Check Engine Light Comes On

When the check engine light comes on the transmission goes in to third gear and won't go in overdrive or any other gear. I stop turn engine off restart it the check engine light will go out and the transmission will shift normal. I seem to only get it to do this after it gets driven for a while it has never done it when the car is cold.

    We tried to get a code but when we had it checked it did not have a code. We think since the check engine light goes out when you turn it off that it does not leave a code.

    The check engine light comes on and the car stutters, stammers and stall and stays in one gear, however turning it off and restarting it resets the check light but leaves no code.

 I had the same problem with my Elantra 2001 GLS two years go. What I had to do was to replace O2 sensor (I think there were couple of them - one was busted).
Dealer will probably read their own code and find which sensor but that costs a lot.

You need to access the code and the code should tell you what's wrong.

Go to the dealer and they can do it for you.

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

My transmission is hanging in third and want go in overdrive. The overdrive light is blinking. It's a 02 explorer.


First, change your transmission fluid and filter while the engine and tranny are hot(to get out particles that may be jamming the overdrive gear)! Next, check to see if the overdrive motor is running when you flip it to overdrive. If not...change the overdrive motor.

O/D Off light goes off and on


the overdrive is the 4th gear. considering that it may not be an issue with your computer switching gears to fourth but an issue with the transmission itself. this light could be a signal instead of and engine warning light where the engine is fine but the transmission isnt.

Hi!

It might be the reason why the check engine light come on. And all i can say is you need to scan your can and pull the code and bring it back to see whats wrong because it maybe some to do with Transmission shift solenoids usually when they get stuck open or close a code gets stored in the ECM. Good luck

I don't know your year, but transmissions shifting is partly controlled by the throttle position sensor. Have the computer check for codes. If the TPS comes up this is most likely your problem.

Check your transmission fluid level to make sure the appropriate amount of fluid is in. Some transmissions will **** or cut the vechicle off if not enough fluid is in the transmission.

Transmission won't go into overdrive when engine is hot


Lexus's have a complicated system of electronics that control the function of the transmission.Under normal operating conditions the transmission is controlled by the ecu and by a secondary system called a drivetrain control module. usually when a fault occurs it sends a code to the ecu and the check engine light comes on.
If this light does not come on then typically the electronic modulator is at fault and needs to be replaced.
If the check engine light comes on when the vehicle is hot i need this code to guide u further for the repair.
If u want to attempt the repair , be wary. its messy and takes time to do to do it right.
