Check the level of fluid... most gearboxes take a second to gain oil pressure so if there is low oil because of a leak etc... it may cause a few gears to not select imediately after starting

94 Toyota 4runner with shifter in park it seems like in gear but will not move


Remove trans pan and check your manual valve it may be broken, or linkage problem, if no problem found then you will need to take a pressure reading but that may be out of your capabilities, have a shop check your trans and give you a diagnostic.

02 jeep 42re trans no drive only has reverse after checked sensors and solenoid A friend of a friend rebuilT it new torque converter filter and fluid and still only reverse after everything replaced


find a friend of a friend of a friend , next time.
LOL
if all forward gears are dead, and the manual lever works.
the trans is bad.
try with TCM unplugged to trans.
and all forward gears dead,
with no TCM , 1st gear must work, it must move.
unplugging it , prevents any TCM wrong doing.
and only the internal manual valve now works,
does it?

1995 Fleetwood will not move in reverse


You don't say how many miles its done but there is a clutch within the trans for reverse. If other contributors don't say to look at something electrical this may be the problem. Is the trans fluid level correct? If it is then a trans shop could test the box. Sometimes the trans pan can be removed, an adjustment made to the clutches and refilled. A good trans shop or a knowledgeable DIY neighbour plus a manual to look at may help.

Automatic transmission


If your Vehicle will not move in reverse until you you reverse it up sound as thought your reverse pump in your trans has gone or getting ready to go out . It call worn out . So you will have to change the trans out for R&R trans it will run about $2000.00

If it happens in all gears then the out put shaft is worn. If it only happens in reverse then find out from your cousin where he had it repaired from .It might be still under warranty. If not take it to a tranny repair shop sounds like oil pump in converter may be weak 0r reverse gear or its idler is worn.

Only runs in 1st and 2nd gear and reverse.


This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

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: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood 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.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

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.

Chrysler concorde car wont shift from reverse to park


it sounds like your gearshift cable is broken..if you can jack up vehicle and support it safely,get someone to move shifter and look on driver's side of transmission and see if linkage is moving on trans..linkage is up near top of trans..i have seen this problem before

Wont shift out of reverse,but the shifter moves up and down freel


your linkage on the transmission must be off. try having someone move the shifter while you watch the linkage arms under the car on the trans to make sure its all intact. it could be a loose or broken bolt on the trans causing it to not disengage from reverse this will cause it to not start.
