2005 carolla wont shift to third gear


it could be any number of things, 3rd gear may be out in the trans, it could be the computer telling it not to shift, it could be your cable is out of adjustment. Your best bet is to go to a qualified shop or the dealer and have it looked at before the trans is burned up causing a couple of thousand $$$ is repairs.

1998 Montero Sport 4x4 V6 transmission with 205,000 miles doesn't shift. Just changed the tranny filter and fluid and it still doesn't shift.


I have never seen a trans with 205,000 miles on it,
& I once owned a trans repair shop

So pull it out & have it rebuilt

Fluid is changed to replace it's ability to
remove heat, no other reason

Harsh shifts after transmission rebuild


they need to adjust the shifting cable, take it back to who built the trans and tell them to adjust the shifting cable, if its not adjusted right, it will burn up the trans again,be sure to get that fixed quickly, also, some trans builders remove the wave plates in trans ,that will cause a hard shift , most likey ,the cable, hope this helps you, thanks robert b.

1995 sunfire wont shift gear


There were two different automatic transmissions in the Sunfire that year,the 3 speed trans designated the 3T40,and the 4 speed trans designated the 4T40.If your car has the 4 speed trans,there will be a circle around the "D" on your gear selector indicator.The 3 speed trans will not have a circle around the "D".The 3 speed trans works off of a cable called the TV or Throttle Valve cable.This cable should be checked where it engages the throttle body around the area where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle body,on the engine.If the cable becomes disconnected for whatever reason,the trans will not shift out of 1st gear in most cases.If the car has the 4 speed trans,this model trans is totally electronic,and the vehicle should have the codes pulled out.For every trouble code,there is a diagnostic route to follow to repair the malfunction.

Trans abrupt shift up & down between 1st & 2nd


Honda requires a highly friction modified fluid,or additive.Drain the fluid and replace with genuine Honda fluid.This should calm down the shifts a little.Fluid level is checked with the engine OFF.Also on your year Honda,there is a cable that runs from the accellerator linkage under the hood,down to the transmission.This cable is responsible for shift timing,and shift FEEL,and it is adjustable for these purposes.At the transmission are 2....12 mm nuts jammed against each other with a steel bracket in between.Loosen the nuts,and then the cable can be adjusted.For a softer shift feel,loosen the nuts,and take the end of the cable,and move it TOWARD the little arm (down) sticking out from the trans.This effectively makes the cable SHORTER resulting in softer shifts.For harder and later shifts,move the cable the opposite way,effectively making the cable LONGER.Beware though.adjusting the cable TOO much towards the softer side can cause the trans to start slipping and actually burn up clutch packs inside the trans,so some common sense is needed when adjusting the cable.Good luck,and remember to rate this solution.
