You need to see if you have vss sensor at the computer. you can read this at the ecm with a scanner that reads live data. you should have a code in the computer you might be able to retrieve it at a part store like auto zone for free.

Change tranny fluid 1993 Chevy pickup drive only gear now


You may need a trans shop to take a look. Often times changing the fluid and filter on a vehicle thats over 15 yrs old causes more problems than it solves. Draining the fluid and changing the filter removes particles that were keeping the clutches and bands working. Something could have clogged up one of the ports on the valve body too.

My 03 ford windstar would not shift gear at all, goes into drive but wont shift from first to second


Check the transmission fluid and make sure it is both at the correct level and that it is not burnt smelling or brown. It should be a reddish color. A fluid flush and transmission filter change may be in order.

My chevy cavalier will shift into 2nd but no further


The dipstick on late model GM products is sealed with a Big Red Cap. It is near the firewall in the middle of the car. There are many reasons why the transmission will not shift into drive but the most common is the fluid filter inside the transmission. The owners manual says the fluid is supposed to be changed several times during the life of the car. If it were mine I would get it to a transmission shop soon.

needs trany work, when a tranny is low on fluid it will not shift into high gears. For some reason your transmission is not properly lubracating.

Shifts at 700 rpms


Check transmission fluid level. Sounds like your fluid is really low. If you have a lot of K the tranny oil and filter should be changed.
