    no you dont need to program anything. there so many things that it could be. did it do it before trans replacement. is the drive shaft bent,u joints. was a used trans.

    Before doing anything else, check that universal joints are good and not loose or binding.

If your talking about the 97 Jeep, then no, it doesn't need a quick Learn procedure done on it because it isn't a "adaptive learning" transmission.

sounds like your automatic transmission is stuffed, take it to a mechanic for a second opinion but it seems to me like you'll need to either rebuild or replace the transmission

Reset transmission


put it in 1st gear, drive it and get up to 50 mph. once you hit 50, take your foot off the gas and let it decelerate at its own pace, no brakes. it should pop out of limp at that point. Also, this needs to be done cold.

My 1989 Chevey Celebrity started shaking the other day the front part of the car, not like the front end is messed up but it shakes.


Could be a wheel, tire, or axle shaft.
You could rotate the tires front to back and see if the vibration moves.
If it does the problem is one of the tires or wheels.
If it stays in the front, its probably one of the axle shafts. It could also be a hub bearing or something loose in the suspension. But a loose suspension part would normally show up when you hit a bump rather than on a smooth road.

At 40 mph the car starts to shake. It last to 5o


I have this same car with exactly the same problem. Begins shaking at 40mph and stops shaking as soon as you let off the gas, but then begins again as soon as you press on the gas and smooths out as you get over 50. And the shaking is not felt through the steering wheel. Solution: Replace the transmission mounts. There are two of them, one on each side mounted on the frame right next to the shock strut. There is also a front and rear engine mount, but I replaced the two as described and shaking is gone.

Transmission problems


This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
