Question about 1993 Chrysler Imperial

1 Answer

Our car does not shift up from 2nd gear. We had a power flush done on our transmission but that did not fix the problem. We were told to check our shifting module... is this a possibility? The car has been running very smoothly and shifting very smoothly until a few days ago.

The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.


is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

Auto transmission will not shift into 2nd gear


A problem a lot of drivers experience is their cars won't shift from first to second gear. That could lead to number of different problems, overheating being one of them. If you think there is a problem with your transmission then the first thing you should always do is check your transmission fluid levels.

This solves a lot of transmission problems but if you still can't shift then you may need to look at your throttle cables. A faulty throttle cable that has too much slack can prevent proper shifting, or shifting at all for that matter.

Shift module


That transmission is one that has been used for years in Dodge and Plymouth vans. Do you know when the last time was that the fluid was flushed out and replaced? It's pretty important that it be done every 90K miles.......have it checked out.

Wont shift into third gear and also sometimes hesitates when I accelerate (as if it was being flooded).


hi, My first thought on this is that you may have a linkage issue. your shifter may read that you are in drive, but you may only be in 2nd gear. Check it out. bump it up so it will look like you are putting the car into nutral, but be careful to not go too far and put it in reverse. if that is not the issue, I would suggest that your car has a brain that knows that the transmition has a problem with 3rd gear and simply wont let it shift into 3rd because maybe there is no 3rd. like the band could be broken. post your results if ya dont mind. I am interested to hear more. I hope this helps ya. Tim

2002 Durango transmission sluggish when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was told that the Transmission needs flushed and new Fluid added


Usually if the trans is acting up new fluid isn't going to change a thing, that's usually a ploy to get you to spend some money, just what I have seen.. Q: does the trans act up more or less when hot or cold, if there is a difference with temp then changing the fluid isn't going to help you, but that's my opinion, I been a dodge tech for 17 years but anything is possible with cars......

Seems like it takes too long to shift into 2nd and when it does it slams into gear and third gear also


1.Check your transmission fluid to ensure its got enough in it,remember if the transmission fluid is low it will cause the transmission to shift hard.
2.Check how dark the transmission fluid is, if its black then you need to have your transmission flushed,if that is the case you will want to go to a garage to have it done.
3.When driving, and it feels like it needs to shift release your foot off the gas for a moment to allow shifting.
4.If your still having the issue with the transmission you will need to get a new one. Good Luck

I have a 1993 f-250 u have to manually shift to 1st to take off shift to 2nd and still in 1st gear. Shift to overdrive and transmission will shift through 2nd 3rd 4th and then to overdrive with no problem....


When was last trans fluid & filter change? Should be done every 30k/3 years or sooner of you do any towing. I'd start there and get it flushed thoroughly.

Transmission will not shift into high gear


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST. This guide is meant for problems that do not show up as PCM codes (like shift A&B solenoid failures, for example).
Also note that many problems that show up as transmission issues are actually PCM or electrical, and may be external to the transmission. Try a different PCM, and check for chafing where the cables come out of the PCM.
What is "limp-home mode" ? This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.
No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.
Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmision is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the underhood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck. Check all your fuses first to ensure it's not a simple as that before you take it to a transmission shop. Call around, most transmission shop will scan free of charge to inspect the condition of your transmission.

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?


do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.

My transmission wont shift from 2nd to 3rd gear


did you drop the pan replace the filter and add four to five quarts,If still a problem try doing a full transmission flush at a quick lube.
A transmission flush with Lucas trans tune up will probably fix your non shift issue, try this first before looking into a new tranny !
