Obtain a fault code from the obd plug, go from there. If there are no strange noises then control unit is faulty. Stupid thing- is the fluid level ok?

How can I fix a Nissan liberty automatic not changing gears when it gets hot

Hi sad to say this gearbox requires valve body repairs ,replacement of dextron 3 ATF fluid and filter.clutches and friction plates should be checked replaced if worn.Torque converter should be checked out.If gearbox has electronic functions a diagnostic report should be done before stripping.A conventional auto gearbox pre 2000 model could be fitted with a external modulator switch causing present fault ,over powering the above mentioned faults.

Multitronic gearbox

dont ask a dealer-bettr advice from privatemechs--ur car needs a datastream run-to show values whats goin on in the system--specific gear is used not a cheap code reader--the computer may hav issues-unplug it and clean the connectors-then see if it clears anything--ur library has vehicle repair books

I have a 1994 Saturn SC 2 manual and sometimes it does not want to go into 1st gear, and I have to pop the clutch several times before t will go into first gear. What can I do to fix this?

sounds like gear linkage on top of gearbox under car. should be adjustable. simple job. if not, could be an internal gearbox problem. ie. dogs in gearbox worn. big job. or could simply be a clutch problem. difficult without driving car.

My Audi 03 A4 shutters on take off like a clutch engaging and dis engaging but it's auto...

If you have C.V drive joints worn this maybe why there's a shutter when taking off,did you get them checked out recently,also along with worn CV drives joints a bush on the wish bone arms on the inside near the chassis can be wearing out,so the car wheels move forward a few inches before the chassis and car do.Also if its an auto,your transmission oil may need changing,its tick and clogging the sive,filter.Or thick in cold weather before heat up.

My hilux has a bad shudder when i take off but gets better as the car gets warmer i replaced drive shaft and got it balanced tightened my engine mounts but i cant think what could be causing the problem.

Hi there.
you dont say if the vehicle is auto or manual?? If manual, drop gearbox/tranny and check condition of clutch assembly.. it could be worn or the pressure plate could be defective causing it to bounce when taking off from a stand still, as for it getting better when car warms up, the clutch gets warm from friction and may expand just enough to even out the problem??
Good Luck.

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates

This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

Audi a4 tdi stiff gearchange worse when hot 1197 model

tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement
