SOURCE: long time to shift in 3rd gear

Try a new transmission filter and fluid. A lot cheaper than a transmission and probably the problem

SOURCE: transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.

Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.

SOURCE: 92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear

Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

SOURCE: my 97 chevy blazer won't shift past 3rd gear

Drop the pan, odds are the shift solenoid is out, its located at the front of the trans on the driver side. I'm sure your check engine light is on that will comment about the timing/shift solenoid being bad. I had the same problem with mine. The solenoid had plastic coming out of the inside. To remove it you'll find a small C clip holding it in, just take a small screw driver and pull the clip out. The part cost me like $36 from my local dealership. And its a longer solenoid. I believe its the 3-2 downshift solenoid. I do have the part number if you need it.

Why is it taking long time to shift from 2nd to 3rd gear


have a pressure test done on the gear box to determine if the fault is mechanical. Have the bands and clutch packs adjusted . RTUN fault codes to check TCM problems.

Shift lock


It could possibly be a bad electrical connection or poor connection with the transmission. Did the mechanic get any error codes?

02 galant not shifting into 3rd gear


With all the gears working except 3rd, my first assumption is a problem with the transmission more specifically the synchros for the interchange to 3rd gear. The synchros steps between successful gear transitions is the most likely problem but I have not been able to confirm this without speaking to my ASE mechanic resource and assessing your specific issue.

1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift into overdrive.


4th gear failure is a common problem with this transmission, assuming it is an automatic. You should have the vehicle checked for codes by a qualified repair center with the proper scan tool. Also, check fluid level and condition. More often than not, the trans loses 3rd and 4th gear, as these are working off the same set of clutches. 3-4 clutches apply in 3rd, and when the 4th shift is made the 2-4 band applies giving you overdrive. If you have no engine braking in manual 3rd, you definitely have a mechanical failure, no 4th could be an electrical, or mechanical fault.

GEAR SHIFTING CAMRY 2004 2.4 XLI


Hi,

This might be because of the gear box problem. By any chance, did your car face flooding? In such cases, please drain the gear box and replace it with new gear fluids. Also, check if you go in low speeds, you might be able to engage it with ease. Please come back to me if you feel this doesnt solve your issue.

Regards,
Hari

Shift problems


No reverse in just about any automatic transmission is going to be a mechanical failure inside the trans.This is presuming all the forward gears are ok.I have seen on many occassions where the vehicle has no reverse and no 3rd gear and that makes sense,but is still a mechanical failure,as the direct clutches (3rd gear) are applied in reverse as well as 3rd gear,on most automatics.
