Did they check the linkages to the transmission to see that they did not break free of their mountings? Did they do pressure tests of the transmission to see if the gears work properly? Did they check the engine mounts for breaks or excess play? I doubt they are a very good shop...take it elsewhere where someone has recommended it as a complete shop. A month is WAY TOO LONG to troubleshoot!

SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Camry,the transmission is not shifting

it is not the gauge cluster or the speed sensor. I have the same problem on the same car and it is getting much worse sense letting others drive it" for a short time. when the transmission slips I put the petal to the floor a few times and it will fall into passing gear, and I am good till I stop racing and try to contiue a set speed. at the time it slips the speedometer goes to zero and then jumps as it tries to get a gear. I have gone through all the wiring and it seems to be ok for what it is " **** but working". I took the computer apart and inspected for any visible evidence of a problem and found none. but I do suspect it to be the problem. I am going to ohm test all external solenoids tomorror morning before buying computer. please let me know what fixed you car if you become aware of my repost to your very old add. or if you have put the car aside for awhile and are ready to fix it once I find the problem with this one this week e-mail me at

SOURCE: I have a 1994 Chevy

The most common problem on these transmissions is a bad ground on the shift solenoids. I am very surprised the transmission shop didn't notify you of this. Unless they just wanted to sell you a new transmission.

Why wont my 04 Envoy wont go into drive

The valve body has failed inside the transmission. . It's possible the shift solenoids or the transmission control module are faulty as well.

did the trans come with the proper fluid(recommended by Chrysler) and level. was the whole system flushed? Reused sensors could be an issue if one or more is faulty.

My 97 jimmy auto transmission wont shift to 3rd . rpm just go up and sounds like im in neutral . just started this yesterday..single broke mom needs help please

Make sure your tranmission oil level is correct. You need to check it with the vehicle warm and running with it in park. If the oil seems dark or smells burnt that is not a good sign. There are shift solenoids in your transmission that can fail but you need a scan tool to troubleshoot those. If you have an Aamco transmission shop near they may test it for free. It also may be more that just a shift solenoid and may need a new transmission.

1997 Mazda protege LX 1.5 automatic transmission

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.
