Nothing to do with the filter

May try cleaning the valve body & diagnose
any solenoid issues

After that will most likely have to rebuild it

Sounds like the shift kit is warn out in the transmission. The overdrive line may not be able to provide enough hydrolic pressure to engage the gears to move the truck. When you switch to regualr drive, that line is able to build the hydrolic pressure to engage the gears. At a certian speed (for the transmission, certian hydrolic pressure) there is enough pressure to engage the gears in overdrive, but go below that, and you have to start in drive again. If this is the case, there is no easy fix for that and I recomend taking it to a transmission shop to have your shift kit examined. Opening up an automatic transmission requires specalized tools, clean shop enviroment, and knowlage more then the average back yard machanic has.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

SOURCE: I have a 1966 Ford Falcon with a C4 transmission.

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.

Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

C/E light on for 1 code P0741, changed TCC solenoid, trans fluid, filter why would the transmission stop going into gear after previously shifting beautifully with no slipping or any issues at all.


Just because you installed a new part, do not assume it can't be bad. This happens alot with aftermarket parts. When you change just a minor part and a problem develops, good idea to double check both your work and the new parts.

I have a 1999 Tiburon. Trans starts off in 2nd gear and goes to 3rd but will not go into overdrive.When starting cold though, it will shift 1,2&3. Also overdrive(4th gear) light will not come on.


I would check into the Trans oil temp sensor,they are known to keep the trans from shifting into 4th gear if they have a open or a shorted circuit...This may also be the culprit for the other issues you are experiencing when the trans is at diff temps and doing diff things....The other thing that is known for going bad in that Transaxle is the Sunshell...The splines on the inside of the sunshell strip out and than you will lose pretty much all forward gears,Except for 1st gear most likely and you will also lose Reverse if the Sunshell goes bad...But this will not act any different if the temperature is cold or hot

I replaced the snap ring and retainer because they were both broke and still no luck with overdrive working


Overdrive would not engage at 35+ mph. Took trans pan off, removed filter, dropped valve body out. Found broken snap ring on overdrive servo. Removed and replaced snap ring. Opened valve body and found 1 of the broken pieces stuck in a valve. Replaced all valve body gaskets. Put valve body back in with 95 in/lbs torque. Put in new filter. Pan on with 120 in/lbs or 10 ft/lbs. Refill with trans fluid. Run through gears. Lower vehicle. Test drive.

I also have a 2000 cherokee that has two very puzzleing problems it has a knocking noise in the engine that comes and goes oil pressure remains the same does not drop stays above normal one mornning you...


I think I can help you with trans issue, the knock is going to have to be "seen it action" to correctly diagnose.
RE: trans, I'd start with a good trans fluid & filter change. If you have someone do it for you, find someone that has capacity to power flush the system at same time.
Trans fluid contracts in cold weather and needs to warm/expand to build up correct pressures. New/clean fluid does it quickly and most people never notice it in cold weather. As it(fluid) ages, and as trans wears, that time to build pressure becomes more evident and cause delayed shifts.Also internals of trans develop build up, gummed up, sticky and in some cases condensation forms and mixes and dilutes trans fluid. A good rule of thumb, change trans fluid & filter every 50k and sooner if you do any towing. Hope that helps...

Start driving will not shift till i reach a higher rpm then i have to back off the throttle till it drops into gear the i have to ease the throttle up for the next gear change.


Sounds like trans filter is starting clog up. Sometimes cold, fluid needs to warm up and expand. Depending on last time you did it, trans fluid & filter change is in order.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo hesitates in 2nd gear when cold


Is it manual or auto trans? If manual the gear lube is thicker when cold and the syncronizers tend to stick and not slide free for grind free shifting or for locking into gear.
If Auto trans if the jeep is warmed up setting then cycle the gears before driving. If that helps then the fluid is not getting through the valve body properly. It could be metal in the body or filter or cold seals are letting fluid by til the seals warm, expand and hold pressure. I'm assuming trans fluid is good, not old. One item that can lead to poor cold shift in an auto trans is a bad torque convertor. Since it seems to be a second gear issue the second section of the trans could have a bad seal. In an auto trans I'd take to a shop and have a cold pressure test done. They will tell which one is the problem.

2003 chevy silverado will not shift into drive or overdrive.


transmission shift solenoid is stuck open this is a common vehicle issue in automatics and not particular to any make or model vehicle 15 dollar part and arm and leg for labor if taken in

heres an idea to try
take out the transmission filter and replace with new one make sure to take not of any metal debry in trans pan this indicates the trans had sheered its gears down and a trans rebuild is needed
the transfilter needs to be changed at a certain milage interval they can get clogged up
there is a kit you buy for your truck at any parts store
its an easy change hour of time unbolt trans pan unbolt trans filter and put new one in
kit comes with new seals less than an hour you can do it yourself

to overdrive you would feel a difference in shift badley if it was that something to keep in mind

Most likely a fluid change and the new Dexron 6 trans fluid will cure this issue, make sure to do a full service, fluid and filter. Note, Dexron VI replaces all previous Dexron fluids and I know from personnel experience it works great, longer trans life and smoother shifts and less problems like yours.
