Won't drive or shift in 3rd gear but will reverse first and second gear


If it won't shift to 3rd and stays in second, bad shift solenoid/s. If it shifts and the transmission drops out(high RPM's), the bad clutches in the transmission. Rebuild. Solenoids around $600 to replace. Transmission rebuild around $2200.

I have a 2004 chevy 1500 have already rebuilt the transmission two time and now it slipping again here what its doing i can take off fine but when its time to shift from 2nd to 3rd the rpm go up so i will...


not sure if it will make much difference but there are sensors on the trans that can be bad and you really have no way to tell it. or a wheel speed sensor or could even be a dirty clogged trans filter but I am leaning more towards the sensors. I can bet when they rebuilt the trans they just reused the same sensors and thats why you still have the same problem

Why does my 1974 international 100 truck not shift from 2nd to 3rd


If it is an automatic trans, chances are the problem is inside the transmission. Probably the 3rd gear clutch pack.

1977 chevy with a turbo 350 slipping out of gear


Check the TV (throttle valve) cable, if that's out of adjustment the trany will think you want passing gear. Try disconnecting the cable at the carburator, that should make it shift into high gear at about 25 MPH and stay in high until you slow down. If it fails to stay in high gear then you have major problem. Are there a lot of miles on it? Are you sure you have enough fluid in it? Does the fluid smell burned. It might be just worn out. Good luck!

GEAR SHIFTING CAMRY 2004 2.4 XLI


Hi,

This might be because of the gear box problem. By any chance, did your car face flooding? In such cases, please drain the gear box and replace it with new gear fluids. Also, check if you go in low speeds, you might be able to engage it with ease. Please come back to me if you feel this doesnt solve your issue.

Regards,
Hari
