If you are not getting an check engine light,sounds like you need an good tune up,you can also take it to an autoparts store and get them to pull any codes,to what problems you have,they do this for free at most places.

Interrogate ecu using atologic P0732 Gear 2 incorrect ratio P07667 shift Sol d


Gear 2 Incorrect Ratio Our emissions expert has put together the following information about the P0732 fault code. We have also included diagnostic procedures you can take to your repair shop if the mechanic is having difficulty analyzing the code.
OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0732
Fault Code Definition
  • Gear 2 Incorrect Ratio
What does this mean?
The purpose of the automatic transmission is to match the engine's optimum power and torque characteristics to the driver's desired rate of acceleration and speed by auto-selecting different gear ratios or 'speeds' to power the wheels.
Code P0732 When the code P0732 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Powertrain Computer or PCM is seeing a greater than a specified RPM difference between the rotational speed of the Input RPM Sensor and the Transmission Output RPM Sensor when the vehicle is in 2nd gear. This can occur during shifting or when driving at steady speeds. It often implies that the transmission is slipping.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • Vehicle will not shift properly
  • Decrease in fuel economy
  • In unusual cases, there are no adverse conditions noticed by the driver
  • In some cases, there may be performance problems, such as dying when coming to a stop after driving on the freeway and/or misfire-like symptoms
Common Problems That Trigger the P0732 Code
  • Defective 2nd gear shift solenoid
  • Defective 2nd gear related gear set or clutch pack
  • Defective Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
  • Defective Valve Body
  • Dirty transmission fluid that restricts the hydraulic passages
Common Misdiagnoses
  • Engine Misfire problem
  • Internal Transmission problem
  • Driveline problem
Polluting Gases Expelled
  • HCs (Hydrocarbons): Unburned droplets of raw fuel that smell, affect breathing, and contribute to smog
  • CO (Carbon Monoxide): Partially burned fuel that is an odorless and deadly poisonous gas
  • NOX (Oxides of Nitrogen): One of the two ingredients that, when exposed to sunlight, cause smog
P0732 Diagnostic Theory for Shops and Technicians
When diagnosing a P0732 code, it is important to record the freeze frame information and then to duplicate the code setting conditions with a test drive. Pay close attention to the engine load, throttle position, RPM, and road speed because a P0732 can be difficult to detect.
One should monitor the RPM input speed and compare that to output speed RPM on a smooth, flat surface after the vehicle is warmed up and the fuel system is in a closed loop. Monitor how the 2nd gear solenoid configuration responds to an increased amount of throttle. The 2nd gear related solenoid should stay in 2nd gear and the transmission should NOT slip.

PO766

Possible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid D valve
- Shift solenoid D valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid D valve circuit is open or shorted
Tech notesWhen the a transmission solenoid is stuck off, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced. When is the code detected?The P0766 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off P0766 Description Shift solenoid valve D is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position.

I have a 2005 Hyundia Tucson Diesel and when i select 2nd gear there seems to be a rattling noise coming from the front of the car it only seems to be when the engine is labouring it doesnt effect the...


you are labouring the engine too much for the engine power ,you must keep teh RPM up it is a diesel and they will not develop power like a petrol engine at low RPM ,always pull away in first gear anyway or you will burn the clutch out in no time

My fiesta is mis firing and i bought a obd scanner and the code has come up with p0030 ho2s bank 1 sensor 1 heater circuit how do i fix that to keep it running??help please....


P0030....HO2S Heater Control Circuit (Bank 1 Sensor 1) and to be truthfull i havent a clue as to what its refering too , i can only sumise its something to do with the heat going into the inlet manifold from the cooling system and a sensor is reading the temperature and adjusting the fuel mixture accordingly .sorry i havent been much help for this but if you ever change a front wheel bearing then make sure the grey coloured paint is fitted to the sensor side (interior by drive shaft) or the ABS light doesnt go out

Have a manual transmission in our 04 Ranger. 500


You could have a problem with the clutch actuation system. It could be the master or the slave cylinder. Does the clutch pedal feel funny? Look under the steering column and locate the pushrod at the top of the clutch pedal. If it is wet where it goes through the firewall, then the master cylinder needs to be repaired/replaced. Raise the hood and check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir and refill if necessary. Look under the truck and locate the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission. If it looks wet (oily), replace it. Bleed the system of air bubbles.

It is possible to drive the truck without a clutch. You have to start it in 1st gear. Accelerate gently, then take your foot off the gas and gently pull the gear shift into 2nd. When the engine rpm drops to match the transmission input speed, 2nd gear will engage. Repeat the process with 3rd through 5th. It will take a little practice to do this well, but you can do it.

1) Loosing antifreeze 2) tranny shifts funny


if your exhaust is loose it causes car to run hotter, also if you are running the wrong gas in it, so check on that.HOWEVER your thermostat and water pump are the main suspects here. If you are losing antifreeze, it may be a blown head gasket which is No good, this is caused by your 2 main suspects here. Check oil and tranny fluid levels. you cant keep driving a car thats having problems, .. thats how you get bigger problems like blown head gaskets. TRUST ME. as a teen i owned 3 differnt cars, and had to chang head gasket on every one of them because of POOR MAINTENACE. check these things, and get back to me

Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.

Blazer transmission not shifting properly beetween 1 and 2


Your going to have to get the ECM scanned, Auto Zone scan's for free and most garage now will scan for $10.00 to $15.00 since they all have the scanners now and need the business.
You could have a Vehicle Velocity Sensor (V V S)  going bad or the wire harness it self. The V.V.S tells the ECM how fast the drive shaft is rotating and calculate's what gear it should be in relative with the engine speed and throttle position, and transmission fluid pressure.
Regardless you need the Blazer scanned to pin point why your transmission is shifting the way it is. Could be as simple as time for transmission oil and filter change for $125.00 or a loose wire harness.
Check your transmission fluid and try not to run the blazer to hard, to replace the transmission start at $1,900.00 for a rebuilt.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted

Noise when in park


the squeaking sound coming from the engine would very very likely be the serpentine belt, it is probably not properly adjusted but could also be cracking and need replaced, after the belt warms up the belt is more plyable and looses the noise. i would replace it, as for the rough sound i would need more info i.e. exactly where the noise is coming from if it changes when gas is tapped, try putting different conditions that make it worse or better when something is done, this will help detecting the area or problem at hand.
