    Yep! Exact problem right now Holms! I found out the soleniod is a better diagnostic than the obvious whole trans replacement at $1800 dealer price. Unlike you (right?) I never changed the fluids nor filter (if it has one). The solinoids allow fluids to pass changing gears, so imagin if the holes were clogged with sludg or worce worn. I would love to change them myself. Any one out there know how to replace them, or one?
    A flush may fix it or cause more problems if over 150k miles.
    Let me knwo what you find out!

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

My car shifts hard from 1st to 2nd then to 3rd,check enginelight comes on right after,it wont shift out of 1st,


Sounds to me that you need to have your clutch replaced, it sounds like you have either broken teeth on the flywheel gear or bent or broken fingers on your clutch plate...
Hope this helps!
Happy Holidays!

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

Car dies when driving,check engine light comes on.


There is a good chance it could be your fuel pump , however if the check engine light is coming on and the dealer cant tell you what is wrong , try a different dealer or another shop. Second opinions never hurt.
