The problem you describe didn't mention whether you have an automatic shifting transmission or a standard transmission in the vehicle. If it is a standard transmission their could be a broken gear spline which would prevent it from moving properly internally. Have you had a transmission shop look at it yet? Now if it is a automatic transmission it could be a band problem with the band in the 3 rd gear range either locked up or slipping. Again, it is difficult to diagnose either w/o knowing really what is goin on inside the transmission. You have to have it removed and opened in order to examine exactly the mechanical parts. Is the transmission fluid full, the only way to check this is with the engine running and the car in park, or neutral. Talk with an AAMCO shop if you have one in your neighborhood.
Well could be a couple of different things wrong. If it is an automatic transmission could be the pressure solenoids in the transmission. or some thing is broken in the gears. If it is a standard it could be the synchro gears inbetween that let you shift into the next gear. Needless to say unless you are a transmission mechanic, take it to the transmission professionals and they will tell u if it can be fixed or depending on the hours for labor, or if u really need your car, you can have a rebuilt transmission installed in about 2 days. Rebuilding yours could take up to a week depending on the experience of the mechanic. I have worked on standard transmissions but I wouldnt even try an automatic. I had a rebuilt automatic put into my chev pickup in under a weekend for 1300 bucks, but I had a shift kit installed as well while I waited lol. hope it helps D
I believe these models have a transmission temperature sensor. If the transmission gets to hot it puts the car into limp mode until it cools down. A faulty sensor may be your problem. Also you may consider installing a transmission fluid cooler. Most cars have the transmission lines routed through the radiator to cool the fluid but radiators get hot. You want to keep the fluid as cool as possible. Ask your local parts supplier about a transmission cooler.There like 30 bucks but can save you a rebuild later :)
The best thing to do is take it back to the dealer, or a reputable transmission shop. Transmissions are highly technical and the average backyard mechanic can not work on them. It could be a servo or clutchpack inside the transmission, or an electrical problem, since the transmission is computer controlled.
The mechanic should check on the gears form N, R, P, 1st gear, second, third gear of the transmission . you also have to check the oil seals of the gears of the transmission.Don't forget to check also the shift level and the shift fork of the transmission.check the said gears ,the shift fork ,the shift level and the oil seals if they are worn out or destroyed you should replace them.Most of the time if the engine spudders when changing in gears it means that there is a problem in the oil seals of the transmission gears . Don't forget to check also the transmission bearing to be sure. Because it is spuddering .
Auto Trans I had to replace solenoid in transmission there are two of them when you drop the pan. After testing with a 12 volt battery one was bad replaced and transmission works fine. Mine was a 1996, cost about $90 for solenoid.
