After spending nights for the past few weeks replacing the automatic transmission in my 1994 4 cyl Probe, it now won't engage. In addition, with the tranny in park, both wheels spin freely. I replaced both the tourque converter and tranny w/ used parts that supposedly only have 2000 miles since rebuild...I did not have them checked first. The tranny is full of fluid and I do not hear any grinding, clunking or other noises that would indicate a problem. Any ideas?

Double check fluid level while engine running and warm. If it's full...?. A: No Fill to level and try to drive. A: Yes then ask a person to help to shift to drive and watch the shift cable.It pull the transmission shift handle or not...? If it move ou pull. it's time to rebuild. If it doesn't move. The cable slip off. hook it back on
I'm having a problem with my tranny not wanting to shift automatically at all. Seems like a dead stop its stuck in low gear. Have to manually shift and does not go into overdrive. I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Can anyone help me cause I've swiched out throttle control sensor, filter change, new tranny cooler and heavy duty lines. I'm at a loss and scratching my head. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
I'm guessing you mean transmission fluid poured out? That would certainly explain why it won't move. The most common leak point for older automatic transmission cars are the transmission cooler lines. They run from the radiator to the transmission (the cooler is built into the radiator) and they are made of steel so they are prone to rust. I would start looking there. The other leak points would be the lower pan, axle seals, and where the case bolts together. Take a look at the radiator and you should see some small steel lines bolted to the radiator. Follow them and look for heavy rust that is wet with fluid.
First thing I would suggest is, you check the transmission fluid level in your car. If your fluid level is adequate, then you may need to have your transmission bands adjusted or gears and/or clutches within your transmission replaced.
After reading your question again, I am unsure if you shifter will not engage reverse or the transmission will not go into reverse. Nevertheless, if the transmission will not go into reverse, even after the car warms up, then your transmission may require a serious overhaul. Try driving your vehicle for several miles and see if it goes into reverse after warming up.
when you replaced that bulb did you look at the socket where the bulb goes to see if it is corroded? that is most likely the problem.also make sure the wires are plugged in where that light is at.hope this helps!!!
OK..............There is no transmission fluid just clutch fluid. Its in a small reservoir on the firewall. I think you have a worn clutch or it needs the lines adjusted. If the clutch doesn't engage until the pedal it almost at the top then you need to adjust it or replace it. The cleaner you put in is irrelevant to your problem. There is gear oil in the transmission though but that's not the problem either. The clutch cable is easy to adjust, just loosen the lock nut and spin the cable adjuster until the pedal feels right. Hope this helps :)
I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0L that suffered the same problem. The transmission shop Techs insisted the transmission was blown and needed replaced. After doing some research it turn out to be the Park Neutral Switch also known as a Transmission Range Sensor right below the air box. The part cost 54 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it. About a year latter the problem came back. After doing some more research it turn out to be the VSS speed sensor. The part cost 57 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it.
The transmission in your vehicle is a 4L30E model,manufactured by General Motors,and used in vehicles from BMW's to Cadillacs,Isuzu's and Honda's.The transmission is BASED on the old Chevette Turbo Hydramatic 180 model.The 4L30E is basically a TH180 with an overdrive unit added on.I rebuild transmissions for a living,and have seen the 4L30E over and over with the same failures,inherent weaknesses,and every transmission model has them,just in different areas.The 4L30E failures are nothing new,so don't despair.Hopefully the trans currently in your truck will be problem free.
