What code number? Sounds like output shaft speed sensor. Very common on this vehicle. Can be changed quite easily with a 1 inch socket and a drain pan. Part is less than 50 dollars from dealer.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

Hi,

Here is some possible reasons why your transmission is having those problems .

* The gear shift linkage is binding
* There is an internal problem in the transmission
* The throttle cable is broken or disconnected
* The vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty or the vacuum line is damaged
* The electronic transmission control circuit may be faulty

I was told to change my Transmission Control Module,located on the transmission . You can get it new for under $200 but, I was advised to get it from a junk yard it's alot cheaper and its easier. I hope this helps

My 2001 chevy suburban feels heavy like it wont shift


check transmission fluid level,could be very low transmission slipping not going into over drive.if been long time change transmission fluid and filter.if transmission fluid filter already been changed other problems cause transmission not to shift could have worn broken need adjusting.governor valve sticking, governor drive gear worn, governor weights or springs missing or damaged. you could have sticking first and second shift valves.your first and second servos pistons seals stuck or damaged. do fluid change and add some high mileage transmission treatment go to any auto parts stores find transmission additive that will loosen up transmission sticking shift valves in the valve body. if your check engine light is on have vechicle code scan for faulty tps in which will cause transmission not to shift over drive.

1996 f150 4x4 e4od automatic stuck in 2nd or limp mode while in 2wheel drive or 4wheel high,when i put it in 4wheel low the transmission shifts in all gears. At fist I was told the transmission was bad,so...


Wow,
That's odd ,push button shift I suppose . Ford doesn't have a 2nd gear limp mode ,I don't think.
Has to be the manual linkage at the shifter,try manually shifting? still no low?

1993 new yorker transmission sticks in gear but hesitate to speed up.


Sticking in 2nd. Its in limp mode. You need to have the tcm scanned for codes to see why the TCM is locking the trans in limp.

Why does s3 and s4 on integra start flashing


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode

Won't shift into gear plymouth voyager


Hi the Transmission control module is having communication issues with the sitting solenoids that actually preform the shifting once you initiate it by using the in car stick. these solenoids are inside of the transmission pan and you will need to replace them.

1999 dodge intrepped wont shift out of first gear


Won't shift out of first, or is stuck in second? These transmissions will go into limp mode which sticks it in 2nd gear. Is the check engine light on? This will most likely lead you to the fault if it is.
