You should have diagnosed the original trans. Would you jump off a bridge if told to? Take it to a trans shop and stop wasting time on something your not familar with. You never install a used trans. Just someone elses junk.

P0756 code Honda accord 2005

P0756all p07 codes are tranny.

  • Shift Solenoid 'B' Stuck Off (read the FSM page on 756 it tells you how to do the checks )

  • if 756 is cleared. (reset it using the scan tool, drive 20 miles, still set?)?

    if you get them clear, all DTCs
    do the tranny stall test. stated n the FSM.
    stall the torque converter. in 1st gear, parked.
    if rpm is too low the engine has power issues
    if Rpm is way too high (slip?) bad tranny. (or wires to it)

    Clutch cable geo tracker

    don't want to shift? fills a huge basket ,
    1: grinds?
    2: can't get in to some gears.? or all gears.? (engine running and not)?
    3: clutch drags, clutch slips kills all gears, or just 5th.
    drag kills them all and reverse 1st , its the canary gear. !! non synchro
    4: noise.? or chatter, ****,larchig, or throwout hash ,?

    here is the clutch page, link below.

    the #1 failure for a gear not Selecting is a $5 fix.
    the tip of the shifter shaft, plastic POS is broken, bar none this failure,#1 and sold only at SUZ, get em' while you can they are chapter 11 ANDGM/GEO is brain dead , ask them , and you get blank stares.

    this can be proven, by selecting the gears by hand. running.
    if failure, cant move those fork rods?
    running? only
    if you cant, the clutch is dragging. see why?
    works stalled means the clutch drags.
    can you shift to 1st stalled, start engine drive off can you get any gear? yes,if yes , constantly? with no grinding, the clutch is ok.

    to do that manual shifter off test test the shifter must be removed.

    the we get to the cable.
    see the 1inch rule here, no guessing.
    play set to spec, and you floor the pedal , person 2 sees 1 inch travel, (END new cable worry)
    if it moves 1inch and the tranny can not be SELECTED.
    the clutch is bad, if you can select only stalled motor.
    if selection fails all time, stalled and running, the tranny is siezed.
    covers every fail logged by 1000s of users

    When I come to a stop my Sequoia stalls. When I put it in neutral or park it starts right back up, but as soon as you shift into gear it stalls. If I increase rpms then shift into gear will drive and...

    Stalling is normally caused by a problem with
    A) Lack of air - check your air filter
    B) Lack of fuel - the fuel filter/fuel injectors get dirty
    C) Lack of spark - inspect your plugs & wires
    Might want to try cleaning the throttle body. Every 30k miles they should be cleaned.
    Best bet however is to take it to a reliable, licensed mechanic. Vehicles 1996 & newer can have diagnostic codes read by a computer hooked up to the vehicle, identifying the problem.

    99 dodge ram 4x4 w 360 engine trans has only 1st gear and reverse

    Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that
