Castrol Syntorq® LT 75w85w full synthetic gear oil is the only factory approved lubricant for NV4500 transmissions. ATF is for automatic transmissions and approved manual transmissions. Drain and flush with the correct oil as soon as possible or you will be rebuilding again soon. The ATF will just cause the transmission to wear out faster and shift oddly in all the gears, it shouldn't have affected only 4th. I'd take it apart again and see if you missed anything or if something else in the transmission is out of spec.

Chrysler ATF+4 (ATE) -- Introduced in 1998, ATF+4 is synthetic and replaces the previous ATF+3 fluid. Used primarily for 2000 and 2001 vehicles, it can also be used in earlier Chrysler transmissions (except 1999 and older minivans with 41TE/AE transmission). ATF+3 should continue to be used for 1999 and earlier minivans because of the potential for torque converter shudder during break in.
do u have a good speed sensor signal?

My pontiac was leaking tranny fluid bad. It stopped driving, still worked in reverse tho. I

you probably damaged something internally when you ran it out of fluid, unfortunately the only fix is to pull it out and rebuild it

02 Dodge Stratus for the 2.4 engine pO700 po733

P0700 is simply the ecm recognising that the tcm (tranny) has an error code stored/registered. The one to worry about is your p0733 code. This code means the tcm detected a gear ratio error in third gear. There's 5 main possible causes. Simple/cheap -> expensive/difficult. .. Low or dirty ATF. Add fluid if low or change fluid and filter If burnt smelling or dirty/discolored. Shifting solenoid . Check or have tested the shifting solenoids . They control fluid flow and transfer to various clutch packs for gears. Hydraulic control circuit and mechanical failure. Both of these require full rebuild. Control circuit is expensive and hard to get to . Mechanicalso is usually either a worn out/pourly adjusted clutch pack causing the gear to slip or a failing torque converter.

Transmission started slipping then lost all gears except reverse

Sounds like the gearbox needs rebuilding after refurbishing.

Transmisson keeps popping out of second gear

in the transmission itself there are clutches between the gears. (small rings) these are worn and needs to be replaced.

instead of buying a new transmission, It would be cheaper (i think) to purchase a transmission kit for your make and model transmission and replaces the parts. Its basically rebuilding the transmission so it will return to prime condition.. It does require a professional though , you should consult with your mechanic the cost of a new one and rebuilding this one.

I have an 89 Ford F150 that is stuck in fourth gear. How do i get it out of gear?

Have you checked the fluid level. It is a common problem on the M50D manual transmission to run out of fluid and seize the input shaft and the mainshaft together. This causes it to be stuck in 4th. If this has happened you will need to replace or rebuild the transmission.

What kind of gear oil goes in my 5sp 94 4x4 deisel 6.5 i know that the transfercase shares the same oil so whats the weight of the oil

Are you sure about gbox and xfer using same oil? I only know the NV4500 gbox and NV241 or BW4401 xfer setups. In both cases there is an oilseal on the xfer input shaft, which is known to fail, resulting in the gbox oil level dropping. This causes expensive damage. NV4500 uses ONLY!!! CASTROL SYNTORQ LT or GM12346190. Xfer uses ATF.

My 2001 ford ford focus seems to be stuck in 3rd gear.

This could be connected to your overdrive, or fourth gear. Most likely you could have broken a band which is located in the transmission, not very fun to take apart. but if your up to it rebuild kits come to 150$ to 200$ and the kit comes with the bands and clutches everything u need. Sorry best of luck

I have same problem with a 95 4runner 4wd 3VZE engine and A340 H tranny. I had previously had a real bad problem with all gears "neutralizing" where car would rev up but not move forward or rear in any gear. I spent $ 1,500.00 for transmission and transfer case rebuild, and problem not solved. After months of research, I found out there is a "valve body" which is a an electronic plate inside the transmission drain pan right above the transmission filter. These valve bodies have solenoids which act as mini pumps inside transmission. I ordered a kit through a San Antonio, TX independent distributor (# 1 solenoid, # 2 solenoid, and a so called "lock up solenoid". Kit comes with full details how to replace those three sensors. I did job myself one problem. 4runner works like new now except for the reverse which acts as you mention. There is a fourth solenoid in the transfer case (not transmission) whcih was not part of the "kit" I bought. Although I'm not sure it is the cause, after replacing the other solenoids, the fix was dramatic on the forward gears. I'm currently researching if solenoid # 4 may be the cause of the reverse gear still not working fine.
