Question about 1996 Mazda MX-6
I have a 93 mazda mx6 auto gearbox first the hold button flashed got that sorted out by cleaning the contacts of the plugs on and around the gearbox but the car still wont go into 3rd and 4th gear what could be the problem i checked the gearbox oil it might be a bit over full engine oil is fine car doesnt over heat what do i look for next ?
I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist
