You can check to see if the tv cable is hooked up the rubber grommet dry rots it hooks up to the throttle body. And ck down at the trans where the cable hooks up make sure it's not stuck if so lube and work the linkage back and forth.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Transmission/97/toyota/camery


I assume it is an auto by what you say. Is the O/D light blinking any codes? It is common in that model for the shift solenoids to fail, one or both, and the transmission then cannot find low gears forward.

Get a readout of trouble codes from a mobile come-to-you mechanic, or your own OBD reader, to see if that is it.

I have a strong reverse in my 1998 blazer's auto transmission but no foward gears work. Do I need a complete overhaul or change the filter and solenoid?


After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.

Mazda wont go foward or reverse.


If you are lucky, you are just out of transmission fluid. Add fluid to refill the transmission to the mark on the dip stick. Afterward, you need to determine where the old transmission fluid leaked out and fix the leak. If refilling the transmission does not fix the problem, you then need to look at fixing the transmission. Are you sure the shift linkage is ok?

Hyundai accent won't move in reverse. It can go foward just fine.


on a hyundai you have a shifting sensor attached to the transmission that if it starts to go bad it will cause many problems, hard shifting, loss of power or no shifting.
