Question about Cars & Trucks
The other day my estima suddenly lost the overdrive gear. There is no clutch slip, just that the revs is higher than normal. Checked the ATF, it is hot but more than sufficient. Changed the ATF including the filter but still the overdrive gear is still not engaging. Asked the mechanic to clean up the valve control unit in the gearbox, still it refuses to engage overdrive. General driving is smooth but without the overdrive, highway travel is troublesome because of the high revs required. Could you suggest areas that i should look at?

IT IS THE STRAINER INSIDE THE PAN IN THE TRANSMISSION,WHEN ITS COOL THE FLUID IS TO THICK TO TRAVEL AND GRITTY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAINER SCREEN,BUT WHEN THE TRANNY WARMS THE FLUID ITS THEN ABLE TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND SHIFT PROPERLY.

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

3 things can be the problem: The button that you press for the overdrive may be damaged and the parts have come loose inside and that was why it would come in and out of overdrive (the whole assembly where the button is) The solenoid which is either inside the tranny or right outside the tranny may have been damaged . You might have 4 soleniods in total. Or your computer is bad. A bad computer will cause more effects to the car as you drive it though. Some mitsubishi engine have a safety thing that if there is something wrong with the tranny or parts there of, it will not allow you full control of options (similar to vanos engines and tranny's in bmw's) I hope this helps.
