1994 voyager 3.0 slips in first only reverse and all other gears fine


Have to rebuild the transaxle

You changed the fluid on an already slipping
trans,now it is worse.

Too old a vehicle to put time & money into

I owned a trans repair shop in the early 1990's
& 50% of my work was caravans & taurus ,so that
tells you their not a good unit at all,only the ford
windstar & it's replacement were as bad or worse

I have a 1997 honda accord 2.2 automatic trans. the trans started slipping a couple times just for a couple seconds then it was fine, Last week on my way home I only had 1st and 2nd I made it home driving...


Check your tranny fluid I had a similer issue with a different truck and it was a clogged trans filter which caused it to pump the fluid up the dip stick I changed the fluid and didn't have an issue again until I blew the engine. So I would change that first regardless.

Tran warms up, then problem getting out of 1st gear


Depending on who serviced it. Was it a reputable place? If the fluid and filter were definately changed, your tranny is going out. Just wear and tear with those kind of miles. Hope it helps

I have a 1997 Chevy Silverado. First gear doesnt work??


If trans fluid is full, it's shot. You could remove pan and check to see if filter is blocked but if fluid smells burned and there is a lot of debris in pan, don't bother with it...just get another one!

Transmission


Most likely a fluid change and the new Dexron 6 trans fluid will cure this issue, make sure to do a full service, fluid and filter. Note, Dexron VI replaces all previous Dexron fluids and I know from personnel experience it works great, longer trans life and smoother shifts and less problems like yours.
