Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Galant transmission problems

I have a 1995 galant that doesn't shift well. When I run it for about 3 minutes it shifts and drives fine, but after that it doesn't shift past 2nd or sometimes 1st gear. It shifted perfect before this started happening. No slips or jurks when I would shift out of park. What could be wrong?

    I know the level of fluid is good, I didn't notice the fluid color or texture. I check that next. Thanks.

Have you checked your tranny fluid level, also does it smell burnt or really look brown or milky?

In my 95 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 just had the transmission rebuilt 3 weeks ago I was driving down the road and it shifted 1st to 2nd fine but from 2nd to 3rd it reved up all the way to 4500 rpms before...


That could be a perfect reason to take it back to the shop where it was just repaired for repeat service. Either that or you spun out in the mud.

Sounds like the sensor for first gear.
The transmission comes with a shift sensor for each shift: if 4 shift, 4 sensor (including reverse).
Have somebody check the sensors and the cpu for the tranny. They go hand to hand.

First doublecheck your transmission fluid level. Its the red handled dipstick near the back of the motor. You check trans fluid level WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING. If that is ok, you might be getting towards the end of that trannys life. My mother had a bonninville, for the last 2 years we had to drop it down to 1st (the 1 on the gear shift) then into drive. This worked for a couple years before it finally blew out. Try going from 1st then into "D" and make sure it shifts, You can always shift it manually from 1st to 2nd to 3rd to drive if needed. Aint gunna hurt anything, just dont go over 3-4 on you tachometer. You dont wanna redline it.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.

1995 cadilac deville has problem shifting from 1 to 2 gear


You don't have torque converter shudder. You don't even mention that in your original post! You def had a solenoid issue. My 94 STS did the same thing. I only had reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. Wouldn't shift outa 2nd period. It was a $200 solenoid repair. Car had a 160K on it when that happened. I have almost 170k on it now. Shifts and works fine. you don't need the tranny replaces ad josavv63 indicates.

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.

You need to have to transmission filter changed. Dirty filter and not letting it shift. Can you start the motor and let it run about 10-minutes befroe driving. It could be that the fluid is cold and thick, not wanting to shift????? Try that.
