This is likely due to the unit that sends the speed signal to the computer. Without this information the speedometer won't work and neither will the odometer/tripmeter. without the speed signal the computer has to use other information like engine speed to determine shift timing, but that is less accurate that ground speed and so it won't shift as smooth. I would start by checking the sensor located at the back of the trans on 2wd and in the transfer case in 4x4 models.

Hard shfit into reverse, and no light on gear indicator


I was about to say rebuild it

You need to stop using i say as a former
trans shop owner & hope the damage isn't
done already

You have solenoid issues every where
Delayed reverse
Torque Converter Chatter
Delayed Shifts

Hope the trans was built correctly
Now you need to diagnose the ENTIRE
cars systems,all of them

You have no real shift strategy at all

May be a sensor you don't see associated with
the trans

I can't guess,just spoke my mind

2002 Kia Optima runs great, transmission has started acting irradcally. it will shift and pull in gear for a short time after starting, but after a few minutes it fails to move the car. I've changed...


Keep driving it like that & it won't work at all

When ever you even think you have a transmission
issue,you immediately stop using the vehicle or you
end up rebuilding the trans,your call,your money & lots of it

Ask yourself ---Why would changing the fluid do anything?

Old oil out / New oil in ?

You change trans fluid because it breaks down from the heat
That is it's job,to remove heat or your trans fails

Trans & Power Steering get changed every 3 years & not
over 30,000 miles ever on ALL Vehicles

Speedometor not working and trans not shifting . any ideas? thanks


on the LH cars, 41TE is your trans regardles of engine, the rear output speed sensor has failed, left side of trans, towards the back, the one in front of trans is your input sensor, when the rear fails the trans goes to limp in mode, hence no shift and no speedo, easy to replace, best when everything is cooled down, about $50.00 for the part. You have to clear the mill light to. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
