SOURCE: overdrive light flashing

There is an overdrive sensor located inside the transmission, you can goto any local garage and have it replaced fairly cheap or DIY by dropping the transmission pan and the sensor is located in plain sight, also the sensor is around 15-30$ through a parts store.

Where is the neutral safety switch


The backup lamps will light whenever the ignition switch is in the RUNposition and the transaxle is in REVERSE. On older vehicles, this function was handled by a dedicated switch with a name such as the Neutral/Safety Backup Light Switch, or something similar. This switch was designed to keep the engine from starting in any gear except PARK and/or NEUTRAL. The switch contacts also activated the backup lights when the transaxle was placed in REVERSE.

On the vehicles covered by this manual, the backup lamp control function is part of an integrated switch called the Transaxle Range switch (sometimes also called the Park/Neutral Position or PNP switch). In addition to turning on the backup lights, the Transaxle Range switches primary function is to transmit to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) the driver's transaxle range selection. The PCM uses this information to control both engine and transaxle functions electronically.

The Transaxle Range switch is mounted externally on the transaxle. New service replacement switches come pinned in the NEUTRAL position and no adjustment should be necessary. Please note that if the switch requires adjustment, GM recommends that their special tool J 41545 Park/Neutral Switch Alignment Tool be used to properly adjust the Transaxle Range switch, if required.



Removal & Installation

  1. Apply the parking brake and block the front wheels.
  2. Place the transaxle gear selector to NEUTRAL.
  3. Remove the air intake duct to access the switch located on the top of the transaxle at the range selector cable and arm.
  4. Disconnect the transaxle range selector cable.
  5. Detach the electrical connectors from the range selector switch.
  6. Remove the range selector lever retaining nut and lift off the lever.
  7. Unfasten the range selector switch mounting bolts, then remove the switch from the transaxle manual shaft.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Transaxle light flashing


The warning light is on because the electronic control module for the system has detected a problem. What must be done now is to have a trained tech with special tools scan the system and see what fault codes are stored that set when the computer turned on the warning got the Transaxle

When to change automatic transmission gear oil


The auto transaxle/differential fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles or 24 months. The transaxle fluid and differential lubricant use the same Dextron III automatic transmission fluid. If you have a three speed automatic transaxle, the transaxle differential has a separate lubricant supply that should be checked every 15,000 miles or every 12 months. By the way........ see if there is a Half Price Books or other used book store in or near your town. I find used repair manuals like Hayes or Chiltons for $8.00 or less all the time. Hope this helps.

My 2009 chev aveo has a hold button. the hold light on the dash is flashing. the book says take it in to fix. what can it be?


I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo. The hold light has come on two times since I have owned the vehicle. The first time at about 37,000 (just out of warranty)the vehicle started running very poorly. the check engine light came on as well as the hold light blinking. At first I thought it was a transmission problem, It was NOT. The problem with this gem of a car is that the spark plugs need to be replaced by 35,000 miles. The check engine light was due to the ignition coil pack being bad (cylinder 3) All four need to be replaced at once. After replacing the coil pack and plugs the check engine light went out and the hold light went out. This was an extremely easy repair. I walked my 13 year old daughter through the repair.


The second time the hold light went on was about a week ago. I now have about 52,000 miles. The light came on for no apparent reason. The only unusual thing that happened was that i accidentally spun the tires in the rain just before the light came on. The owners manual will tell you to bring it in asap because there could be serious problems. I couldn't believe i was having another major problem (there was no check engine light on this time) My guess was that the spinning of the tires could have had something to do with causing the hold light to go on and blink. What i did was disconnect the battery over night in an attempt to reset the light. It worked, i have not seen the light come back on in over a week. I drive about 50 miles a day on the highway as well as stop and go traffic. Ill call that a win.


These lights come on for a reason, if the light comes back on i will be planning on taking it in to a transmission specialist. I am not trying to say you should ignore your lights but sometimes a little effort before taking it into your mechanic can save you a bunch of money. I just wanted to share what i did with you all. Also you can have your check engine codes read my many auto part stores usually at no charge.


I would never buy another Aveo or recommend one to anyone. In my opinion they are poorly manufactured vehicles. I guess i should have guessed that any vehicle with a 3 year 36k mile warranty has such a short warranty for a reason! I hope i could help someone with my experience.

How difficult is it to replace an engine in a 200 kia sephia


1998-01 Models
NOTE: The procedure for removing the engine requires removing
the transaxle along with the engine as an assembly. As a result, when the
halfshafts are pulled from the transaxle, a special plug/side gear holding tool
is recommended.



  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of
    this Section.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • Battery cables
    • Battery and tray

  4. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  5. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • Data Link (DLC) from the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor bracket
    • Intake Air Temperature (IAT) and Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor connectors
    • Air intake hose from the throttle body
    • Ventilation hose and fresh air duct
    • Accelerator and, if equipped, cruise control cables
    • Air cleaner assembly
    • Brake booster and purge control vacuum hoses from the intake manifold
    • Upper and lower radiator hoses
    • Fuel hose from the fuel injector rail
    • Heater hoses
    • Idle Air Control (IAC) and Throttle Position (TP) sensor connectors
    • Fuel injector electrical connectors
    • Starter and generator electrical connectors
    • Engine ground strap
    • Left and right splash shields
    • Exhaust manifold heat shield and 3 power steering pump bracket bolts
    • Air conditioning compressor mounting bolts and position it aside leaving the
      hoses attached
    • Ground strap from the top of the transaxle
    • No. 4 engine mount
    • Input/turbine speed sensor connector, if equipped with an automatic
      transaxle
    • Back-up light switch, if equipped with a manual transaxle
    • Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
    • U-clip from the selector cable and the nut and washer from the transaxle
      linkage, if equipped with an automatic transaxle
    • Linkage and extension bar, then the clutch release cylinder and hydraulic
      hose, if equipped with a manual transaxle
    • Transaxle range switch and solenoid valve connectors, then the 2 transaxle
      oil cooler hoses, if equipped with an automatic transaxle
    • Front wheels
    • Oxygen (O2) sensor electrical connectors
    • Front exhaust pipe
    • Halfshafts

  6. Properly support the engine/transaxle assembly.
  7. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • 2 No. 2 engine mount-to-mounting member mounting bolts
    • 1 bolt from the No. 3 engine mount
    • 3 No. 1 engine mounting bolts, then carefully lift the engine/transaxle
      assembly from the vehicle

    To install:

  8. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Note the following
    important steps.
  9. When possible, leave the engine mounting nuts/bolts loose (hand tight) until
    all mounts are aligned and bolted. This may help in aligning the
    engine/transaxle assembly in the vehicle.
  10. Tighten the engine mount bolts/nuts as follows:

    • No. 1 mounting bolts: 50-70 ft. lbs. (67-93 Nm)
    • No. 3 mounting bolts: 63-86 ft. lbs. (85-116 Nm)
    • No. 2 mounting nuts: 28-38 ft. lbs. (38-51 Nm)
    • No. 4 mounting bolts: 47-66 ft. lbs. (64-89 Nm)
    • No. 4 mounting nuts: 49-68 ft. lbs. (68-93 Nm)

  11. Install new circlips on the inner CV-joint stub shafts, if equipped,
    intermediate shaft. Grease the shaft splines before installing the
    halfshaft/intermediate shaft into the transaxle.
  12. Always install new gaskets and/or O-rings. Use new self-locking nuts,
    especially on the exhaust.
  13. Fill the engine and the transaxle with the proper types and quantities of
    oil. Fill the cooling system.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.
    Check all fluid levels.
