Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
You should have a code for the speed sensor on the transmission as well as other codes.

SOURCE: automatic transmission sounds like it stuck in 3rd gear

You need to check the transmission fluid level, if it is low the tranny will not shift. If, however, the fluid is to the proper level then you will need a new transmission.
Try putting new fluid in and look for a leak in the pan gasket, then all you may need is a transmission service. When the service is done the mechanic will look for pieces of metal in the old fluid, if found this is very bad and you will need a new tranny.
You might consider a new or used car, you can definately find a good deal out there!

SOURCE: 1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?

do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.

SOURCE: hard shift from 1st to 2nd, then 2nd to 3rd.

Dont think they changed it yet but the older chrysler units had a rod that went from the throttle linkage to the transmission (maybe a cable now)...If you lengthen the rod it will increase shift pressure and give you an earlier shift.

Switching gears from 1st to 2nd


there is a computer that controls your rpm gauge, your speedo, and your shift. check that and your speed sensor. the sensor is faster and easier.

2002 Nissan maxima stuck in 3rd gear, auto tranny . I was driving the other day to realize the light on the dash said I was in 3rd instead of drive, but my gear shifter was in the drive position ....


Most modern day autos are all electronically controlled, Usually if it detects a fault it can go into limp mode which by default is 3rd gear. The fact your speedo is not working which too is most likely sensor driven then that may be a clue to what is wrong. No speed sensor, no speedo and the transmission control unit is not getting the vehicle speed sense either. So it has no way of knowing what gear to be in or any shift points. I'm thinking it's a sensor issue would be my best guess.

No 5th gear or reverse


I have a 1998 Nissan Frontier, 2wd. I was driving back from lunch one day, and the 5th gear stopped working. Then the next day, the reverse stopped working. It switches into 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th just fine. Please help. What do you think it could be. I have no money to take it to the shop

We have a 2002 chevy trailblazer, V6, the abs & brake light came on. the speedo quit working. it would not shift out of 1st gear unless i put it in 2nd, wouldnt go into 3rd or overdrive at all. &...


Possible problem with one or more wheel speed sensors, or the vehicle speed sensor, or the related wiring connections. I have found rotted out wiring harnesses or connections on wheel speed sensors numerous times. Hope this helps.
