Sounds to me like your transmission lost a gear. Could be something in the clutchpack, or maybe the valve body. Either way, you are going to need to get it to a transmission shop. One word of advice, use a reputable shop, not a discount transmission shop. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a Payless transmission go out within two weeks of being put in.

Sounds as if forward driving gears are shot. Different gears make vehicle move in reverse. I would ask if transmission fluid level when checked is in the operation range or full.

Will not move in gear transmission or computer or joint problem?


If you have the CV joint with problem, surely you will get a knocking metal noise, unless broke in the center cv joint. Jack it up and turn the wheel/wheels by rotating them with your hands.Surely something you will hear. Good luck.

Hi ive got a citroen dispatch van 1.6 hdi 07 plateive had upto date first and second syncros done the a new gear box with linkages the all the syncros with gears and a new clutch but it has done it again...


you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Tranmission problem on 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan


When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
