Most transmission problems are caused by the transmission oil getting old and sticky. There are valves in the valve body that are precision fit and need good lubrication to work properly. When problems start they are usually caused by a valve getting stuck and not moving into the position it is suppose to be in.

I recommend a flush to remove all the old fluid with new. There are many auto repair shops that will perform a flush, but you want to be sure they run a cleaner through your transmission first, as that will clean out the sticky old deposits that are causing the valves to stick. If they do not offer a cleaner you can do it yourself. I recommend BG's transmission cleaner. It comes in a dual pack of cleaner before the flush and conditioner after the flush. You can often find this cleaner on eBay or Amazon, as most auto part stores don't carry these products. BG sells their products to the shops that perform the flush, so they are not easily available in stores, just auto repair shops.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)

Transmission wont engage gear


i know this is a very old post but to lance birch,your comment could cost alot of unneeded money, your shift solenoids could be bad which is an easy fix as you drop the pan and your right there,your throttle position sensor could be bad which is an easy fix,the fluids could be low or bad which is also easy, and i could be missing more things

Its an 01 grand caravan sport sometimes speedometer needle moves to 10mph when put into drive and the van is not moving when this happens trans wont shift out of second or third and when it doesn't do it...


Problem is either in the speed sensor and/or instrument cluster. My '01 suffered same issues before it other issues killed it. But, when you do go to shift into gear hold brake and allow it to "swing" until it settles down. This will help with it trying to shift thru the gears and the "hurky jerky".

Shifting gears wont go, it wont get in or fit right on the dot


? Que? Do you mean that it doesn't select or move freely? Gets too notchy maybe? Has this car done alot of miles? Or just a good lot of gear shifts? All Diahatsu and Yaris have horrible gear selections.. what you COULD do is strip down the gear shift, check the ball on the end of the shifter for scoring, put in a decent grease (into the ball reccess) or sometimes there is heavy wear on the metal part of the shifter, just above the ball, if so, weld back up or if no welder try chemical metal. This will also have the effect of a shorter gear change. ok?

The only thing cheaper is to drain the fluid and replace with the correct fluid and ask the Parts Salesman of what additive might work best in your transmission. Check the Fluid in the Clutch Cylinder. Bleed it after it is topped off.This could help.

Grand cherokee wont shift out of first gear


That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.
