1999 mitsubishi eclipse automatic transmission wont shift into 4th gear.


First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..

If not.. Check ALL your fuses..

If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..

If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..

1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)

2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..

Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..

Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..

My 1995 nissan quest overdrive light comes on when i start it and it wont go in drive but will 2nd gear, sometime on can turn the van off and restart and it will go in drive and shift ok but it shifts...


Sounds like the sensor for first gear.
The transmission comes with a shift sensor for each shift: if 4 shift, 4 sensor (including reverse).
Have somebody check the sensors and the cpu for the tranny. They go hand to hand.

Today I checked and added some tranny fluid to my 98 pontiac sunfire and now im having trouble shifting when i didn't before i checked it. what could be the problem?


as long as you didn't overfill the transmission, it shouldn't be giving you any shifting problems, unless , for some strange reason , there is a air blockage, and this is unusal, "next start the car up, and then let it run , while you pull out the transmission dip stick, and let it run for a very short time, while you go through the gears with the gear selector , then replace the dipstick, and re check the fluid level again, and then drive the car, and then see how it is shifting. also, make sure that the transmission fluid that you put in the car was the right kind for your car, " it should be dexron transmission fluid.

Make sure the fluid level is correct on the dipstick as the clutch packs will often take a while to fill with fluid and you may need to add more fluid
