SOURCE: 1986 corvette 700R4 transmission will

Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.

SOURCE: transmission does not always shift into overdrive

Governor pressure sensor or solenoid is going bad. To replace them drop the tranny pan, remove the filter , and the parts are pretty ez to get to. These aren't cheep thou, but replace them as a set. Parts will probly run about $200.

SOURCE: 2001 mazda protege will not start

well, with all that you have changed the only two possible things that are left PCM and the ECM....

Do you have an alarm system on this vehicle? If you purchased this car second hand it may have something that is inhibiting the engine from firing. From what you have told us here that would be where I would start looking.

I really hope this is helpfull

SOURCE: 1995 jeep laredo overdrive is not shifting

Your overdrive should kick in at about 45mph, pretty much at or about 2000rpm. To see if it engaged, lightly touch the brake pedal and it will disengage.It should also disengage when you mash the pedal down to go into passing gear, and re-engage when conditions "normalize" again. You can tell that it has engaged because the tach will drop a few hundred rpms. If it's not doing this, a simple trans oil change (with filter) may correct the problem. OD is activated by a shift solenoid on the valve body that may be a bit gummed up.
95's show a shift control module on some diagrams I've seen, but not on others. I read this as a possible "half-year change" So you may or not have one. If you do, I'd check that as well!

Car looses power, bogs down check engine flashes rapidly. No acceleration, then 15 - 30 seconds later power comes back and check engine light goes solid and stays on for 2 or 3 days.Anyone with idea?


You should read check engine code.
It tells you more than you can guess.
You can buy quality $1000 snap-on OBD scanner or $30 cheap one.
$30 will do good job. (you need to google after car tells you error code because cheap scanner shows only code but not meanings in plain English)

or you can visit local autozone and ask them read code for free.
unless you ask car itself, nobody will be accurate.

I have 2001 mazda protege with a 1.6 and its been sitting for 3years and when i went to drive it i noticed the O/D light and the engine light was on so i changed the transmission fluid. Then when i went...


well the o/d light should just mean that your overdrive button is pressed on the shifter, so try taking off and put gas and maybe fuel injector cleaner and then see what happens

2001 mazda protege dx 5 spd dies, brakes are seized up?


It seems that one of the pulleys is bent, or you are using the wrong timing belt. I would suggest changing them. That would probably explain why the timing belt keeps breaking. The braking problem can be related, or you simply have a leak somewhere in the system and should try bleeding the brakes after thorough inspection.

Overdrive light flashing


There is an overdrive sensor located inside the transmission, you can goto any local garage and have it replaced fairly cheap or DIY by dropping the transmission pan and the sensor is located in plain sight, also the sensor is around 15-30$ through a parts store.
