Hi David, Look for grounds, especially the headlight switch it self... Most of the time the issue you describe is resolved by replacing the headlight switch. There is a variable resistor that fails, over time.

If the headlight switch itself is loose, proper grounding would fail, and current runs other places.

Both the radio and the gear shifter are affected by the dimmer and on or off status of the headlight switch.

SOURCE: hard shifting from 1st to 2nd

I have been hearing a possible solution for this problem is changing the oil filter in the trans oil pan. But ive been looking all over for a solutionand thats the only legit one ive found. It said when the oil gets clogged it doesnt flow to the transmission as nicely as normal therefore leading to lagging changes

I buying 1999 monte carlo and the older man and the man said it wont move in drive or over drive but gear 2 and i went over to test drive in and he put tran fluid and i shift from 2 to drive and it work...


That is correct.....the automatic transmission works on fluid pressure to change gears, and if there i no or little fulid, then this will create problems in shifting........

If it works great, but be careful to wonder why the fluid had to be topped up...if it was low, it either leaked out, so there would be eviddence of dripping on the concrete/driveway...or it is being burnt, through a vaccum leeak......both of which can be expensive.....

I would suggest a thoruogh check performed by a mechanic that you trust !!

I have a 1999 monte carlo with a 3.8L V-6. The check engine light did not come on; however, it is not shifting into overdrive and shifting rough when hot. Any ideas?


Hello,
You are experiencing the most common signs of the end of the life of the 4T65 Transmission that is installed on your vehicle. There are many ways to prolong the life of the transmission, however since you've already lost overdrive chances are your transmission is passed the point of being saved. Most 4T65 transmissions begin to exhibit this above 120k miles give or take depending on driving habits. Some have had success with replacing the solenoids and valve body, however chances are your transmission is need of an entire replacement or rebuild.

Won't shift into overdrive


The engine temp has nothing to do with overdrive, transmission temp may, but either way if you are just coasting it should go in, or maintaining a speed of at least 44mph it should go in. How many miles on your car? It could be a sign of worse to come, usually the highest gears go first.... 3rd or 4th gear could be next.
