Cannot get gears untill engine is warm


assuming fluid is full to cold level is the color light red/pink ? If dark grungy and is same when hot - will need changing . GM trans oil loses its thickness - lubrication qualities due to heat / age etc. Ergo unwilling to engage gear / hold gear . Most cars have shift interlock meaning foot must depress brake too move gear shift = Nuetral safety switch receives pressure from brake pedal if it fails to recognize or is worn then trans will not want engage gear .

What can be the solution for my pajero gdi 3500 model 2000 does not engage the gear early morning?


Transmission fluid is on te base of the engine all settle up. Once the oil runs all over the transmission will work easily. I would make check and refill the oil on the transmission.
Until then, start ur engine and let it warm and pump for a minute until all the oil is washing all over and then go.

-sorry for my English but i hope that helps.

Transmission is sliping when warmed up, in all gears. Goes into all gears fine when cold.


Check transmission fluid level Hot in D. Over full will cause frothing and loss of pressure in the system. Have a transmission pressure test done . It may need a band and clutch pack adjustment.

96 ROVER DISC. Has strong reverse - won't engage any forward gears. Fluid seems full even when warm.


Make sure the 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn't slipped out of correct spot to get you moving forward.

1994 Buick Skylark, 138,000 mi.,V-6, auto trans. Car won't engage in gear until engine is warm. Engine must run 4-8 minutes until shifting successfully. Shift lever can be moved to all gears, but...


one thing ive warned my friends to never do and that is to never have your trans flushed cause you may have new fluids but what about the trans filter its old and iots there for that reason to keep dirt and metal; shavings from the bands so try having your oil and filter in the transmission replaced , pull your trans dip stick and on a white piece of paper put a drop of trans oil that you have in your trans at that very moment it should be redish pink but if its brown and smells really bad then the problem is in the oil and filter . change it before u have to replace the whole trans

Tranny stuck in 1st gear until it warms


It is usually the electronics of the transmission. If you don't have any other symptoms, you may be alright. If you are getting slipping in between shifts, delayed engagement when put in reverse or drive, these are signs that the internals are going bad.
