1996 chevrolet lumina minivan transmission problems

I start the car, and i move the gear selector into Rear or Overdrive or anything, but the car won't move. I checked the transmission fluid and it was a little low, but I added the appropriate amount. Still, no response. The car does kick into gear however sometimes luckily it seems, after several minutes of playing with the shifter back and forth. Can someone please help me? is it possible that my transmisiion is damaged; I put a whole new one about2 yrs ago.??

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

1991 chevy lumina automatic transmission, slips in 4th and overdrive, and you can push the car in all gears except park


Well, you can push any automatic trans car in any gear except park.
As for slipping in overdrive which is 4th gear, if the trans is full of fluid, you're probably looking at replacing it to fix it.
Could be a list of things such as clutches or dirt in the valve body.

Having problems shifting into 3rd gear and overdrive-changed the modulator and no improvement-could it be the control solenoid? tranny has 135k miles but was serviced at 25 k intervals.


Generally if the solenoid in the transmission is dirty or defective, then one will have problems shifting into a given gear.

If the problem is to be solved, remove, rebuild, and reinstall the transmission.

1999 chevy lumina doesn't shift into overdrive, why?


If it won't go into overdrive a speed sensor within the transmission may not be sending the shift signal to the transmission. Check fluid levels to make sure that's not causing the problem. Also, check that the fluid is red color and clean.

Transmission probably needs to be serviced at a reputable shop if you want this problem fixed.

I have a 98 Tahoe that just recently after driving on the highway coming into town to a stop and then accerating again has a big thump (****) almost like someone bumping the rear of the car. A friend said...


If you think it could be the overdrive, try driving with the transmission selector in 3rd, rather than overdrive. If it helps, may have diagnose the problem.

Another option, not sure if that year model had the tow/haul function, where you could set the transmission shift point to change because you were hauling a trailer.

If you can narrow down the problem to the transmission for sure, I would still start with a transmission filter & fluid change, cheaper than rebuilding a transmission.

1995 CHEVROLET LUMINA TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


guest, you should really buy a shop manual for this car. giovachi, check the trans fluid level and see if it smells burnt. if it smells burnt, take the car to a transmission shop and have the transmission checked out by a specialist. your lights and guages acting up after a new engine was put in could be some wires didnt get plugged back in or even a bad ground somewhere, but I would go back to whoever installed the engine and make them fix it.
