1992 jeep wrangler will not go forward only reverse has standard transmission

does dont move mean it slips

can you move throttle to say 3000 rpm and car will not move.

this is gross slip. or FLare. RPM matters. here.

why?, because the engine must be good, to move forward.

hot and cold engine? no move forward.? or both?

standard means manual transmission.

so the clutch is bad.

my guess is you meant it has a A/T box.

mine has a 6sp, M/T box.

apples and oranges diffr.

this car had 4 transmission options day1 factory build day.


2 auto

2 manual standard, stick.

ill guess at 32RH at (not AW-4 auto) 32RH is a 3 speed.


levels good, per the operators guide, do not guess, use the steps in the guide, the A/T box is not checked like the engine, at all.

is the fluid, pink (ATF) or black and with metal flakes, dripping off end of dip stick. or stinks, smoky not sweet smell.


is the shifter moving the shift side crank on tranny correctly?

this takes careful observation .

  1. level checks, and lever action.

  2. replace the filter now. was this step skipped for 22 years?

  3. get the full flush no , may be the AFT fuild types were mixed up?

  4. this means the stall test fails, (dont move)

  5. so in the FSM the next test is the pump pressure test port test. called LINE checks, this is next. if fail the tranny is bad.

  6. whats next depends on %5

the tranny pages below, pdf page 71 shows the 1st line test.

there are 5 line tests.

if you can do that, , then find a shop that can.

you will never get to the stall test because the tranny slips. test 6

see yJ 93, tranny

Why does my honda civic RPM accelerates in low speeds?

ok good question
is car and Automatic or manual shift. my wild guess is A/T tranny
my wild guess 2 is, the transmission is slipping
you see RPM rise real fast and MPH dont.
this is called slipping and will burn up the tranny if kept up.
did i guess right.

the A/T has over 200 parts and the tests are long.
and repairs, can be huge labor.
The FSM covers all this.

take car to any ASE (USA) cert . mechanic. (see patch on sleeve)
and he will drive it and tell you, in 5min whats bad
engine, or A./T
that is first. i

Vehicle drive smooth then all of a sudden the wheels starting to tighten car slow down.

what makes you thing the tires/wheels tighten (felt by hand off ground?)
my guess , you meant it seems. like???
1: lost engine power?
2: transmission not up shifting?

is this a auto A/T or manual M/T tranny,
if A/T , you need to look at the engine RPM when you lose
power (acceleration on demand)

RPM rises, car dont move faster ,this is tranny slip.
RPM fails to increase, and speed, up hills. this is called lost engine power.
lost engine power can be caused by , bad spark (tuneups skipped?)
or weak fueling.
weak fueling too can be cause by skipping the fuel filter step in the tune up list.

2002 Honda civic, car still moves when put in park

car move, in park and brakes set.?
my guess, is it moves, brakes not set, and is bad.
the linkage to the tranny are bad. (adjust it , inspect it visuall)
the tranny parking pawl is sheared in half. (using park while moving wrecks this part , sheared or bent)
park = transmission selector is in the park position,

I did a stock motor swap for my 2000 honda civic. "Its an automatic by the way". I put the old tranny onto the motor i bought. Drop everything in, crank it up but the tranny felt like its jerking...

you need to drain it and use honda trans oil its sythetic if you use straight md3 it will shift hard. make sure everything is plugged in.

1998 honda civic lx 1.6 automatic

Sounds about right. There shouldn't be that much movement from the transmission and motor when shifting gears. Have someone turn the car on and shift gears, then watch the tranny and motor and see how much it moves, it should not move that much or any at all, and if it does, check the mounts to see which ones are bad. PLEASE---Don't stand in front of the car when performing this test, for your safety.
