My speedometer isn't working in my Acura mdx 2005 and it won't shift outta first gear ?!

the speedometer is more then likely due to a fauly speed sensor on the transmission, presuming your check engine light is on, try resetting ecu by removing battery cables for 5 mins, then plugging them back on battery, ensure you have radio code before doing so to avoid locking the radio if it is still the stock radio, if problem is not resolved check engine codes for possible fault shift solenoids, also ensure there is enough transmission fluid, to check turn the car on let run for 10-15 mins to warm up oil, block the wheels and place transmission in neutral and verify correct level of oil, if no codes present and oil at right level, suspect a faulty torque converter in the transmission.

Why is my car having trouble shifting gears, gets stuck changing gears, has a hot smell after it has been running for a while,has a running a noise after its been turned off for a while

Sounds like you need oil in your transmission, low pressure light for hydraulics. Get it checked right away or it could seize up.
Make sure all your fluids are checked both for levels and leaks.
Your brakes may need looking at too.

My 2001 vw jetta won't shift to second gear

run fault codes and look for a problem in the transmission. Check oil and coolant level as the light is a warning for both the engine and gear box and the failure to shift gears may be that the CPU has locked the vehicle in limp mode to restrict damage in the drive train units.

Gear shift stays in park and abs esp and asr lights on

1) try to use the self diagnose.
2) place ignition swtuch in the start position, the lights coming on
3) engine starts, the brake light sould turn off inmediately. the ABS ligth will illuminate for aprox 6 seconds.
4) test drive the vehicle at speed above 20mph for a few minutes. during the test the both test lights should remain off, if any one of the warninign light utron, take note of the condition.
5) stop the vechicle using the braking pressure.both light should remain offf during the stopping procedure.
60 place the gear selector in to PARK, and observe the warning lights, they should both be off.
God bless you

Vave gear /electrics kit to be replaced as recommended by authorised dealer. Car has run 69,000 kms. in India.Problem was gears not changing. Oil was changed but car on being driven remained in limp mode....

if your talking about the valve body and electrical shift plate for the transmission then yes those components can cause the vehicle to go into limp home mode and not let the vehicle shift gears. Generally the valve body is not able to be repaired just replaced. same goes for the electrical shift place.
