No you are looking for expensive solutions which it may not need ---start engine and make sure handbrake is on hard then select reverse and check the fluid level with the engine running ,i think you will find its about just under a litre short of transmission fluid but you cannot check it properly unless its in reverse with engine running ,and for good measure put a brick behind the drive wheels .

It sounds like you need transmission fluid and filter change. This is one of the most overlooked maintenance items. It should be changed every 50k (30k if you tow a trailer) The delay in engaging gear is sign that trans fluid is tired or REALLY cold. In cold weather this is a normal symptom on cold morning starts but goes away when warm. I'd get it changed and soon, before it turns into a $$$ repair.

Oldsmobile cutlass 1993 Wont engage when engine cold.


Check your transmission fluid level You will need to top it up if low. Low fluids mean that not only will the transmission be slow to respond but when it engages gear it does so with a bit of thump. If the fluid stays low this thumping of the gear changes will eventually shear off the input shaft. Also check the linkage located from beneath the gear shift to the transmission casing and adjust it if necessary. My guess is that topping up the transmission fluid to its proper levels will solve the problem without need for any adjustment

Won't go higher then 2nd gear, AT and Check Engine light have come on.


seems to be a shot gear pack or a faulty tcm that is not commanding the shift solenoids correctly. i would drop the pan and inspect the fluid. if you notice any metal fragments on the bottom of the transmission pan, this will confirm gear failure. you will need to rebuild in this case.

2000 Ford Taurus not getting gas


If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.

No passing gear


My car did (past tense) the same thing. The service engine light is flashing until you let off the gas because raw fuel is being dumped into the catalytic converter. The transmission won't shift because the converter is plugged. When you push the pedal to the floor the transmission computer holds the transmission in gear. Meanwhile the engine computer is raising the rpms. It will seem like a transmission problem but it is more likely a plugged catalytic converter. I had converter changed. The engine has A LOT more power, great acceleration and the transmission shifts perfectly.
