Driving my 93 astro van on highway ....running great, then it was as if I shifted into neutral ,I lost my forward momentum ,engine still running great ,but no power to tranny ,please help

I immediately looked in my mirrors to see if something had come off the van but nothing ,linkage still good ,no leaks of any kind ,is this common when a transmission goes out nowadays ,I don't get it ,it was running fine ,it was like I shifted into neutral but I didn't touch anything but the steering wheel to pull off road .

2000 Kia Sephia engine runs fine, but does not move in drive, low or reverse


Never heard of a transmission control reset, but after much research, I found they can be reset by removing both battery terminals, then touching both terminals together for 5 to 10 seconds, then seperate and reattach the terminals to battery. Evidently the transmission control has an internal memory. Try that first, then i sould suspect transmission control module. the control module controls every aspect of transmission shifting. Hope that helps!

I have a 2000 GMC safari van 2-wheel drive. When it shifts to 3rd it seems to jump into neutral. What can cause this? Changed transmissions and it is doing the same thing


My local transmission specialst tells me that ALL GM van transmissions run hot. Especially within the Safari/Astro design - that doesn't reflect the wind very well (compared to today's smaller mini-vans). He recommends ATF aux cooler (LPD Design) be installed in all Safari / Astro vans - even non-towing vans. For example, Hayden 678 or 679 LPD design.

re: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HDA-678/

If wondering, I installed Hayden 679 in my prev AWD Safari van and installed Hayden 678 in my wife's smaller size GM mini-VAN. re: http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-UpperSupport-2.jpg &http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-LowerSupport-1.jpg

As a suggestion, install the LPD aux cooler design (re: Tru-cool or Hayden 678 or 679) in your "running hot" GM van. These ATF coolers work great in my GM vans...

1999 Chevy Astro Van. Don't know exact model # of


You should have a 4l60E in your astro van. Which is electrically controlled, so no vacuum modulator. However, to address the ventilation selector not working... look for a vacuum line exiting the firewall and going to the passenger rear of the intake manifold. You will likely find it broken or disconnected there.
