When I start the engine, the word SPORTS flashes on the instrument panel for a few seconds. What does ths mean?


It means your car has various modes for the way it drives. In Sports Mode, it revs higher in each gear and changes gear quickly giving you fast acceleration. It will often lock onto the gear when your take your foot off the brake to give you engine braking and keeping the wheels in contact with the engine rather than free-wheeling.

The opposite is Ecomony, which changes gear as early as possible and keeps the revs low with smooth changes.

In the middle is Normal mode.

Hope that helps.

2003 aviator won't go into gear


When you say the vehicle "won't go into gear," do you mean you cannot move the lever out of PARK, or do you mean that when you move the lever out of PARK the transmission will not engage?
If the lever will not move out of PARK, check your BRAKE LIGHT fuse, your BRAKE LIGHT switch, and the SOLENOID at the shift mechanism.
If your lever moves out of PARK easily (too easily), it is possible that your shift linkage has broken or come loose.
If your lever moves out of PARK normally but the transmission does not engage, it's time to have the car towed to the transmission repair shop.

Use of a/t modegood day just to ask query regarding my mitsubishi pajero 2.8 intercooler 4wd 4m40 engine, regarding button at center this indicated with mode A/T what this mean it can help me in my dr


You can use thar switch to control transmission/gear box response, middle is for normal driving, power is for holding gears up to higher RPMs and the other ones should say some like Snow, basically starts driving the car from 2nd gear to avoid wheels slippage.

I have toyota axio g grade 2007 december car.what does it mean S & B in gear system.


The short answer:

S is for low speeds with quick pickup.
S is not economical. Thats why the eco light is off.

Use B when you're climbing down steep hills and needs to slow down without overheating the brakes.


The long answer:
  • Brake (B)A mode selectable on some Toyota models. In non-hybrid cars, this mode lets the engine do compression braking, also known as engine braking, typically when encountering a steep downhill. Instead of engaging the brakes, the engine in a non-hybrid car switches to a lower gear and slows down the spinning tires. The engine holds the car back, instead of the brakes slowing it down. For hybrid cars, this mode converts the electric motor into a generator for the battery. It is not the same as downshifting in a non-hybrid car, but it has the same effect in slowing the car without using the brakes. GM called this HR (hill retarder) and GR (grade retarder) in the 1950s.


S has 2 possibilities

  • Second (2 or S)This mode limits the transmission to the first two gear ratios, or locks the transmission in second gear on Ford, Kia, and Honda models. This can be used to drive in adverse conditions such as snow and ice, as well as climbing or going down hills in the winter time. Some vehicles will automatically shift up out of second gear in this mode if a certain RPM range is reached in order to prevent engine damage. Although traditionally considered second gear, there are other names used. Chrysler models with a three-speed automatic since the late 1980s have called this gear 3 while using the traditional names for Drive and Low.
  • S or SportThis is commonly described as 'Sport mode'. It operates in an identical manner as 'D' mode, except that the upshifts change much higher up the engine's rev range. This has the effect on maximising all the available engine output, and therefore enhances the performance of the vehicle, particularly during acceleration. This mode will also downchange much higher up the rev range compared to 'D' mode, maximising the effects of engine braking. This mode will have a detrimental effect on fuel economy. Hyundai has a Norm/Power switch next to the gearshift for this purpose on the Tiburon. GM also used S to indicate a "super" mode, being the same as the 2 position on a Chrysler, shifting between only first and second gears.


Dont use B or S for general driving as both are very low on fuel efficiency.

My intrepid suddenly won't shift out of 1st and the auto stick won't work. I assume it's something with the transmission. Is this expensive to fix


Sorry but these vehicles are notorious for bad transmisions, unfortunately it will cost you more than the car is worth to have another transmision put in it.

DEFINITE LURCH IN 1ST AND 2ND GEAR,


This may apply. ...............................

Carry out the adaptation drive cycle road test:

Note: This process must be carried out in normal mode (not sports mode). On a flat road, the transmission fluid temperature must be above 60° C (140° f) and below 100° C (212° f) (vehicle at normal operating temperature will ensure that the transmission fluid temperature is above 60° C (140° f)).
9. Accelerate from rest with light throttle (do not exceed the upper rev limit in appendix 1). 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 shifts must occur with engine speed between the following limits:.
Note: Do not move the accelerator pedal during shifts.

• 3.0L VIN ALL 1800 - 2000 rpm
• 4.2L N/A Prior VIN M96321 1450 - 1600 rpm
• 4.2L N/A From VIN M963221550 - 1700 rpm

10. Continue to accelerate gently to 50 mph (80 km/h) so that transmission shifts into 5th gear.
11. Go into overrun and let the transmission shift down into 4th gear without braking.
12. Brake gently to a standstill and hold footbrake on for at least 15 seconds.
13. This process should be carried out at least five times.

On my dash pannel i have a light come on that looks like a round gear with an exclamation point in the center what is this and what does it mean


Car's transmission's gone into limp mode. "Limp Mode", is where your transmission's ECU keeps the trans from killing itself. Have you noticed a difference in acceleration? When you get on the highway are your RPM's higher than normal?

Limp Mode restricts your engine and transmission from working itself too hard to keep it from messing something up. Could keep it from getting to certain gears, keep it from revving too high.

It could be the transmission ECU (its computer). Then again it could be the transmission.
Take it to a mechanic or a friend with a ECU code reader. That will tell you a better idea of what could be wrong.

Good luck friend.

I have a 97 Saturn SL1 manual transmission. For a


well sounds like maybe the shift rail is bent, this will require the transmission to be removed and repaired, u will need a professional to check this for, the trans is a very expensive repair, so guessing is not a good idea, it can be some other problem, we are really just giving general info from here, hard to diagnose a problem we can't see 1st hand..

92 taurus GL lost upper gears


Hi, from your description, it sounds as though you have a valve body problem in the transmission. Burnt fluid could possibility mean deterioration of the clutch packs, which would shed material and then that material would be lodged in the super fine clearances of the valve body.

I would bet that is the oil pan of the transmission were removed, one would find a lot of foreign debris, indicating the demise of the transmission.

If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
