Hello, Make sure the transmission fluid is up to the full mark on the dipstick if this is an automatic transmission.

SOURCE: gear shift moves fine will not engage gear.

then the transmission has failed or has sticking engagement solenoid in trans pan, have the fluid and filter replaced and see if that corrects the problem

SOURCE: goes into all gears & 4wd, but will not move or attempt to move.

check the fluid level,sometimes the torque converter will drain back into the transmission overfilling it and leak out over long periods of time

SOURCE: 5-speed transmission making noise in 3rd and 5th gear

are u sure the alignment (side to side, up and down) of the trans on the bell housingis not out of spec, that will burn the bearings out very quickly.

have a feeling you need a different grade of tranny fluid or in our terms the transmission oil,is the wrong grade for the extreme temperatures you are encountering .Keep vehicle in a heated garage

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Wiper blade on my 98 C230 goes a quarter of the way up then stops and makes clicking noise for about 10 seconds. When I move it by hand it will go back into start position. Should I still try the lube...


sounds like the gears inside of the wiper mechanism have gone bad. there is a strip of gears in the shape of a half moon that the wiper motor rides on in order to move the wiper blade back and forth. When those gears strip out the wiper will only move a certain distance and then stop. One way to tell is if you can move the wiper arm by hand. When the gears are good the wiper arm should not move at all by hand.

Vibrates for 10-15 seconds and then settles down. When I put it in gear it stops. Also having a problem putting it in gear and it will not move. When I add more gas it will jerk into motion. thanks


I have a 1997 Cadillac that does this due to a small leak into cylinder #1 from the cooling system through a head gasket that wets the spark plug making it vibrate for the first 10-15 sec.

Transmission problem solvable by changing fluid or rebuilding transmission (more expensive route but also more effective).

When below 20 degrees, I start the car, put it in reverse and it will not move. Rev the engine to about 3000 to 3500 and it starts to move. Go to drive and back again and it moves a little more. Than it...

replace your transmission as. your clutches have burned and, the cost of repair would be prohibitive.
