You'll need to read the error codes that turned on the check engine light. These do not tell you what is wrong always, but lead you to the area of difficulty. Many auto parts stores will read the codes for you (and sell you parts to "fix")... but be cautious. You can replace a lot of parts and still not fix the problem. I hope it is obvious and easy for you.

2005 honda rincon wont move


Check transmission fluid level. If it's ok need to have trans fluid pressure checked. Need schematic, but should be a port on the side of trans for this. If to in depth then take it to a repair shop. Could just have a clogged trans filter.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee - V6 engine with a Automatic 4-speed Transmission. Unit will not shift out of 1-2 speed into 3-4 gear. I have checked shift linkage - is OK & TV linkage OK. Is there a vacuum...


The only thing that you can do is check the trans fluid.Start car,run it through all gears and end in neutral.Handbrake on.Now check the trans fluid level.Make sure engine is warm.If needed add fluid.If this is not the problem,a tranny expert is the go.There is not a lot anyone can do with an auto trans at home.Hope this helps

Auto trans will shift some times and manual only


It may be just the vehicle speed sensor. Does the speedometer work OK? The vehicle speed sensor tells the computer how to control the shifting and it also sends a signal to the speedometer. Is the trany full of fluid, is it fairly clean? It should be red. Most vehicles, you check the fluid with the engine idling, in park.

Trans abrupt shift up & down between 1st & 2nd


Honda requires a highly friction modified fluid,or additive.Drain the fluid and replace with genuine Honda fluid.This should calm down the shifts a little.Fluid level is checked with the engine OFF.Also on your year Honda,there is a cable that runs from the accellerator linkage under the hood,down to the transmission.This cable is responsible for shift timing,and shift FEEL,and it is adjustable for these purposes.At the transmission are 2....12 mm nuts jammed against each other with a steel bracket in between.Loosen the nuts,and then the cable can be adjusted.For a softer shift feel,loosen the nuts,and take the end of the cable,and move it TOWARD the little arm (down) sticking out from the trans.This effectively makes the cable SHORTER resulting in softer shifts.For harder and later shifts,move the cable the opposite way,effectively making the cable LONGER.Beware though.adjusting the cable TOO much towards the softer side can cause the trans to start slipping and actually burn up clutch packs inside the trans,so some common sense is needed when adjusting the cable.Good luck,and remember to rate this solution.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

No reverse


Do you also have a check engine light on as well?
Go to an auto parts store like autozone where they'll plug it up to a scan tool for the trouble code for free.
How do the forward gears react?...shifts rough?...clunks through gears?...slips? (engine speeding up but forward travel isnt)

Start on level ground...engine cooled.
If low or missing trans. fluid...any leaks?
Check for trans. fluid in the radiator (not the recovery). The radiator is a cooling unit for the fluid and in some cases can rupture , pushing fluid into the radiator itself. Check especially up towards the radiator area where the trans. fluid lines go into the radiator.

Is the access door for the oil filter in place? It needs to be.(has to do with cooling, and area of greater/lesser air resistense)
How about the fluid...smell?...dirty?...gooey?

For trans fluid ,check trans fluid level with engine on, hot and running in park, on level ground.

You have a 4L60E M30 series transmission. Has certain components (valves-solenoids) in it that can keep transmissions from shifting properly should the fluid overheat or the pressure become too high/low.
The usual trouble code this displays is P1870.
Sometimes it is simply a TCC valve out of whack and can be replaced
