Question about 2008 GMC Acadia

1 Answer

2008 Acadia....48000 miles....then tranny wouldn't shift beyond 2nd or 3rd. Dealer "repaired" it, not a Serta replacement. Then, 20,000 miles later, same thing happened. It's in the shop now. I get a free loaner....great-- but I'll never trust the Acadia tranny again. Anybody have the number to Ford or Chrysler?? *As I will probably sell this GMC lemon soon! john reilly: jdreilly2@msn.com

SOURCE: 1995 GMC Transmision slipping

hey john. ya..funny chev trannys. try idling it , selecting every gear, pausing for 2 seconds at each selection. make note of where the fluid is going? make note if it is happening while hot or cold.
Also change the fluid and screen or filter. they do make some metal and that could also be a cause. good luck!

SOURCE: The transmission is shifting hard going from 1st

rec check fluid first. If trans fluid hasn't been changed in last 30,000 miles change fluid, filter and pan gasket. At that time inspect for foreign materials in bottom of pan or on magnet if you have one. If truck has over 100K and fluid was never changed you may have more problems if changing the fluid.

Transmission won't shift

If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

2008 Hyundai Accent problems


first, what is the condition and level of the tranny fluid ? compare with new one please. if not the same by far in clour or odor, get the transmission filter and oil changed. while the pan is off, look in it to see if there is metal in it. if so, your torque converter may need to be change. a little greyish residue at the bottom is normal but if the magnet is full and also the, you got a problem. you may need to rebuild it or replace it.

Usually burnt and discolored ATF mean pump or torque converter not doing there job or bands and clutches are worn. Shift solinoid or a pressure problem is the problem with 2nd and 3rd gear, Take it to a transmission shop and have them look it over but like I said earlierdiscolored ATF could mean a rebuild.

Hard up and down-shifting into 2nd gear - manual transmission


I have seen this happen in numerous cars, I have a mazda that does that, my buddy has an 04 suzuki aerio that does that etc etc etc.... There really ins't a "fix" for that as it really is just what late model manual trannys do, all you can do is just let your car warm up. If you are really concerned you can throw a new tranny on there but once it gets broken in it will start doing that too. Sorry!
