SOURCE: Transmission will not engage

Sounds like your torque converter may not be unlocking which is like letting your foot out on the clutch on a manual trans and not releasing the brake. Can you move it to neutral ok? To test the theory, move it to neutral, start the vehicle, then without putting your foot on the brake shift to drive with a liitle gas. If you can get going this way, it is the torque converter.

Oil leak from my SSangyong Rexton 2.7XDI continues to be a problem

drain /remove the oil until the correct level is obtained on the dip stick for starters . Next the "O" ring seal on the side of the box at the harness should be fitted with the use of a sealant ( locktite blue or red) in to a dry hole and allowed to skin . Incorrect fluid levels will cause the oil to aerate and flow out of any breather holes and will pressurize the transmission placing a strain on any seal .

Cannot get gears untill engine is warm

assuming fluid is full to cold level is the color light red/pink ? If dark grungy and is same when hot - will need changing . GM trans oil loses its thickness - lubrication qualities due to heat / age etc. Ergo unwilling to engage gear / hold gear . Most cars have shift interlock meaning foot must depress brake too move gear shift = Nuetral safety switch receives pressure from brake pedal if it fails to recognize or is worn then trans will not want engage gear .

Have a 94 aerostar the trans engages all gears (** the motor dies down when it goes in gear**) but no matter how much gas I give it it does not move any ssuggestions? ???

Is pump working? ATF level? Check ATF level and if low top up. Next check the oil pressure. If getting no pressure check filter for clogging and if fine replace pump/tranny.

I have a99 chevy sunurban with a 4L60-E transmission i lost all gears, had the trans febuilt, i installed the rebuilt trans with a new torq converter and i still have no gears, what could possibly be wrong

Make sure you engage the convertor all the way into the trans-three stages while pushing in and turning, or else the ears on the conv won't engage the oil pump. Also check your flexplate for cracks around the bolt holes while you have the trans out,it won't disable your trans unless the flexplate cracks completely. Of course, check fluid level and make sure you don't have a trans cooler leak in the radiator. Good luck.

'02 alero 5 spd wont engage gear

My first question is - have you had the trans filled with fluid ?
If the fluid level is now normal, and you can't shift the gears, you may have damaged the main shaft inside the trans.

Transmission will not engae any gear

re/check your oil level as it possibly lower then you thought ,as an auto gearbox needs the level to be full, dont rev the gearbox trying to get it to move this will damage the bands inside the gear box,

I have a 1978 el camino with a 305 engine and a 350 transmission and when i put it in gear the vehicle will not move in either drive or reverse

Is the oil level full? If the trans oil is low enough it will prevent the car from moving or engaging gears. If you have to fill it up then pull your gear selector through each gear including 2 and 1, waiting at each spot for a few seconds. Do this twice and check the oil level again. Top up if necessary.

Can you wiggle the shifter at D and get the trans to engage. If so the shifter linkage is too loose and will need to be tightened up, possibly by adjusting but also may need to incliude replacing bushings and spacers.

Have you done any work to the trans lately? It's possible something wasn't hooked up properly so crawl under there and double check everything again. Years ago, I owned a service station and I had a guy bring in a car with your symptoms. He had changed the trans and thought he had a bad one. He paid me for 2 hours labor because he forgot to put the torque convertor bolts back in so double check carefully.

If none of this works you likely have a bad pump inside it and the trans will need to be replaced or rebuilt. If this is the case you might want to look at a 700R4. It will give you an extra gear with a little work They work off a vacuum/electric switch mounted on the firewall. Pick it up in a scrap yard.

It's not likely that a fluid and filter change will do any good now. It would give you an idea of what might be wrong inside but that's about all. Hope this helps.

My car moves forward but when i shifted to backward, car doesn't move. I checked oil level, it's very less. Is replenishing the oil will solve the problem? Are there any reasons other than oil level?

Warm the car engine.Change through all the gears and finish in N.Check the transmission oil level.If it needs trans oil,add the oil into the tube that the trans fluid dipstick is located.The gears wont work if the trans oil level is low.Probably a good idea to find the oil leak.I hope this helps

'99 silverado 4x4,new trans,no gears.

I don't see you did anything wrong per your description.
With the engine off, check the level of the transmission oil, replace the dipstick, start the truck and recheck the fluid level, level should drop. This will indicate the front pump is working.

Next, with truck running, put transmission into any gear, then return to park position. Do you hear any ratcheting noise.

Let me know.
