It's most likely NOT a cheap fix. It could be your computer, the spark plugs, or you need a hardcore oil change/transmission fluid change. Those are the cheap options.

Otherwise it's your transmission itself, which would need work, or to be replaced, which is the more expensive thing you can do to a car.

Go to a mechanic and ask for them to run a full systems check, they hook up a machine that basically checks every possible angle on your car, it should run you 50-85 bucks for the system check, maybe put a thing of engine cleaner in your gas tank after fueling up to clean out some of the residue.

hope it helps.

Where is the automatic transmission fluid temperature sensor on a 2002 Mitzibishi Montero Sport located? The transmision is not working properly. The tranny is stuck in 3rd gear.


Its in the transmission pan area part of the valve body,this sensor just does one thing report the temperature of the transmission,If you are stuck in 3rd gear this sensor has nothing to do with gear change, it is not responsible for shifting. If you pulled this from a generic scan tool it may be a logic code that has suspended a function code, go ahead and change it , there the filter and fluid will get changed and if you get a code it will be a function code

Transmision starts out in 1st shifts to 2nd then third but will not shift into overdrive , but once it reaches 3rd gear ,it stays there when you come to a stop . after that it will only shift manually...


Sounds like your transmission is in limp mode. This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

The other from what you described, trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Thank you for using fixya and have your Safari scanned for the DTC codes that would indicate what issues your transmission is having to put you in to limp mode.

Transmission does not shift automatically, only manually. Swap in a known-good PCM, check wiring, check other sensors such as VSS and TPS.

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line
, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmision is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the underhood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Good luck and get back to me, hope this helps.

What is automatic transmission?


automatic means the transmission will shift itself when it hits a certain rpm.
A manual transmission means you get to decide when to shift it.
