Sounds like your torque converter may not be unlocking which is like letting your foot out on the clutch on a manual trans and not releasing the brake. Can you move it to neutral ok? To test the theory, move it to neutral, start the vehicle, then without putting your foot on the brake shift to drive with a liitle gas. If you can get going this way, it is the torque converter.

My 92 Lexus LS400 recently lost all forward gears but reverse works just fine.


You can only perform certain tasks yourself on a transmission. In this case it sounds like you need to visit a transmission shop. On occasion cleaning the oil and filter, making sure the trans is upto the correct level on fluid, may resolve an issue. If it does not then you probably need professional assistance.

You shoould visit a good independent rather than a lexus specialist as they will almost certainly charge an arm and leg for labor


GOOD LUCK

Are you sure you put the oil in the engine and not the transmission, check both the engine and trans dip sticks to make sure they are at the correct level.

I changed the oil on my 2000 isuzu rodeo and now when I start the can and i shift the car dose not move. It starts fine but wont revers or drive when I put it in gear.


you have apparently drain the transmission fluid out of the trans pan. check your oil level to see if it is overfilled, this would be a good indication especially if you didn't have to refill the oil with at least 5 quarts.

one thing ive warned my friends to never do and that is to never have your trans flushed cause you may have new fluids but what about the trans filter its old and iots there for that reason to keep dirt and metal; shavings from the bands so try having your oil and filter in the transmission replaced , pull your trans dip stick and on a white piece of paper put a drop of trans oil that you have in your trans at that very moment it should be redish pink but if its brown and smells really bad then the problem is in the oil and filter . change it before u have to replace the whole trans

Transmission will not go into gear causing car not


Are you saying that the shifter itself is not working correctly? Try putting the trans in neutral and see if the engine will start. If so, you may have a bad neutral safety switch.

If this does not help, or the shifter itself is not working smoothly, you possibly have a linkage issue.

'99 silverado 4x4,new trans,no gears.


I don't see you did anything wrong per your description.
With the engine off, check the level of the transmission oil, replace the dipstick, start the truck and recheck the fluid level, level should drop. This will indicate the front pump is working.

Next, with truck running, put transmission into any gear, then return to park position. Do you hear any ratcheting noise.

Let me know.

2003 Grande Caravan Trans fluid capacity


Have you checked the owners manual? Called the dealer or a local transmission shop? Also, does it have an external cooler? this will make a difference. Are you changing the fluid and filter and need to know how much to put in? If so start with 3 liters/quarts and then cycle through the gears from park to low allowing each gear to engage. keep checking the fluid level as you go, fluid is checked with the vehicle running and in park.
