    Modern cars are very hard on the automatic transmission fluid. When is the last time you changed it? Did you use the correct type of fluid?

My moms 2002 Oldsmobile Alero is stuck in gear. The car turns over, the break lights come on but the car wont move?


I'll assume this is an auto trans car. When you shift the gear selector does it feel as if it is working normally? Did this happen all of a sudden or gradually get worse?

57 plate sorento seems to have a gearbox or axle fault. In 2nd 3rd and 4th it feels like there is a tooth missing it feels like going over a drain in the wet gets worse when towing any ideas.


Does it change frequency when in different gears?
If you're going the same speed, does it happen at the same timing regardless of what gear you are in?
Does it happen with every revolution of the tires, or at some other rate? Every revolution of the tires would point to a CV joint or the differential.

2004 dodge neon sxt manual transaxle. When shfting through gears 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 it seems like rpms are staying high and i cant feel a differance when i shift. Its hard to put in words.


I would look at the shift linkage to see if its binding or not moving properly. also the boot around the shifter can get pinched preventing the linkage from aligning properly.
there are 2 cables that run to the transaxle and they can stretch or wear out. Maybe have someone shift (engine off) and you can watch in the linkage move in the engine bay to see if anyting looks sloppy. if so you may need new cables but before that get a mechanic to verify that they are not moving right.

2004 Camry lurches forward when stopping.


Sounds like the torque converter isn't unlocking quick enough. Drive at 45mph,keep foot on gas and use other foot to touch the brake and watch the tach to see if it speeds up,when converter releases. Check trans fluid level hot.If it is more than a couple years old,change. Use the correct fluid for Toyota and add a bottle of Lubgard. Have the throttle positon senor scanned and check any idle control circuits. Throttle Body may need cleaning.

Engine will rev. No drop in speed, no increase in


likely what you are seeing is the first signs of slipping. If permitted to continue, likely it will get worse and you will then lose a bit of speed when it happens. In warmer weather the trans runs a bit hotter and will react to that. If you cannot hear the revs increasing but the tach says they are, it's also possible that for some reason the tach isn't reading correctly. Any good tech should be able to tell the difference. Problem I have is that I'm here and can't drive it to give you a "definite" on either.The only way to verify this yourself would be to attach an external tach to the engine and compare the rpms of the one in your dash to that one.

Could my transmission be slipping


Quick check is to accellerate from a stop with steady even pressure on the gas. Watch the tach. It should have a good shift at approximately 2000 rpm and the tach should not jump higher during the actual shift (called flairing) This should be the same for each shift. Converter lockup (4th gear shift) should cause tach to drop about 500rpm and should happen at about 45mph. Then repeat the same process using a more agressive acceleration.
Shift points in rpms may be a bit higher but each shift should not flair. To check lockup, while driving at about 50mph, lightly touch brake pedal and you should feel ti disengage for a moment. Since you have an opportunity to return it, It would not be a bad idea to get a hands on evaluation from another shop you trust...I can't see it from here and a live person is better equipped to give an informed opinion.
