Check and make sure that there is enough fluid in the transmission by checking it when it is warmed up, on level ground with the engine running and the gear selector in park or neutral. If the fluid level is too low then add fluid until the level is within the "SAFE" range on the dipstick. If there isn't enough fluid that could cause the symptoms you described. Also, and more importantly, make sure that there isn't too much fluid in the transmission because the fluid can get bubbles in it by the rotating parts in the transmission which will cause hydraulic circuits weaken and basically will quickly wear out the friction materials in the transmission and it will need to be rebuilt. So if there is too much fluid, then I recommend draining the fluid and changing the filter then making sure it has the correct amount.

Hello;
Are you getting the check engine light? If so the electronics may have gone out. You may not need a rebuild but you won't know till you pull the oil pan on the transmission and inspect the contents. You may also have lost the neutral safety switch. It is mounted on the drivers side of the transmission. Check those out first and let me know what codes you get.
For Ponchoboy; the clunking and hissing you hear are teminal root causes. Drop the oil pan and if it has a lot of filings and metal it is time for a rebuild.
Hope this helps; Rate me highly;

SOURCE: 2002 kia optima slipping into 3rd and 2nd gear while driving

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

I have a 98 chevy silverado. My transmission only has 2nd,3rd and reverse if you manually put it into 1st it still has 2nd gear in 1st&2nd gear and 3rd gear works in 3rd and drive only. Nothing higher


Remove trans pan and inspect shift solenoids. These are prone to come apart and visual inspection often finds the problem. Replacement units include a bracket to keep this from happening again.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.

MY TRUCK WILL GO INTO REVERSE BUT NOT INTO DRIVE?


fisrt gear clutch is burned out , if you push the truck with a car up to 30 mph and drop it into drive you will get 2nd and 3rd , but when you stop you have nothing. if first gear clutch burns up you don't get any forward gears.
