You may need a transmission fluid cooler.are you towing anything when it quits shifting? or starts slipping? if you are towing anything at all,i suggest you add the fluid cooler to the system.a very simple add on that you can purchase at autozone,advance auto,nappa,motor products.just about any auto parts stores nation wide can assist you with the transmission fluid cooler. if by chance that you're not towing anything and the transmission quits shifting gears automatically,but you can shift from 1st through 3rd by manually shifting gears with your shifter on the column by starting out in 1st and then 2nd,it shifts manually,then 3rd you shift it manually and it shifts fine and does'nt slip. you may have a bad modulator valve on the side of your transmission which is vacum operated,there may be a vacum line off,or the modulator valve may have went bad.thank you for choosing fixya.com

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you haven't replaced the transmission fluid recently then now is the time. If the fluid is burnt, the transmission tends to fail specially on hot temp. Please do check the transmission fluid first as a first course of action.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Why wont my 700r4 transmission shift into 3 or 4 gear? it shifts fine from one and two.


I would start by checking the fluid level and it wouldn't hurt to change the trany filter in the trany pan. You can get thoughs kits at the auto parts store. Make sure you buy enough fluid to fill the trany after filter replacement.

have your transmission filter change this is actaully a easy task if you know the basics all you have to do is remove the bottom pan from the trany the filter pops in and out just make sure you get the right trany fluid and put the right amount back in if you go to the parts place they can tell you exactly what kind of fluid to use also dont forget your gasket it will cost you about 30 to 60 dollars to fix it according to your location

2002 Sunfire No Reverse


the reverse is the first thing to go out in your transmition. Check trani fluid while car is hot and idling in park on level surface if needed add trani fluid. If problem persists sometimes replacing the transmision screen may enable the reverse usually and new trani is needed.

Have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and repair any codes.More than likely the trans needs a rebuild.If the fluid smelled burnt,then obviously clutches or bands are burnt inside the trans.Changing the fluid just got rid of the smell,whatever is burnt is still hurnt.It is best to stop driving the vehicle,as continuing to drive it will just cause more damage to whatever is damaged.Those transmissions are prone to pump problems too.
