SOURCE: Transmission won't shift from 1st to 2nd gear on it's own

Have someone scan the transmission for bad shift sensors.

SOURCE: 1988 dodge caravan has been setting up for some

If the unit worked before you parked it, likely you had a varnish buildup inside that was the result of lack of service or an overheat condition previous to parking it.(while sitting the varnish can harden up and cause internal solenoids and valves to become stuck) The only real way to remove the varnish would be to remove it and have it rebuilt. You could try something like changing the fluid and using an additive such as the one made by Lucas. I would also check any electrical harness plugs going to the transmission to make sure none have become corroded, as that too can affect the shift pattern, If changing the fluid works, change it again in 2,000 miles to remove anything that could block the filter.

SOURCE: car stuck in gear

Is it an automatic or standard? If it's standard, check the shifter cable, automatic, I would do a fluid flush, change the tranny filter, and make sure the pan isn't bent. I know someone who had the same problem, they thought they needed a new tranny, but they just needed a new filter (cost a couple bucks at the auto parts store), and then they noticed the pan was bent, which wasn't allowing clearance for the larger gears to be engaged.

My car will not go into gear unless its started and already in gear. Ill pull it outta gear and won't go back in while running.


Your transaxle will have to come out & new parts installed,
like synchro rings

You should be able to push in the clutch & shift thru all
gears nice & smooth,with no engine running.

That said I wouldn't rule out clutch issues also,but not
for the shifting issues.

MY TRANS WONT SHIFT INTO THIRD GEAR UNTIL IM DOING 45 MPH IT SHIFTS FINE IN FIRST AND SECOND GEAR WHEN IT IS IN SECOND GEAR AND WONT SHIFT TO THIRD I CAN PUT IT IN N AND BACK TO OVERDRIVE THEN IT SHIFTS.


Most likely your shift cable (from the selector to the transmission) is worn, maybe needs lubrication. Mine had a similiar problem, but had to shift it into neutral and back up to get it in reverse. A new shift cable solved the problem.

Automatic transmiddon will not shift out of third gear.


Does it shift normally in drive and just won't go into overdrive, (4th gear), or is it hung up in 3rd from a dead stop?

Can you shift it manually with the shifter? Like have it in second gear and put it in 3? If it shifts check vacuum hose to modulator.

Transmission passing gear keep either getting stuck or it dont work because the motor keep idling up in first gear


this could be relative to many things, however you should check a few things before asessing the possibilities. When you put the truck in gear from park, Drive (overdrive) Should be the third notch you come to. so your in park, pull down clunk you're in reverse, clunk you're in neutral, clunk, now you are in drive. If you dont feel/ hear four notches/ clunks, you should be in overdrive. If you take off and it over revs 1st ( you shouldn't see more than 15 mph before it shifts on a stock transmission unless your flooring it and taking off fast) and then hard shifts to second gear, progresses to third gear normally, but wont progress into overdrive, it may be related to your vaccum advance, your shift linkage, or even possibly your timing. From the sounds of it, I would say vaccum advance is the likely cause, if it is otherwise in stock condition. If this is the case it could be as simple as reconnecting a vacum hose to the distributor. Should be to the left hand side of the cap, between the cap and intake manifold as you are looking at the firewall.

My 1990 towncar hesitates at third gear going 38 mph it first revs then switches into the gear..also it doesnt go into passing gear when i pass a car it wont shift down..


your tranny is going out. VERY common with the 8 cylinders. Have seen it many many times. You should still be able to drive it for a year or so before it goes completely.
When it revs up just let off the gas til the rpm's go down, and then slowly give gas again.
