Transmission trans would have problem shifting from first to second. Once it shifted everything would be fine until I would turn off truck, then it would go through same thing. Now I cant get it to shift from first at all.

I would say you lost a band in the transmission. Even if it's something less expensive...it's still a hassle because you will have to take it to a shop to work on. Automatic transmissions are way too complicated to rebuild in your garage and require a buttload of specialty tools and measuring equipment.

Hi, I have a 1999 Mercury Villager with the 3.3 Litre Nissan motor. Just recently my cousin replaced the timing belt, and distributor. When we got the van back it was having transmission problems. When you...


I would start by making sure the Trans Fluid level is correct. If the level is good, it sounds like your internal pressures are leaking down, and that is why it slips out of gear. Which means you have internal trans issue which would require the trans to be most likely removed and repaired.

Thanks Jay!

I have a 1998 sebring the transmission go in first not in second


We had a 1999 Sebring that would go up through the gears and shift fine until you stopped at a stop sign. Then it would hang in first until you turned it off then back on. Then it would shift normally until you stopped again. Turned out it was a bad speed sensor (not the one for the speedo). Speed sensor is located on the transmission and several years ago was a $20.00 part. I'm not sure if this your problem or not, just thought I'd share this with you.

Good Luck

I am far from a trans. specialist but this sounds like a foreign body (dirt maybe) got in the valve body.

MY TRANS WONT SHIFT INTO THIRD GEAR UNTIL IM DOING 45 MPH IT SHIFTS FINE IN FIRST AND SECOND GEAR WHEN IT IS IN SECOND GEAR AND WONT SHIFT TO THIRD I CAN PUT IT IN N AND BACK TO OVERDRIVE THEN IT SHIFTS.


Most likely your shift cable (from the selector to the transmission) is worn, maybe needs lubrication. Mine had a similiar problem, but had to shift it into neutral and back up to get it in reverse. A new shift cable solved the problem.

John, this sounds like a valve hanging up in the valve body. The car shifts when the govenor pressure overcomes throttle valve pressure in this valve body.

What is the condition of the fluid? Is it at all dark or grey, does it smell burnt? It should be a nice light pink. If not, have the fluild and filter for the trans changed. This may take care of the problem.

If the oil is really burnt, you are at the end of the life of the clutches and you are looking at a complete trans rebuild. If the oil is ok, a trans shop should be able to take just the valve body down, clean it and eliminate the problem without overhauling the entire transmission

good luck
