Could be a bad shift selenoid to low fluid, possible a band slipping or a plugged filter, there are several reasons this can happen. Best bet is to have a tranny shop look at it and give you an estimate. Usually they want to rebuil your transmission, but if you get one or more estimates and they are for the same problem you can decide if you want to rebuild or move on. Thanks

Could be low on fluid, trans need serviced and filter changed (which will make it act like low fluid) or the drive band is worn and needs adjusted or replaced if to worn.

SOURCE: trans doesnt shift into third gear

If the check engine light is on as well, the van may be stuckin "limp in mode" which keeps the transmission from causing internal damage. Aside from that check the fluid level and condition. Fluid should not be excessively dark or smell burnt. If fluid is not the issue, it needs to be checked by your dealer or independent shop

Why doesnt my 1988 98 oldsmobile shift into third gear


If it is a manule trans then you need to shift it sooner. And for the reason it will not go into third gear is the gear could be gone or the saycronizer is bad. You will have to put in a new trans or get this one fixed in order to get third gear.

The car starts right up perfect its just when you start going it shifts from first well, then in second and third gears it revs really high before shifting tothe next gear, it doesnt seem to shift well, it...


Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level. You could also drain and replace the trans fluid to see if this solves the problem. Changing the fluid is considered regular maintence, and will not hurt a thing. The trans will benifit from fresh fluids in the long run also.

When it shift from third gear to second gear it makes an abrupt shift. This problem is only from third to second gear, the other gears shift nice and quiet. The transmission is new only 3 months old.


Hopefully this Transmission is still under warranty?
If its a stick the shifter or schronizers could be the culprit. If the vehicle is an automatic,shift solenoid, shifter, problems in 2nd and 3rd circuitry (band or clutch not releasing properly ),manual shift valve .
Take it back to whom ever did the rebuild or transmission work tell them the problem .
Business is so demanding these days they will probably do the right thing.

My transmission slips going through second gear if i get my foot in it just a little bit, and it doesnt always go into reverse. if i shift into reverse and it doesnt shift, i have to shift to neutral then...


this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

Shifting lever doesnt want to come out of park


This is a problem that occurs in many Honda's. Inside the shifter is a cable that is connected to the button to release the shift lock so you can shift into a gear. This cable become frayed and can eventually brake, which makes it hard to shift. The only solution is to replace the shifter either with a new OEM from Honda (very expensive) or get a good used one from your local recycle yard.
