There could be a number of problems. One could be your c.v. axles. Another could be the transmission itself. Before the car stopped moving did you notice a popping sound when you turned the wheel? Or while shifting where there any points when it felt like the car would idle like it's in neutral?

Testimonial: "No, It was not the CV joints. My step son said it would screech, get hard to keep going up hills, then it just quit. Sounds like the tranny died?"

Car won't go into gear ,5 speed Manuel in 1988 firebird trans am after running 5 min. Into driving

Check your transmission fluid. If it is low then fill it but I would suspect that the tranny itself is in need of some work.

Have you checked for auto transmission fluid level? It needs to be Mopar ATF +4 ONLY, no other brand will work correctly. Check for major leaks. Check tranny for tranny codes NOT cel codes.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 46 RH auto transmission. after the motor / trannie gets warm it starts to slip out of gear 2, 3 , 4, if i let off the accelerator and downshift it will eventually go back into...

Other than removing & cleaning the valve body

ANY SLIPPING EVER in the life of that trans,
will eventually lead to a rebuild

That one went 18 years in my dakota & still
good when I parted with it a year ago

Most rear drive transmissions, last ten years & transaxles
are on their death beds from day one.

Unless you actually back probed the sensors with an oscilloscope
& scan tool data was next to non on OBD 1,it is possible
the sensors were never bad

yes because the cluch and pressure plate need to come off around the gear that fits into the transmission.

The transmission feels like its not wantin to grap any gears but the tranny fluid is fine

the tranny fluid really has nothing to do with if it dont smell burnt that dont mean anything either you can try a simple test your self its called power braking step hard on the brake and while in forward gear give it a lil gas and increase slowly if you feel the tranny slipping its a good idea to take it to a shop but do your homework trannys are alot of money to fix take it from a mechanic like me.

Speedometer wont work

Most cars have one main vehicle speed sensor (vss). The VSS in front wheel drive cars is mounted in the transmission. A gear in the tranny turns a small gear on the VSS. If a tooth of the gear on the VSS is damaged, you can get that erratic speedometer jumping like you're experiencing. A malfunctioning VSS can cause problems with shifting and with the activation of the anti-lock braking system and cruise control. Have a Transmission shop inspect your VSS and replace if necessary, if your handy with tools. you can buy the VSS and replace you self. The speed sensors on the Galant are called pulse generators and need to be replace as a set. Located outside of the transmission right on top.
Good luck!

Speedometer doesn't work and transmission wont shift

Hi, make sure you check the speed cable that runs to the engine, it may be severed. As for the tranny, you have some major gear problems that will require pulling this transmission for a deeper look. i would have a look at the transmission filter as well.

Are we referring to a manuel tranny or automotic? If its a manuel tranny, you have a bad syncro in the transmission. This would require a complete tranny tear down.
