Question about 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT

Open Question

My Mitsubishi 3000gt spyder won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear once it gets hot. I'm changing the fluid and filter now, but should I replace the temp sensor while I'm in the pan?

SOURCE: automatic transmission not shifting into 3rd or 4th

call a dealer and they will tell you you are suppose to change your transmission fluid every 2 years or 30,000miles but if you was carrying this much load you may have over heated the transmission so I would shop around and get a good deal at a transmission place where they can replace the filter and the fluid and adjust the bands on the transmission if needed

SOURCE: trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th

DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

1993 Mitsubishi 3000gt won't go into 4th gear


The 3rd to OD shift solenoid is bad. You have to remove the transmission pan to replace it. While in there, I would take out the other 2 and thoroughly clean them with spray brake or carb cleaner. You will be amazed how much crud will come out.

You may have some other problems too. The Mitsus of that era were notorious for having circuit board problems in the engine and transmission computers. The capacitors leaked and damaged the circuit boards. Sometimes they can be saved by replacing the caps and a thorough cleaning. I have rebuilt several over the years, not always successfully.

A guy named Dean Mason at TransLab in Cali makes a shift improver kit for your car. I STRONGLY recommend you install one when the pan is off. If you are on the east coast, try John at Import Performance Trans in NJ.

Not sure what you mean by "gear shifter is going into different gears without pushing button.

I have owned a 91 3000GT for 8 years and know them like the back of my hand. If you need anymore help, post here and I will give you my email.

When did you last replace trans filter and fluid? Dirt may be causing shift valve to stick.

Bad rebuilt torque converter or bad fluid


Draining the fluid is easier than replacing the TC. I would try a drain an filter first, then move on from there.

I have a 1999 Tiburon. Trans starts off in 2nd gear and goes to 3rd but will not go into overdrive.When starting cold though, it will shift 1,2&3. Also overdrive(4th gear) light will not come on.


I would check into the Trans oil temp sensor,they are known to keep the trans from shifting into 4th gear if they have a open or a shorted circuit...This may also be the culprit for the other issues you are experiencing when the trans is at diff temps and doing diff things....The other thing that is known for going bad in that Transaxle is the Sunshell...The splines on the inside of the sunshell strip out and than you will lose pretty much all forward gears,Except for 1st gear most likely and you will also lose Reverse if the Sunshell goes bad...But this will not act any different if the temperature is cold or hot

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Mileage 132000. 1 to 2 shift normal. Trans. will not upshift into 3rd. gear, goes to 4th. It will downshif to 3rd. from 4th. When the trans. get hot from stop and go...


If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

4l60e trans. will not shift out of 3rdgear...


Have it scanned. Have the person who scans it pay particular attention to the Transmission temp sensor. If the Transmission temp sensor tells the ecm the transmission is cold, it won't shift to 4th. Also if it thinks the transmission is too hot it won't allow a 3-4 shift.

My 3000gt is stuck in 3rd gear why? this is a automatic


Your transmissions need to be service (fluid and filter change) and possibly a TCU replacement. Do NOT go to a dealer. Instead, look on ebay or craigslist for part outs. Transmission control units can be expensive but that is most likely the problem if you already changed ur fluid.
