Where is the passing gear on a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante


'Passing gear' is a term that means the transmission is down-shifted to a lower gear (e.g., from 5th gear to 4th gear) for improved acceleration to pass another vehicle. There is no physical component called a passing gear in the transmission.
To engage the 'passing gear' with an automatic transmission should require nothing more than pressing the accelerator pedal down firmly. The transmission should downshift automatically to the next lower gear (sometimes it will downshift two gear ratios, depending on your speed and how far you depress the accelerator pedal).

Why does my truck only go into gear sometimes and no brake lights


Year/make/model?? Most probable cause of this would be a defective brake switch as this switch controls the brake lights as well as the shift release solenoid

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive


Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

My 1985 scottsdale 3/4 4x4 has no power in 3rd gear and will not down shift


check to make sure you have no vacuum leaks. u can use a cheap can of carburator cleaner and spray around the vacuum lines of the truck, if your truck starts idling up and changing, you have a leak then just replace the line. Older GM vehicles rely on Vacuum advances for the transmission and will not shift properly nor downshift if there is a leak. a lot of vehicles rely on vacuum to support many functions, mainly driveability as well as smooth running. there should be a vacuum line that runs near the rear of the transmission. also might want to check transmission fluid for the no power, cause even though you may have power in 1st and 2nd, 3rd gear is your main drive gear unless you have a 700R4 with automatic overdrive and it could be suffering from not enough fluid getting to the bands from the pump. also one more thing, check the downshift linkage cable the runs from the carburator to the transmission, make sure it is working, sometimes you can have a broken cable in the line and not even know it. hope this helps

if it has an automatic OD then more than likely it has a lock up tourqe, google where the connection is and unplug the lock up selnoid and see if that helps or downshift manually and see what it does!

Suzuki won"t shift into gear unless I turn the car off and put it into first


make your adjustment to clutch, see how that works, but start saving up for a new clutch, or just have your inspection mechanic, take a look @ it for you, make the adjustment, and he can remove a cover and inspect the condition of your clutch with his own eyes. its a lot easyier for him than you. then, you'll know for sure. good luck

WHY IS IT HARD FOR ME TO CHANGE FROM PARK TO DRIVE


There are a few possibilities:
There is a park-to-operate interlock feature on your truck. You must depress the vehicle brake pedal to move the shift lever from park to any other position. Sometimes the switch (the brake pedal switch) which provides this signal goes bad, sometimes making contact and providing the signal and sometimes working intermittently. You could have a frayed or broken wire thereabouts.
Sometimes the parking pawl on the transmission which engages the flywheel/flexplate needs adjustment. It is on the driver's side of the transmission. There is a threaded portion of the shift lever shank coming from the steering column or floor shifter with an adjustable nut on it.
Take a look at that, and I hope it helps.
