Car won't shift out of 1st gear and PRNDL lights are all on.

hmmm it seems as if the diagnostic system may not be reporting it but it seems like it is telling you in a way its unable to sense what gear the trans is in so the diagnostic board is confused on what to do with the trans as if something around the trans isnt working correctly maybe a shift solenoid has gone bad or another related issue around the trans is present

Pull the vacuum line of the transmission modulator valve. If there's oil in the line, the diaphragm in the modulator valve is cracked and engine vacuum is pulling trans fluid into the engine intakee

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into

1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

What is O/D on 1995 Toyota Camry? Light says O/D Off and car won't go into any forward gear. It runs and will back up, but not go forward.

o/d stands for over drive which is 4th gear in that trans.there is a button on the shifter to disable that gear for bad road conditions.depress the button to change,car should mostly be driven with o/d selected,meaning press the button until the o/d off light goes out.with all that said,if the light display wont go out it could indicate a trans failure code is present.if your car wont move in any forward gears,most likely you have in internal trans failure.check trans fluid level and condition,full and red is good.brown or darker colored fluid is bad.if fluid is low,then add to full mark and inspect for leaks.

Will go into forward gears, but not reverse

If the reverse gear has gone out, it is time for a rebiuld. The next that will happen, is you will loose probably 2nd gear and then all your gears. These are not difficult transmissions to do and should not be too expensive no matter what they tell you! You can tell them to stop staring at the badge on the trunk and concentrate on the compnent. Look at your vin and what are the first 3 numbers? Chances are it is 126. This is your body designator Great car,, great body style. You can do some research from Mercedes and other local trans shops to get your best price on parts and repairs. Let me know if you need anything.

Have a 1996 f-350 7.3 power stroke w/auto trans, shifts fine from 1st to 2nd then in and out from third back to 2nd ,took to transmission shop trans fine but no power going to trans also odometer jumos...

HI, I have a 350, brand new in one of my old skool muscle cars with a 350 trans that used to be a drag car trans.
We changed the gears in it to street gears (4:11 to 3:55 gears) and every once in a while it will not go to the high gear, so I pull over, put it in park then back to driving and it works beautiful each time!!!!
Nothing is wrong with this car at all, brand new engine and trans in a oldskool muscle car!!!
*** The point to the story is; nothing mechanical is "PERFECT", only God's creations right. ;)
So the moral is more than likely the problem is from the area of the "engine to the trans"(that junction) and I will say your trans gears may have problems, one look doesnot make it true!
Get a second mechanic to look at the trans inside...
Also, if you have too much fluid in the trans it will all be floating in trans fluid and will give you the same effect in any gear....

Check the trans gear oil!!!
Also the cables from the shifter to the trans actuate levers on the trans that sometimes stick. Check the levers.

Tran warms up, then problem getting out of 1st gear

Depending on who serviced it. Was it a reputable place? If the fluid and filter were definately changed, your tranny is going out. Just wear and tear with those kind of miles. Hope it helps

03 suzuki aerio automatic transmition won t shift into overdrive

You have two temperature lights that come on when you start the car, one red and one blue. After the car is started the red light goes out and the blue one stays on. According to the manual, (and from my personal experience with my '03 SX), the car needs to warm up to a proper operational temperature. This temperature is reached once the blue temperature light turns off, (or within seconds afterwards). If you don't allow your car to warm up you will notice hard or long shifting, rough idle, and poor engine performance. Never drive your car if the light displays a constant red temperature light.
If this solution does not work see a Transmission expert of take it to your local Suzuki Dealer.
