The only way to address this to get any code that may be stored and to look at all the data using a data scanner. It would be easy to say a given sensor is at fault but diagnostic procedures make you check the computer and wiring first once you have a direction to go. On this kind of car it gets expensive if you just start guessing.

HHO failed, and x,z,y.
even the match book cover, showing "turn water to fuel" fails.
im pulling your leg,

running out of fuel , likes to burn up fuel pumps.
they are fuel cooled and fuel lubricated. so dont do that. or $$$$$$$
after you ran it dry, the pump can fail, or have hard time priming.
long cranking to get the full system primed.
is engine running ok?, you failed to say that important fact...so.....
if engines ok?
does car go fast in 1st gear, fact 2 missing.....so...........???
wont shift can mean , tranny slips or wont go to 2nd, 3rd gear.???

one way is to pull the battery neg cable for 5 min.

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and


Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.

Trans on my 1999 3500 silverado is shifting late wont go into overdrive till 62 mph could it be the speed censor & where is it


Hi, the late shift, and late overdrive issue may not be trans. related, if you need to feather the accelerator to achieve your shifts, and you have a late sift, or loss of power, you may have a restricted fuel filter. The lack of fuel volume can result in what feels like a trans. issue, but in actuality, you are starving the engine for fuel. I would check this first, as it is an easy, cheap possibility. Good luck...Coop

It wont shift into any gear, the cables seem to be o k


Well youll need a second person to help on this one. One person to press brake pedal and some one to make sure brake lights a working.
Most vehicle have a shift lock on them that works with brake so that when you shift the car into gear it senses that the brake is on so it wont just jump forward or backward for safety. Id start with checking that it has brake lights then next would be fuses.

Wont shift past 2nd


Find your throttle valve cable attached up near cable from throttle pedal ,it's the one that runs down behind toward transmission. With engine off in park,park brake on, Have someone push gas pedal to the floor & observe that cable, to make sure it is retracting properly when pedal released. Now get under & watch where that cable attaches & watch it while doing the same with gas pedal. The lever that it attaches to should move freely & rotate one way when gas pedal pushed, and should return all the way the other way when pedal released. Sometimes that linkage or cable will get seized, and not return fully, which will hold transmission in lower gear. You can use your hand to make sure it is returning all the way if necessary, and if needed, apply penetrating spray to loosen it up, then apply something like white lithium grease to coat it after it's unseized, to prevent repeat in near future.

Wont shift out of park


Same thing happened to me. I had accidentally kicked something while streching out my right leg. It turns out there is an actual switch somewhere up above your feet directly above the brake pedal area that I had toggled when streching my leg!

Because I knew that it must have been that I kicked something, I was reaching under there, above near the brake pedal and eventually, miraculously found a little switch, which when toggled again, allowed me to get the car out of park and drive away.

I have yet to find any reference to this in the owners manual or online yet, but it's a fact.
I tried to find the switch again a moment ago, but could not - had to get back into work as I had been stranded on the road for the last half hour.

WEIRD!

Transmision wont shift out of 2nd gear


Maybe, but won't know till you take it too tranny shop. Even iif it is done a rebuilt is still cheaper than brand new. And, less you drive it now less damage done.

Automatic transmission will not shift into higher gear


Probably a bad ignition switch not sending power to the IGN 0 fuse which provides power to every solenoid in the transmission.
