SOURCE: seems transmission gear shift problem

Pull the distick and smell the oil. If it's discoloured (black or dark brown) you know the transmission friction plates are burnt and needs a rebuilt.

SOURCE: how to fix pajero fieldmaster transmission?

I actually have the same problem just a few mos ago with my Pajero Fieldmaster 4M40 A/T. Is your speedometer working? My speedometer sensor is intermittently working if it does not work at all, the tranny will not shift to 4th gear no matter how hard you push the gas pedal to the limit!! I replaced the speed sensor and it goes back to normal now.

The Transmission computer is the Achillies heel of many Mitsubishi vehicles , it sounds like your Pajero is in " limp home " mode which gives you third gear only.
See if you can borrow a replacement computer to try.
Mitsubishi scrimped on the quality of the capacitors in their computers and their failure rate is very high.
Happy hunting Marshall

I definetly highly reccomend you to use Mitsubishi genuine Diamond SPIII Fluid, you'll feel your transmission more powerfull, and will help you to keep it just like new. I've tried with "Import multivehicle" from Castrol but a within 6 months the gears began to slip.

Won't start when cold


Most likely your Temperature sensor for the "Cold start routine" is not sending the signal to the Master computer. There are usually 2 sensors and one operates the dash indicators while the other tells the controls that the engine is cold.

This enrichens the fuelmix and adjusts timing to provide a rich run condition for the engine. It will operate for only a few minutes, then reset to warm engine conditions. You will need to locate the correct sensor and try changing it. Sometimes less Antifreeze will be lost if you work on a cold engine when removing this part.

Another remote possibility is the TPS switch on the throttle. This switch may have a bad spot on the "at rest" position and fail to provide a signal for the engine. It would be a bit rare to not set a code, usually this part is something that either works or does not, but check the mounts. They rarely slip, but if one did slip it can be your low end problem.

Please rate my info.

97 cavalier starts and runs ok from a cold start after a few minutes of warm up it starts to run rough and miss. If i try to drive it it will start out ok but won't shift automaticly but shifts fine m


Sounds like possibly more than on problem, crankshaft position sensor, or ignition module likely on starting prob which maybe affecting shifting due to hard code in ecm, or shift prob could be shift solenoid in valve body of transmission. Both parts readily available from local parts store

My automatic transmission in 2000 Civic EX is slipping was running fine then on the way home it started o slip going in to 2nd. It loses speed going up a hill I have parked it. Is there a adjustment to...


Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. Add Automatic Transmission Fluid as needed and do not over fill. Have the transmission line pressure tested and service the transmission. "replace the transmission oil and filter" Star with that and hope the transmission is not gone to far that you may need any other transmission. Keep me posted and shop around to find a good transmission shop.

Adding automatic transmission fluid to Porsche 928 S4


Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there

NO REVERSE FORWARD GEARS WORK. IS THERE A BAND AJUSTMENT FOR REVERSE ?IF I PUSH IT OFF IT WORKS BUT SLIPS


I have a 2000 Honda Accord EX, it shifts normal on forward with no problem. Also when the car is cold the reverse gear works just fine, but when the car runs for about few minutes the reverse gear will not work. It will seem as if it wants to go but then if feels like its neutral.
