99 Continental has a 4.6 Ltr engine and AX4N automatic transaxle,which i have rebuilt hundreds of,in it's various configurations,early and late models.It started as an AXOD in the late 80's,and has worked it's way up to the latest version,the 4F50N.Regardless of the history of this trans,the common failures now are, torque convertor,and oil pump driveshaft,and the oil pump wiping out,which is a part of the valvebody assembly.This commonly causes the vehicle to just stop moving in ALL ranges,as all ranges require hydraulic pressure.Check the fluid level on the trans dipstick.If the level is extremely high in relationship to the crosshatch,where it's supposed to be,then the pump isn't pumping.A 0-300 psi pressure gauge can be hooked up to the trans,and the engine started,and hydraulic pressure can be checked.Also,as another diagnostic tool,before pulling the trans out,drop the trans pan and look for any evidence of parts failures,metal,plastic,etc..Also look to see that the filter isn't laying in the pan,it should be retained by the seal in the trans.

Hi,
If this is an automatic (as I think it is), then the variable drive chain is at fault.

This is basically a belt which moves between two opposed cones to provide the drive. No belt= No drive.

It could be it has exceeded it's limit of adjustment and is just slipping. It is a replacable item, so can be repaired in any garage specilising in automatic transmissions.

Other causes would be severe clutch disintegration/ wear , loss of the spring plate springs, or rarely - a broken input gear.

All of the above require removal of the transmission and overhaul.

I have a strong reverse in my 1998 blazer's auto transmission but no foward gears work. Do I need a complete overhaul or change the filter and solenoid?


After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.

Auto trans stop changing & no reverse. It never showed any warning signs


It's time for an overhaul. The reaction shell has stripped or broken the splines away and it is these splines that make the necessary connection for 2nd, 4th and reverse. Yes, you probably still have third gear, but have not gone fast enough for it to shift into third.

1985 dodge caravan 3 spd auto trans . there is a module in the front side of the transmission that has 4 pin plug in. the connecting wire is sagging a little and .... Suddenly I lost all but low gear and...


The module is most likely an electronic speed sensor. I doubt that it is to blame for the shifting failure.

Low and reverse gear sometimes share an adjusting band that would explain why they both still work. As for why the other foward gears aren't engaging here are my suggestions.

Make sure the fluid level is good.
Make sure the vacuum line is connected to the shift modulator if applicable.
Make sure tha the shift cable is correctly actuating the shift selector.
Drain the fluid, replace the filter and clean out the pan, install a new pan gasket reinstall the pan and fill with fresh fluid.

Beyond these procedures I suggest that you have it checked out by a technician.

Sudden noise, whining in 1st gear, reverse jerky


Sounds like your final drive pin in your differential broke causing the main spider pin to tear through the case.Catastropic damage.Check for severe fluid leak under car.If no signs of leaks,check dipstick for greyish blk colored fluid.If this is the case you will need to replace transaxle & flush trans cooler.hope this helps
