If the check engine light is on as well, the van may be stuckin "limp in mode" which keeps the transmission from causing internal damage. Aside from that check the fluid level and condition. Fluid should not be excessively dark or smell burnt. If fluid is not the issue, it needs to be checked by your dealer or independent shop

Why doesnt my 1988 98 oldsmobile shift into third gear


If it is a manule trans then you need to shift it sooner. And for the reason it will not go into third gear is the gear could be gone or the saycronizer is bad. You will have to put in a new trans or get this one fixed in order to get third gear.

Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level. You could also drain and replace the trans fluid to see if this solves the problem. Changing the fluid is considered regular maintence, and will not hurt a thing. The trans will benifit from fresh fluids in the long run also.

Your transmission has gone in to a limp home mode or fail safe mode, trans computer has locked third gear to prevent any more damage. Needs a diagnostic scan to confirm fault code could disconnect battery for 10 mins and drive to see if problem reaccures. Trans computer common to fail.

Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

TRANS STUCK IN 3RD ON A DODGE CARAVAN 2000


The mechanic should check the third gear of the transmission . And the shift gear check the shift gear too for why it stuck while on the third gear. if the gear is worn out or destroyed then replace the third gear.Then also look and check the oil seal to make sure the problem is solved. then check and adjust the shift lever sleeve so that it will not stuck.

sounds like you got a bad shift syncro for 3rd gear, its inside the trans,cuse ive never adjust shift cables on a s-series now matter what was done to the trans,and that cable controls more than just 3rd gear so its gotta be the syncro,,sorry,,,cheaper to get a used trans than to fix

When was the last time you had a trans flush ? Sounds like you could use one. Trans fluid breaks down and doesnt work as well as i did when it was new. There are also sensors that tell it when to change gears could also be a sensor. I would start with a trans flush if it were my car. always try the least expensive first. then if u still have the problem look into calling a trusted transservice and ask them if the have any experiance in Volvo trans. if not fluid my bet is on a sensor in the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps ya.

Will not shift to third gear


U need to have a trouble code test run to see if the 2-3 shift solenoid inside the trans is defective or the circuit to it, this can also be a trans connector problem.
