My auto trans makes a thud when shifting out of low gear and when shifting from park to reverse or drive. Is this a major problem or a minor one which can be fixed without taking the transmission apart? John res1pm14@hawaiiantel.net 1995 Buick Regal, Auto trans. 57,000 miles. V6.

This problem is called slippage. It can be caused by old/burned transmission fluid or something much more serious.

If you are lucky, simply changing the fluid in your transmission will do the trick. Any autoparts store will have a kit that allows you to change your fluid through the dipstick if your transmission isn't equipped with a drain plug (many aren't).

If this doesn't work, then you will have to take your car to a transmission specialist.

I hope this helps.

Turbo 400 transmission is making a loud metal to metal noise when shifting from drive to reverse or park to reverse.


could be internal piston housing failure for the bands
pull the pan and see what metal is in the pan
there is an aluminium housing that breaks away from the transmission body proper and is replaceable

Izuzu rodeo drives forward on reverse gear


redux. (A/T trans answer not STICK SHIFTED manuals)
no years stated
no transmission stated, auto or stick.

stuck in Reverse.
linkage checks are first.

the trans has lever on the side
called the Manual valve.
it that lever does not go to DRIVE,
then there will be no drive.
there is a cable from the Shift selector to that
transmission side lever.

inspect these parts for proper movement
no damage, not slipping cable, etc.
only you can do that.
or your mechanic.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

I have a 98 land rovor will not go in to gear ?


it won\'t go into gear as in the shifter does not come out of "park"? or vehicle will not move when placed in "reverse" or "drive"? if its not coming out of "park" you may either have a faulty brake switch or shifter lock solenoid is stuck. on certain european automobiles i have come across the shifter stays locked because the internal solenoid in the shifter assembly has gone bad and the entire shifter ass\'y would need to be replaced. this is the worst case scenario. majority of the time its a bad brake light switch not sending the signal to the shift interlock to release the solenoid within the shifter.

now if your vehicle is failing to move while in "reverse" or "drive" you have some sort of internal failure with the trans. it can be something as simple as a shift solenoid or major such as broken planetary gear.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

My 1991 sonoma 2wd auto will only has low gear and reverse. Trans fluid looks ok. What could the problem be.


You broke the low one way clutch. The trans will need rebuilt. The truck should be drivable if you take off in Man 1, shift to Man 2 at about 12mph, then shift to drive at about 27, then shift into overdrive at about 42.

The shifter is moving from Drive to Neutral and make grinding or creaking noise while I'm driving. Some times wen the jeep is park and I shift to reverse does the same noise. Fluids are ok but the tranfer...


Though you did not say, I'm going to assume it's a stick shift.
Shifter popping out of gear nearly always indicated an internal transmission problem (likely worn synchros) Either way, trans needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Transfer case is supposed to be filled with good grade auto transmission fluid, though some people opt for gear oil (but it gets really thick in cold weather). You may aslo have a t-case problem if you ran it low, but it is not related to shifter problem!

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive


As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
