Could be bad head gasket. Try running compression test. If all is good, check spark plugs to see which is not firing. (You will have them out for compression test anyway. Overheating can be caused by bad head gasket or even just bad misfiring.

SOURCE: gear shift difficulty moving/gear shift stuck in 1st gear

sounds like your shift cable was freezing up and finally snapped. check the trans shifter side and see if you can move it if so then this is problem. your car runs a cable not rods. if you pop the center console out you will get a better view there is one or two screws at back of console in cupholders and it should come out

SOURCE: Transmission down shifts hard

Check the trans fluid for quantity and color. If it is not a good red color, try having it changed and get the filter cleaned. If that looks okay, you may have a bad shift solenoid. Look for leaks around the trans case. Leaks on top around the solenoid are a sign that it is going bad.

SOURCE: Transmission jerks

One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.

SOURCE: Automatic transmission won't shift into higher gears.

It is likely a bad input shaft or output shaft speed sensor. But have the tcm scanned for codes.

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.

bad shift solenoid in transmission ,and white smoke is because you need head gasket,it is broken and you are mixing fuel with coolant,that will cause bad cat converter soon,and your engine will die soon due oil and water mix ,will kill your crank shaft and cam shaft bearing,(check your oil see if it look like milk shake,that is very bad)

bad shift linkage.? ever try shift it with no shift lever. to prove that? (ask)
bad 1'st gear dogs. !
bad bearing near 1st gear, causing it to bounce and jump out.
bad synchro, blocker, hub that dogs to 1st.
shift rail dentent balls failing , springs on balls, or plug fell out.

the blocker and dogs, hold the gear,
the box is constant mesh box, so gears never shift.
on the dogs lock up . (and effects a shift)
if you need a photo of that action or video that too is easy.

1st gear has the gross effect of putting huge gear spreading actions
from top 1st gear to bottom cluster, they want to spread.
so any bearings that can allow that, there, will cause 1st to fail.
easy.

Wont go into any gears


Have you had someone watch the shift levers on the transmission to see if they are moving when you are inside the car ?
You should be able to put the transmission into a gear from under the hood.
Could be a problem with the clutch.
