1988 chevy 4x4 k1500 auto tranny wont shift into 2nd, 3rd etc


Check the sensors on the transmission. May just be corrosion on the sensors or it may be a faulty sensor. Also, the torque converter bearing may have went bad due to the running it on low transmission fluid.

I have a p1870 error code what do i need to replace to fix it


Your Trans is definately slipping even though it doesn't seem like it. If this just started, DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT!!!! drive the car in this state, even with the SES light off it's still happening. You WILL have to get a rebiuld if you continue to drive it like this. Here's the deal of EXACTLY whats happening.... and no, an auxillary cooler won't remedy this problem.

(BEFORE SES LIGHT)

#1 - Valvebody gets stuck closed, insufficient tranny fluid to cool transmission.
#2 - Trannsmission gets HOT due to insufficient fluid, and begins to slip (explains lack of accelleration power)
#3 - Computer detects slip after about an half hour of highway speeds and engages the FAILSAFE which applies MAXIMUM LINE PREASURE to push the fluid to the transmission although this does not work due to stuck valve.... MAX LINE PREASURE is actually what causes your harsh 1st-2nd gear shift... before this it SEEMS to run perfectly fine although it's not...
#4 - The First it detects it in a running cycle, the computer just activates the FAILSAFE with harsh shifting WITHOUT the SES light... however the SECOND time it detects it in the next running cycle...then...

(SES)

#5...You get an SES light with the code P1870 (Transmission Component Slipping or 4X4 Transfer box)... PLUS FAILSAFE mode which activates harsh 1st-2nd gear shifting...
#6 ...You turn car off, turn car back on and everythings running fine??? Nope, problems still there, you just resetted your computer which deactivates FAILSAFE mode until it detects another slip....

You will COOK your transmission if you continue to drive it like this... Trust me I have a 97 V6 with an A4 (Same tranny) and had to get it rebiult because it got so hot in there it fried all the shift solenoids, Ironically I just got it out today. The Sonnax Kit listed above is the common remedy to this issue... After the kit's installed the problem will never happen again...

I have a 2003 chevy cavalier and it seems to shift


the transmition is electronic and needs to know some info on how the engine is running
it gets this info from a number of sensorm
rpm, air temp, coolant temp, throttle position.
those inputs need to be checked

95 dodge dakota having hard time shifting.


Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.

1st and 2nd gear went out


Check your shifting forks, they are probably worn out

Transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly


Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!
