The passing gear cable is most likely frayed and stuck in position or the vacuum modulator needs to be replaced. The cable is attached to the trans on one end and the carb linkage on the other end.

Where is the passing gear on a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante


'Passing gear' is a term that means the transmission is down-shifted to a lower gear (e.g., from 5th gear to 4th gear) for improved acceleration to pass another vehicle. There is no physical component called a passing gear in the transmission.
To engage the 'passing gear' with an automatic transmission should require nothing more than pressing the accelerator pedal down firmly. The transmission should downshift automatically to the next lower gear (sometimes it will downshift two gear ratios, depending on your speed and how far you depress the accelerator pedal).

Tip

My car is stuck in gear.


Hi.

If we are talking about automatic transmission stuck in park position, then the problem is the solenoid switch that unlocks the gear shift lever when brake pedal is pressed. The switch is located behind the brake pedal.
When the problem is the solenoid the brake lights usually do not work.
A definitive test on the switch is done by jumping the switch contacts to bypass the brake pedal switch.

If the brake pedal switch is not the problem, or if an automatic transmission is stuck in a different gear, then the first step in troubleshooting is scanning the ECU (car computer) for codes. If there is a code P0700 stored, that means that more codes are stored in the TCM (transmission control module). The TCM is the computer module controlling the transaxle, and can be tested at any authorized garage. See: I get code p0700 after an OBDII scan.
There are many possible reasons for automatic transmission malfunctions. Most common reasons (that can also cause lock in one gear) are discussed here:My car does not shift in second gear.
If you are lock in park, check the pedal switch and brake lights as a first thing.

If you have a manual transmission stuck in any gear, it is usually the gear shaft broken or detached from the hub. In that case the gear shaft must be replaced.

I have a jaguar xj8 and the gear got stuck in park ,and I can't put it in reverse or drive. How can I fix this problem


Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.

Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode


I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...

Transmission Slipping?


Putting it in four wheel drive does not eliminate the transmission. Honestly, it sounds like the transmission is on it's way out. A 4l60e in one of cars was acting the same way. It required a rebuild.

I would look under the hood for a relay box and see if the relay needs to be replaced for the tail lights. As far as the acceleration i would try ramping up to passing speed the vehicle could have a governor limiting the top speed.

2006 chrysler 300 transmission slips


Low on transmission fluid. The tranny fluid can only be checked by Chrysler, there is no dip stick, because you have to know the motor temp to be able to know where the fluid should register on the dip stick. Crazy!
Its not slipping now, but shifts hard. Has to be looked at by Chrysler again, but its done this since Ive had it, so I didnt realize it was a problem....
