SOURCE: 1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift into overdrive.

4th gear failure is a common problem with this transmission, assuming it is an automatic. You should have the vehicle checked for codes by a qualified repair center with the proper scan tool. Also, check fluid level and condition. More often than not, the trans loses 3rd and 4th gear, as these are working off the same set of clutches. 3-4 clutches apply in 3rd, and when the 4th shift is made the 2-4 band applies giving you overdrive. If you have no engine braking in manual 3rd, you definitely have a mechanical failure, no 4th could be an electrical, or mechanical fault.

SOURCE: terrano gearbox keeps jumping out of overdrive and

Nissan Terrano's have an Electronic Computer that controls the gearbox. It is hidden behind the left hand rear Speaker box, right hard up against the rear seat back rest. This system controls all functions regarding the gearbox and it's rev rates. If your vehicle is shifting back on long drives then it is possible that the computer sees any slight increase in revs as a desire to "Kickback" the gearbox to a lower gearing, hence it dropping out of overdrive. Unfortunately a gearbox specialist with a computer "Plug-in" is needed to fix this, but it is fixable. This problem should not be too expensive in comparison with a new gearbox.

2000 gmc jimmy will not go into overdrive?


This is usually a transmission problem (probably the torque converter lock solenoid not engaging, and there can be a number of reasons for this). A transmission shop can sort this out.

The Jimmy surges when it gets into overdrive like it is going from 4th to overdrive again and again. Could this be the torque converter?


yes it could be, try driving in 3rd gear and see if it still does it.
tcc still works in 3rd.
when was last full tuneup?

I own a 1992 gmc jimmy and I was wondering if the clutch sensor has anything to do with starting. Sometimes when I start it, it takes a few times before it starts. Am not pushing the clutch far enough down...


Yes, there is a clutch switch which must be activated (closes switch) for the starter to engage. This is a safety item so the truck won't start in gear. With time it may begin to fail, this should be any easy fix. And yes from time to time you may not be pushing the clutch in far enough to actuate this switch.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
