    Thanks Halhbec,
    Sounds like I should first change the fluid as this was done with uncertain fluid (they were not sure matches the car maker requirements).
    Already ordered the solenoid on internet. Was goind to do this next. But this does not appear on your list of recommendation.
    Agree this is where I should start ?
    If does not work, Local dealer not familiar with this model. Will have to find another one, as they usually send the Chrysler car elsewhere if complicated.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to go to a transmission shop. If it is the transmission fluid you are speaking of when you refer to the oil, (the fluid should be fine if it was changed only 4 months ago.) Provided you used the proper fluid and filled to the proper level. The problem could be one of several things, the torque converter, the valve body, or the fluid pump would be the most likely causes of the problem described. You could remove the tranny yourself and take it to a tranny shop and save some money, but it is a chore on your car. If they determiine the problem is with the valve body, they may be able to do a valve body flush and correct it, That would be a best case senerio. Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

    The selenoid does control shifts, however the symptoms you describe are not typical, consistant with a selenoid problem...simply because you can restart and drive. Since you have ordered the selenoid, go ahead and try that to eliminate that from the list. Hopefully it will work, my gut says no, but I hope it does. Good luck.

What happened? My Car will not drive forward or reverse, front wheels are now locked, can't even push it.

This is a transmission related issue. If the vehicle starts but will not go in any gear you have an intrernal tranny problem. Will it move at all in neutral? Check and see if the trans fluid is at the proper level. I believe these transmissions are just drain and fill ( no filter change ) during fluid service. If the fluid level is correct and a good color, the internal differential may have come apart causing the lock up situation. If the fluid level is low ( suspect a leak especially after a service ) and low fluid will cause a no shift/drive issue

1995 Grand Cherokee 4.0 Transmission..

I think your best bet would be to take it in and have it serviced . They will change fluid , filter and adjust the bands . That might be all it needs.

Why would my oil light be coming on and beeping even though I have a full oil reservoir?

if oil level is ok, your oil PRESSURE is dangerously low.
Either the wrong oil was used, or your oil pump is going bad.

Ill bet on wrong oil since you just had it changed,

1984 AMC Eagle automatic transmission not fully engaging. slipping no transmission fluids leaking. New fly wheel 2 months ago.

It sounds on that older vehicle that maybe the clutches have finally worn just about out.. there may be a shift solenoid on the side that maybe can be cleaned a bit.. but my guess is it about worn out, you didnt mention mileage so I am just going by the fact that it has been around 26 or more years.... good luck...

The oil light comes on when the van is in idle, but not all the time mostly after driving awhile. All the fluid levels are ok. The oil & filter was just changed a couple months ago.

Replace the oil pressure sender and the problem should be solved . Fortunately , the senders tend to go out more frequently than the oil pump. If you change oil pressure sender and the light keeps coming on , you may have to consider replacing the oil pump in the motor or risk getting stranded some where with a blown motor.

I have a 2002 honda accord sedan lx. the transmission is not doing right, and i noticed i dont have to push the button to change from drive 4 to drive 3. also i had a transmission flush 2 months ago...

Shifter in my 99 Honda goes from D4 to D3 without pushing button also. I 'NEVER' recommend flushing transmissions, it will always cause problems. I've been rebuilding transmissions for 25 years now, flushing causes all the buit-up contaminates to stop up the filter, which cannor be changed on Hondas. I have to admit though I get 'ALOT' of work since the introduction of flushing machines. Good luck.

1993 w/rebuilt tranny wont go into 3rd.Just bought.

So it shifts from 1st to 2nd but that is it? 3/4 clutch burned out. Check the transfer case level. If you remove the fill plug and oil pours out, the transfer case input seal is bad, the transmission oil drained back into the transfer case leaving the transmission oil level low, and then it burns out the 3/4 clutch pack. I have seen oodles of these at my shop. Very common. Someone may have added fluid to the transmission to "doctor" the problem which won't work anyway

Change Automatic Transmission oil

Honda's are drain and refill only.The filter is internal inside the transmission and can only be accessed during an overhaul.On the bottom of the transmission case is a drain plug that is gold in color.It is removed using a 3/8" ratchet,or extension with a ratchet atached.There is also an aluminum washer that must be kept track of and reinstalled with the drain plug or a leak will occur.After draining the trans,and reinstalling the drain plug,Honda genuine automatic transmission fluid,or an equivalent with a highly fricition modified additive must be used,or harsh shifting can occur.I would install about 3 quarts after draining,and start checking the level at this point.The fluid level is checked with the engine OFF,on level ground.
