Well when you are in cold weather and after a high mileage. The Transmission solenoids fails when its cold and they get stuck for a moment and all i can say is that you warm your car for a while before you leave your house and thats good for the engine too and aslo will keep your car running for a long time. Good luck

1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport speedometer isn't working. Replaced speed sensor and the output sensor. Also it's not shifting until driven for about 15 minutes and then it starts to shift normal.


I have the same shifting problems with 3 Toyotas.
I have not found a cure, but here is a suggestion.
Likely the slow shifting is sticking valves or pistons in the transmission.
Try to have the transmission serviced, by changing the fluid and the filter, if it has one.
I should recommend you go to a "highly spoken of " local transmission shop.
I have had really bad results with national brands, who are very determined to overhaul your transmission for a few thousand dollars.
Ask your local shop about the speedometer problem.
God bless your efforts.

2000 MONTERO SPORT SOMETIMES THE TRANSMISSION WONT GO IN REVERSE, NOT ALL THE TIME? \r\n ALSO, STARTS RIGHT UP, WHEN YOU PUT IT IN GEAR DIES UNLESS YOU DRIVE WITH BOTH FEET TO KEEP THE GAS PUSHED DOWN.


Is it a manual shift? If so you may need more clutch fluid.If automatic make sure you have enough brake fluid so you're able to put car in gear.Also make sure you have enough transmission fluid.As for the both feet on the accelerator....sounds like you need a new fuel line.Also make sure there is no water or sediments in gas tank.Try gas treatment to help with that.If you do end up having a transmission problem replacing it will be costly and you might as well just sell her and get another vehicle.Good Luck!

Montero Sport, Automatic transmission fluid change


Ok, Mobil atf is more of a universal fluid, where Mitsubishi atf would be specifically formulated to be used in their products. Personally I would use the Mitsubishi as it is brand specific, but you can use either one with more than likely no problems.

My 2000 Toyota 4runner V6 125k miles automatic transmission started slipping on cold starts especially in the morning. After starting up, putting in drive and pressing the gas pedal first gear doesn't...


Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode


I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
