My SV6 VE 6 speed auto commodore holds 3rd gear longer than other gears peak traffic - any advice greatly accepted. At the front of the queue - the gearbox changes through all gears perfect - thanks


I would try servicing the transmission, that means a new fluid filter and a fluid drain and refill, it may help. You may have a sticking pressure check valve.

Wont shift into third gear and also sometimes hesitates when I accelerate (as if it was being flooded).


hi, My first thought on this is that you may have a linkage issue. your shifter may read that you are in drive, but you may only be in 2nd gear. Check it out. bump it up so it will look like you are putting the car into nutral, but be careful to not go too far and put it in reverse. if that is not the issue, I would suggest that your car has a brain that knows that the transmition has a problem with 3rd gear and simply wont let it shift into 3rd because maybe there is no 3rd. like the band could be broken. post your results if ya dont mind. I am interested to hear more. I hope this helps ya. Tim

I have a 94 Jaguar xj6. the transmission light is on. it shifts hard in maybe 1st and 2nd gear. I've changed the transmission ecu, transmission relay, and fuses that have to do with the gearbox.


Change the xmission fluid and filter. If that doesnt fix it, it could be the solenids, the soleniod pack, what evey they call it on a Jag.

How to replace transmission filter in 1989 k 1500


If its staying in second gear, problems could be a plugged valve body, electric solenoid failure, or linkage problems.
Changing the filter probably won't help.

Toyota Vista SV50 model / year 1999: I have used Dextron type 2 automatic fluid in the auto transmission. Could this be the problem for auto gears sticking in same gear too long when car is started in...


Hi, since you use a dextron type 2 automatic fluid then it is not cause of the sticking gear. Rather it should be as a result of a clogged transmission filter. A clogged transmission filtercan cause problems with changing gears because it will not allow the fluid to pass through the valve body or valve solenoids at the proper pressure. Without pressure, the plates won't move properly and you won't be able to easily change gears. This can be symptomatic either by itself or along with burnt or worn out transmission fluid, and both should generally be replaced at the same time, rather than just replacing one or the other.

My 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue will start, but it won't move. Someone told me it was my transmission that went out, could it be this or something else? Problem happened at 180,000 miles. The mechanic told...



  • I don't know about reasonable. I don't know how they can assess something they have not seen with a price like that unless they are gunning for a full transmission replacement which is shady, in my opinion. Some other possibilities should have been voiced. Yes it could be the transmission needs replaced but there are some things to consider and check first.
  • Have you checked the transmission fluid level yet? Low fluid will butterfly the transmission.
  • Fluid over 50,000 miles needs replaces as well. Don't do this yet unless you get the transmission going or it may be a waste of money. If you get it going again and the miles call for it then flush the transmission fluid.
  • When is the last time you changed the transmission filter and gasket (sold as a kit)? A really clogged filter can inhibit your vehicle like that and make it not drive.
  • Open the hood and look at the transmission linkage. Now have someone get into the car and put their foot on the brake and drop it into gear. Do you see the linkage (on top of the transmission) move back and forth as they switch gears? If not then the linkage is hung up somewhere. If not then the linkage may be fine.

  • These are some things to look at before you go for the new transmission. I might suggest you get the opinion of a transmission shop first or at least the opinion of someone willing to do a little diagnosing first.

  • Hope this helps and good luck to you.
  • Thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Will not change gear until you have done about 2 miles. 1993 ford explorer 4ltr v6 left hand drive ( eddie bouer )


How many miles? Get the transmission serviced. Get the filter changed and get new fluid put in. Ford transmissions arent that great, but try getting the transmission serviced. I got a ford taurus that was said to have a bad trans. I changed the filter and put a new filter in. Voila, a 500 dollar car turned into a 3000 dollar car. : )
