Did you check the fluid level, if cant find in thehood, lift safely your car, because to measure your fluid is in the body side of the transmission, open the knot and the car must be level, once you open filling plug, if the fluid drips, the fluid level still fine but smell it, if smell like burn squid, drain and replace the fluid, and if still the same, needs to rebuilt your tranny or replace with a new one. Find your trusted mechanic and tell him what happen, ok.

I have a 94 isuzu rodeo v-6. 3.2 automatic. Trans . I replaced it with a 93 automatic trans. And it will not engage in any gears any thoughts to what it might be .?


is if full of Dexron VI now? TO THE COLD MARK?
and after startup, in park, it holds the cold mark?
then rises to the hot mark.>?
so the old trans was dead, so you bought another used, trans, that is 21 years old and expect it to work great? ok....
and did you drop the pan, and replace the filter?
the pump can suck Dexron VI through a packed filter.
and while the pans is do you have the shift soleniods here.
if yes your trans has a TCM and does all shifting,
but manual mode would work if, TCM is unplugged.

so if you manually move the side shift lever. to drive, Lo or reverse
the car will not move. im I right.? (false neutrals?) right?
why not say what it does.. not just (not engage) (creeps in gear?)
does the transmission act likes its in neutral? and RPM rises fast with right foot and car fails to move?
don't use the shift lever, use the transmission side lever. to prove the trans is failing
94 rodeo.... first i must look up what trans is there.
there are 2 types. (hyradmatic, and TCM electronic)
see? and many car makes have both types same year, yes,,, that makes for online help near impossible. lacking the side plate
numbers on the ORIGINAL trans..... a fact !!!

all answers are USA cars. (USA forum it is)
I will now quote the FSM (factory serv. man.) book facts for 1994
The 4L30-E transmission, the E means , electronically shifted.
needs a working TCM to shift all gears automatically.
tcm = transmission control module, (can be by self or part of PCM)

did you adjust the shifter like the book?
see bottom photo.
if reverse is dead, then the below is set wrong or trans is bad.
(or lacks proper fluid level or the filter is packed.)
the lever is held at N, with a rubber band
and the mech, adjusts the trans lever to N.
(standard steps on all a/T boxes)

this is the French GM trans in your car.
its electronically shifted. if not, its a true Hyrdamatic.

25722445-2f5dzn2kvqcmxgnp5h420nyp-5-3.jpggot those 3 solenoids. is the connector below , connected?


my best advice, get reverse to work first...
that is 100% hydramatic mode. (lever to R , at drivers hand and lever at trans in R detent !!!

How can I check if the oil in my autmatic gearbox is at the right level. Have changed as gearbox was beginning to slip in 4th to 5th gear


With car and trans fully warmed up (driving 15 min.) use the trans dipstick to check the fluid level with car running and trans in park, level ground.

What Gearbox should be in a 1991 BMW 525i E34


Hello,

The safest way for you to know which gearbox fits your car (second hand) you first have to go to a parts shop with your VIN and get the code and the model for your gearbox.

Don't just rely on car year and engine power.

Hope this helps

Ceck link between the lever and the gearbox axe.Usually u may have to open the hood and ceck over the gearbox.Some cars the link is located under the car,behind the gear box.They have a little nut/rod/screw that can be loose.You must identify the right position for the right shift and lock it again.Cheers.

I have 1990 accord lx 5speed that is stuck in 4th gear but the shifter moves in all gears..To get home I had to ride the clutch in 4th all the way home..Checked the links from shifter to trans everything...


Do you still feel the same feedback from gear lever when you change gear or it appear loose? It looks like a gearbox problem, maybe due to low gearbox oil something has broken inside the gearbox.

On an 1984 S10 speedometer hand jumps from 0-15mph then levels out. I changed the cable and it didnt help. Could it be the gear in the trans.


Its not the cable problem, its the little fiberglass/plastic gear in the gearbox where the cable goes in the gearbox, it becomes like an apple cord after much use. Take the cable off from the gearbox and pull the plastic gear out of the gearbox with a small hook and change it, you will be fine.

On a standard 94 corrolla, is tranny fluid used or gear fluid and how much?


Depends. If it is manual transmission, gear fluid; if it is automatic, then automatic trans fluid. I guess you are asking abot differential fluid, right? Auto trans fluid go into differential and AT gearbox. Gear oil go into manual transmission and differential.
