My transmission is clunking and grinding when I shift from park to reverse to drive


Does engage and drive normally? Because they only grind when you don't stop completely, gear grind. It is different to normal trans clutch plates engaging while you're riding on the brakes while shifting, they do make the 'clunk' - engaged - and then as you release the brake it grinds 'er er er er'.
So unless your trans doesn't drive normally, I'd say it's normal.

100 series landcruiser does not like goingin reverse, feels like at the brakes are on, the car is reluctant to go backwards


manual or stick shift?????, USA car, or not?
is the lever stuck or
the lever goes to reverse but car wont move in reverse.
2003 series 100 LC
it can be 2 things, the TCM is not commanding Reverse
or the tranny refused to go there
if A/T (automatic trans) why not, plug in any scan tool
and read all those tranny errors.
that is first after checking fuses

My 2001 Ford Ranger grinds in drive and 1st, and 2nd but nothing else and wont drive but will in reverse, what could cause this?


I'm guessing you have a automatic trans? if it is a 4x4 make sure you are in 2wd or 4x4 all the way if so you need a trans shop it won't be an easy fix

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

Have a 94 gmc 1500 4.3 automatic when i put it in drive it doesn't shift if i manuely shift from first to drive it will shift it doesn't have any slipping it also has overdrive that doesnt seem to work any...


Transmission does not shift automatically, only manually. Swap in a known-good PCM, check wiring, check other sensors such as VSS and TPS.

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line
, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmision is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the underhood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Good luck and get back to me, hope this helps.

Intermittent malfunction of reverse/forward motion of automatic T


probably internal ,especially if your car has done a lot of miles/klms,you may need to look further,double check fluid level,shift from rev to drive slowly but still think trans specialist needs to look....hate to say it

Corolla kicks/jolts when shifting gears.


I am trying to understand your problem. Check engine mounts. Have a driver in the car, hood open. Start car, foot on brakes, shift from park to reverse and back again. Shift through all gears, look for unusual engine movements around engine mounts area. Left foot on brakes, press gas in drive and reverse;watch for excessive engine movements. Be careful as you perform these steps. You may also want to check drive axles. Keep me updated.

Shifting lever doesnt lock


Likely the shift detent mechanism is broken. It's inside the unit and can be reached by removing the trans pan. It should be just inside where the shift lever goes through the case.
