Sounds like the flywheel needs machined. It is probably heat checked (burn marks) on the surface. Like a warped rotor, but only warped on the surface of the flywheel. I hope that this will help you. Best wishes.

So i have a 1993 Firebird Formula, it has a corvette shift kit in the transmission. When im driving the car, shifting from 1st to 2nd gear is fine. When i shift to 3rd and 4th gear sometimes it works and...


Why is there a Corvette shift kit, and not a Firechicken shift kit? Check your tv cable adjustment and of course your fluid level. Shift improvement kits are built for the vehicle for which they are intended, and you don't gain by putting a kit in a vehicle you want, in the vehicle you have. It should not , however, effect downshift that much. Find a reputable tranny shop in your area, and they should be able to help.

1994 Cadillac Deville - won't shift into reverse after sitting overnight or for a couple of hours. Will shift into 1st and then will shift into reverse. What is causing this?


Check the transmission fluid level, reverse needs twice the pressure to activate that drive does. If low refill and try again. If fluid good, I`d say the tranny 3rd reverse clutch is worn out. Recheck the condition of the fluid on the dipstick, if it appears burnt or very dirty I`d still suspect internal tranny clutch issues. It also has a low reverse clutch, but goes into 1st gear as you said.

May be a bad torque converter. You did bolt it to the flywheel didn't you?

Lost reverse, sluggish 1st gear


You will need to get the Tranny Shift Kit Inspected for Shifting Ball Slippage. Should not be a Big Repair unless it messed up the Clutches inside the Tranny.

your clutch might be worn, was any of the oil you changed somewhat metallic? Ive heard to check for a worn clutch: pull the car up to a tree, put a tire or some kind of cushion between the car and the tree put your car in its highest gear, give it gas and very slowly let your clutch out, if the clutch is good the car will shut down immediately.

Shift problems in 95 chrysler concorde transmission


Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.
