After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.

Is it missing reverse 2nd and 4th? If so it has a broken reverse reaction shell. They aren't too hard to replace

Nope. There is a drain plug on the transmission case. It is a simple drain and fill. Odyssey transmissions do not have a filter.

My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

98 Dodge Durango goes into gear but wont move?


How much transmission fluid did you put back in. If you didn't put enough it might not get the pressure it needs to change gears. If you put too much then it creates bubbles and foams and it will cause big problems as well. The 42/44RE transmission takes 12 pints (6 quarts) if the transmission was completely overhauled, torque converter was replaced or drained, and cooler was flushed. The 46RE takes the same amount. When adding transmission fluid you only bring it to the minimum level. After that you drive around and let it get warmed up for a while then when you check it, it should be at the max level.

Reverse slipping


Sounds like the brake band (for reverse) is slipping (not holding). You'll need someone with test gear and the requisite tools to adjust the band - assuming it's got adjustment left. Otherwise you'll need a box overhaul or a new box!

2003 suburban...transmission will not go into 3rd gear...the filter, perhaps?


Yes and no to fix it you have a failed foward sprag. There is a high number of complaint with the 4l60e and 4l70e and you have one of these the transmission will not go in gear in drive and in 3rd so you have a failed sprag or foward clutch here the fix the foward sprag gear it has a high damage complaint.You will need a overhaul you can try the transmission filter the main problem reside in the pressure control unit and since you will relace the filter you can perform one more step and access the pressure control and remove the debriss in there (use brake cleaner the one in the spray can)

The transmission on my 2002 4x4 sonoma crewcab only works on reverse,1st/2nd gear. i m kinda shure the transmission is bad. so id like to know what year transmissions from (ex: blazers/bravadas/s10/jimmi)...


Yes u are right the forward clutchs have failed, the fact reverse works means the front pump is ok, u will need an overhaul or better yet a factory reman trans, they have all the latest improvements to make them last a long time, do not buy from discount auto parts stores, they have about a 20-30% out of the box fail rate based on my experience.

I had the same problem with my 1992 ford bronco 4 wheel drive and what i finally had to do was rebuild the transmission. check your linkage cable to your transmission. it may only be that.

My reverse is gone what do I do?


the "sun shell" or reaction shell broke inside the transmission< if you notice 2nd gear is also gone or working funny. Transtar makes a hardened shell that costs about 40$ but you need to remove the transmission to fix it, and overhaul is best. The burnt fluid smell is because the torque converter has been slipping when you are on the highway, sonex makes a repalcement valve that should be installed by a train proffessional. Solution is rebuilt trans with new converter and parts i have listed in the paragraph
