Look on the drivers side about half way up the side of the case on the transmission and you should see a fill plug. Noise you hear is likely worn synchros inside the unit though, I do recommend that you check that the clutch master cylinder and slave unit are working properly and that the system has no leaks. If the clutch is worn or the hydraulic release part isn't working correctly it also can cause the gears to grind.

Holden suburban column auto...car won't go into reverse and takes a while to change to 2nd gear...is it major


It might be.
You should first change the gearbox oil and replace the gearbox oil filter, then retry.
If you are still having an issue, then check the vehicle's speed sensor and TCM.

I think im missing 1st and or 2nd gear but it started happening out of the blue. Transmission has been excellent until this happened.


Check the following first:

1) Spark plug condition
2) Spark plug lead condition (replace if around 4-5 years old)
3) Condition of coil(s)
4) Condition of air filter.
5) Condition of fuel filter.
6) Gearbox oil level and colour (anything brownish in colour should be replaced)

Continuous metal knocking noise while driving in 2nd gear?


First thing to do is ensure all the transmission oil levels are correct. It is a good idea to draw a little oil into a sight glass to check the condition.

Check the condition and security of of the propshafts and universal joints and a thorough wheelfree inspection of the underside.

It is perhaps worth noting the gearbox rotates considerably faster than road speed. A road speed ticking is unlikely to be directly related to the gearbox.
The only things that do rotate at road or wheel speed are the wheels and things connected directly to them - brake rotors, drive shafts/half shafts, differentials...

2004 jeep grand cherokee engine management light on gear box won;t change up or down . had this problem a few times; just used to stop the car turn engine off @ back on car would drive ok, after a mile...


I had a similar issue on a grand cherokee '98 4.0L, and it was because the gearbox was overheating due to old oil and the fact that is was low on oil. Change gearbox oil and the filter inside the gearbox checked the two band tension and adjusted them and all was ok. the oil should be red or a dark pink. It would point more to this being the poblem if when it does change gear, the gear changes seam slow or slugish or change happens at higher engine revs. You may be able to get a fault code from ecu, by turning ign. to acc then on then off then on then off then on then off then off hen on again (code is displayed instead of odomitor reading as PXXXX or POXXXX). This could point you i one or more directions if oil seem to be correct.

I have a 95 jeep cherokee sport, 4.0 auto. And my car is stuck in forth gear and will not down shift, I have to do it manually through 1-4 gear. How do you fix this?


First check the oil level in your gearbox.
Refresh the oil if it's not clear and red tinted.

Give it a try. If it isn't fixed, you'll have to send the gearbox to a specialised revision company. You'll have an problem in the hydraulic valves of the gearbox, unsolvable if you haven't the right tools and testbench...

Our new Forester Diesel is ok But has no power at low revs when pulling away from standstil or moving slowly in 2nd and 3rd gears. Also main issue with this vehicle is the very slow and tractor like gear...


The forester diesel 6spd gear box is designed to replace the high low gear box so although starting off in second or third gear is possible .... puts a lot of strain on compents ie clutch/ gear box . very slow manuovering is much better carried out in 1st gear , as is moving from stationary . The engine torque is low dow the rev range high max idle is reached very quickly . The diesel engine characteristics are different to the petrol version ( I own 2.5 forester 2009 - 7.8l per km's @55000 km's). So you need to change your driving style to suit . I have test driven the 2.0l Diesel and sufficiently impressed to replace the 2009 version with the diesel .

Check the condition of the tranny oil on the dipstick. If it's black and smelly, the tranny clutches might be worn out. Make sure you have enough fluid in there first. Check the fluid with the car engine running and the tranny in park. The level should be between the 2 marks.
