Question about 1993 Chevrolet Beretta

1 Answer

Transmission will not always shift back in 1 gear

While breaking the car down to stop, the automatic transmission will not shift down in the 1.gear, so the engine gets off. After that, it´s able to start the engine, but if i pull in the ''D'' (or any other level, without ''N'') the engine stops at once.
That´s not a permanent problem. The car is a 93er Chevy Beretta with the 3,1 l engine.

TCC solenoid is sticking. Very common with the 125C trans. If you want to just "get by" you can unplug the squarre plug on the front side of the trans and this problem will be gone. It is fine to drive that way - may lose a couple mile per gallon out on the highway but you can drive em forever that way

I am assuming that this is the trans you have. That it isn't an overdrive - no circle around the D?

350z 2004 a/t with 120k miles 3 days ago my car overheated but reached just half of the temp gauge and i stopped the car and by the time it went back to normal i turned off the engine to cool down....

I don't think overheating of the engine has much to do with the transmission, either automatic or manual. If you have an automatic transmission, did you check the fluid? Sometimes low fluid stops certain gears from changing, as the torque converter doesn't have enough fluid to pressurize the servos to engage the clutches.

How do I relplace gear shift?

If you have a stick shift ( floor shift) remove the boot around the gear stick and the insulation on the floor to reveal the 4 bolts that hold the shift turret on to the top of the box. Undo the bolts and lift the gear lever assembly out of the gear box.

What is the difference in the gear lever position between D and M while driving

The tranmission allows you two driving styles fully automatic (D) or manual (M). (D) behaves like a normal transmission while (M) uses the + for gearing up and - for gearing down. You'll notice when you switch to (M) the number of the gear your presently in shows up on the speedo. After that you just operate it as you would a manual. When you come to a stop the transmission will automatically shift down to 1 but as you accelerate you will need to shift the lever forward to the + to shift up. You can switch between both transmission modes while driving.

Feels like the brake is always on & gains no speed

When was the last time you open the transmission ? Is it a standard, or automatic transmission ? When was the last time you change your breaks ? Jack the wehicle up, and try to turn the tires with your hand. your breaks might be too tight.

Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode

I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
