Question about 1995 Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

Transmission will not engage and slips when it does engage

When you start the car and put it in drive it moves forward for about 50 yards then the transmission starts to slip and slow down even though it is in drive and the engine is reved. it will eventually come to a stop while still in drive and reving the engine. There is no unusual noise of any kind. You then can turn off the car then restart it and put in drive again and it will again engage and start to move forward. Then it will again start to slip and come to a stop. Car has 159k miles and dont think the trans filter and fluid has ever been changed. What could be the problem. If the gears in the transmission were bad then it would not move forward and if it did there would be alot of noise. Please help.

Auto trans operates on fluid pressure. if the trans has never been serviced, more than likely the filter is plugged, and or the fluid is bad. no doubht its burned and will smell and look like it. get it towed to a shop and have the fliud and filter changed first, then check the band adjustment.recommend a trans shop do it and not jiffylube.

Depends on what auto tranny you have. If you take it to an tranny shop and have an exchange rebuilt put in be prepared to shell out $3500.00 for replacement.

96 ROVER DISC. Has strong reverse - won't engage any forward gears. Fluid seems full even when warm.


Make sure the 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn't slipped out of correct spot to get you moving forward.

1998 audi a4 transmission engaged when depressing brake


You have two problems. First you probably have a bad brake master cylinder, or a severe brake fluid leakage somewhere. Second forcing it into park damaged your transmission.

I have a 92 Honda Accord and the transmission slips out of gear when it downshifts from 4th to 3rd. I step on the gas and the rpm's go up but the car does not move, like it is in neutral. I turn the car...


Sounds like transmission is screwed. Worn sun gears due to lack of proper care in the transmissions earlier days. Must have run dry & lost teeth on gears. New car time.... Cheaper for a used transmission to be put in then have the current one fixed.

WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE


Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it
