I changed trans. Fluid on perfectly good tranny and lost 4th gear! What went wrong? 2000 suburban 4L 60

The only way your gonna loose just 4th is to break a sol. Or unplug a sol. You probably lost both 3rd and 4th though from low fluid or it was on its way out.

Kia Carnival 2000 model automatic gear drops from 4th gear to 3rd gear while running and N sign comes in the dash board

First thing to do is always check the fluid level and condition of fluid(burnt smell or brown?).
If fluid is okay, add the proper amount of SEA-FOAM TRANSMISSION Treatment. It won't take much to treat a small tranny. Follow directions on can. don-ohio (:^)

1999 mitsubishi eclipse automatic transmission wont shift into 4th gear.

First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..

If not.. Check ALL your fuses..

If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..

If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..

1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)

2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..

Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..

Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..

1992 ford 4 x 4 6 cly tranny stuck in 4th ,,,,,,,help

If it is standard, could be a bad clutch or clutch cylinder, sounds like a bad slave cylinder on the clutch. Check the clutch fluid level. Should be near the brake fluid and should be the same fluid as well.

I suddenly lost 4th gear and reverse, what would cause that, i dont believe i am low on tranny fluid(gear oil) but im not sure, but, i was told that there is an adjustment on the shift linkage, but that is...

Its a sylinoid and that is located inside tranny pan. Or its bent linkage. Only way to know for sure is go in and see. Does your car have a anallisus hook up? If so then the code will tell you where the problem is. Hook er up and find out first, tranny work aint cheep. I just put one in the other day. Boss charged 2800 for the job. Good Luck.

Sounds like you have a defectine cluthch componant. Best way to verify is get the rear axle off the ground . So as not to let the rear drive wheels make contact with the ground. Have an assistant start the truck and put it in gear. After making sure the vehicle is secure crawl under the vehicle and listen to comfirm that the noise is coming from the clutch area.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?

YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.

My 2000 concorde runs great when cold then tranny slips when hot. . . . . ?

Fluid level ok? Check it when hot and car running.

Have you had the tranny serviced recently?

This type of tranny uses the Dextron +4 fluid, any other fluid would mess up the transmission.

I have a 1999 Intrepid, no problem w tranny, but a month ago I put an aditive that a friend recomended. After only about 5 miles I felt the car more responsive and with more power. I also think my gas mileage improved.

I got it at AutoZone the brand is RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair
it says works with all types of fluids.

I hope this will help. Good luck
