Check the transmission fluid, make sure it has plenty in it. You didn't mention what year it is but if you have very many miles on it the fluid should be changed around 25 thousand miles. The filter on the transmission could be clogged. With out seeing the car it is hard to tell. You should be able to get a code if there is a transmission problem. Have someone hook a code scanner to and see. I hope this is helpful. Giving such information as mileage, regular maintenance, year, make model, all help us give you a better diagnosis.

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

Hi angelsr. Begin by checking the transmission fluid level. It will operate best when it is at the high end of the full range. Once you have checked that and possibly added fluid to the transmission, drive it for 5 miles and then go into 4H. IF it still isn't working properly chances are that the bands on the transmission are loose. Then drive to an AAMCO transmission shop or other transmission shop and have your transmission serviced.

How you fill up the subaru forester automatic transmission with fluid? Putting fluid but it isn't reaching the pan.


Do you have a non sealed transmission ? If yes, have you tried filling it with the vehicle running ?

HOLD light flashing


automatic transmissions are incredibly complex machines! I do NOT recommend diagnosing problems yourself! The best I can suggest, is to try selecting gears manually; Low 1,2,3,neutral, reverse, park. If the car has a selection for overdrive (a D in a circle) avoid that one.

What does the A/T eco switch do in my 2002 forester XT


It seems to turn the Eco light on in the dashboard. It doesn't really affect anything in the ECU of the car. Its used to show you if you are driving economically. Accelerate hard or go over 110 km/hr and the light will turn off even if the switch is on. The hold button keeps the car out of first gear so it will take off in 2nd and will try to change to 3rd or 4th as soon as possible to stop sliding on snow or ice. Hope this helps.
