Lubricate it near the firewall where the shifting device it sometimes they get dry and they are factory lubed but age makes it hard and might need something put on it to smooth the operation

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy 1500 P/U 4x4 small V8. Transmission shifting issue.

you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps

1987 Dodge Dakota 6cyl. won't shift into reverse, drives forward in neutral but won't shift out of 1st that way. Drives and shifts fine in "D".


Is this an automatic? I can't tell if column shift or console? With column shift, Did you try taking shift linkage loose from tranny and shifting by hand? There are safety issues with trying that, make sure functional parking brake is set and the wheels are blocked. Also, have a helper sitting there with foot on the brake. Safety is your responsibility.

Maybe just a tranny issue, I'm not a tranny person.


You might be able to start it and kill it in drive? There are safety issues trying this and I don't want the responsibility. Safety is you responsibility.

2003 chevy suburban 4wd 1500 lt shifts slow to 2nd gear and vibrates between 65 and 70 mph


Sounds to me that you need your trans fluid changed and filter. When you do change it use a quart of Lucas transmission conditioner to it. Also check and see if you may have a bad univercel, It will also make it vibrate at faster speeds or your drive shaft may need to be rebalanced.

My 99 chevy silverado will not shift into any gear


if u cant select a gear such as go in reverse or into drive when moving selector from park than place into park and look under vehicle attached to the transmission on the drivers side is the selector cable on a lot of 99s this gets rusty and pops off or breaks if popped off spray with a lube to free up the clip and pop back on may have to replace it if to damaged --if cable is fine than problem will be an internal and usually pops a check engine code --check fluid level and smell if smells burnt and looks brownish than fluid bad[filter possible clogged or band-clutch pack bad] needs to be changed as well as filter may get lucky that wont cause internal damage but usually the cable is ur problem good luck

No not your U-joints. They usually make noise when you shift in to gear or put on the gas in gear or let off the gas in gear when dirving. They would make a clunking noise.
Have you checked the Transmission fluid level? A low fluid level may cause hesitations. The fluid should be a nice bright redish color. If it is brownish and yucky looking it is time to change the filter and fluid.
Remember that the level marks on the dip stick are measured in pints and not quarts like the oil is. You need to put the emergency brake on and stick it in neutral and start the engine to check auotmotic transmissions. If it is low then fill it to the full mark. If any fluid at all shows on the stick then unless it is burnt and brown it is probably not your problem. If none showed on the stick you might get lucky. Keep me informed and I could use a thumbs up for me time please. The Raz Shack!!!

Automatic gearbox


How to prevent the transmission from damage
(The filter usually is screen type and can be cleaned when remove bottom cover. but this is not to be done at regular maintenance inspection.)
- Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn't matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious.
- Once in a while check the transmission fluid level and condition. Not all cars however have the automatic transmission dipstick, in some cars, for example, in late Volkswagen models, the transmission fluid can only be checked by the dealer. Consult with your owner's manual for details. If the transmission fluid level is too low, there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.
- Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner's manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
Also, keep in mind that an automatic transmission can not be drained completely - there is always some transmission fluid left inside the transmission (the torque converter, in the valve body, etc.) which means you only can change about %60 of the fluid at once. This is one more reason to change it more often.

- Use only the same type of the transmission fluid as specified in the owner's manual or on the dipstick. Some vehicles (e.g Dodge Caravan) are very sensitive to fluid type
- Never shift to the Reverse or Parking until the car comes to a complete stop.
- Never shift from the Parking mode when engine rpm is higher than normal idle.
- Always hold a brakes down when shifting from Parking.
- The automatic transmission can be damaged if towing with the drive wheels on the road. Always use a dolly or place powered wheels on the towing platform (if the vehicle is front wheel drive - tow it from the front leaving rear wheels on the road.
