Possible Transmission problem. When gas applied, engine revs but no acceleration. Will accelerate when placed on 2 and L gear. Reverse is fine. Fluid level is full and no visible leaks. Do I need


You might try to get a free scan from Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance autoparts. If their scanners will not show a Code, the more complicated Dealer Scanners may.

Some of the transmissions use shift solenoids. The solenoid for 3rd and 4th gear may be bad. Some use speed sensors which tell the transmission to advance to the higher gears. If you can manually reach 1st and 2nd and reverse, the Torque converter is working and fluid is moving inside the transmission.

I think you can call around to see what other places would charge to put a rebuilt transmission in, if yours can not be fixed.

1994 gmc sierra pickup 4.3L V6 automatic transmission experiencing difficulties with ODrive = 4th gear, and Drive = 3rd gear, engine revs up to the max properties with little to no forward motion. Rev


You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

I just purchased a 1999 VW Passat and when I start to drive the car acts like a manual and it is an automatic. Now it has on the gears D,4,3 & 2 what is that about?


you have effectively got two gearboxes in the car.1is a normal auto (D) ON THE FLOOR then you have + and - for the "manual" take your pick....now here is the clever part,if you put the car in auto "D"and dont touch the gas the car will accelerate to about 35 on the flat.and will change as per a normal auto,if then when you stop you put 1/3rd gas pedal and hold that position it will go right upto about 65,stop then puit your foot right to the floor (kickdown)and the car will fly...stop...you have just reset the gearbox..try and keep to 1/3rd gas for about 25miles and you will see a big difference in gear changes/revs (smoother)but boring....

My son's car is a Honda Accord 91 and he said that when he drives it as of late the car changes gears to high or low. Sometimes it drives well then the gears shift to slow. What problem can this be??


this is one of the first "fuzzy logic" boxes fitted by honda,
the gearchange pattern will change dependant on the driving style of the driver.
first check the trans level.then without touching the gas put car in gear and let it run to max speed(about 30/35mph).stop.
then put 1/3rd gas pedal down (keep it still)and let car go to max speed,stop.then floor the gas to a safe top speed for the test road...then stop.you have just reset the change mode.
if you drive the car with only 1/3rd gas the car will change lowdown the rev range(boring) and save you a fortune in gas...
if son drives different to you the car will know who is driving and change accordingly(takes about 30 miles to react)
it is NOT in any handbook.

WHEN DRIVING AND THE TRANS NEEDS TO SHIFT ON MY 2005 VW JETTA 2.5-5 NEW STYLE THE RPM'S REV UP BRIEFLY THEN THE TRANS WILL SHIFT THE SHIFTING IS SMOOTH BUT THE HIGH RPMS WORRY ME.


when vw started to use the computer controlled gearbox system a criticism was the shift was very harsh,to counter this they made it rev slightly before changing.so that you know the system, try this out....without touching the gas.....put it in d and let the car accelerate to its max speed,stop,then use 1/3rd of gas (keep your foot still)and let it do the same...stop,then,if safe,put your foot to the floor,hard, notice when the car changes gear(revs/speed)then if you drive,only using the first1/3rd of the gas,the cars change pattern will alter to suit.......wierd it is.....

Noise when making a slow speed tight turn. 1999 mercury cougar already replaced right front wheel bearing


noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.

My 99 mercury cougar v6 is stuttter when i drive it will shut off while driving and the car acts like there is no gas in it pass a 1/4 of a tank what is this?


I had the same problem, but the problem didn't start until winter when it got below 0 degrees celcius. it would almost bronco jump and stall at stop lights, (almost rear ended a few people...not safe at all) and then when i'd start it up, i'd rev it and it would stall...but still starting again everytime.. it turned out that.this car is really good and developing condensation in the fuel line/tank...I went and bought a 2 dollar bottle of gas-line antifreeze (any gas station) put it in with the gas and filled 'er up with a tank of premium (cause it burns hotter) and the problem was solved almost instantly. (after about 20 minutes of driving) it saved me from having to get my entire pump replaced...try that out..if it is only since winter started(i dunno where u are) it could very well be your problem.
