SOURCE: long time to shift in 3rd gear

Try a new transmission filter and fluid. A lot cheaper than a transmission and probably the problem

92 dodge ram 150 not shifting


Two things happen on the Dodge's. 1. the rear O2 sensor shorts out and meses things up. 2. the Inner seal on the Direct drum (3rd) shrinks and causes a delayed up shift.

MY 2002 AVALANCHE WILL NOT SHIFT GEARS AFTER I GET OVER 50 MPH. THE TWO THINGS I'VE DONE DIFFERENTLY IS I BEGAN DRIVING AROUND TOWN USING 3RD GEAR AND DIDN'T USE THE DRIVE GEAR UNLESS I WENT OVER 50 MPH....


It likely has nothing to do with your fuel pump. The pump is not located anywhere near the transmission. It could be that your transmission switching unit is not working right. You should take the car in to a mechanic or transmission shop. This is likely not a problem you can solve on your own.

Drops out of OD.


Fluid Change has nothing at all to do with a fix
Nothing at all & on a worn trans can cause slipping
In your case I assume a shop gave it a try
The hard shifts tell you the valve body needs cleaning
I would first look at all body data related to the trans,whatever
your truck has TCM Module whatever
I would check all bulletins at a repair shop in their data base
I would have a mechanic ride with you to look at the trans
with the scan tool on it & watch the speed sensor & any
external sensors you may have for correct data
No also check the brake switch
Does it go into Lock-up in most gears (brake sw )

Transmission not engaging 3rd or 4th gear


The symptoms & mileage is enough to tell
you it is time for a rebuild
Being a former police vehicle ,I would have
rebuilt the trans as soon as I got it,working okey
or not.
Forget advice that is typical unless you understand
the context the word was using in.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with


I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

Have 1989 Lincoln Town Car. Transmisson will not shigft from 3rd to 4th gear. Only car drive about 25-30 mph. thanks


Are you sure the trans is in 3rd. Pull the stick into low gear accelerate shift to 2nd about 20 mph shift to 3rd about 35 mph then 4th about 50 mph. This will let me know how to go further with your problem. If you do this proceedure write the results on this Great FixYa Page!
