1997 pontiac Sunfire will not shift into gear. I can shift it by hand with the lever on top of the transmission but it still will not move. Is there a vacum modulater on this model of car?


a vacum modulator does not prevent a car from shifting into gear. Usually when a car fails to move, internal parts of the transmission break and sometimes shatter prevent the clutch pack from functioning. The purpose of a vacum modulator is to allow the transmission to shift smoothly from one gear to the next, but now on allot of cars these days transmissions are solely controlled by the computer. If you transmission does have a vacum modulator then your will find a steel vacum line from the engine going to your transmission with short pieces of hose connecting the lines together.

it may be a bad transmission modulator valve located on the side of your transmission,vacum operated. a sudden downshift or forward shift when unexpected is sign of a bad modulator valve or a vacum leak to the transmission.best to shop around for a garage w/references when it comes to transmission work though. check all the vacum lines to your transmision,you need to look on the underneath side of your truck on the side of transmission for a loose or disconnected vacum line on the side of the transmission. when you feel the vacum line,follow it to the top of engine,the vacum line is about 3/8th line,and may be disconnected or losing air. to make this short,when you drive the car,start out in low gear and shift the transmission,manually from 1st to 2nd to 3rd does it do right with no slipping? if it does this right and shifts great manually,the modulator valve on the side of the transmissions bad,or a bad vacum leak in-between.thank you for choosing fixya.com

Transmission will get stuck in a gear and wont up shift to the next gear or it will constantly up shift and down shift


suggest you check for a vacum line off that goes to the transmission modulator valve, which controls the shifting in transmission.or may possibly just be a bad modulator valve on the side of the transmission. 1st check for a vacum line off, with engine running do you hear a whistling or air sucking sound on top or rear of motor? if so, follow that sound to a hose or small black hose thats off.if you are driving the car and start off in low drive and can manually shift to upper gears with no problems,your problem is either a vacum line off, or it's a bad modulator valve on the transmission. hope this helps!!!

My 88 blazer won't shift out of first gear until its up to 35 to 40 mpg, its a 700 auto. Any suggestions


Check all your vacume lines for leeks.If there are no leeks then may have a bad modulater.There will be one vacume line that goes down your fire wall to your trans.Where the vacume line plugs in,this is your modulater and controls your shifting.The part runs anywhere from $10-15 for a new one and most just screw into the trans or have a fork retainer with a single bolt.This only applies on gas motors.Well good luck and hope this helps.,

My 1994 probe auto trans when it changes into 3rd gear flares


First, Thank you for your service to our great nation.

Now have you spoken to the person that rebuilt the transmission, explain why you were not able to bring it back to him right away, ans see if he is willing to work with you.

If not then remove your filter check to see if there is anything that looks wrong. change the filter and replace the fluid with a good synthetic like royal purple. I hate to say this but with transmissions there is not a lot I can walk you threw, I don't even do any work on mine accept for the filter and fluid. Make sure your vacume lines going to the transmission are all in good condition, they have some control of when your transmission shifts, you could just have a bad vacume line.
