When is the last time you checked your transmission fluid? If it's low it could help to add some, but I hate to tell you it sounds like it's on the way out.

Why doesnt my 2007 TRX500FE 4x4 will not shift neutral and reverse work


Your gearbox is probably bust or you need to learn how to drive backwards.

Manual Transmission made a clunking noise while pulling away from a stop sign while in first gear. Car would then not move forward or reverse. Able to shift in all 5 gears and also in reverse.


sounds like you have a busted drive shaft or a bust spigot shaft going into your gear box. Easiest way to check on this is to jack up the front of the vehicle and spin the wheels. If the drive shafts move then they are fine and you have a busted spigot shaft. The only way to replace this shaft is to drop the gear box and replace it.

My 1993 Gmc Sierra 2500 automatic first gear shifts hard also from park to drive others gears are smooth i have overdrive


The gear shift lever indicators tell you what gear you have an automatic transmission in on your vehicle. The shift solenoid tells the transmission when to shift gears and what gear to shift into. Newer model automatic transmissions have electronic shift solenoids that are activated and change gears based on the speed the vehicle is traveling. Troubleshooting either one of these transmission components is relatively easy if you know a little about automobile mechanics. With the right tools, you can determine whether the transmission shift solenoid is having a problem. Gear shift indicator problems can be determined simply by moving the gears into their designated position.
Transmission Shift Solenoid
  • 1 Raise each corner of the vehicle up with the car jack and place jack stands under the frame. Make sure the car is raised high enough so you can work under the car freely.
  • 2 Slide the drain pan under the transmission fluid drain plug. Remove the drain plug with a ratchet and socket, and let all the fluid drain out of the transmission. Remove the transmission pan bolts with a ratchet and socket. Pull the pan away from the bottom of the transmission, revealing the transmission shift solenoid.
  • 3 Wipe off the shift solenoid with a shop towel. Disconnect one of the two plugs that attaches to the shift solenoid. Turn the knob on the volt meter to the ohms setting, so resistance can be measured. Set the volt meter on 200.
  • 4 Take the black lead of the volt meter and touch the negative battery terminal wire. Take the red lead of volt meter and slide the tip into the terminal plug you just disconnected from the shift solenoid. Look at the reading you get on the digital display of your volt meter. Determine if the reading is between 12 and 25. Readings below 12 or above 25 tell you that the shift solenoid is not working. Reattach the plug to the shift solenoid and pull the second plug attached to the solenoid. Perform the same procedures on this plug wire. Replace the transmission shift solenoid after determining it is bad.
Gear Shift Indicator
  • 1 Move the gear shift into the desired gear. Look at the gear labels and the arrow, or other indicator, to see if the gear shift indicator lines up with the selected gear.
  • 2 Move the gear lever to another gear and look to see if the indicator lines up with the selected gear. Misalignment of the arrow will tell you if there is a problem. Moving the gear shift to "neutral" but having the indicator show the transmission is in "drive" tells you the gear shift indicator is not working properly.
  • 3 Try each gear position to determine how much misalignment is in the indicator. Slide under the car and check for a loose gear shift cable. Check all the gear shift cable connections to ensure they are all tight and are not missing. Tighten any loose gear shift cable clamps or bolts. Replace the gear shift cable if you find that this is causing the misalignment with the gear shift indicator.

I have a 1997 Saturn SL with a five-speed standard transmission. It suddenly started (seemingly) skipping 1st and 2nd gears. When I'm ready to drive forward and shift the gear-shift lever to (what used...


Take out your middle console and watch your shift cables as your shifting, you may have something stuck or maybe your shift cable bushing has broken. So i would just take the console out, and try shifting in all your gears. And then you will most likely find out what your problem is. :)) Good luck. Hope this helps. I have a saturn too and I LOVE IT!!! Good choice of a car!!! James Booth

Stick shift just flops around. What is the problem?


Could be one of a few things, broken linkage cables, busted gears or broken shift fork. Best thing to do is to call a mechanic and get it looked at.

Transmission stays in overdrive


If check engine light is on, have the codes read by your mechanic or local auto parts superstore.

Some automobiles have a switch on the dashboard or on the gear shift that activates the overdrive function on or off.
