    it may be the Transmission Speed Sensor since it sounds like you are driving a vehicle with an Automatic Transmission. The sensor communicates the RPMs to the PCM so that it knows what gear to be in, when to shift as well as locking up the clutches with the torque Converter. Hope that is the issue and that I was able to help.

    You may even consider checking the Transmission Fluid level before buying parts. Bring it up to running temperature by driving it, Set the parking brake and shift the Transmission into Neutral. With the engine running check the fluid level with the Transmission Dipstick.

Chevy 2002 2500 series, 4x4 will not engage, when shifted into 4wd a kind of grinding noise comes from the front like gears are not meshing.


No hubs on 2002 Chevy 2500. I'd check the front axle actuator (engages front axle when 4WD is engaged). Belive it's on the passage side axle tube of front differential. Could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like. Or the front ring/pinion is shot. They don't turn when not in 4wd.

What are the problems of a faulty transmission speed sensor in a 2002 land rover discovery 2 v gas?


run the fault codes and look for a faulty torque converter clutch solenoid /servo and a problem TCM unit. A service if not done in the last 60.000 miles would also help.

Overdrive light is on, transmission want go into 4th gear


THE TRANSMISSION IN THE MODEL IS ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED SO WHEN A PROBLEM LIKE THIS OCURRS IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THE COMPUTER CONTROL UNIT SCANNED FOR FAULT CODES. I THINK IN YOUR CASE YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE A PART CALLED THE "VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR", IT SENDS A SIGNAL TO THE COMPUTER TO INDICATE WHEN OVERDRIVE CAN BE ENGAGED, THIS IS ABOUT 35 MILES PER HOUR IN MOST MODELS.

I'm looking to get a 2005 volvo S60 2.5 with 61K miles. The car drives very well and it feels comfortable. But when I go from reverse to drive there is a hesitation and a hard engagement of the gear into...


This is a software problem but there are a few other components involved as well. Most dealers will try and convince you that the transmission have to be replaced which is not the solution.
I have been trying to solve a similar problem with my car and I found the mass airflow sensor can cause this. I recently found that the accelerator pedal is sending confusing signals to the ecu and this also causes problems like this.
I have a training procedure from Aison Warner that can also solve this problem. Contact me at wvdm@global.co.za if you have not solved the problem and I can give you some more information

It could be the fuel pressure regulator valve is at fault. Maybe its time to have a fuel pressure diagnostic run along with having the injectors flushed. How is the transmission fluid level looking, check it on the transmission dipstick whilst the engine is running (have someone engage 'drive' while both the parking and foot brakes are engaged). If it is brown and low replace the transmission filter and top up with fresh fluid

Tranmission seems to come out of gear at various speeds.


Make sure you have the right transmission fluid chrysler has a special type of trasmission fluid I believe it ATF+4. change the fluid and filter and the add three quarts of ATF+4 and one quart of "Lucas transmission slip. This should fix the problems. Mike

I have a 2001 Volvo S60 with Automatic Transmission. Every once and a while it seems to hesitate when shifting from second to third gears. This happens once every couple of weeks.. I will be excellerating...


When was the last time you had a trans flush ? Sounds like you could use one. Trans fluid breaks down and doesnt work as well as i did when it was new. There are also sensors that tell it when to change gears could also be a sensor. I would start with a trans flush if it were my car. always try the least expensive first. then if u still have the problem look into calling a trusted transservice and ask them if the have any experiance in Volvo trans. if not fluid my bet is on a sensor in the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps ya.
