The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.


is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

2000 nissan sentra..........shift to first and gear rough but won't go past third any answers


If the clutch is good and no air in the hydrolic system, your synchronizers are most likely going bad.

Won't shift properly


Your probably pulling OBD Code P0758, just like mine is. Ive changed the trans in a customers car now 3 times with the same result. Hard shift into rev and 2 but no third gear. I believe its the TCM or wiring harness. Check to have the TCM Completely flashed and re-written by the dealer, this may help, if Not replace the TCM is my only other options, because I do not believe that 3 transmissions have been bad.

Tranmission won't into shift into D stays in 2nd. gear speed odmetor don;t work


Hi...sounds like you need to have your 3-2 shift solenoid in the transmission replaced. Go to a local Auto Zone auto parts store near you and ask them to check you computer codes to see if this solenoid shows up. They do not charge for this service.

I have a 2000 Ford Expedition (Eddie Bauer), 5.4 with 65,000 miles. It has recently started having a hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear in a slow acceleration. I have serviced the trans filter and fluids,...


You should change trans & power steering fluids
every 30,000 miles on all vehicles,if you don't from
when the vehicle was new,you will have problems

Changing the trans fluid only restores the heat removal
properties,it does not fix a single thing, at all

The shift stratagy is determined by several things

Check that the TPS Sensor is working without worn
spots inside it.

No adjustments to make

You could have the sensors checked with a scanner
while driving it.

You have a delayed 1-2 shift

The are servos that apply bands etc,I think
in the end you will be pulling the trans to rebuild
it,as you will be chasing several possibilities, that I
believe will be hardened internal seals from time,
wear & mostly heat

You didn't mention mileage or other past issues
with the trans etc or if your the second owner
etc

They don't normally go 11 years

My 1994 Subaru Legacy Touring (Turbo) Wagon is not shifting properly when taking off. It does not shift until 3500 rpm at 20 mph. The initial shift should be around 2000 rpm. All other gears seem...


Hi,
The 1st>>2nd shift on the Subaru 4EAT automatic transmission can be more abrupt, but 3500 is too high.
Is there any delay when shifting from Park to Drive?
Does the Power light flash on startup? If it does, you can pull the codes by following these instructions.

This trans has 'bands' that can be adjusted. I'm not 100% sure they affect the 1st>2nd gear shift, but maybe they need adjusted.

Take a look @ ultimatesubaru.org/forum and http://bbs.legacycentral.org. 2 sites dedicated to Subarus.

Good luck,
Td

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.
