Transmission on my 2001 L200 has been acting up...

While driving home, my car all of the sudden will only shift at 4000 rpm's. And then it won't hift past second gear. If i turn the ignition off for s few seconds, the car will run fine. I am also needing to get my heater core fixed. what would cause my transmission to do this?

I think you should try changing the fuel filter by the sound of things. If your engine is starving for gas it can cause the transmission to do all sorts of things. If, once your car is running well, you still have transmission problems, you can try changing the transmission oil and filter, and the shift speed sensor.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

My 2001 saturn won't go into reverse, it engine is on but nothing happens


take to any repair shop which has a lift. ask them to check the transmission linkage. they do this by moving the the linkage while someone watches from underneath. if the linkage is good, then you need to go to a transmission shop and get an estimate.

1997 chey pu auto trans 1st and 2nd shift good drive doesn't shift until rpm's are 3500-4000 rpm


Do you get a check-engine light, or does the transmission O/D light flash? Many times, this is due to a speed sensor on the transmission. When the sensor goes, the transmission has to do default shift timing and it will shift very late. Usually, this will set a code in the onboard computer.

2001 impala shifting issue


I have a 2001 base impala and 6 months ago I experienced the same problem. I was driving on the street and all of a sudden my car acted as if it was in neutral. I pulled over and neither of the shifts engaged. The dealership said that my torque converter went bad. Somehow the bad torque converter caused shavings to get into my transmission. They gave me a new torque converter and flushed my transmission. My transmission was almost 2 years old; therefore, it was under warranty.
