Tonight the roads are very icey and slippery. I needed to know what gear shift I should use to be safer? Besides the standard gear shifts, I have L4 and L2.

SOURCE: 1995 sunfire wont shift gear

There were two different automatic transmissions in the Sunfire that year,the 3 speed trans designated the 3T40,and the 4 speed trans designated the 4T40.If your car has the 4 speed trans,there will be a circle around the "D" on your gear selector indicator.The 3 speed trans will not have a circle around the "D".The 3 speed trans works off of a cable called the TV or Throttle Valve cable.This cable should be checked where it engages the throttle body around the area where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body,on the engine.If the cable becomes disconnected for whatever reason,the trans will not shift out of 1st gear in most cases.If the car has the 4 speed trans,this model trans is totally electronic,and the vehicle should have the codes pulled out.For every trouble code,there is a diagnostic route to follow to repair the malfunction.

SOURCE: gear shift knob

Usually there is a small metal clip at the bottom front of the shift knob (looks like a staple.) Just pull it out and pull the knob straight up.

SOURCE: gear shift won't move out of park sometimes

look for transmission shift interlock solenoid fuse.or a bad brake switch will cause transmission not to come out of park.

SOURCE: The gear shift gets stuck and won't shift into

Either the shift knob or the actuator rod under the shift knob has worn out.
Remove the shift knob and pull the actuator rod (plastic) out of the shift lever and inspect it for wear or damage. If the rod is not worn or damaged, replace the shift knob and you will be good to go.
Good luck.

SOURCE: changing the gear shift knob on the G5?

I had this problem for months i wanted a new one that looked better. Here is what i did to remove it. First i went by where the boot ends on the shifter. If you notice it looks like a separate part than the shifter shaft. Take the bottom part that looks different and squeeze then turn counter-clockwise. After just a small turn, not even 45 degrees, pull down and it should reveal the metal and four plastic clips that are holding down the shaft. I then tried to remove this but could not so i did as the original post and removed the top with the gears on it and as i was pulling up on this, the whole thing came off revealing just the metal shaft. The plastic clips at the bottom were just there to help hold the knob from coming off. I hope this is helped some

Will a transmission speed sensor help transmission shift better every time? Sometime shifts slow when changing gear


Probably not ! A few different sensors on the vehicle have a say or input to the PCM or TCM that the module uses to control shift points ! My suggestion would be to take to a transmission shop where they have diagnostic tools to check it . They can see on the scan tool if a sensor is out of range , needing replacement ! I'd hate to see you waste your money replacing the sensor an not changing anything ! Besides you mite have a hidden condition that could become a big problem down the road ! Have you ever had a trans service done , filter an fluid change ? That mite help !

After battery disconnect what needs reprogram - 2001 town and country


Besides the normal stuff, like the radio stations preset and the clock, the only thing that has to be reprogramed on these vans is the shifting, somtimes it looses its shift points, you will need to reconnect the battery and then drive the van and you will see if it doesnt shift gears like it used to, it may take longer to shift, to correct this problem dissconnect battery for 10min, then connect it back and start the van and place the shifter all the way down to low, slowly roll out to road and take off you will shift the gears your self, note that the way you shift is the way its programed, so you will take off and at about 15mph you will shift to 2 and then i think at 30mph 3 and so on till you get to drive, good day.

When do I use the d 5 gear in acura 2003 tl 3.2 liter


Pretty much all the time!

D3, D4, and D5 are all just *DRIVE* like on any automatic transmission, EXCEPT
that the number next to the D is the "highest gear the automatic transmission will go into".
The Acura just gives you a choice, in case you don't want to go into a higher gear (like if it's slippery traction or a steep hill, etc.)

1 means: Manual gear. FIRST GEAR ONLY.
2 means: Manual gear. SECOND GEAR ONLY.
D3 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 3rd gear.
D4 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 4th gear.
D5 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 5th gear.

I just bought a 2000 Nissan Frontier and I'd like to know the correct way to shift on the fly into and out of 4WD? I don't want to mess it up. Also is it ok to use 4WD if pavement is just wet or will that...


you can shift on the fly from 2 hi to 4 hi at any time as long as you are not under power or in other words on the gas. Hold at a steady speed or let up on gas pedal a little bit then shift, DO NOT shift truck when vehicle is speeding up or taking off. Also do not shift when wheels are spinning or when you are turning a corner. The same goes for shifting from 4 hi to 2 hi. ** Now to shift into 4 lo the truck should be stopped and put trans shift into nuetral then shift transfercase into 4 lo, and never exceed 25 mph in 4 lo position !!!!!!! To shift out of 4 lo and go to 4 hi or 2 hi stop vehicle and shift trans into nuetral then make your 4x4 shift then put trans into forward or reverse gear and VROOOOOM your on your way. Remember to NEVER and i mean NEVER shift into 4 lo while vehicle is moving forward or reverse as you will do serious damage to any and all parts of drive train. You should not run 4x4 at all unless you need to pull something where you need extra traction like a boat out of water,a stuck vehicle,or if roads are slippery, or muddy. also don't be alarmed as sometimes when in 4 wheel drive and you turn corners you will notice a binding or jerking motion, this is normal and if this is occurring i would recommend going back to 2 hi position. HAPPY TRAILS to you with the new toy. I only buy vehicles with 4x4 and have never owned a 2 wheel drive in my 31 yrs of driving. I love the idea that i have extra power and traction options when i need it,the only bad thing is your boss says " what do you mean you can't make it in,you have a 4 wheel drive!

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

While sitting in bumper to bumper traffic moving slowly the car then just went out of gear and won't go in drive or reverse, just like it in neutral. I've had to replace both front hub assemblies already....


Have someone move the gear selector while you watch the linkage under the hood. See if the controls move. If they do the problem is inside the trans.

Yes the vehicle could have been damaged by improper towing. It could also be the accident that you were in. You must have tried to get out before you realized you were stuck too bad to move. This would have strained the transmission if the car would not move on its own.

Check your trans fluid and see if it is low, going offroad could have made you lose your trans fluid. Hopefully you just have connection problems with the shift linkage.

Transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly


Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!

there are shift forks in the shift linkage inside the transmission that are worn because you rest your hand on the shifter between shifts and while waiting at a light this will require the transmission to be rebuilt to cure then take your hand completely off the shifter between shifts and at lights when you are waiting.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! rating and anyhing else I can do to help this problem contact me by fixya or
