Hi! Please replace the torque converter for it seems to be faulty. It has big contribution on the transmission specially on shifting. After replacement of the torque converter I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid for better shifting and smoother drive. You'll be good after this. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

I think you have a problem with the shifter cable connection to the transmission. This cable goes from your shifter lever to your transmission position switch. If the cable is loose or stretched or improperly installed it will not indicate or move into the gear position you want. So when you are in reverse, the tranny switch may not be exactly there. The other problem as you indicated acceleration is slow, this could be due to your tranny is not in the drive position but really in the L or 2 position.
To fix this you need to follow the shifter cable to the transmission, set the switch to the neutral position and set the shifter lever to N and reset the cable to the switch (nut or clip). Good luck!

2006 Forenza goes into every gear but won't move?


is car a stick shift or auto.
must be and automatic trans
so do all shifted selections fail. on the gear shift lever.
lever does work right? moves.?
and PRNDL.
Reverse fail too?
and Drive
and Low.
get car serviced. or if handy....???
check levels, fuses and scan it.

yet another poster that never heard of or seen a stick shifted car.
gee, is it auto or stick
in both cases the cable most move at both ends.
and move correctly, or it will never shift.
have friend shift and you watch at the lever on side of the transaxle,
yes, that be like first and logical, right>

its just a cable shifter. its FWD as most are.


I wont say sounds like, as Im blind here and cant see car, drive it ,feel it or anything.
why ask the blind for help.?????
if it died moving, seems to me the cable didnt fall off and the trans shift to neutral, but?
but your post lack any facts. but died.

if car is AT (auto) check levels? for trans.
check linkage, yet.
check fuses, if it wont shift to 2nd,
if manual same checks, level and linkage works.
only the Fluid is different and the stick shift has a foot clutch and it can go bad too.
a stick shift clutch can fail and slip 100%
so , we can not guess what car you are driving
and asking for help when even you dont know that.
is over the top.

its supposed to, with an automatic.
my guess, is its doing something strange, so ask someone
to drive your car, a that can explain the symptoms.
here is a typical list of symptoms. your FSM covers each.

Sounds like it is having trouble getting to first gear. You really should have a transmission shop look at it. Could be the linkage or range sensor, but seems more like a shift solenoid to me.

Was your issue the range selector switch (a.k.a. range sensor, prindle switch, park/neutral safety switch). Part # 37720-86z01?

It is located on the outside of the transmission on the front side (not between the transmission and the firewall). You can open the hood and put an eye on it.

Be VERY sure to alignment it properly AND to clear the code.

If this helps, please say so!

Gear is slipping


this is something that a transmission shop will have to fix. also sounds like the sensor on shifting of transmission isnt receiving proper shifting signal.

TRANSMISSION PULLS VERY VERY SLOW IN DRIVE AND ONLY WHEN I ACCELERATE HEAVILY. REVERSE WORKS FINE.


is this car still under warranty? if so take it back to the dealer and don't accept it as repaired till you drive it. sounds like the logic that controls the transmission is flipping out, sometimes they will tell you that it needs a reflash. what this amounts to is that the manufacturer put some not so great programming in the logic when they built the car but now they have a patch or fix that makes it work better but you have to pay them for their time to install the fix. ask them what they will charge you for the privilege and decide if it's worth it to you. there is a recorded technical service bulletin about harsh shifts for your car. well, actually there are two, the latest one a revision of the first. i would try to make this their problem, it really is. hope this helps.
