A probe check is a check of the wiring that goes to the trans to see if no wires are broken.your problem mite be the torque converter solonoid.

It sounds like the mechanic didn't properly adjust the inhibitor switch and transmission control cable.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

One thing that can cause this is a faulty torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty, the shifting of the vehicle fails. One good reason why it only shifts on 2 gears. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My shifting is skipping gears in my 1993 dodge ram 250 conversion van. My mechanic doesn't know why. I think it might be something that connects to the transmission. donna_rdly@yahoo.com


First thing you will need to do is change the transmission fluid and filter. You may have metal shavings inside your transmission pan blocking the filter kit and this would cause your vehicle to skip gears. Try installing the new fluid and filter kit first. Since you will have the pan off, replace the A and B shift solenoid if the new filter kit and fluid don't stop your transmission from skipping gears
