    Same thing happened to my 2000 A6 yesterday.  I was pulling out of a parking spot and the car just shut off.  I started back up and now it wont shift into 5th gear and the triptonic shifting will not engage.  I have a feeling this is going to be expensive.  What did you do to fix it?
    Thanks

Why is my transmission shifting down to third on hills while on cruise control when it never used to?


You will need to give specifics of your car, meanwhile I think it is normal, because when ascending, it is only normal for your vehicle to slow down, so a quick response by the accelerator is given to the need to maintain the speed which will in turn trigger the kick-down in ur tranny and send it to the 3rd gear, u will also notice that after it stabilises, the gear will shift into 4th and 5th smoothly.

How i fix the p0730 and p0735 in range rover 2006


Possible causes of OBD code P0730
- Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid - Shift solenoids - Shift solenoids harness or connectors - Transmission mechanical problems - Transmission hydraulic control circuit The Error code is generally activated on detection of the following conditions: The TCM has detected that the transmission is trying to mechanically shift to a lower gear than intended

Possible causes of OBD code P0735
- Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid - Shift solenoids - Transmission mechanical problems - Transmission hydraulic control circuit The Error code is generally activated on detection of the following conditions: P0735 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 5th gear position even if electrical circuit is good.

Replaced clutch and now won't shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear


if it worked before why a new clutch,,,(context wins, here/??????)
ok, so you the clutch is failing,
you never posted the symtoms, not really
does car start in gear with clutch depresses, or start to move
does car take off in 1st ?
or is it just moving fast issues>????
cant up shift, cant down shift
hard to shift. (blocks)
grinds.

my wild guess, based on no input is the clutch linkage,
was never adjustED
the side kicks (not sport 1.8L) all have
cable clutches, and the 1 inch rule stated here.
i bet you didnt adjust it or the linkage splines are damaged.
or the pedal is cracked , caused by bad cable.
always replace the cable first. is it breaks other things if not.

I'm missing a switch on top my manual transmission on 91 geo tracker, that I was told that it was a 5th gear switch... can't find anything to show this. Is there such a switch?


Not sure what you mean by "switch" but shifting from 4th gear to 5th gear is the same motion as shifting from 2nd gear to 3rd gear.

Does Shift solenoid A&B control shifting into 5th gear on an automatic transmission?


First check the transmission MIL code , that will tell you if it is the Over Drive lock solenoid mal functioning , Do a tranny oil change with filter ,then replace fifth gear pressure solenoid , when you are there already .

5 speed manual transmission wont stay in 5th gear ,


can be lots of things,,, 4wd or 2wd, must i guess that?

let me guess, easy, and cheap first. ok? no need to go hog wild on guessing, at your expense ,no?>



  1. all vitara/tracker/sidekicks, all have the 2 plastic fittings in the shift box, go, well, to dust, or crack, and then the shift lever bounces and goes out of gear or in fact was never fully in 5th gear, detents.


  2. loose bottom rear transmission mount, (beat to death)


  3. shift rails failing, (detent failure (springs and balls)


  4. burned up fork on 5th gear, due to running trans dry. or near or GL4 fluild looks like, tar and metal filings ; ever consider do ing the service on that, drain and fill, running it on 24year old gear lube?


  5. the 2 front rubber plugs love to fall out (glued in) and then GL4 slowly is lost and gears/bearings and forks are wrecked.


  6. bad 5th gear bearing, rear.


  7. bad 5th gear front bearing. if flops about, and jumps out of gear.


  8. 5th gear synchro ring, broken, causing ill fitting 5th gear DOGS








bearing 30 and 31 are the 2 bearings mention above.

the last guy with 5th failing gear 35 , spins were wrecked.

running trans near dry,. expensive fix. with new cluster 26



see plastic 27 below.

that page even shows how to run and shift trans with extension housing off, to prove the box is good or bad, such a deal , no ?

My 2005 lincoln ls feels like it is going in and out of 4th & 5th gear expecially when traveling on an upgrade at a speed 75- 80.


Common problem..we keep ours in drive..4th when traveling in hilly areas because tranny keeps shifting into overdrive...5th. I know they should not shift like this but if you try that it will solve your shifting problem without spending hard earned dollars. :) hope that helps.

Overdrive factors


When the car is just cruising along at approx.50+ MPH push the O/D button. You should feel the gears change higher and if you have an RPM guage then it should drop as well to fewer RPMs. This would be normal driving conditions. O/D will not kick in until the last regular gear (3rd or 4th depending on model)  had been shifted into. O/D automatically kicks out when slowing down and the transmission shifts to a lower gear. Thus the O/D has no function at slower speeds/gears and does not need to be shifted ( on or off ) except in the very first example given here.
