When driving for several miles, automatic transmission clunks into first gear after stop. Only happens afterseveral stop and goes, usually after 6 to 10 miles.

Go back to the mechanic and ask them to check the throttle position sensor and to connect a scanner to car computer, to check if it returns any error code related to this problem.

My ford escort quit moving in the middle of an intersection. Engine was still running, but car quit. I hgeard a "clunk" as I was turning. what could have happened?


Most likely one of the CV [constant velocity] universal joints on one of the drive shafts broke.
If it is an automatic transmission, something in the transmission may have broken; but automatic transmissions usually give other symptoms like slipping before actually breaking with a clunk.
If it is a manual transmission, it could be the clutch or the transmission that went clunk.

Are you sure your fluid level is correct? When they don't shift until warmed up,that is usually dirt or low fluid.
I would get a coupla cans of SEA-FOAM trans. treatment,NOT the motor treatment. Follow directions and sit in the car shifting it thru all gears many times. Take it out on freeway and kick it down to make it shift down and let up suddenly to make it upshift. Do this several times.
If it starts working for you,do a filter/fluid change really soon. I have saved them this way,but it's about 50/50 that you'll need a PROPER rebuild or replacement.There is dirt in there somewhere or the pump is giving up on you. don-ohio

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

2003 Highlander 6 cyl. 109,000 Miles Excellent Care and Condition Sometimes, not always, when I am slowing down and about ready to stop I hear a clunk sound from underneath, like from the transmission....


after 100,000 miles you have wear in the transmission and rear end gears and bearings, it is not normal but it is not a real problem that can cause a breakdown, to fix this you could spend upwards of $3000.00, so in my opinion just live with it.

Check the universal joints in the drive shaft to rear axel. 120,000 miles, its time for replacement. Safety hazard exist, check soon. Also transmission filter should have been serviced at 60,000 miles. Its time.
