Check the atf fluid level ad as needed, if full transmission solenoid may be shot or tranny is shot.

SOURCE: auto tranny wont shift out of first gear

Sounds like the modulator or a vacuum line..
The modulator tells the trani when to shift and is controled by vacuum presure..
Check for damaged or disconnected vacuum lines stemming from the trani..
Or maybe the modulator linkage is stuck..
Changing the fluid is a good idea too..

SOURCE: Slower engine speed in 4wd mode, 1st or 2nd gear (auto trans)

mcdevito75 here, I would figure yes, if your shifting while in motion, definetly yes, when you shift your changeing gear ratios in the 4 wheel drive or the transmission, this will cause the engine to slow but also make the gas pedal moe responsive.If you feel or hear this slowing down of the engine while standing still (at a red light) it"s most likely the computer contolled sensor in the tranny. I woulkd still check with my local shop for their advice too.

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Chevy S10 4X4, Auto.Transmission,

Normal 0 To take off and put back the transmission cost around $700 labor. To open up, repair and put things together, parts and labor start at $800. So the total would be at least $1500.
Buying a used Transmission for $300, and replace the bed one for $700, would cost you $1000 at least.
The question is:
Could you find a dissent transmission of a 1986 Chevy S10 4X4.
The answer is:
Chanced are slim or none.

SOURCE: Auto transmission wont go into 4th

This is a very common problem which can be fixed for under $100 without removing the transmission

It is the end clutch which can be removed as an assymble aout the side of the transmission. New parts will run under a hundred. Serch and you will find pages that show pictorials on this repair.

2004 mazda 6 wont shift out of 1st gear smoothly. It whines, then finally catches. If it's cylinder (will be 3rd one) which number is it?


your gear selector linkage cable has come adrift from the linkage bracket just below the battery tray ,you can temporarily fix with two cable ties ,but will need to replace one of the two cables one is for neutral and the other is to select gear

60 series toyota cruiser has trouble changing gears only 1st 2nd gear auto


You have a stuck solenoid in the auto, The only way to fix it is to remove the solenoids and manually free them up, This means removing the oil and oil pan and removing the solenoids.

Gears stick


If your car is a manual gear change, your clutch may need adjusting or repair or the gearbox oil may need changing.
If your car is an auto check to see if you are using the correct transmission fluid , Peugeot autos do not use normal ATF and will fail if the correct fluid is not used.
Hope this helps Marshall

Go to your nearest auto store and ask if they have a OBD diagnostic scanner, this is a free item that most auto stores have for their customers. Auto Zone, Checkers or any chain of auto parts store. G luck
