This trans is computer controled if your gages quit working as well I would start checking fuses and relays. If this doesn't provide a solution let me know and I will get my manual out and go a little deeper.

I tiredon the running around asking question about overdrive blinking right after it shift from second to third gear thats were the problem starts overdrive blinking the rest the gear work perfectly


It is safe, and even recommended to use "Drive" and dis-engage the "Overdrive" when driving in the city, and definitely when towing...You can work on the problem by changing tranny fluid, and filter...or look into the Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer bottle treatment...Hope this helps.

Transmission (1994 astro van ) shifts fine sometimes and other times feels like it stuck in 4th gear. i changed the filter and flushed the trans.Whats up with that?


Its more likely the tranny shift solenoids or the power wire going to the tranny. If the tranny loses its ignition feed (12Volts) it will default into limp home mode. This means neither shift solenoid has power and will be in the off position. When both shift solenoids are in the off position this is normally third gear. It will be very labored taking off from a stop being in third gear, but will allow you to still move (thus limp home). Astro vans were not known for it, however full size pickups with the same engine and tranny, would experience a bad ignition switch. It would disable the tranny circuit and no power would get to it, same symptoms. If it sometimes works it won't be a bad fuse, best to have it diagnosed at a reliable transmission shop to verify. Its not as expensive as a tranny overhaul.

1993 Chevy Silverado will not shift in to 2nd 3rd or Overdrive.


Are you sure its stuck in first gear, Its probably in second.. It sounds like a stuck or open shift solenoid in the tranny (4L60E hydra-matic). Depending on the year and type of tranny this was a default setting to either only second or only third gear, should some electrical or transmission hydraulic fault occur. Another common problem for that year is a faulty ignition switch at the key cylinder. It will fail and not send power to the tranny (thus not powering up the shift solenoids). The default (or limp home mode) is when both solenoids are commanded off. They will be both commanded off in second gear (even when the tranny is operating normally).

My silverado's automatic trans. will not change into third or overdrive a mechanic told me it would be best to buy a new GM trans.


Before you buy a new tranny, get a second opinion. It sounds like a stuck or open shift solenoid in the tranny (4L60E hydra-matic). Depending on the year and type of tranny this was a default setting to either only second or only third gear, should some electrical or transmission hydraulic fault occur. Another common problem for that year is a faulty ignition switch at the key cylinder. It will fail and not send power to the tranny (thus not powering up the shift solenoids).

2002 hyundai accent.transmission works great if you leave it in second gear.if leaving the selector in drive the transmission will start out in second and never shift to overdrive.when coming to a stop in...


Hi

Well two of the tranny codes ; P0734 and PO732 indicate gear 2,3,4 ratio incorrect. This can be caused by poor readings at the input and output speed sensors or pulse generators. The P1709 code is in reference to the kickdown servo switch.

Replacing the pulse generator set and TCM reprogramming( as per TSB) may solve your problem, otherwise you have a major component failure in the transmission unit. I would get some line pressures at the transmission checked first.

Sounds like the transmission is in fail safe mode, this happens when there is a transmission fault, you only have two gears 2nd and reverse.

Hope this helps - Steve
