Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

My Bravada just quit moving after a loud pop while in movement. It will start and it will allow you to shift the gear into drive but no movement. About a week before this happened it was struggling to move in reverse. Any ideas other than "just transmission"?

Bands broke inside tranny... you will need either a rebuild or replacement.

SOURCE: when i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

SOURCE: No reverse movement after valve body was removed and cleaned

Stupid question here, but did you put the valve body in backwards or upside down? Ensure all the connectors, lines are good....outside of that how about the gear selector? I have done alot of tranny work myself, but some of these things are common mishaps that I have done myself. Good luck to you and let us know what you come up with. Thanks for using Fixya!

Sincerely,

JC

SOURCE: 2002 Alero shifting hard

I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero and my car was running rough and stalling. Also when the car was shifting, it was making a "thud" sound. My service engine light was on, so I took it to Autozone to run their diagnostic tool. It came back with code P0108 and they advised me to check my vacuum hoses as a possible solution. I looked and found that my air hose running from my throttle body to my map sensor was disconnected. I reconnected the hose and the engine ran normally and didn't make any "thud" sound when shifting. My car is back to normal. So check your hoses. If its still running rough, you may need to replace your map sensor.

Transmission making loud grinding/sucking sound, doesn't go when in drive or reverse


Is it an automatic John? When was the last time you checked the level of your ATF (automatic transmission fluid)?

There are many different types, so make sure you get the right one.

If it is a manual shift, check the gearbox oil level. If that is OK, you need a transmission specialist. Look in Yellow Pages.

2004 Saturn Ion manual shift. Clutch catches when being pressed and then after a loud "pop" goes the rest of the way down.


If the clutch operation is good ( doesn't slip or shudder or allows the 1st gear selection ok ) then I would replace the clutch master cylinder as it may be catching in the cylinder bore or be binding up and leaving too much play and the shaft is not properly fitted into the piston . Generally unless you have replaced the slave cylinder recently I would replace that also and then the clutch system is fully serviceable for a long time to come.

When driving my 2000 Olds Bravada, it has a loud roar noise that sounds like when a semi truck is taking off before the gears are shifted. Transmission shifts easily into gears, just this loud roar noise...


If there's a loud roaring noise all the time, then your muffler probably has a hole in it, time to get a new full or partial exhaust pipe.

If the noise goes when it changes gear, then you've probably got a gear box or thrust bearing problem.

Rattling / grinding sound coming from engine area when vehicle is in gear and car break is applied, but when gear is set into neutral noise stops. Was told the problem was the aircondition compressor....


Just a couple ideas...
Your engine and transmission will shift slightly when in drive, and maybe that movement is allowing it to rub on something. Another issue may be that the noise is actually from the transmission.
Torn motor mounts will allow the drive train to shift or move farther than normal.

Transmission made a loud pop then quit moving in drive. Truck still moves in reverse


An automatic transmission consists of a series of bands (gears) which is each gear within the transmission. You state that truck will move in reverse, but not in drive. The loud pop you heard was the forward gear band breaking. From this point you have two options...either have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

99 vitara jumps out of 4x4 h gear with loud clunk after few hundred yards


Yes, that should be corrected before you pop a gear tooth. Make sure your linkage is allowing the shift to fully engage.

Pops out of gear it's a 5 speed 1.8L went driving shift smooths but then pops out. is it the clutch? or is the tranny blowin ?


Sometimes spray lube on linkages & bushings down at the transmission & at areas where you see movement during shifting, will cure that, otherwise you may need some new bushings at certain areas. Have someone move shifter while you observe different pivot points for too much slop. (movement)
