SOURCE: Vibration when in gear, and stalling.

The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Avalanche Transmission Problem

i had the same problem, its the torque converter. I took my 05 c/a in because i was having shifting problem, the long and short of it is there is a breather on the tranmission that sucks in water from the road. the water and the atf dont mix. the dealer put in a torque converter and changed the fluid and installed a redesigned transmission breather.

It's a 2000 Isuzu rodeo that will want shift in higher gears acts like it's in N shifts in to drive and reverse fine but want shift in higher gears


we cant guess your drive line, not now or ever.
so why ask. us?
my guess you mean the car drives in 1st gear but will not upshift,
and flares, in a false neutral.
wont and want is speed wrong 2 times, why?
Is car with TOD? torque on demand option, we cant see the dash board, we be like blind.
check fluild levels yet,
get the box serviced last decade, (a full flush and filter,) sure no.
check fuses, maybe car has TCM that cant up shift due to fuse blown.
and last did you scan it, if not why not
that be 3rd step after levels, fuses, then scan.
if the TCM cant see sensors, it cant upshift,
TCM is the tranny brain.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

Reving up when in gear driving


check your trans fluid, if its been a while flush it and change the filter if its reving and your speed doesnt change (slipping) if your speed changes check the TPS and speed sensors on the trans as well when you change fluid.

Car will not move 2000 acura 3.2


ok you crank the engine over, it starts,
it can rev. to 3000 rpm for 1 second in park ?
y/n?
you then select, all gears forward and reverse and car can not move on flat ground, all brakes off?
can you push car in neutral on flat ground, , y/n ?

if no, brakes are bad. (or something more serious , ask)
if yes, tranny is dead (but....)

the if RPM rises, on engine (right foot action) and car MPH is 0
and rpm keeps rising that is a bad tranny (called slip or flare) in "D"
if you set the brakes hard,
and do the A/T stall test. (read the FSM)
and the RPM is way low that is a bad engine. (weak engine power)

if the RPM is good, stall tested. the engine and tranny are working. ( brakes stuck or frozen in ice?)
if the RPM flares, at stall test. it's a bad tranny
do the stall test for 5 sec max. rest for 15min and repeat.
STALL, test, makes tons of ATF heat. and heats the TC big time
RTM, it's all there. See FSM and read the manual.

Started having trouble getting it into gear while stopped. Would have to rev up engine a bit and play the shifter in. About 20 min. later while shifting from 2nd to 3rd had no gears . now it won't find any...


Sounds like your cluch has worn out. Can you select gears normally when the engine is off? If you can, then maybe you could check the clutch cable adjustment. That may fix the problem. If not, with the car in an area away from other cars and buildings, select a gear with the engine off, and with your foot on the clutch, start the car. If the car starts and feels like it wants to drive off (with your foot still on the clutch), then the clutch is not disengaging the engine from the gearbox. Gearbox removal time unfortunately.
