It will not shift out of first gear. Service engine soon light is on. Reverse works fine and so does first gear, just will not shift after moving.


Hi!

The Service Engine light need to be check for codes, Because i think you have a shifting problem that might be coming from the shift solenoid. And I would check the transmission fluid level first to see because this can also cause shifting problems due to low fluid and lack of pressure. And for the Service engine light, I think you can go to any autoparts store near you and ask them to scan it for you, Its free. Good luck

I have a 2005 VW TDI I bought used. No manuel of course. It looks like an engine light on it.Transmissission acts kind of funny as well. Where can I get a book


Try www.RossTech.com for WIS service CD or paper manuals. Bentley Books also supplies same.

Hard shifting is common if the transmission or engine ECU has logged a fault code or the solenoid pack or loom in the transmission is faulty.

You could try turning ignition to RUN without starting engine, then hold throttle pedal to the floor for 10 seconds and then turn ignition off...next turn ignition on to RUN without engine running and wait 35 seconds...turn ignition off and wait 30 seconds and restart. test drive to see if relearn has improved the shifts.

This procedure resets the ECU's to factory settings on many VW vehicles.

Why does my traction off light come on?


You either have a problem with your engine control system, the traction control system, or you are not in the correct gear. See the explaination below. This is from the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner's Manual.

TRAC-OFF LIGHT

... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever

to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), the warning light will

come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,

move the shift lever back to a position other than

FIRST (1) or SECOND (2). The warning light

should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"

in the Index for more information.)

 The warning light will come on when you set your

parking brake with the engine running, and it will

stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.

If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other

than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning

light stays on after your parking brake is fully

released, it means there's a problem with the system.

 If the traction control system is affected by an

engine-related problem, the system will turn off

and the warning light will come on.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes

on and stays on for an extended period of time when the

transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST
(1) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.

Had trouble shifting from first to second, would shift if i let off accelerator, service engine light was on, replaced neutral safety switch, service engine light went away, but still having trouble...


Not sure what model you have, but if there is a vacuum line going to the tranny make sure it isn't leaking. That is the usual cause of late shifting. If the tranny has a vacuum modulator valve, consider replacing.

2004 maxima - transmission stuck w/engine shut off


It sounds like a tork conveter lockup switch, have the transmisson serviced oil and filter changed then and add Lucas transmisson treatment to help smooth out hte shifting pattern and stop the problem if there was drag on the clutches it may have stalled out.

Transmission and Service Engine Soon light


it might be your vehicle speed sensor. It affects your speedometer, your cruise control and your trans shift points. Also, your throttle position sensor (TPS) affects shift points.

When the engine gets warm the transmission doesn't shift properly


have u had the trans serviced every 60,000 miles? this would be a fluid and filter change. Dirty trans fluid can cause these kinds of problems, it can also be caused by a sticky shift solenoid (transmission is electronically controlled), do u have a check engine light or ay trouble code's? go to Kragen or Autozone and ask then to run a trouble code test, it's free, record any codes and post them back here.

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.
