Your transmission is going into limp mode because of a fault. Get the tranny diagnosed.

My Escape 2001 V-6 Transmission Problem. i put into reverse nothing happens when i put it into drive nothing happens was working fine 5 days ago. Please any idea or tip how to fixed? or is like a sensor...


I got a new transmission and in a few months it did the same thing. On mine the transmission cable was not connected. If you know where the cable is....it only takes a couple seconds to plug it back in. When my transmission went completely out it would not go no matter what gear it was in , but when it become disconnected it would not go into any gear. The gear shift would not move.
Hope this helps!

Hello all, I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 5.3L with 133,000 miles on it. It starts up fine, I put it in drive, it doesn't move, put it in reverse, it backs up, put it back in drive and away we go. The rest...


trannsmission solienoids may be sticking, try some tranx, you can get at the parts store. this stuff is great. it might take a day or two but it works. for the other truck, did you have the front brakes checked, they can bind up, when you back up it frees them up.also, but not probable for 2001 check the brake hoses, they can collapse from the inside, not letting your brakes release all the way good luck

Where to put in the automatic transmission fluid


I own a 1994 BMW 540i with an automatic transmission. The filler hole/plug is located under the transmission oil pan. Picture in your mind an inverted cone with a hex plug inside the top of the cone. You will need to remove the plug and pump fluid into the pan until it overflows. Also, this must be done with the engine running and the transmission in neutral.

Do not try this unless to you have the proper equipment to raise your car, keep it level, and have four jackstands in addition to the special fluid and pump.
