Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

Open Question

Truck will not go into first gear and pull off when you shift it to drive. it acts like it is trying to start in drive or high gear.

It will do ok if you shift it to fisrt gear and manually shift to 2, 3 , & drive. it will not downshift when you slow down. I notice that it is shifting real hard from park to drive or first gear. its acts like the torgue convertor is not sliping or something. the shift cable at the intake is reall loose also, could this need adjusting? it also seems to have to much fluid in the tranny?

2005 chrysler Sebring occasionally wont shift gears or acts like its in neutral

run fault codes and check for TCM problem . Change the fluid and clean the filter. Have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal mechanical problems. While the pan is off have the bands and clutch pack adjustment checked.

Best bet is to get it to a shop as it just may be something easy, but as a chevy mechanic, I honestly HATE every GM transmission.

Do you mean start the car in drive? if so that problem is inhibitor switch. Other shift problems can be caused by TPS (throttle posistion sensor) if applicable

Dodge dakota 2005 automatic transmission, when starting from a stop or low speed sounds as if it is low on fluid rpms high started doing this on tollway when pulling out from the toll both ????seems to...

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.
