Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2005 buick rendezvous, started up, no prior problems, put it in drive and nothing. Put it in reverse and it worked just fine. Tried to go back to drive and still Nothing. It revs but won't shift. Then miraculously, I left it running and checked tranny fluid which was good and full and after I got back in the car it worked and switched I to drive. I now know I have to warm it up for it to shift. I am confused as to why this is the case. Does this require a new transmission. It's front wheel drive, any ideas are appreciated.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

SOURCE: when i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

SOURCE: 2005 dodge magnum, no prior

What I did was dissasemble the shiftlinkage unit and pull the pink plastic cam and spring out that broke. this is only a temporary fix though because it means that anyone can get into your car press the brake and roll it away!!!

The transmission has gone bad and all I can say is that you need to replace it.

Good luck.

The adjustment is on the drivers side under the vehicle. Lube it or put heat to it, They rust badly. Most likely not your problem though. You'll have to replace cables.

Buick Rendezvous Shuts off when accelerating but starts right back up


Hello


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
