Can you take it out of gear when it's not running? If not then something is bent or in the way of it's travel or the shifter cable came off it's link or is frayed, probably near the shift stick. If it's a hydraulic system with a Master and Slave try bleeding the system at the transmission end there should be a fitting on the Slave cylinder which attaches near the shift fork. If its a ford car, check that that the transmission pan isn't damaged which would cause this problem.
If this is a chev car then check the ERLS fuse. See my other posts for more info on that.

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

2000 ford explorer 5r55E stuck in second gear and all gear positions


It sounds like the linkages have let go. If this is the case, then drive it to a repairer straight away. If you turn the vehicle off you might not get it started again.

My 2004 cavalier 1st gear is stuck i have to take second gear down next up it's go


Hi there:
Check fluid levels and maintenance time. Sound like a torque converter or valve body internal solenoids problem.

Also scanned the transmission module, to search codes in order to know exactly if you have some fault code stored there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!

If second gear stuck it need rebuilt ore replaced.
check what labor to rip one out replace a junk yard one ore check see what cost rebuilt it.

Your cost about 900 to 1000/.
if you do your self 600 for junk yard one and few hundread if you can get rebuild kit rebuild the trasmission your self.
I took trans rebuilt i rather buy used ore pay some rebuild it.
Give thumbs up if that help seya

Transmission gets stuck in gear


Try adjusting your clutch as it is clearly not disengaging properly in second, you might also try adjusting your shift linkage.
