With all the gears working except 3rd, my first assumption is a problem with the transmission more specifically the synchros for the interchange to 3rd gear. The synchros steps between successful gear transitions is the most likely problem but I have not been able to confirm this without speaking to my ASE mechanic resource and assessing your specific issue.

SOURCE: my 97 chevy blazer won't shift past 3rd gear

Drop the pan, odds are the shift solenoid is out, its located at the front of the trans on the driver side. I'm sure your check engine light is on that will comment about the timing/shift solenoid being bad. I had the same problem with mine. The solenoid had plastic coming out of the inside. To remove it you'll find a small C clip holding it in, just take a small screw driver and pull the clip out. The part cost me like $36 from my local dealership. And its a longer solenoid. I believe its the 3-2 downshift solenoid. I do have the part number if you need it.

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

SOURCE: 92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear

Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

What the problem of my tranny its ah manual when im going to down shift in 3rd or 4th gear have ah grinding sound what the problem of my tranny pls help me thank you.


There are brass or bronze sycronizers rings for each gear that help mesh each gear when shifted. Mostly likely they are worn and may need to be replaced. I would check the gear box fluid level and the clutch fluid level also.

I have a mitsubishi galant vr4 1995 made,...i have a problem with the automatic,..it doesnt shift stuck in 3rd gear,...supposed to be its an automatic,..so its start from 3rd gear,..the accelerate comes...


Your transmission has gone in to a limp home mode or fail safe mode, trans computer has locked third gear to prevent any more damage. Needs a diagnostic scan to confirm fault code could disconnect battery for 10 mins and drive to see if problem reaccures. Trans computer common to fail.

Clucth not disengauging....


try this.you have 2 shifter cables.one is select cable the other is shift cable.first put the transmission selector lever in neutral.then move transmission shift lever to 4th gear.depress clutch to if necessary to shift.move the shift lever to the 4th gear position until contacts stop.then you turn the adjuster turn buckle so the shift cable eye aligns with the eye in the gear shift lever.when installing the cable eye. make sure the flange side of plastic bushing at the shift cable end is on the cotter pin side.the cables should be adjusted so the clearance between the shift lever and both stoppers are equal when the shift lever is moved to 3rd and 4th gear. move the shift lever to each position and check that the shifting is smooth.
