Question about Cars & Trucks

'08 F430 F1Spider: from a standing start, the trans. seems to tumble, but does come out of it. Happens only in 1st gear. ????

At a standing start, the car (60 % of the time) will bounce/tumble noticeably as I 'take off'. It acts like the gearing takes a moment to lock in and then comes out of it. Happens only in first gear.

Trans wont down shift into first gear automatic


Pull the trans & rebuild it

Can't fix slipping

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 z71 it has a 4l60-e trans want shift out of 1st gear until around 5500rpms and you hold it and will not shift out of 2nd gear when in 2nd gear and when I try to drop down...


If you have used the vehicle like that for as little as
a few days, you stand little chance of saving the trans
from a complete rebuild

You need a trans shop or a place you like & trust to
road test & diagnose

I think your beyond a solenoid or module fix, since
you have been using it & it slips as well ,instead of
proper shifting

1996 gmc jimmy will not shift to 3rd gear


Hi, It may be in LIMP mode.

What is "limp-home mode" ? This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

Common failures on 4L60E, symptom any possible repair:

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under-hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter :ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Trans seems noisy when moving in 1st and Reverse, noise goes away instantly if you shift to N or the trans goes into 3rd gear: Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R sooner rather than later.

3rd gear starts, can manually shift through all gears. When car has been turned off for a bit, then back on it will run normally.: VSS dropoff w/ Hi-stall converter. The rpms are too high, but VSS is showing no movement. Happens after a tire burning take-off. Doesn't store a code, will not throw a CEL (I've heard that it will store a code if it happens 3 or more times). Cure: Reprogram PCM for VSS dropoff -- PCMforLess knows about it.

If you can get the Jimmy for no more then $500.00 and the engine sounds good and body is good, you may want to invest in the repair of the jimmy. Also note that to have a close look at the fuel line along the frame on the drivers side just by the back doors, the line is know to corroded there on all the SUV's

My 92 Dakota seems to not want to shift out of 1st gear, then doesn't shift into overdrive It doesn't seem to be slipping and shifts fine once it gets out of first


Not sure about your trans, but on some the modulator can have a leak & this will make it hold gears much longer than usual, is usually a small diameter vacuum line from the manifold to the trans, check it's conections

Auto trans a bit sluggish and seems to make a whining? sound


When you hear it winning like that its usely because the trans. filter is resticting the flow of oil thru it, because its getting pluged up and the oil is wore out, might be a good time to have trans. serviced, Before it really cost you$$$$.

Inconsistant transmission problems on 2003 jeep gcl


Many times this is caused by either a sticking electronic shift solenoid in the transmission or the trans fluid and filter need to be replaced, has the trans been serviced, it should have been done at 60,000 miles.
