2007 chevy colorado. Auto Transmission clunked during a couple of shifts then will only drive in second gear. Limp mode?? Has reverse, will drive in 1, 2,3, and d but in second gear. Got codes checked came...


Seam like transmission fluid is low.
-Start the engine, let it run for 10 minutes to normal temperature . Do not turn it off and check transmission fluid. If it's low add more fluid to full indicator. And try again.


Good Luck

Code p0734 I just replaced eng. and trans. now have this code.


Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit Tech notes Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary. When is the code detected? P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good. P0734 NISSAN Description This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.
