I had a 1991 Dodge Caravan that did the same thing. I had a transmission rebuilt because of the problem you describe. I was told it was a seal inside the transmission that was leaking fluid from an internal chamber when the engine was at an idle (like it is when you are at a stop sign). A redesigned seal fixed my problem. I would bet if you gave it a little gas with one foot and kept your foot on the brake it wouldn't act like it had dropped out of gear. If you have the money for a transmission rebuild that might be something to consider but if you are tight on money, a bottle of lucas transmission additive might help your problem. That seemed to help me so I could get some money together for a transmission rebuild. I realize that most mechanics will say that your transmission doesn't need an additive of any kind, I also realize that sometimes in real life you have to do what your pocketbook/ wallet can afford.

Good luck.

SOURCE: transmission wont pull in reverse

you need it rebuilt. lol the clutches are worn out in forward gears, producing the late engagement and slipping, and reverse is burnt out. The fluid probably isnt red anymore, check to find out, but it needs to be removed and serviced before the etire transmission gives out.

2008 PT cruiser automatic not shifting into Drive. Seems to be stuck in a lower gear. What needs to be done? Thank you.


Do you have a check engine light on?
Most current automatic transmissions will be put into a "limp" mode if the electronics detect a fault in the transmission. That is, the transmission will go into one gear (usually second or third depending on how many speed ranges the transmission has) and allow you to drive it slowly to a service department or transmission shop. The intent is to prevent further damage by continuing to drive with the problem. It's possible the problem is relatively minor and inexpensive to repair, but continuing to drive it will almost certainly cause more damage (and be more expensive) to repair.

If it shifts smooth in first to second but red lines and I have to drive it in second gear does that still mean my clutch is out?


There are a number of causes for the failure of the automatic transmission as you have described it.

You will need to take the car to the dealership or to a transmission specialist for a proper fault check and diagnosis. From the symptoms you have described here I believe you will be looking at having to replace the auto transmission with a rebuilt unit because there will most likely be significant internal damage to transmission components . Most of these problems are due to poor/inadequate maintenance which in many cases is zero maintenance of the transmission by owners.

I would suggest a service of the automatic transmission where the filter will be cleaned, bands tightened and new transmission fluid put in. the autotransmission is often forgotten about in our car servicing.
