1995 new yorker transmission shifting problems

When I first start the car in the morning I can drive about 1/2 mile before problems start. When I come to a red light and stop the car sounds like it is stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear and all the indictors lights are lit up. If I shut the car off the indictors light will go back to normal and the car will be in low gear. The car will take off in low gear but shift quickly into 3rd and sounds like its slipping. I can shut it off again it the same happen all day long. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: The A-604 ultradrive transmission goes into 2nd gear or neutral at ANY speeds

I've rebuilt hundreds of these transmissions through the years,typical parts lists range from solenoid blocks and TCM's to completely wiped out gear trains.Typical price for rebuilding that trans with new electricals included is any where from $2000-$3000 with a 12/12 or 36/36 warranty.

SOURCE: Transmission with codes P0218 P0732 P0733 P0740 P0846 P1790

I agree, this is a lot of codes. I would tend to think this would be electrical, perhaps computer are a loose connection? These trannys I have rebuilt so far usually have a couple of codes related to the problem but not this many - all over the place.

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

My 1995 bmw 740il wont shift into manual drive. im not sure what gear cars in but the trans isnt shifting. both of the cables to the throttle is broken i discovered could that be the problem and what

Service the transmission for the shifting issue. However going from auto to manual is an electrical switch. Car wont shift till car is at high enough rpm level.

Probly no one ever changed the trans fluid,now you did and its to late,But get a bottle of Lucas trans slip.cost about 12$ at walmart,put the whole bottle in the trans,it is really thick, so heat the bottle on a register for a good while so that it will pour right in in this cold wheather.Let car run for 20 min. than try driveing it.if it wont move,let it rin another 20 min. if it moves drive it around untill it starts driveing better ,might take up to 3 days to get moved through trans real good.It worked for me on 6 cars now

When was last time trans fluid & filter were changed? Should be done every 30k or 3years - sooner of you do any towing. Have it flushed also when doing the filter change.

I have a 1992 chrysler new yorker, it will not go over 40 miles per hour, is that a transmission problem?

OK, if the engine is overspeeding at 40 mph and won't rev any higher, then I would say the transmission is not up shifting to higher gears. A solenoid blocked up or defective may be the problem. I would then have the transmission replaced or rebuilt to solve the problem.

If the engine is not overspeeding, then I would look at the engine itself not providing enough horse power for the transmission to up shift in the first place.

Good luck on this repair.

The check gearbox light comes on when you shift to drive (automatic transmission). The acceleration is very slow unless you shift it to 1 or 2. Once you get going you can put in drive and it will...

You need a new neutral safety switch. The car does not know what gear it is in so it goes into safe mode and sets off in third gear. There about £150 new but i got one from the scrap yard for a fiver. There is a guide on one website that shows you how recondition the switch but can't remember which one.

Transmission will not shift out of second gear. Cannot drive on freeway as I cannot drive this car over 45 miles per hour.

If flushing the transmission fluid doesn't help (and I'm sure it won't), replace the transmission.

Starting problems on a 1995 new yorker

Could be a few things. You said starter works, does it turn the car over or just whine?

If the car is turning over it could be a spark of fuel problem. Check your spark plugs, fuel filter and get your pump tested. The fule pump can be heard working when you click you car to the "on" postion, you will hear a buzzing sound. Try leaving your car in the "on" position for about 30 secs, then try starting it. I would also get your battery tested as there may not be enough power getting to the starter to fully turn the flywheel.
