The transmission temperature sensor is part of the transmission range switch it is located on the left side of the transmission case, it is the switch assembly that is mounted right behind the shift lever.

if the sensor is bad it should set a code in the PCM before you replace the switch assembly have the codes checked, auto zone will do this for you at no charge.

it could save you from replacing something that is not the problem.

let me know if there is any thing else i can do for you.

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.

Hyundai elantra periodically will shift hard from second to third gear and then will not shift into overdrive. the check engine light will come on. if i shut off the engine and restart it will shift...


I'm not that user, but go to Autozone and have them scan your computer for the code to your check engine light. It will point you to which sensor to replace, as this is likely your culprit. There are two speed sensors which are critical to transmission shifting on this car. The one I'm familiar with is on the passenger drive axle, but when mine went out (I have a 2001 Elantra as well) I didn't have any of these issues you describe. I don't know where the other sensor is, but that's where I'd suggest starting. Get it fixed quickly though, the web-boards I've read warn that these symptoms can be pretty ******* this little transmission. Good luck!

It is not anything with the transmission itself. it is your throttle position sensor, sometimes after driving at a steady speed and then coasting it loses its mind a little. You get the trac light and then it wont shift properly unless you shut the car off and restart it then everything is ok because the computer resets. It is fairly easy to replace.

The shift solenoids are INSIDE the transmission. If your Check Engine light is on or if your O/D light is flashing, then you have to scan your computer system to find out what the problem is.

2004 maxima - transmission stuck w/engine shut off


It sounds like a tork conveter lockup switch, have the transmisson serviced oil and filter changed then and add Lucas transmisson treatment to help smooth out hte shifting pattern and stop the problem if there was drag on the clutches it may have stalled out.

Slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear


Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.

Transmission Speed Sensor Inconsistency


Check the 10 wire connector going into the transmission for water or corrosion. This could cause inadvertant shifting but would also probably set the check engine light. The throttle position sensor could also cause this. Speed sensors screw into the transmission from the outside and would cause a limp in condition where it wouldn't shift out of second gear.
