    Do you know if you have a 4 speed auto or a 3 speed auto? (4 speed)- shifter says prnd321. (3 speed)- shifter says prnd21

    When you say it won't shift it just hold first gear forever? If the computer isn't getting the speed reading it won't shift. But if the speedometer is working that means the vss is working. What you need to do is drive the vehicle with a scanner on the to see if the speed signal is registering in the computer and if the computer is turning your shift solenoids on and off. Do you have a check engine light on?

My 93 dodge Dakota runs up to 4000 rpms before it shifts but it still idles really high after that. its a v6 3.9L automatic. I think its the shift linkage but I don't know how to adjust it. ive...


If it goes into gear correctly it's not the linkage. I.e drive reverse etc. I would suspect a pressure issue in the trans for the high shift rpm. Possibly low pump pressure or a valve body issue. The high idle could be a result of this or possibly a sticking cable if it has cruise. Possible vacuum issue also.

How does the cruise control work and the automatic stick shift work in the 2005 hyundai sonata


cruiose control is a seprate system from if you raise the hood you ll see 2 cables going to your throttle body injection 1 will be for your foor peddle and the other for cruise control ther independent from each other as you electonically move the buttons the cable will adjust for speed of what you desire
once the brakes are applied the system will dissengage all together from the throttle untill its is activated again hope i was able to help you with that
not quiet sure on how you meanabout the auto stick shift

Trans wont shift into over drive on 1992 chevy 5.7 liter k1500


Do all the other gears work fine? Shift point at the right time? 1 to 2, 2 to 3, What speed does it shift 1 to 2 at light throttle? These are good for having stuck TV valves or broken TV cables. Does it **** when it shifts or when you put it in gear?

Transmission wont shift


check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.

1995 sunfire wont shift gear


There were two different automatic transmissions in the Sunfire that year,the 3 speed trans designated the 3T40,and the 4 speed trans designated the 4T40.If your car has the 4 speed trans,there will be a circle around the "D" on your gear selector indicator.The 3 speed trans will not have a circle around the "D".The 3 speed trans works off of a cable called the TV or Throttle Valve cable.This cable should be checked where it engages the throttle body around the area where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body,on the engine.If the cable becomes disconnected for whatever reason,the trans will not shift out of 1st gear in most cases.If the car has the 4 speed trans,this model trans is totally electronic,and the vehicle should have the codes pulled out.For every trouble code,there is a diagnostic route to follow to repair the malfunction.
