Mazda Sentia 929 auto failure

I have a 1993 3ltr Mazda Sentia (929) - it only runs in 1st and/or 2nd gear under load - it wont change gear beyond 2nd - it just revs high - going down hill I can put it in D (drive) and the revs come down and it will go thru all gears - the minute I take on a hill - it will just rev up and is in no gear - I have to override and pull it back to 1st where it will drive at 3000rpm - but nothing above 80kph - do I need a new gearbox - or is it a computer problem?

Rebuilt gearbox probably... unfortunately!
If the HOLD light in the in strument cluster is flashing at you, it is giving you a transmission diagnostic code (like a kind of Morse Code). A transmission specialist or a Mazda Dealer will be able to read this code and plug their computer into the cars computer, and tell you what is wrong.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

One thing that can cause this is a faulty torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty, the shifting of the vehicle fails. One good reason why it only shifts on 2 gears. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1992 mazda 929 3.0 ltr v6 auto has no movement while in any gear.


check the transmission fluid, and shift linkage, if it is full you will need to rebuild the transmission, probably cheaper to replace with a used one.

Lost hb mazda929 fuse box cover how do we get


Contact a local auto salvage yard (Yellow Pages under Auto Salvage) and ask for a Mazda 929 Fuse cover. They may tell you that they do not have one but... most salvage yards can do a computer search of other local yards and find it for you.

Auto transmission not smooth 1st to 2nd


Admitting a lack of familiarity with your car, this is often caused by an improper adjustment of the transition point from one gear (or clutch) to another.
1st is still not disengaged when 2nd is engaging but this is normally an adjustable point.

I've also seen this caused by the use (or adding) of the wrong fluid; the beasts are fussy about that sometimes.
