My 1996 Toyota Avalon was making a knocking sound while driving on the freeway then stalled the engine will not come back on it just makes a clicking sound and the code reads p1705


That code relates to the transmission:
It's the sensor that sits directly on top of the transmission case.. Easy fix.
This sensor detects the rotation speed of the direct clutch drum.
By comparing the direct clutch speed signal with the vehicle
speed sensor signal, the ECM detects the shift timing of the
gears and appropriately controls the engine torque and hydraulic
pressure in response to various conditions, thus performing
smooth gear shifting.
DTC No. DTC Detecting Condition Trouble Area
P1705
The ECM detects conditions (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) continuity
for 4 secs. or more.
(2?trip detection logic)
(a) Vehicle speed : 32 km/h (20 mph) or more
(b) 3rd or 4th gear
(c) NC2 < 300 rpm
(d) Park/neutral position switch: OFF
(e) Solenoid valves and vehicle speed sensor are normal
(f) L position: OFF

It's not why your car won't start.

Why does my transmission shudder at a stop and why does it have trouble shifting up?


A waste of time flushing the transmission fluid, the fluid lasts for the life of the vehicle and beyond!
I suspect oil pressure issues if electronic or slipping clutches if mechanical.
Take it in for service.

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT with an automatic transmission. The mileage is 137,774. I have a very concerning issue with the AT and I'll try to describe the issue the best I can. The car shudders quite...


Your torque converter lock up is defective, it is not turning off. I would replace the torque converter lock up solenoid first and change the fluid and filter, if that is not the fix the transmission will need to come out for rebuilding and the torque converter replaced most likely..

Transmission will not shift out of first gear into second gear without letting off the gas petal.


Hm. On the 2001 Excursion transmission, there is this problem with shifting into second gear.

OK.

Transmissions have sensors in them that detect speed and pressure inside the bell housing.

If one of the speed sensors is not working you might experience a no shift or late shift situation.

Also, if the sensor is good, but the passage ways are clogged with clutch material due to normal wear and tear, the transmission will experience late shifts or even no shift situations.

Have you had the transmission flushed and filled with new transmission fluid, lately?

If you haven't spend the $100 or so to have this service performed.
It's not a cure all, but sometimes it can help and is cheaper than getting your entire transmission rebuilt or replaced.

I would start there.

Good luck to you.

try double clutching(come out of 3rd then push clutch twice b-4 going to 4th. if this works your clutch slave may be weak or pressure plate is worn. Try shifting from 1st-3rd if engine revs like your in neutral replace clutch. when going 1st-3rd engine should catch and cause vehicle to buck&stumble. (check level of clutch master cylinder)
