    When replacing the trans or clutch, have you ever replaced the pilot bearing in the back end of the crankshaft? If not, it can do bad things inside the transmission.

I have a 98 Chevy cavalier , it has Manuel transmission, it will only go in 3rd and 4th gear, what could be the problem


It could obviously be the tranny is gone, but you would want to make sure you have enough clutch flood and the clutch is fully engaging. I had a leak in my 98 cavalier clutch fluid, and when it got low, it would not fully engage the clutch, simply making it hard to get into gear. Its DOT3 fluid. If so try reversing a little bit and gently tiring to get into gear. I believe 1st and 2nd gear share the same gear selection fork inside the tranny. Drain fluid and look for metal.

1988 Chev. Van G30, auto. Trans., shifts fine from 1st to 2nd, but trying to go into high(3rd) gear takes a very long time getting into 3rd. gear. You can feel the holding back then after the speed picks...


Try using Lucas transmission fix. This product works great. Check your tranny fluid first (warm engine in park) it must be red and not black (contaminants) and not light pink and foamy (water), both require a visit to a transmission shop.
Before adding the Lucas, if your tranny level is normal, you MUST remove the same amount of tranny fluid as the amount of Lucas you are putting in. You can use clear plastic tubing that will fit into the fill tube and siphon it out. It could also be that your detent cable needs to be adjusted. You will need to get instructions on how to to this. It is fairly easy to adjust. It will be a cable connected to the throttle body.

Only runs in 1st and 2nd gear and reverse.


This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line
, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

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.

96 lt-1, 4L60. 3rd and 4th gears went out. tried solenoids, no help. figured clutch pkg, replaced tranny. worked for about 10 miles, no 3rd or 4th again. replaced pcm, no help. what is it?


Could be the Igniton switch, but that would make it where it would only have 3rd gear. Do you think maybe it's not using 1 &2 and you are feeling 3rd thinking it is a lower gear.
If the swich isn't giving power to the transmission then that may be your problem
