P 0733 code what does that mean

You could be more specific with the issue:
  • Transmission type (Manual/Automatic)?
  • How did this issue appear?
  • Does the car change gears normally?
Your car seems to be an automatic transmission model?
So the fault code is "Gear 3 Incorrect Ratio"

This means that you may have:
  • Low transmission fluid level or dirty transmission fluid
  • Faulty or dirty shift solenoids
  • Transmission mechanical problems
  • Transmission hydraulic control circuit issue

Vw jetta won t start and its stuck in third gear

Check with VW there is a recall on the transmission shift body. The pressure control valve is sticking. Assuming you have a automatic trans. the starting problem can and maybe do to a sticking valve also.

Try a can of Lucas Transmission Slip - 100M - see if that helps. Something is sticking in there. This might free it up.

2000 Volvo V70 (B5244S) - what transmission service/fluid needed

Do you have an Automatic tranny With 4 speed (AW4), or an Automatic With 5 speed (AW5) With a "Flush & Change" there is no reason to drop pan and change filter...the flush and change does it without removing any parts. I would stick with your "in-town guy"!

How can I checkthe transmission fluid on a 2004 525i,and how often should the fluid be changed?

If its automatic fluid should be changed every 45000 miles, Check at least once a month. ("Should have" a yellow dip stick handle sticking up).
If it's a stick shift then you have to pull the top fill plug on the side of the trans. It's better if you take it in some places will charge $129 - $200 to change fluid and flush trans and put a new filter in it. Not only that but you don't have to deal with the mess.

1992 Volvo 240 GL = shift problems

It sounds like linkage to me as well - jack car block to prevent fall and block tire - do on flat ground and track cable under car. I think you should start under hood where linkage joins transmission. I seem to recall a plate there to hold at this end . not that it is a yoke type movement in transmission. this must be always lubricated. Did you ever have car jump out of gear? was it ever stiff to shift and has car been sitting?
