Won't slip into overdrive

I have a 2006 forenza with about 60,000 miles on it. It's been doing fine, but on the way home tonight it wouldn't slip into overdrive. It has an automatic transmission. Any ideas?

How many miles can you can run with the oil transmission?


I couldn't find the manual for the 2005, the 2006 says the automatic transmission should be inspected every 24,000 km (15,000 mi) and changed every 60,000 km (37,500 mi).
The manual transmission should be inspected every 48,000 km (30,000 mi) and has no recommended change within 180,000 km (112,500 mi) where the maintenance schedule ends.

Here is the owners manual for the 2006, the maintenance schedule is section 6 almost the very end.

2006 suzuki forenza has a hard time starting up


that can be lots of things.
first off does it crank robustly , that is the starter motor cranks ok?
does it?
and then it fails to start.
the first check is to go a tune up.
the glove box car, operators manual shows. 60,000 mile
critical tunes, spark plugs. air filters ,etc. do those yet, ever?

Cant find sparkplugs on mitsubshi outlander 2006 4cyl.


Not familar with your engine, but we get a lot of
those questions everyday

The answer is: you either never looked very hard
or have no idea that half of all vehicles today are hemi
head engines & the spark plugs are under the
individual coils,you have to remove first, to get to
the spark plugs.

Not a car person since you were a teen,then I
understand,you haven't keep up with technology

When I see problem with 2006 Mitsu I have no idea
how that got there

This is an open social web site or forum,at home, don't
get paid,don't know anymore than you do, about this site

So what problems if any are you having?
Changing spark plugs won't fix much
They get changed every 3 years or 60,000 miles in the motor

I would guess you have 100,000 miles by now, so the front
O2 Sensors should be changed also

I have a 2004 Suzuki Forenza. Just got the 60,000 mile service done on the car (timing belt and the whole 9 yards...) I picked up my car from the dealership last weekend. As I was decelerating on a...


I would suggest calling the dealer right away - there may be a defect in your transmission OR they may have done the transmission service wrong, if the transmission was even serviced. I have had a bad experience with a company power flushing my transmission - they did it wrong ( changed the filter before flushing) and fried my transmission. I'm not totally sure of what is going on with your car ( a hands on diagnostic is required) but I do think something is rotten in your trans.
Hope this helps!

The transmission slips in and out of overdrive too much and shifts a little rough, but only in overdrive


Check the fluid level of the transmission. Also if you haven't done so in the last 30k miles change the transmission filter/fluid and pan gasket.

I never trust rebuilt trannies unless i rebuild them myslef....Beefing up valve bodies sometime leads to premature wear and tear...the kit could be malfuctioning aswell. Chefck fluids and replace the filter in it, if that doesnt fix it, then take it back to the tech, and demand free service :)

My 2001 f250 when shifting out of overdrive its not a solid shift! it seems to flutter into overdrive. the truck has 75000 original miles, 1 owner. under extreme acceleration it shifts fine.


has the trans ever been serviced? it should have the fluid and filter changed every 60,000 miles, this may help if it hasn't been done, also check for clutch mud in the pan of the trans..
