HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

SOURCE: transmission

Check your rear emergency brakes. A brake shoe pin could have broke and the shoe locks up in 1 direction. but not the other. The other problem you mentioned could happen, but if it is in reverse the trans shifted.

SOURCE: 1995 jeep Cherokee sport. Transmission hesitates

Your transmission is essentially a pressure pump. The condition you indicated shows a lack of internal pressure which can be caused by linkage improperly adjusted or internal problems...However, if this condition has existed for more than a few days, even if the cause is correctable externally, it's likely that you have damaged the internal friction material that depends upon pressure to achieve a solid application without slippage. I would check the fluid condition and perhaps check the filter inside the pan for blockage...If there is an exceptional amount of debris on the filter and in the pan, changing the oil and filter may give you some short term relief but likely the unit will need to be rebuilt or replaced very soon.

Reverse not working in my 1995 saab a week after the clutch was


Standard tranny's are pretty simple. Sounds like some of the linkage came unconnected. Take it back to whoever replaced the clutch and have them repair the problem. They apparently didn't put it back together right. You have to disconnect the linkage to pull the transmission to replace the clutch.

1996 Plymouth voyager reverse lights not working, transmission replaced this week and they claimed the reverse lights have nothing to do with reverse lights. owners manual does not show a fuse for back up...


They are full of baloney. Ther's a switch underneath the shift lever that engages when you shiht into reverse. The mechanic probably loosened it when reconnecting the shift linkage to the new tranny.

Thay may have knocked the switch out of position, which would cause the lights to go on in some other gear than reverse. That would be the first thing I check.

Good luck !

Transmision Shifting Problem


Was the fluid you drained red or black? did it smell like trans or gear oil? With linkage disconnected, could you put trans in park by moving the lever on the side of the unit? Oil condition is likely a separate issue...most "blown" transmissions generally have normal operation of shift, it just dosen't do what you tell it to. two things likely going on are: linkage problem and likely in need of fluid/filter change.

98 mustang GT transmission locked in reverse


This could be a linkage problem. I am not familiar with this transmission, does the shifter go directly into the top of the tranny? If not make sure the linkage is not hanging up somewhere. I'll help if I can. Thanks..................DB.
