There may be a problem with the TCM unit or other sensor in the transmission
find an accredited transmission shop for a proper diagnosis.
It will not need a new transmission just replacement of faulty sensors.

SOURCE: p0732 gear to ratio incorrect 2001

Generally when you see a code like that it's caused by internal slipping inside the transmission so the input speed does not match the output expected speed. You may not need a new transmission but it will need a rebuild to correct!

EGS: Ratio monitoring, gearshift 4-5/.


Gear ratios are monitored from the input and out shaft speed sensors. Takes a scanner to watch the speed signals. These sensors are magnetized. If to much metal collects on them, this could mess with the signal. Could be a bad wire or plug to the sensor. Reading the code is just the first step. Next comes diagnostics. Making sure everything on the outside of the transmission is doing what is supposed to do, then going inside it.

Ihave code p0731 stuck in 1st ratio .. what mean that code?


obviously refers to auto trans , could just need the trans fluid level topping up or even changing , if this does'nt resolve the problem then a more in depth diagnosis would be required at a repair shop as could be the ECU for example but do the fluid checks and go from ther ,keep me posted

Code p0734 I just replaced eng. and trans. now have this code.


Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit Tech notes Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary. When is the code detected? P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good. P0734 NISSAN Description This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0735 relacion incorrecta gear 5 vw bora 2006 solucion


P0735 VOLKSWAGEN - Gear 5 Incorrect Ratio
P0735 se detecta cuando A / T no se puede desplazar a la posición 5 ª marcha incluso si el circuito eléctrico es bueno.

Notas técnicas
Empieza por inspeccionar el nivel de líquido de la transmisión y el estado, y el líquido cambia si es necesario.

Este diagnóstico monitores de la posición real del engranaje de control de la relación de deslizamiento del convertidor de par calculado por el Módulo de Control de Transmisión (TCM) de la siguiente manera:
Convertidor de par deslizamiento ratio = A x C / B

R: El eje de salida de la señal revolución de la revolución del sensor
B: Motor de la señal de velocidad del motor del módulo de control (ECM)
C: Relación de cambio fijado en la posición del engranaje que supone la medicina tradicional china

Si la posición real del engranaje es más alto que la posición (5 º) supone por TCM, la proporción de deslizamiento será más de lo normal. En caso de que la relación es superior al valor especificado, los jueces TCM este mal funcionamiento diagnóstico.

Los síntomas:
- A la luz del motor (o motor del servicio pronto luz de advertencia)
- Cambios de la transmisión incorrecta

Posibles causas:
- La transmisión de bajo nivel de líquido
- Dirty líquido de la transmisión
- Turno de solenoides
- Problemas de transmisión mecánica
- Transmisión del circuito de control hidráulico

Espero que esto le ayude. Por si acaso, adjunto el detalle en ingles original.

Suerte.

Hello.

That doesn't sound right, I'd suggest getting the spoeedo checked. Even if you had the close ratio gear box which I think was fitted to the 4 cylinder engines, your speedo should be showing 160 km/h at 5000rpm in 5th.
