Most likely your shift cable (from the selector to the transmission) is worn, maybe needs lubrication. Mine had a similiar problem, but had to shift it into neutral and back up to get it in reverse. A new shift cable solved the problem.

Its an 01 grand caravan sport sometimes speedometer needle moves to 10mph when put into drive and the van is not moving when this happens trans wont shift out of second or third and when it doesn't do it...


Problem is either in the speed sensor and/or instrument cluster. My '01 suffered same issues before it other issues killed it. But, when you do go to shift into gear hold brake and allow it to "swing" until it settles down. This will help with it trying to shift thru the gears and the "hurky jerky".

95' Mercury Sable 3.0w/overdrive auto trans when car reaches operating temp trans will shift fine until it shifts for third or o/d then completely disengages will not reengage until car slows and down...


Sounds like a shift solenoid problem. If you have any codes associated with solenoid failure, that is probably what it is. If there are no codes, it is probably something stuck in the valve body or something else mechanical.

'93 corolla,4 spd.auto trans.speedometer reads10 mph slow and the transmission shifts real fast.Its in third gear bythe time u hit 30 mph. Also wont downshift at this point either.


well what you want to do is change the trans control solenoid or the trans modulator.i know this car has a trans modulator but im not sure that it has a trans solenoid.either way it's a lot cheaper than changing the trans.hope this info helps. take care and good luck, manny

I have a playmouth grand voyager 1999 3L,my transmission will not shift up in gear.On drive or reverse it goes well but will not shift.I think it could be an electrique problem,cause the transmission looks...


Your trans is stuck in safe mode, you are only using 2nd gear, this means it is not shifting but staying at a gear so you will not damage the trans. This is an electrical setting , however usually comes from the computer receiving bad information , rough shift, however it can be reset. Remove the positive battery cable for 30 minutes then see if it shifts, also check your fluid level, it can go into safe mode from low fluid if you made a turn and the trans slipped from low fluid . If your trans goes back into safe mode again have it checked, most important, do not drive over 45 mph or allow your rpms to raise over 3 , I have seen many motor problems that spawned from this type of trans problem, if not corrected.

Good Luck

E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2


check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
