Question about 1989 Nissan Stanza

Open Question

Slips out of 3rd gear

I can't go past 25-30 miles per hour because it slips when it goes into 3rd gear. I checked and saw no metal shaving in transmission fluid and level is correct. Hoping I won't have to buy a new trans.

I suggest this is the Vechicle Revolution Sensor is causing the problem.

Run Diagnostic on the Transmission and review error codes.

An error (1) Code would confirm this.

If no error code exists then the problem is the band needs tightening. The gear to slip is always 2nd gear in this vechicle first then other latter as the problem becomes worse. There is only one band in the transmission and it is fairly simply procedure to complete but you need 1-10nm Torque wrench and to remove the valve body to get access. Don't attempt if you don't have good mechanical skill or have exp. on motorbike or other auto transmissions.

SOURCE: check automatic transmission fluid level

Dipstick is to the left of the engine. Should be a small yellow dipstick. Add fluid through the dipstick hole. The vehicle should be running when you do this. It is best to have driven at least 20 miles before adding trans fluid so everything has had time to get hot.

Why when i put in drive and go it goes into 1 or2 or drive by it self while driving


It always starts out in first, it's a 3 speed automatic, that's what automatics do. they start out in first and at about 15-20 miles per hour , they shift to second gear, and when the speed is about 35-45 MPH, the transmission automatically shifts into third gear, or Drive.

Bigger automatics have 4 or more speeds. Till recently, 4 speeds were the norm, and fourth gear was often dubbed Overdrive, as it allowed the engine to run slower in 4th gear, than it had to maintain speed in 3rd gear, drive. It's good, it increases your mileage per gallon of gas, so you save that way, but like all things more complicated, they cost more to fix when something goes wrong.

My 2002 gmc envoy goes through all the gears except slips in third


Its the overdrive sensor 3rd gear you will slip with 4speed band trans
This overdrive gear setting if your sensor is not kicking in then you are due for trans maintenance as 3rd gear is shredding slowly away learned this from dirt track quarter mile super stock racing pray that your gear is intact as a trans shop with micro snake cam can only determine the length of time you have on your gears and trans inspections are free threw amco certified shops

I belive the speed sensor broke because runs fine on the 1st gear and 2nd gear are fine when is time for 3rt it change to 3rt but rpm goes up and reject it and goes back to 2nd pretty much i can go...


take all wheels off the ground use jack stand,start engine up and put car in drive and let it run for about 5 mins, with wheel off the ground it should shift gears better, if it do you to change your transmission filter and oil, VERY IMPORTANT TO CHANGE OIL WHILE IT IS HOT! check oil to make sure no metal is in oil or heavy shavings, if shavings or metal is present you need new tranny,measure the amount of oil you take out put same amount back in, i really dont think you got a speed sensor problem you might have too much milage on your yukon, hay mon sure you service your yukon on time or else ford will excort you home, good luck mon and big up u self

1994 Ford Escort jerks into 2nd gear.


Make sure you're replacing your transmission oil about every 30,000 miles, or as directed in your owners manual service section.
If your gears are slipping, it could be as simple as low fluid or old fluid no longer providing the correct lubrication between your gears.
The issue could also be that your gears have worn down and the metal parts aren't fitting together correctly anymore. This will cause a jump in gear shifting and can only be remedied by rebuilding the shaved down gears in the transmission. Typically, this issue can be identified by pulling out your transmission dipstick and inspecting for evidence of small metal shavings in the fluid.

Good luck!

1998 dodge durango 4x4 automatic transmission,found part in pan


It is the band strut for the kickdown band. The band is worn out and got too loose and the strut fell out. You can put it back and see how it works but you will need to remove the valve body to get it back in. It is for 2nd gear. Does the transmission hold 1st up to about 25 miles per hour and then shift right to 3rd.

Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.
