1999 mitsubishi eclipse automatic transmission wont shift into 4th gear.
First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..
If not.. Check ALL your fuses..
If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..
If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..
1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)
2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..
Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..
Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..
