if your car get a VSS code the Transmission control module.
Will command the Trans, in LIMP MODE.
Is mean you only will have 2 gear.
If you replaced the VSS sensor allready.
Maybe you have A electrical problem.
The First step is Check the condition of the VSS connector.
Remove the Connector and pull the wires a little each by each one.
To see if is broken inside of the Plastic cover.
IF you can
GIVE ME the Code number I will help you better.
Because is there more that One speed sensor on your trans..
Check the grounds on the Intake manifold, Black wire one of the wires is for the speed sensor.
The RED/YELLOW wire coming from the INSTRUMENT CLUSTER,
Is mean you need to check the Fuses that work with the instrument cluster. FUSE # 12 10amp, And # 30 10amp.
Located at fuse block left side of dash.
Is there a ground that work with the Cluster and Combination Meter. Behind left side of dash Black wire.
Check the Connection of the Cluster.

OK.. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

It sounds like it may be an electrical problem. Maybe a problem with the TCM, or a sensor.

Yes they should have known about your transmission. Are they liable? That is a tough question because there is no saying that you did not have a underlying problem that was not found. To prove this you would have to take it to a shop and have them take the transmission apart, then see what exactly went wrong and go from there.

Pcm was stolen at repair shop. put re-maned one and had it programed to it wont stay running and has a miss. ran like new prior,,had trans replaced

Bought a bad PCM? Wrong one? Just got a PCM, it was for a 3.4 engine. They told the manager it would work for a 3.8. I told the manager it won't. Had to hook it up and prove it to the manager. Security was the first issue, then the transmission would be the next. I didn't even make it pass the security. A 3.4 PCM will run the 3.8 engine, with other computers replaced. But will not run the transmission correctly. And this is our problem. I told the manager to inform the customer that they had the wrong PCM. I also told him to give the car back. Then told him I could fix it, but needed PCM,BCM, Ignition switch,key and chip, from one junk car.

Check the compression. This problem often happens when the head gasket is gone and there is not enough compression.

If the engine is consuming water, then it is definitively the head gasket.

Let me know if this is the problem.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord and after I start it and go about 50 yards the check engine light comes on and the D light keeps flashing and it dies. Please help me!!

I have seen a problem like this before, however it was on a 1998 to 2002 Accord. On those models it was one of two things; either the speed sensor that sends a radio signal from the transmission to the speedometer is bad, or the transmission itself is bad. If you notice that your speedometer doesn't register speed when you're driving then the sensor is bad. If not then I would say the problem is the transmission.

I have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous. The radiator coolant has leaked into the Transmission. How can I fix this outside of replacing the transmission?

You have a real problem on your hands. Not only did coolant get into the transmission, transmission fluid most likely got into your coolant as well. The trans fluid will eat the lining of all the rubber cooling hoses and cause them to soften and eventually fail, and will cause a black, gunky color in the coolant. You will need to:
1. Replace the radiator since the trans cooler inside has broken.
2. Replace all coolant hoses and flush the entire cooling system.
3. Have the transmission rebuilt or replaced to ensure all coolant traces have been removed.

There is no easy fix for this....I had to do it myself.

I have a 95 vw passat and it seems that it is stuck in first gear. I can drive on the highway but the rpm gauge will go higher and higher when I go 60 the rpm guage is at 4 and will go higher as I increase...

Careful not to burn out your transmission over a simple fix. It sounds like the Vehicle Velocity Sensor (VVS) has gone bad and it a simple fix and can be done in under an hour. If your not familiar with the transmission and the components, have a transmission shop replace the sensor for you since there more experienced with getting the job done. If you think you can replace it your self, you can pick up the VVS at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the VVS with common tools. It's like replacing a spark plug, that is the good news. The bad news is that if you have been running the car at hy-way speeds in lower gears, there is a good chance that you may of overheated the transmission fluid and you should have the transmission service ( transmission oil and filter replaced) and hope that there is no damages to the clutch packs in the transmission or front pump due to the higher temperature and transmission line pressure. That would be a costly repair since that is most likely going to be a transmission rebuilt. 
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Dodge Durango Transmission Problem

Code 0753 means Transmission 3-4 shift solenoid or transmission relay circuit problem. The PCM (engine computer) is seeing an incorrect input electrically for the gear or speed it should be seeing. You will need to find a qualified transmission shop to diagnose the problem. Possible causes for the trouble code start with worn/dirty fluid, electrical repairs & transmission overhaul.

Bring to tranny shop or repair shop, have it scanned for trouble codes, many electrical parts and solonoids in those trannys, possible it may just be a shift solonoid bad or needs adjustment, much cheaper than replacing tranny. good luck!
