You probaly need a new trany and some one might have put in the wrong kind of fluid for it either way you have to either rebuild or get a new one

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Transmission slip


Check the level of the Transmission fluid. Could be low enough that when you are on a hill it doesnt cover the intake

Coming to stop sign by putting break gear slips then return to park move to drive runs. second as i drive in curves slips but as give gas enough continues running.


Just to make sure I got this right. If you come to a stop, the car won't pull again unless you put it in park? Then, if you start into a curve, the transmission starts to slip unless you give it more gas? This could be signs of a bad torque converter, failing fluid pump (not as likely), or burnt/low transmission fluid level. Check the transmission fluid after the vehicle has been driven (warm engine), leave it running, and on a level surface. Check the level twice and take the lowest reading.

2000 ford explorer rolls while in park


park on level ground engage emergeny brake and chock wheels
locate transmission cable at trans linkage on side of trans. loosen the
cable clamp push cable+linkage arm all the way into the park posistion
tighten the cable clamp it also helps to have an extra pair of hands up
top to move shift lever so you can inspect it from below also make
sure linkage arm is not slipping on the shaft that go's into the trans.
if you have to jack it up for extra room please use a JACK STAND.
if you need help locating any of the parts mentioned stop by any
auto parts store and pu a haynes repair manual for your trk. it will
give the step by steps and diagrams for this job + many that may
come up in the future.
hope this helps any other ? gimme a shout good luck

Have a 1989 cutlass ciera that rolls back a little when put in park. What could that be? 2nd issue is it stalls when you come to a stop.


the rool back is down to slack in the drive line,
ie prop and back lash in the diff, there will also be some back lash in the gear box as well, this is completly normal so dont worry about it,, however you should all ways keep the foot drake on till you have put the habd brake on then and only them slip it into park as if you keep letting it rool back and stoping in park you could snap of the park claw inside the auto gear box, that a pricy repair, so please hold the brakes on before you go into park,,,
as for the stalling part,,, how fast is the tick over when warm and in gear (in drive with foot brake on)
if its less that 850 rpm thats the problem,,, auto's realy dont like a slow tick over, there is a lot of drag on an auto box, at tick over it should hold your car from rolling back on a slight hill or even drive up it with out you putting any power on to make it pull away, they also creep forwards in gear by them selfs, thats normal too,,safe,happy driving!!!!!!!

Transmission and Gear shift Indicator


It is flashing to indicate a serious fault has occured in the transmission, the first thing to do is have the transmission control module tested for a trouble code, this will lead you in the right direction to repair the problem.
