the automatic transmission systems. Nonetheless, if problems such as, broken transmission bands, gears or torque conversion already exist, then the transmission might slip even in warm temperatures. Another situation may arise, if the fluid suffers from contraction in cold weather and gradually the weather warms up sufficiently, to expand the internal parts and fluids. Then due to cold weather, a small transmission problem might occur. However, the problem may be too small to affect the vehicle. However, warm weather cannot be directly linked to transmission slipping.

changing transmission is very difficult and requires a lift. this may not have been occurring when they changed transfer case and they will not cover it unless you have proof this occurred before warranty expired. another option is a used transmission
