Question about Plymouth Acclaim

1 Answer

My 1995 Plymouth Acclaim with the 3-speed automatic will not shift on its own. In Drive only first gear works, even at very high rpm. In D2 only second gear works, so at least I can drive 40-45 mph. After replacing seized shift cable, the steering column shifter will not travel to D1. Reverse works. I am unaware of any service done to the transmission in last 7 years. Could problem be - fluid added to full point when transmission not hot? Could problem be - the lockup clutch's solenoid switch and its controls?

It's in limp home mode. You'll have to check wire connections and electronic controls. If it has a vacuum modulator you can remove it and look for trans fluid on the vacuum hose side (meaning ruptured diaphram). Double check the parts you replaced as well, especially if they were used parts. My dad went through three speed sensors in one year on his Caravan. You should drop the pan after checking other components. It could be a bad relay, shorted module or wire. The three speed transmissions are much more reliable than the four speed overdrive transmissions but with age and miles things can go wrong and parts will wear out.

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear


1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

Transmission not shifting into 4th gear


Dirty Shift Solenoids

Have to Google your trans unit or model
& see what the inside looks like, as far as
shift control items go

It may not be going into converter lock-up
either,that is some high rpm that will overheat it
also & ruin it for good

1995 trooper transmission light blinks when shift to drive


does the speed change at all? does the speedometer if you noticed is working? if the speedo is not working then the problem is your speed sensor on the gear box is not working and that is the reason the automatic transmission stayed on safe mode. renew the speedo and will work ok.

1995 plymouth acclaim-hight idle/where and how do I get to the ilde(high) screw? Thank you.


A 1995 Plymouth Acclaim is a fuel injected vehicle which means it does not have an idle screw like the older carbrated cars. Instead your cars idle is controlled by sensors and the cars on board computer. There is a chance you either have a bad sensor or a vacuum leak some where. Both will cause a high idle. I hope this helps you out.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

1995 sunfire wont shift gear


There were two different automatic transmissions in the Sunfire that year,the 3 speed trans designated the 3T40,and the 4 speed trans designated the 4T40.If your car has the 4 speed trans,there will be a circle around the "D" on your gear selector indicator.The 3 speed trans will not have a circle around the "D".The 3 speed trans works off of a cable called the TV or Throttle Valve cable.This cable should be checked where it engages the throttle body around the area where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body,on the engine.If the cable becomes disconnected for whatever reason,the trans will not shift out of 1st gear in most cases.If the car has the 4 speed trans,this model trans is totally electronic,and the vehicle should have the codes pulled out.For every trouble code,there is a diagnostic route to follow to repair the malfunction.
