Tranmishan slipping out in third gear on 1990 Nissan stanza

Hey,, well this is an internal problem with the transmission itself, To be quite honest it can be numerous problems in the internal workings, What I'll do is describe the most likely 3 of them for you, however I must caution you that this should be done by a professional as its quite difficult to disassemble and re assemble a transmission.

1.) The transmission has a belt in it, if the belt is worn out this will cause that problem, as soon of the torque increases it causes the belt to slip and throws the gear out with it.

2.) The transmission has clutches in it, If these clutches are worn out in your case the ones between the second and third gear it will slip out as well.

3.) the third gear itself is worn out.

in any of the 3 above cases there are 2 possible fixes, The easiest is to replace the transmission. The cheapest is to rebuild the transmission. To rebuild the transmission you will need a transmission full kit, This contains all the inner parts (well most of them some of the cylinders you wont get in it). Basically whats done is that the transmission is taken apart and every piece replaced. If your going to do this yourself, only attempt such if you have some mechanical background, Label stuff, take notes and pictures so you can reassemble it. Be sure to mark the points on the gears and chain (belt) , so when you reassemble if falls into that exact position.

however I strongly suggest you have this professionally done as rebuilding a transmission take a lot of skill and tools. Even taking the transmission out of the vehicle is a trying task.

General Disclaimer
Please note based on the information given i have made my suggestions, This can be wrong as I'm not there in person to verify it therefor i can make no guarantee that is the problem. I strongly suggest you have this problem professionally looked at.

2006 pt cruiser. check engine light comes on, automatic transmission will not shift out of 2nd gear. does not do it all the time though. Computer Problem?

The check engine light means there is a trouble code has occured.Even if the problem clears itself,the code is still stored as a history code.if you want to know what that code is,you can buy a cheap code scanner for about 50 bucks.I bought one out of the Harbor Freight catalog made buy Cen-Tech.It comes with a code book that only gives you engine trouble codes,but the scanner will also read transmission codes(I have to do a Google search on these to know what they are).Hey,it was cheap! This thing has paid for itself 10 times already!

Help me please with a transmission problem.

The linkage/brackets may be bent. If the button is stuck in the knob, the shift lever itself may be bent, with some luck the plastic is just interfering with button movement back out.

The ZF transmissions are rather stupid proof.

Speedometer went up to 140 miles an hour and stays...

your problem sounds like your speedometor cable is bad...each end is like little gear and are usually made of end bolts on the transmission and the other in back of speedometor...if it's not the cable then it is going to be the gauge itself.

youve probabally broken a shift fork and you will need to take the transmission in to be refurbished. If your shifter moves freely it could be that your shifter itself has broken which is a much cheaper fix. If you can dissassembel the shifter assembly and check for any serious brakes thats the simple fix. Otherwise take it in and get it looked over as a transmission overhaul is not something that you can do yourself without serious training, patience and organization...

Re: 1998 lincoln continental transmission. i just stopped for gas and when i restarted on my way, the transmssion will not shift above 2nd gear either automatically from the drive position or as i manually...

The last time I experienced this the gearbox governor gear (which are usually made of plastic had lost its drive teeth. Did you notice if the speedo still worked.

Transmission model is 4L60E,and the symptoms you are describing is a common failure on these transmissions all the way back to it's predecesor,the 700 R 4 model.The reverse input shell,splines into the low/reverse planetary sun gear.The reverse input shell has a collar with splines made into it,and these splines are prone to stripping,and sometimes the collar itself will break free from the shell.Without the shell functioning,no reverse,and this is likely what you are hearing.Aftermarket companies sell heavy duty,and standard duty,replacements.Eventually,you will lose the forward gears also.Good luck.

First,a teardown is in order to determine exactly what is damaged.Inspection is another term.If the 1st gear on the countershaft is damaged,the entire counter shaft would have to be replaced.There are two shafts inside the trans,that mainshaft which has mounted onto it,the input shaft,and all the speed gears,synchros and forks that integrate with the main shaft.The countershaft also has speed gears,but they are actually made into the counter,and not replaceable individually.If any one of the speed gears on the countershaft is damaged,the entire countershaft has to be replaced.As far as manuals,i don't know of any for manual transmissions.Try contacting some places on the internet that specialize in manual transmissions,as they might know some sources for manuals.There are many,many things not covered in manuals that can only be learned with time,experience,and apprenticeship.Like unit endplays,how to determine good and bad parts.etc.
