Check the fluid level. Also may be a clogged transmissiom filter, or the filter isn't seated correctly in the pan. I have had many of this type of problem come into the shop after having the fluid flushed on that type of Ford transmission. good luck.

What causes aChevrolet z71 to not shift into overdrive and take off in 2nd gear after I change my transmission out 5.3 liter motor with a 4l60e transmission 4-wheel Drive


If you are lucky, bad shift solenoid (common failed part) may cause it to start in second. Other problem of no overdrive (ie: no torque converter lockup) could be as simple as misadjusted brake pedal switch or TCC solenoid. Where did you get this apparently bad transmission?

4L60E Transmission wont shift into 2nd or Overdrive


Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.

The first thing you should have done is to have all the transmission fluid flushed, this may be due to worn out fluid friction modifiers causing torque converter clutch chatter.

Transmission over drive is causing the transmission to slip. When I take off the overdrive the transmission functions normally but it uses much more gas.


Roger, that doesn't even make a whole lot of sense to me. If the overdrive is causing the transmission to slip, wouldn't it also cause the fuel mileage to go down? Are you sure the transmission is slipping? Or is the transmission simply shifting in and out of overdrive? If it is, is it shifting at the proper speeds? Driving at around 40 - 50 Mph will sometimes make the transmission go in and out of overdrive repeatedly. This can be perfectly normal.

Have you checked your transmission fluid level?

Is your overdrive off light flashing? If the transmission is actually slipping the OD OFF light should be blinking at you to let you know there is a transmission problem. Either that, or the Check Engine light will be coming on. In either of these cases, you need to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes.

1999 chevy lumina doesn't shift into overdrive, why?


If it won't go into overdrive a speed sensor within the transmission may not be sending the shift signal to the transmission. Check fluid levels to make sure that's not causing the problem. Also, check that the fluid is red color and clean.

Transmission probably needs to be serviced at a reputable shop if you want this problem fixed.

I have a 1994 Olsmoblie Cutless Supreme LS, 3.1L V6 , front wheel drive, with 3 speed Torque Converter Lock-out type overdrive transmission. The car drives cold or hot fine until It goes up a hill or can...


First thing,

lets start with a transmission flush and filter change. then have you checked any of your vacume lines. A bad vacume line is the number one thing that causes any form of transmission mis shifting. When it gets warmed up the lines alow cracks to open up and mess up the function of the vacume line. Also you need to have the torque converter checked. You also need to have a computer scan on the vehicle. a bad sensor or coputer could cause any of these problems.

let me know what happens when you check these out.
