Hi there.On your transmission there is a metal tag with numbers on it.The tag is located on the top center of the bellhousing and about 6 inchs or so from where the trans. bolts to the eng. block.It will be hard to see and you may have to remove your air filter box to see it.It should have numbers on it like for instance 1F1P-AA or a different num.The code can be broken down to tell you the type of trans you have.Call a auto recycling yard or a dealership and they can tell you what you have by the code.Hope this helps you out.John.

Trans slips replaced still slips


  • check your "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor" ECTS, make sure all your connections on the transmission are secured. I would try a bottle of Seafoam, or some Transmission cleaner (as a last resort), or some LubeGard from your auto parts store.
  • There like several types of it, check the website Lubegard.com for the specifices on which one to use. I've heard Transmission guys, swear by this stuff, that it will fix a lot of problems.
    But I wouldn't try it on a CVT transmission, or any kind of transmission that has a CVT belt drive system.

So, i have a Tracker that has been changed, by the previous owner, from factory auto trans to a 5 speed. It has an issue with the engine (bogs) and the gauges (go haywire), when you run/ shift into gear....


Hi, the wiring is certainly different as the automatic has shift and TCC solenoids that the manual does not have. The safety interlock is also different--on the clutch pedal for manual versus the trans range sensor on the auto. Also, the backup light switch is separate on the manual versus integrated to the range switch on the auto. The speed sensor may be different or the same, I'm not sure. Now, the real difference in the drivability is that the auto trans is controlled by the PCM, and the data is fed back to the PCM for proper engine operation. If the previous owner didn't change the computer, then the algorithms in the computer are not optimized for a maunal transmission. I'm not sure that is the reason for your problems. Can you find out if the PCM in the car is the original versus a replacement for a manual transmission?

Will not go into over drive and reverse lights will not come on. computer says trans sensor is bad. I am wondering where the sensor is on the transmission.


The transmissin might have several sensors atached to it, the easiest thing to do is go to an auto parts store and ask to see a "trans Sensor" so you can compare it, you will have to crawl under the vehicle and look at the trans.

My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode for the transmission. It is staying in second gear and will not shift higher. What could be the reason?


The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!

How to change the transmission fulid on a suzuki forenza


there is no dip stic on the forenza no need to go to the dealer and pay for it simply jack the entire car off the ground enough to get yourself under it make sure u support it with appropriate stands. you can check the fluid by removing the plug from the side of the trans u will need a special tool for this u can get from an auto parts store after removing the plug check to make sure the fluid is right to the brim of the plug hole then turn the car on and shift through the gears R,D,1,2,4 and then back again hold in each gear for about 5 sec then turn the car off crawl back under and check again . if low add a little at a time until its filled u can get a small hand pump with a tube on it from auto store u put this in a quart of trans fluid makes the job alot easier . as for the other problem it is you Trans range sensor $65 dollars from the dealer or $45 from OEMsuzukiparts.com not very hard to change Hope this helps
