Well, I think that you will need to take apart the gear box and check for the drum gear shift!

It sounds like a broken shifter pawl spring. This part is inside the transmission and requires a teardown of the transmission. Not a simple job. Harley was having problems with them in the 5- speed transmission back in the '90's but I thought they had gotten that problem solved. There never was a recall as far as I know but I have replaced quite a few shifter pawl shafts. The spring is what returns the shifter back to it's "center" position between shifts. With the transmission in neutral, engine off, use your hand to gently push the shifter down to just before it shifts the transmission. Then let go of the shifter and see if returns back to the "center" position. Make sure the shifter or the shifter rod is not binding in any manner. If it will not return to center, I think this is your problem.

Good Luck
Steve

I have a 95 ford f150 i need to know why 3rd and fourth gear isnt working? And would it overheat if the tranny was going out


Most modern electronic controlled auto transmissions have shift solenoids located underneath the bottom pan. Remove pan and inspect for a solenoid coming apart. Easy to replace.

Why wont my 97 plymouth grand voyager shift into fourth gear at 40 mph?


Sticking valves. When is the last time you had the transmission serviced? Since it will shift when cold, I would suspect a valve body issue.

Worn thrust bearing and shafts. Strip the gear box, fit new thrust bearing shims and selector arm. Adjust as required. Reassemble and top up with fresh oil.

2000 harley davidson softail custom 3,500 miles on stock motor when in 3rd gear trying to downshift into second it goes by it right into nuetrual??? why its annyoing


It should not do this. Evidently, there is something amiss in the shifting portion of your transmission. I would try adjusting the shifter pawl first. This adjustment is not difficult but requires a specail tool with which to get onto the adjustet. The adjuster is on the left side of the transmission just forward of the shifter shaft lever. It is behind the outer primary which makes getting to it difficult without the special tool.

To check it, with the engine off, gently depress the shifter lever downwards like you are going to shift into low gear. Depress until you feel the shifter pawl engage the shifter drum cam and is beginning to shift the transmission into gear. In other words depress the shift lever down until you feel it bump but don't shift it into gear. Then, do the same thing lifting the lever up like you are going to shift into second. Does the lever travel the same distance downward as it does upwards. If not, the shifter pawl needs adjusting.

If this is not the problem, you may have to remove the transmission top cover. With the cover off, you can see the adjustment of the shifter pawl. You may have a problem with the shifter pawl itself or the detent ball may have a problem.

At any rate, it should be something that can be repaired without a major disassembly of the transmission.

Good Luck
Steve

Will a stock transmission fit on a 305 small block engine?


Not a stock 1991 GMC Sonoma transmission. They're made to fit a V6, not a V8.

95 GMC 454 Auto-not shifting consistant


first things first, check your fluid level, and condition. If its abnormally bad with small fragments of black, you can assume that you burnt out a clutch and you'll need to get a reman or new transmission. If the level is too high or low, it will cause it not to shift properly.
