When 1994 lincoln continetal is warm will not shift into second or reverse


The transmission is failing.
Check fluid for level and quality. If level is low, add transmission one pint (16 ounces) at a time until the level on the dipstick is correct. If the level is good but the transmission fluid is dark in color, tan in color, watery, or obviously burnt, start by having the transmission fluid and filter replaced.

My 1994 Voyager does not want to upshift. It stays in 2nd gear. I used to be able to let it warm up, turn it off, restart it and it would shift. It is now stuck and will not go into 3rd gear. It seems this...


The solenoid for upshifting to higher gears is likeley to be bad. The VSS or speed sensor can be tested by driving the vehicle and observing the speedometer representing accurate speed.

This sensor is used for shift points as well.

I think the transmission needs to be flushed and filled for about $100 or so at shop that does this service.

If that does not solve the problem, a rebuild or replacement transmission will be necessary to fix the problem, if you plan on keeping the car.

Warming it up to get it to shift gives me hope that maybe changing the fluid will help, but can't guarantee it will solve the problem completely.

Transmission must be torn down and rebuilt, in my experience.

How does the 97 dodge intrepid auto shift work?


when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission

I just replaced my tranny. It was working great


About 3 months ago, during my 25-mile commute to the ambulance base where I volunteer, my transmission started acting up. After a few minutes of driving normally, it started to upshift very hard. Each upshift was accompanied by a noticeable "Bang!" and it felt like the car was hitting a pot hole.

I immediately stopped and checked the tranny fluid at a service station, but the fluid level was fine and it didn't have any burnt smell. The car has 76K miles on it and the transmission fluid was changed at 50K per the maintenance schedule. I had no choice but to continue on to the base, driving very gently.

I made a stop about 5 minutes before arriving, to pick up dry cleaning. I was in the cleaners for about 8 minutes, and when I came out the hard shifting had completely disappeared. The car drove smoothly for the next 3 months.

Now, this problem seems to recur any time I drive the car even remotely hard. We're not talking about full-throttle accelerations here, since my everyday driving stays below 2500 RPM to save on gas. But if I'm in a hurry and start driving a touch harder - crossing over 3500 RPM - then the tranny will start shifting hard within minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes with the engine off, and the problem is gone again

1994 Buick Regal "shudders" while driving/ won't always up-shift


It is a 24 year old vehicle (made in 94), it probably needs to retire :>)

Take it to a transmission specialist rather than a normal garage, as it sounds like a sensor problem. It may also be rubber mountings that have perished, and the engine and transmission are only partially mounted to the chassis.

What are these buttons for? e t c drive & side of shifter


The ETC switch is a transmission control device. When it is not active, the transmissions shifts normally. When the ETC is engaged, it alters the shift points.
Example: the 1-2 upshift occurs normally between 18-20 mph. Now, say you are towing something, or are carrying a heavy load...engage the ETC, and the trans computer will "hold" the 1-2 upshift until 22-24 mph. It is just for that, prolonging the shift points, due to load.

The switch on the side of the shifter is for the Overdrive. Engaged (the OD light is off) the transmission shifts into overdrive. This saves you gas. When the button is dis-engaged (the OD OFF light is on) , the transmission does NOT shift into overdrive. It is best to leave the overdrive ON, and the ECT OFF to obtain maximum fuel mileage. I hope this has answered your question. Please feel free to comment back if you have any other questions. Thanks for chosing FixYa for assistance.
