Why won't it shift into drive or overdrive?


Joshua, Have transmission scanned for trouble codes, check fluid level and top up if needed, maybe shift solenoid, sprag in transmission,etc.. Have a good technician diagnose and estimate repair.

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

I hav ea 94 lincoln. It works in reverse. I start out in drive. It is fine from 1st to second gear. It will not go into third or overdrive.


This is a computer shifted transmission, if there is a problem with the electrical shift solenoids the system will set a code. Aamco does this code testing from free, I suggest you have them hook it up and see what shows up in the computers memory.

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.

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.

1997 Chevy blazer not shifting


This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.
