Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Transmission wont shift to third

I have a 700r transmission in my camaro that was supposedly rebuilt for 1000 bucks not to long ago. while i was driving it started slipping, then overheated, i parked it. went to the store and the gear started winding out into first and second, then when it got to third, nothing, just like it was in nuetral. the transmission came out of a 91 camaro and is now in an 84 iroc. im thinking all they did was change the torque converter and call it rebuilt. do you think it may be something smaller? do shops usually do an estimate for free? or should i cut my losses and by a new one from the junkyard

If you have lost third you have an internal problem. It will either be the input carrier, third/forth clutches, or a valve body issue. You may price a rebuild job at a trans shop, or a trans from a wrecking yard. 700R4 trans is getting hard to find from wrecking yards. Good Luck

1997 Chev. Z-28 Camaro shifts from 2nd to neutral sometimes, other times it does it from 3rd to 4th. Also won't downshift from 4th to 2nd in drive. trouble code 1870 appears, transmission has been rebuilt...


code p 1870 refers to transmission component slipping
the transmission may need clutch and band adjustment or a pump pressure test check as it may not be producing enough pressure to keep components in place

Transmission does not shift in the third and fourth gear


Well could be a couple of different things wrong.
If it is an automatic transmission could be the pressure solenoids in the transmission. or some thing is broken in the gears.
If it is a standard it could be the synchro gears inbetween that let you shift into the next gear.
Needless to say unless you are a transmission mechanic, take it to the transmission professionals and they will tell u if it can be fixed or depending on the hours for labor, or if u really need your car, you can have a rebuilt transmission installed in about 2 days. Rebuilding yours could take up to a week depending on the experience of the mechanic. I have worked on standard transmissions but I wouldnt even try an automatic.
I had a rebuilt automatic put into my chev pickup in under a weekend for 1300 bucks, but I had a shift kit installed as well while I waited lol.
hope it helps

93' Grand Cherokee does not auto-shift to high gear until I hit 50-mph.


This is most likely the throttle position sensor. It sounds odd I know, but the throttle position sensor helps tell the transmission when to shift. This same thing happened to my Jeep. The sensor is located on the intake manifold on the engine and costs around 45 bucks.

To the guy who spent 2300 dollars getting a transmission rebuilt: They saw you coming and you got totally screwed over. I can get a cherokee transmission rebuilt any day of the week in the range of 800 to 1000 dollars. WOW check out your shops and mechanics a little better before you jump into a rip off.

Transmission rebuilt by a local guy solenoid problem


If what your saying is that after you take it from the shop this started happening then he needs to replace this for you. The reason you had the transmission rebuilt was to make sure everything work properly he was also suppose to check the pressure which i mean by doing a series of test to make sure everything was working and to conclude what was wrong so this way he know what to change long story short you didn't get your transmission rebuilt properly they need to return your money or pay for this part yet again i think you was being ripped off by the rebuilt shop.good luck

Test the transmission module. It controls everything the transmission does, the timing of shift points, gear selection, overdrive, etc
