Bring it back to the shop that charged you money to replace the transmission, they told you it would solve your problem, obviously it didnt, so why are you not trying to get your money or let them fix it

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

No 3rd or 4th gear


Mos likely the tranny is shot. There have been many problems with the Vue tranny.

'89 Jeep Wrangler. Why won't it go into 3rd and 4th gear?


It is possible that the shift linkage has become loose and shifted but it is more likely that an intermediate gear or another component inside the transmission has become broken. This may require a transmission rebuild to correct.

Why does s3 and s4 on integra start flashing


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode

Auto transmission wont go into 4th


This is a very common problem which can be fixed for under $100 without removing the transmission

It is the end clutch which can be removed as an assymble aout the side of the transmission. New parts will run under a hundred. Serch and you will find pages that show pictorials on this repair.

The auto transmission doesn't shift from 3rd to 4th


It is possible that the computer is the culprit. Most cars with computer controlled trannys will keep in 3rd gear and only shift to overdrive when the engine has warmed up sufficiently. It could be a problem with this system. The best place to take it is your local AAMCO or Mr. Transmission, or the dealer. A regular garage will just be guessing in some cases unless the problem is revealed after running the engine codes.

Auto Gear hard shift


Either: Your low on transmission fluid, you need to replace the filter, or there's something wrong with the transmission.
