Question about 1997 Mazda 626

1 Answer

Transmission slipping first to second gear

My transmssion has been slipping between 1st and 2nd gear, and other day had to have towed to transmission shop before shop was open.

They have not opened it up but say diaognostics indicate a problem between 3rd and 4th gear? Car has 155,000 miles on it.

They say 3 - 4 hours to get in and find out what the issues are?

And over the phone rough estimate $3000.00 to $4500.00 verbal rough quote?

Car is maybe worth $3500-$4500.00 if running condition.

Should I even let them open it up labour rates in this area are about $100.00 per hour.

Is it worth getting it opened up or should I see if can get a rebuilt transmission and replace?

This car has always shifted a bit hard.

any ideas


thanks,

Pat

Clutch starting to slip 1994 camaro can i adjust it


It does sound like your clutch needs replacing. Adjusting the clutch may help but will not solve the problem. If the transmission has not been serviced for a long time it is a good idea to replace the transmission fluid, inspect the pressure plate. They may also start to wear.

What could cause transmission to slip in 3nd automatic


transmission is worn out and needs a rebuild. over time the slipping will come to 2nd and 1st gears too. the mechanical advantage is lower in the higher gears so the slipping starts there, and in climbing grades. it made it beyond ten years, its designed service life, all mechanical and living things wear out.

call transmission shops, yellow pages, and they will give you prices to remove, rebuild, and replace your transmission and you can make the call as to whether or not it is worth it.

When hot trany will not work in all gears have just replaced filter gasket


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you haven't replaced the transmission fluid recently then now is the time. If the fluid is burnt, the transmission tends to fail specially on hot temp. Please do check the transmission fluid first as a first course of action.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

Only reverse works. No foward gears.


No forward movement in OD or D, but L2, L1 and R work: Forward sprag is broken. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

Do you have manual 1st? If so, can you shift through the gears...i.e. manual 1st to manual 2nd then 'D' then 'OD'??? Only 1st and 2nd gears use the forward sprag unless the LO/Rev clutch is engaged...i.e. 1st and 2nd if in "drive". If you can shift threw the gears manually then, yes, your forward sprag broke.

If no manual 1st then your sprag is not what broke. Sounds like you blew up the rear planet. If you pull the pan and find chunks of iron and steel, then that is probably what happened. If you have reverse then it is not the pump. If the pump was bad you would have no line pressure and it would slip in rev. or no rev. Not the beef sun shell either because you have rev., a broken sun shell would cause no 2nd, 4th and rev. gears. Either way the trans needs to come out and torn down and it will be easily found what went. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.
