I have a 1996 chevy tahoe, I am having problems with my first gear. We taking off from a stop first gear will not kick in until accelerating to 3,000 rpms and letting go of the gas pedal first gear then...


I think you mean the first shift which is second gear, the trans starts off in first.The problem is either a resticted solenoid or solenoid feed filter( small screen in valve body plate) or the lining on the 2-4 band is just about gone.I would recomend a good computer diagnosis and not just a code pull at a parts store to make sure all the engine inputs are within range such as throttle position sensor and map sensor.These transmission are prone for failure and it is now 15 years old.Good luck, let me know if I can help.

I have a 94 gmc sierra with 350 that has problem shifting to 2nd


Your problem likely resides with the hydraulic valve that operates the band for second gear, or lack of hydraulic pressure in the transmission. If the actuator in the transmission that operates second gear is getting sticky, then it will cause this. A filter change and flush may help, but it's likely time to start looking for someone to tear down your transmission, or replace it.

My 2004 for F-150 Herittage only has 32,000 miles on it. I wont work in reverse and wont shift out of first gear. What could the problem be. The shop where its at cant figure it out, they said its not the...


There could be several but It should have 100,000 mile warrenty on the drive train so take it to the dealer Your truck is notthe first one I have seen on here with this problem and always assumed it was a transmisson problem. I ned to know how they know it's not the transmisson? did they remove the shift lingange offf the transmisson and see if it would shift thru the gears ? Also Ford has it's powertrain control module mouned in the transmisson so this does not seem right to me, ask them if they took the linkage off and tested the control module and get back to me.

I have just bought a 51 plate a3 1.8. Sometimes it wont go into third and fifth gear as it should. When trying to change into these gears it doesn't crunch it just won't let you put it in gear. The best...


The possiblities that come to mind are
1 Bad synchro in transmission 2 bad bearing(s) in transmission input shaft.   3 Bent shift linkage or shift fork (I doubt this, but it's possible)
Only number 3 is relatively cheap.  I'd go back to where/who you bought the car from, if it was that way when you bought it, and ask them to help.  It can't hurt.

Using force is NOT the solution.  If the syncros are bad, until you get them replaced, you'll be better off to determine the RPM difference between 2&3 gears (maybe 800-1000?) and also 4&5 gears (maybe 500-800?) and learn to put a modest amount of effort at exactly the time the rpms fall into that diffference.  
Example Say the difference between 2nd gear at 3500 RPM and 3rd gear is 1000 RPM, then when you take it out of 2nd for an upshift to third,  delay until the RPMs are just getting to 2500. If you are on a budget and can't fix the transmission (it's going to be big bucks) you may find you can get pretty good at this.    It is possibly to shift a car this way without even using the clutch, although I don't recommend this and it takes a great deal of practice and luck.
While you have this problem, don't downshift into 3rd,  just run the RPMs down in 4th (say to 2000 or less) until you can shift into 2nd at an acceptable RPM. The least amount of shifting you can do until you resolve this the better.
Another choice until you can fix it, is to just run up the RPMs in 2nd and then shift to 4th, and then forget you have a fifth gear.  This is much better than forcing, it's possible to do more damage by forcing. 
Is it hard to get into 3rd from 4th AND 2nd?
