Have you tried the shift module it is towards the front of the transmission pan on the left hand side if you are on your back underneath it. it has two wires attached to it brown and white i think but don't quote me on that it will just pull out with a little pressure after you remove the two retaining screws part is about twenty bucks

If you can shift into 3 and 4 gear with the engine off then probably the synchronizer are stripped you can also do a road test if you can shift into first then you can drive the truck and shift by synchronization if you can shift like that then you need a clutch

I have a 1988 Corvette with a 700R4, not wanting to shift from 1st. to 2nd. unless I leave my foot off the gas for it to shift. Contact mac1212sr@aol.com


Transmissions have "synchros" that adjust the speed when shifting from one gear to the next, because the engine's RPMs, while correct for, say, 1st gear, are too high to shift to 2nd gear.

If you're really careful, and an expert driver, you can shift a manual transmission from one gear to the next without using the clutch at all.


However, you seem to have a transmission problem with the 1-2 synchros.

So i have a 1993 Firebird Formula, it has a corvette shift kit in the transmission. When im driving the car, shifting from 1st to 2nd gear is fine. When i shift to 3rd and 4th gear sometimes it works and...


Why is there a Corvette shift kit, and not a Firechicken shift kit? Check your tv cable adjustment and of course your fluid level. Shift improvement kits are built for the vehicle for which they are intended, and you don't gain by putting a kit in a vehicle you want, in the vehicle you have. It should not , however, effect downshift that much. Find a reputable tranny shop in your area, and they should be able to help.

My1988 chevy 2500 2x4 auto shifts into 2nd at about 30 and shifts into drive at about 45 mph.It doesn't slip but takes forever to shift.Any ideas what the problem might be?


Engine load is determined by throttle position via the TV cable. Either a stuck valve due to some crud, or a broken or disconnected TV cable. Start there, the TV cable is the critical adjustment to those 700R4 and the tv cable will make or break how that thing shifts.
Look up the leading transmission builders in your area and find the initial setting then what to did is move it a notch at a time (made it tighter then drove it) till you get a nice firm shift...its pretty easy to set once you've done it a few times. good luck

Only reverse works. No foward gears.


No forward movement in OD or D, but L2, L1 and R work: Forward sprag is broken. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

Do you have manual 1st? If so, can you shift through the gears...i.e. manual 1st to manual 2nd then 'D' then 'OD'??? Only 1st and 2nd gears use the forward sprag unless the LO/Rev clutch is engaged...i.e. 1st and 2nd if in "drive". If you can shift threw the gears manually then, yes, your forward sprag broke.

If no manual 1st then your sprag is not what broke. Sounds like you blew up the rear planet. If you pull the pan and find chunks of iron and steel, then that is probably what happened. If you have reverse then it is not the pump. If the pump was bad you would have no line pressure and it would slip in rev. or no rev. Not the beef sun shell either because you have rev., a broken sun shell would cause no 2nd, 4th and rev. gears. Either way the trans needs to come out and torn down and it will be easily found what went. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Hard shift from 1st to 2nd, and nothing in drive.


It sounds like a Solenoid problem. It might also be a clutch pack. If you felt like cracking it open to take a look, you might be able to do the rebuild yourself because there are ample parts available, but you might be better off just finding a new used tranny.

Replacing a 4L60E with a 700R4?


Not with good results, the 4L60E is run by your ecm, the 700R4 while looking close to the same does not relie on your ecm for commands,it relies on a cable to regulate your line pressure.

Trans abrupt shift up & down between 1st & 2nd


Honda requires a highly friction modified fluid,or additive.Drain the fluid and replace with genuine Honda fluid.This should calm down the shifts a little.Fluid level is checked with the engine OFF.Also on your year Honda,there is a cable that runs from the accellerator linkage under the hood,down to the transmission.This cable is responsible for shift timing,and shift FEEL,and it is adjustable for these purposes.At the transmission are 2....12 mm nuts jammed against each other with a steel bracket in between.Loosen the nuts,and then the cable can be adjusted.For a softer shift feel,loosen the nuts,and take the end of the cable,and move it TOWARD the little arm (down) sticking out from the trans.This effectively makes the cable SHORTER resulting in softer shifts.For harder and later shifts,move the cable the opposite way,effectively making the cable LONGER.Beware though.adjusting the cable TOO much towards the softer side can cause the trans to start slipping and actually burn up clutch packs inside the trans,so some common sense is needed when adjusting the cable.Good luck,and remember to rate this solution.
