Check fluid level add if needed with proper factory rated tranny fluid, if this does not work it could be multiple sensors not working properly or tranny needs replacement.

SOURCE: 2004 kia spectra with automatic transmission was

I have the same problem, I'm cureenlty going to try Step one and, Replace the Transmission Fluid,

I'm doing this becuase, the Kia Spectra need a special transmission Fluid that the last owner or person might not have put in.

Number two reason is because from my knowledge old transimission fluid will do this also.

Do it yourself to save money search it up on google, thats how i learned.

If the transmission is full and not low on fluid I suspect you may need to have the fluid changed in it, this should be done every 60,000 miles minimum. If that fails to improve the problem then you are looking at a ****** rebuild.

1995 Nissan pickup with automatic transmission, when I start it it makes a loud gear rubbing noise coming from the flywheel area. Any ideas? Had the starter checked it's still good.

when you had the starter out, did you inspect the flywheel itself? the starter can be engaging but the flywheel can have some wear so that a grinding noise will be heard

Have all gears that work find but will not go in reverse it a 5 speed

Is this a new truck to you? Some manual's have a manual reverse lock-out, meaning you have to engage the lock-out to shift into reverse. This is usually done by pulling up on a small lever just under the shift knob.

Otherwise, the lock-out is inside the transmission and if that breaks, the transmission has to be removed to fix it.

The other possibility is that you don't have a synchronized reverse gear. It will not automatically sync with the engine speed. Try lightly putting it in reverse while letting the clutch up to the engage point, you know, right where the clutch first starts to grab.

Nissan sentra 1999, car starting but gear are not working so not moving fwd or rev.

This sounds like a transmission problem. I am haveing a simular problem. Shifts to drive, but is slow to catch and if you apply gas before engage it lurches forward. I am having the transmission replaced with a used one with less miles.

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.

i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.
