Change your input/and output speed sensors, check your fluid level in the tranny, test cam sensor. If problem still occurs then check the tranny solenoid pack and replace as needed. It is important to understand that in MOST cases, the plug in connectors to these sensors are worn and the plastic part of the plugs expand when the engine warms up and then the proper connections are lost. MOST of the time a sensor works fine but either the wire OR the connector itself is not working. Always check these connections first as most of the time this is EXACTLY what your problem may be and your repair is free!

I have a 2002 chevy suburban. 2wd 1500LS. 5.3L. While driving on highway last night transmission failed. parked and turned off. Disconnected battery, checked fluid. Restarted and it went into gear but only...


Not enough information to go by, so for starters, check the transmission fluid level, check for engine code(s), check for defective O2 sensors, check for defective catalytic converter, check for blown/missing fuse for transmission, check for defective transmission switch. When was the last time the vehicle had a tune up? Was the vehicle serviced, how recent (might have a loose connector)? Is the gas cap serviceable? These would be where I would start looking, then worse-case-scenario might be a bad transmission. Otherwise, the information given indicates that the vehicle went into limp mode.

1993 Isuzu NPR when taking off transmission shifts good but after bout 1/4 mile downshifts out of overdrive and will not shift into of again until it sits and cools for a little while


Many of todays cars have a mode called Limp Mode. The Motor and Computer talk to each other and if faults are found? The Limp Mode (( Short for Limp on home mode )) will be set in the Computer. Go to your local Auto Zone and ask them to Scan the OBD 2 fault codes with their reader. Or pay the dealer. It may be something really simple. My Check Engine light was on the other day because the Gas Cap was loose. This Scanner told us the problem and we tightened the Gas Cap. After 3 times driving the car with it tight .... The Check Engine light went off.

Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Transmission is stuck between 1st and second in limp mode


this can be from a couple of things....fill it with gas drive it for 5 miles. replace the gas cap! the last thig is that the trans need rebuilding; the seals are not working properly and will not allow the fluid to flow which does not allow for proper shifting. i changed fluid and trans filter but only got 600 mile before I had to rebuild it $1300.00

PO456 is most times a gas cap or gasket,
to get an incorrect gear ratio the transmission has probably started to slip.

Change the fluid and filter first off in the transmission and use only atf+4 fluid and possibly the govenor pressure sensor,and change gas cap.

limp mode as in computer limp in mode?check the trans fluid is it dark looking?, Need more info. Did you have the trans fluid changed recently? The reason i ask is when you change the trans fluid way after its do the new trans fluid is detergent type and fresh fluid can put the transmission in shock(Trans Shock). This can wipe out a transmission in 5 miles or so seen it too many times. Let me know how it goes. Lee

Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. It should be bright red like Strawberry colour. If it's dark like burgundy, then the fluid is burnt and the transmission needs to be serviced. Fluid and filter changed.
Have the Truck's computer scanned for any DTC codes. Most parts store like Auto Zone or Parts Source will scan for free. If there is a engine management Issues, it may be running your Yukon on a limp mode.
Limp mode will not let the transmission shift past 3rd gear and the OD does not engage, i had a cracked ignition cap and the computer put me on a limp mode once. 
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted to please.

2002 Dodge Intrepid transmission not shifting


Flush out your transmission with the correct type fluid, Mopar ATF+4, and correct filter. Disconnect Negative cable, to reset computer, for at least 24 hours. Check grounding straps for PCM, ensure they are tight and clean.
This method worked on my 2003 Intrepid SE, 3.5L, Police Pkg car.
Good Luck!!
