Question about Transmission & Drivetrain for Suzuki Aerio

1 Answer

We have a 2003 Suzuki Aerio AWD with auto transmission. The transmission seems to not shift into 3rd gear at highway speed, staying in second and revving high. Otherwise the car runs normally. Any suggestions would be appreciated?

I'm not an expert with the Suzuki, but I have had lots of experience with transmissions. Chances are, one of your shift solenoids is bad and needs to be replaced. There's also a much smaller chance that the wire going to the solenoid has been pinched or broken.

Ultimately, the car will have to be connected to a professional-quality scantool and driven to confirm it. Then, the solenoids will have to be removed and tested. They are always either located on the valve body in the transmission pan, or they are attached to the top or side of the transmission as a "solenoid pack", where all of the solenoids are replaced as a unit.

Step one for you is just to make absolutely sure the fluid level is good and the fluid isn't burned or contaminated. It should be nice, clear, and pink. If it smells bad and looks more reddish brown than pink, or it's shiny with metal flakes in it, then something else is wrong.

03 suzuki will shift in to all gears but won't move


oops didnt read how to tow that suzuki,oops.
how far you go , over 200 miles>?
is it an auto or stick?

flat towed??
dolly towed,?
towed from front or rear.?
we cant guess any of that and are all covered in the operators guide.
clear as a bell too.

towing cars , most will damage the rear transmission bearing.
because its dry when engine not running.
so the rules are very strict. due to that hard fact.
soon as you tow anything , thing, "rear bearings."
or if Fwd car, same on front.
most cars are not designed to be towed and some only short distances.

2003 toyota echo when shifting above 45 mph makes a loud high rpm noise especially on the highway


If it is not going into overdrive or lockup it could be the fluid or an electrical problem. Some of the shifting is controlled by solenoids now.
You may have to get a transmission shop to evaluate it for you.

    I am getting a p0717 code, when i am driving and have to stop the car if i try to take off on drive it wont move, i have to shift it to a lower gear for it to move.


    P0717 - Input/Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal.

    P0717 code means that the computer isn't getting any signal from the sensor. Either the sensor is dead or there's a circuit issue (bad wiring, etc).

    The computer wants to know if the transmission is working properly. So it reads the speed of the input shaft and compares it to the speed of the output shaft. It knows which gear you're in because it commanded the transmission to shift into that gear. So, with the input speed, the gear selection, and the output speed, the computer can calculate how efficiently the transmission is working. If the speed is off, it knows that something is slipping inside the transmission. It can then try to boost the fluid pressure to compensate. If that doesn't work, it sets a different trouble code.

    Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

    Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.


    I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

    I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.

    03 suzuki aerio automatic transmition won t shift into overdrive


    You have two temperature lights that come on when you start the car, one red and one blue. After the car is started the red light goes out and the blue one stays on. According to the manual, (and from my personal experience with my '03 SX), the car needs to warm up to a proper operational temperature. This temperature is reached once the blue temperature light turns off, (or within seconds afterwards). If you don't allow your car to warm up you will notice hard or long shifting, rough idle, and poor engine performance. Never drive your car if the light displays a constant red temperature light.
    If this solution does not work see a Transmission expert of take it to your local Suzuki Dealer.
