The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

SOURCE: 1999 saturn sl2 transmission wont shift from 1st gear

Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.

You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

Hello
You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

I have a 94 chevy 2500 that is stuck in 3rd gear, or wont shift correctly, shop says its an "ignition switch"


My truck had this issue, or one very similar. The 4L80E transmissions have a defect where transmission fluid can leak up into the big round electrical plug and short everything out. There are YouTube videos on how to clean out the plug and seal it so it doesn't happen again.

Have you any ideas what i should check next?


Even though your shifter doesn't show 1st gear, your transmission will start out in 1st, then shift into 2nd at around 10-15mph. If you start out with shifter in 2nd, you should feel the gear change.
About all the average person can do with automatics is check the fluid, and possibly drop the pan and change filters. sometimes that helps with slipping or balky transmissions, but not always.
Good luck, Bill. Maybe somone else has some ideas?

Bad syncro for third gear. Sorry, but you aren't fixing this one yourself, unless you replace the transmission yourself.
