Hi

it seems that the gear bushings have worn out. you need to take your car to a mechanic to have the bushings changed. Also, please check it your car has enough Automatic Transmission Fluid.

i am always here
kind Regards

    Errr, it might also be due to the "Hold" button (lower of the two buttons on the stick shift) being pressed while in 2nd gear. This activates an "Hold" function for the gear the car is in when the button is pressed. Press the button again and I think you'll find the problem disappears - without resorting to paying extortionate fees to an underqualified "expert" in the trade. 8-)

My mazda familia automatic is not shifting to 2,3,4 gear


Hi there
Well it sounds like you have either trans oil problem or pump problem or convertor problem but all these will be stopping the the pump in the box from shifting up the last 3 gears as it has to tighten the bands on forward and another for the reverse.
Not unless you have a problem with the selector going in to the g/box.
Other wise call into the automatic trans people and get it checked before you do internal damage. then it starts getting big $$$$$$$$$$

No reverse shift?


I would say you have broken you reverse band, the only cure is remove the gearbox(major), Does you gearbox have a reverse servo, it is normally on the side of the box

My mazda 323 familia automatic transmission is not changing gears.


Use a scanner to confirm whether you might have a fault on the automatic gearbox,or the gear box ecu is not working or the gear box is un serviceable and needs replacement.

Erratic gear change of automatic mazda 323, despite new ATF. Sometimes a heavy knocking sound when stopping.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Pretty much a torque converter issue. If the torque converter is faulty the car tends to shift unusually. Have the torque converter replaced and a smooth drive and shifting will be noticeable.

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

What would be the torque setting for the cylinder head of a mazda 323 familia with a b6 engine, twin cams. thanks.


Remember you have pre loaded cam gear's that have to be loaded, or it will make kinda of a lifter noise but not lifter's.
Torque
step #1 17-19 ft.lbs
step #2 additional 85-95 deg

I have a mazda astina familia 1.5 automatic. i have had the transmission checked by a technician and it is fine. i am getting power loss from engine.it seems the engine has to go into high revs before...


i think you need a new mechanic, i got that problem twice, each time the transmission had to be changed because the 1st gear was shot. i eventually changed to a 5fwd gear-box which increased performance like you would never imagine.

Have you checked air and fuel filters? If dirty or never changed (fuel) - replace them.
