    Transmission is most likely cooked drive came back as it has the tightest clutch in tranny to blow but if reverse isn't working with it it means that something is wrong inside the tranny

Mileage would be helpful. First thing I would do is check voltage. But dodge/chrysler has problems with the valve solenoid package's. It is on the front side of the transmission. If it is leaking fluid. I replace them first. I buy new ones(about $300). Easy to replace. Remove the cooler line hoses, remove the speed sensor. The bolts hold it down. First clean all around it. Especially between it and the transmission. Absolutely no dirt can get in the holes after you remove it. If you think it has,then use a shop vac to remove the dirt. You will suck fluid out also. Dirt in them will cause valves sticking, then the transmission will have to be pulled and cleaned out(basically a rebuild)

Testimonial: "Thanks Randy the kms are 267000, will check the solenoid pack. Are there signs of them being stuck or? if I remove them?"

    You can check them with an ohm meter. You should pull the electrical plug first, 10 MM socket to get it out., look for corrosion (white or green in color). It could be a bad connection. But most times it is the electrical set up inside the solenoid pack or a dead solenoid..

OK , first did you check fluid level ? and is it light pink and clean ? next you need to check linkage at trans to see if there is a problem with shifter moving trans through the gears ? after that then we are looking at internal problems which means you need someone who knows transmission repair to go through and check everything , torque converter, valve body, computer controller, lots of internal parts can cause different gear position loss.

SOURCE: My Neon. I had trans. flushed and fliter/fluid changed. Now trans. wont go into gear, have to rev engine and back off while in drive to get low to engage. over a certain speed ****** slips out again.

That proves my point that flushing is not a good idea

The flushing is not your problem entirely
It caused an already slipping transaxle to slip,
to where you can no longer use it

Any trans shop would have test driven & asked questions
& not changed the fluid

You need a complete rebuild or reman

NO FIX

The fluid change cause the already burnt clutches to
not work at all due to the different oil

Only the old dirty oil had the ability to lock up
the clutches

Lost fifth gear and reverse Mazda bravo 2006 model four wheel drive


Sounds like you have lost the shifter fork off of the actuator inside of the transmission. As long as there was no heavy grinding noise coming from inside of the trans you might have gotten lucky and it just fell to the bottom of the case, but either way the trans will need to be opened up to make the repairs. I suggest finding an honest and reputable trans shop.

1993 pontiac firebird automatic transmission will drive good but when I shift into reverse it will not move?


its not a sure fire fix but my 93 trans am did the same thing it had all forard driving gears and acted fine but no reverse so i with no better solution changed out the trans fluid and filter and just kept driving it but before i whent anywhere while the car was running i cycled it through the gears everytime b4 i left and about 2 weeks later i started it up and reverse was back i think it was due to a metal shaving that got lodged in one of the valve bodies a trans fluid flush is also a good idea i hope ur as lucky as i was

Have a 94 gmc 1500 4.3 automatic when i put it in drive it doesn't shift if i manuely shift from first to drive it will shift it doesn't have any slipping it also has overdrive that doesnt seem to work any...


Transmission does not shift automatically, only manually. Swap in a known-good PCM, check wiring, check other sensors such as VSS and TPS.

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: Transmision is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the underhood 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.

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.

Good luck and get back to me, hope this helps.

99 saturn sl2 has lost reverse


Reverse & 2nd gear share the same clutch pack.Usually when reverse goes out you will get wierd shifting into 2nd or 3rd.Most likey the Input shaft retaining nut has come loose inside the first clutch housing.It can be accessed from the trans end cover but it will take some disassembly.The trans doesn't have to come out to correct this problem.I repaired many saturns with this problem.The only parts you will have to buy is an end cover gasket(paper gasket) & 41/2 qts Trans fluid.Decent mechanice could do this in about 2-3 hrs or less.The service engine light is probally on due to trouble codes from the trans controller most likey DTC P0723 No 2nd gear.hope this helps

I have a 1989 camry the tramsmission was starting to slip on occassion in drive and reverse. While driving down the street without any warning I lost drive and reverse completely. Is there a vacuume pump...


Hi. It is not over for the transmission. But it is for the clutch system inside. Yes, the automatic transmissions got clutch(es) inside as well, they just work with the principle of centrifugal force. Once 1st gear reaches max rev, 2nd gear engages due to the mechanical energy generated inside, so forth and so on, ergo moving gears back and forth depending on speed. The trans repair costs for this camry should be around $500-$800 plus the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid). This repair, plus the adequate ATF, most preferably toyota ATF, will give your transmission life another 120,000 miles when 30,000 mile checks are made on time. Hope this will help.
