Shift lever hard to release when cold


I am assuming you have a floor/console shift and not a column shift. Most often this is caused by spilled coffee or soda pop in the console. Wash the end of the shift interlock cable with warm soapy water (warmer the better).

I have a 1999 dodge 2500 and when the trucks cold the transmission works fine but as it gets warm it won't shift in first gear. What could it be?


You may just have to change the fluid, old fluid will allow auto transmissions to slip and they may not shift properly ! Its a cheap fix! compared to a trans rebuild ! Good Luck!

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

My 1999 Silverado 5.3L automatic won't shift from 2nd to 3rd until 2500 rpm when it's cold. When warm works fine but 1st to 2nd shift won't happen until 2500 rpm, speratically. Transmissio


I had a friend that had this problem.I work at a G.M.dealership and I ask a friend that does trans work there.He said this is normal in cold weather.This is done in order for the trans to reach operating temperature sooner.This could be why you are unable to fix this problem because it is normal.I looked in service info to see if I could find a bulletin or something to back this up but I did not find anything.I know this guy very well and I know he knows his work and is good at it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I would check the fluid level, color and smell, also you can try replacing the transmission filter.

Transmission shifts irratic when cold


If fluid level is good, the hydraulic value of the trans fluid maybe low or worn. If fluid is old or burnt, (never been changed, or high mileage,) sometimes not a good idea to flush. Highly suggest LUCAS (ONLY) Transmission Treatment, carefully read instructions on bottle. Transmission replacement is expensive, following maintance will prove rewarding! If you wait to long to flush trans your worse off!!! Hopefully helpful!!!!
