Weird shifting after changing ATF and replacing filter


An old saying is "don't change the fluid for the first time after 100k".
If the transmission has not been serviced before 100k doing it after that point often causes problems. It has something to do with what is floating around in the oil.
In your case you may have stirred up some junk that is now in the valve body.

Shifting hard and sometimes slow shifting at times like a slipping


The first thing is to check your fluid level while its running and hot.If its dark in color or smells funny change the fluid and filter.If your light comes on it will be the transmission solenoids.

I have a 2000 ford fucas, when lights are on while driving down road, lights shut off or flicker by themselves, at that time the transmission begins to shifts funny and sometimes shifts funny at take off.


It sounds like you may have a loose or broken ground wire somewhere that is causing both problems. The transmission shifting is done electrically. I would get it checked, before you damage the transmission.

I have had my tiburon less than a year but about a month ago the transmission started to act weird. At first it began shifting between i think third and fourth gear which made the rpms go higher than they...


the trans computer has seen a problem possible a bad sensor, or an internal problem, and puts it into a safe mode, or limp home mode , it wont shift , it will stay in 3rd gear, this way this reduces the possibility of further damage trans damage, when you turn the ignition off and back on it resets the tcm, my advice is to take it to your local dealer, they can diag your trans as they know the product, i dont advise pep boys, or discount auto parts.

I installed new intake monifold gaskets because the bottom one was sucking air in and my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine would run at 2300 RPM'S. After changing the gaskets the car is hard to start...


Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident

Changed transfilter and fluid and now slip shifts and/or shift intermittent error


Sometimes if you have to wrangle the pan off(you didn't remove the cross-member) you will damage the shift solenoids. If you have a check engine light you can get it checked at any Advance Auto store for free. If the codes show shift A and Shift B they are pretty easy to fix,(they are on the bottom of the tranny,you have to pull the pan off again though) If not sometimes the tranny just gets used to the old fluid and acts funny when you put in new, might be time for a rebuild

Not shifting from 2nd gear


when the car gets stuck in second gear, this is called limp in mode. that is a safety feature biult in to keep from further transmission dammage. these cars have a common problem with the solenoid packs inside the transmission. if the tranny doesn't slip or act funny at all untill it goes into limp mode i would say that this solenoid pack is your problem. i have had to replace countless numbers of these.to replace is a little bit of a job. you have to drop the pan, take off the shift linkage, remove the valve body bolts, dissconnect the wire harness, and then remove the solenoid pack bolts and swap packs. if you are not familiar with the inside of the tranny it would pay to have a proffesional to do the job. speed sensors could be another cause but i have found the solenoid pack to be more prone to problems on these particular vehicles. first place to start would be a scan to make sure the codes point to the pack. i believe there is a technical service bulletin on this problem.

2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD


Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.
