I would check the vacuum line to the modulator valve on the side of the transmission first. This will keep the transmission from upshifting, however that should not affect the reverse band. From your description, you are probably due for a reman transmission or overhaul.

My 2003 Chrysler 300M 3.5L is seriously missing out. Thought it was bad gas(water). Won't rev up above 4000rpm while idling in Park. Intermittently, won't rev up above 2500rpm while driving. ...

Go to Autozone, Advance, etc.. any good parts store and OBII scan done (fault scan) they do this FREE. Scan will tell you what sensor(s) to go after to fix. Once you repair or replace sensor have parts store reset your light.

1.Can a flashing hold light/faulty mass air flow sensor burn the clutches in a transmission? 2.if vehicle reves out after changing into second gear and transmission is rebuilt and problem still persist...

The ecm would not cause this, it sounds like someone did a poor rebuild, if the engining is reving and the car doesnt what to go then the clutches may be bad, a mass are flow would not cause a trany to go bad, the flashing hold light is a problem but should not be happening after the trany was just rebuilt, something is not right here, the trany was just rebuilt and now the hold light flashes and the motor rev going into 2nd gear, that trany has problems a bad ecm wouuldnt cause this slipping reving problem you are having , i would have a trany shop check to see if that trany was really rebuit.

My 2003 Pontiac Wont go in reverse when u put it in reverse...What could the problem be and How much can I estimate spending to fix it

This problem can be caused by two things low trany fluid or worn trany, warm engine and put car on level ground and check trany oil level, if the oil level is good then you may need a rebuild, this kinda job could run about $1,800.00 to $2,500.00 depending on where you live and what trany shop you go to. hope this is helpful.

When i back up or go forwad i heard a sound from all the ingenie like it is movning?

Without seeing, it's hard to come up with a solution, but raise the hood and have someone (or yourself) look at the engine motor mounts when the car is put in forward or reverse. You may have a broken motor mount.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

I have a 2000 golf 2.0 (automatic) it is not shifting properly. check engine light is on. when i drive @ 30-40mph it revs between 3-4rpm when usual it would be @ 2. what could this be?

the first thing i would do would be to check the trany fluid level,make sure engine is warm and then check, some of these vws dont have dip sticks to check the trany oil level,theres a procedure to check,so if yours doesnt have a dip stick you should take it somewhere and have the level checked and also check for leaks,if the trany oil is full then i would have the trany checked, also that check engine light may have something to do with the shifting problem,have the computer scanned, the codes will help you diagnose the problem,auto zone will scan it for free, there are other parts places that will also scan and give you a read out of the codes stored in the computer, hope this helps.

Help! 2003 Hyundai Accent problems. Transmission??

well the first thing you need to do is to pull the stored codes in the computer and see what they say and then go from there, this could be a speed sensor or a trany going bad , i dont know if this is an automatic or standard trany, start with the codes from the check engine light, autozone car parts store will scan the computer at no charge,

'95 cadillac eldorado driving and went to pass a car. The engine would rev up to 4000 rpm and car would slowly go. check engine light came on. I parked the car and turned it off. when i restarted the car...

well sounds like the trany is slipping, make sure trany fluid is full and clean, also check engine light will reset when ignition is turned off but if you scan computer a code can be pulled to help in diagnosing this problem. start with checking the fluid and making sure its clean and full. good luck hope this is helpful.
