Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Hello, My transmission slips in 2nd and 3rd gear. It feels like it slips. the RPMs go up and then it finally gets into gear. I cant hear anything wrong. I am wondering if it is a computer problem more then a gear problem. Be fore i take it in i would like some advise. It mostly happens on hills. It also seems to have a hard time down shifting when i pull up to a stop sign. It doesnt happen all the time but enough to make me concerned. Thank you

    What you stated sounds a lot like "flaring" generally caused by low internal pressure. Low pressure generally is caused by worn internal seals. Other problems follow as valving often gets contaminated by debris shed by the clutches as they slip. One thing certain is that the longer you wait to have it looked at the more damage will happen.
    Any reputable transmission shop will do a test drive using a scanner, then do a quick internal examination. That is the correct way to actually have any idea of the exact nature of the problem.

I have a 91 volvo 740 I am having a problem with the transmission possibly. Its an automatic with only about 150k miles. It starts and takes off in 1st and 2nd but is sluggish and feels like its switching...


check the oil level of the transmission
that transmission does have an overdrive relay
that relay may be faulty

get the transmission serviced and if found in bad condition
cheapest fix is
source a good used automatic transmission and have that fitted in


cost of a full rebuild on these transmission is more than the volvo is worth
its a lot of km./miles
sounds like the third /overdrive part of the transmission
is slipping or worn

Transmission will stay in 2nd gear


Hi!!

When was the last time you service the tranny?

Fluid should be topped to level, pinkish in color and no burnt smell.

This happened two months ago; my cousin's Intrigue was slipping on 2nd n 3rd when it reached 2000 rpms. and some times when trying to take off suddenly, Have to released the gas a little and you could feel it engaging again.

Solution: Changed Transmission fluid and filter and added one bottle of RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip and Leak Repair I got at AutoZone ($10), It stopped the slipping after driving the car a couple of miles, you can actually feel more traccion in all gears and my cousin says is even giving more miles X gallon. He drives the car about 80 miles a day and is been over two months since. It may sound like a commercial ad but that stuff works great!!!

Rate this answer and keep me posted!! Good Luck!!

Transmission on my 99 T&C hesitates at times


Its the begining of the ruins of the torque converter. Its stator is letting go before it has enough time to build torque. Pretty soon you'll smell the ATF start to heat up.
You'll get a check engine light and will only be able to drive in 3rd and reverse. Take it to a Transmission repair shop. Why waite to be stranded.

When driving in drive it goes threw 1st and 2nd then slips like it's in neutral when driving in 3rd gear


Unfortunately that is the first signs of transmission failure. It will get worse from there. The clutches in your transmission are starting to slip and you will probably start to notice this in 2nd gear before to much longer. The hardest strain on a transmission is actually when it is in high gear because the rpms are so low. Sorry for the bad news. The good news is that you can find these transmissions in a lot of salvage yards and most are already removed. If you have a 2 wheel drive and you do your own work then I would recommend buying a Haynes manual at Advanced Auto Parts or Auto Zone. Haynes will guide you step by step in the removal and replacement of your tranny. Good Luck, Roger

Transmission flares


NO: 43-37
DATE: 2-25-2003
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
S60: 062000-152000
V70: 116000-230000
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
DESCRIPTION:
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.

1995 chevy blazer transmission will not let truck shift out of second when in drive


Normally while driving in overdrive (4th gear) you will feel it start slipping and finally slide into third gear. Then 3rd gear slips out into second, and you will never see 3rd or 4th gear again. I'm guessing this was the problem? If so its time for an overhaul

Transmission slips gears and clunks around after about 20 minutes of driving. i just pasted over my warranty


you will need the transmission repaired, this is a common problem, sorry that it happened to you after your warranty. they may still fix it under warrenty as this is a major problem, with this trans.
if you are not to far over warranty they may play with numbers to get you covered.
sometimes!
other wise it is about $2300+ repair.
