What would cause a 1991 Honda Accord automatic transmission to not shift in third and fourth gears D4 light stays on.....stuck in gear ....rpm raised..S light on......blinking....?
If the "S" light is flashing, it indicates a problem with the transmission or speed sensor. I have 1991 Honda accord LX and got "S" mode without pushing 'S" mode switch I recommend that if if u have S mode On in yr odometer that means yr TCU or TCM(transmission computer) is not working properly. … I Open that computer is and check it ,I fixed my computer,then REPROGRAM it which is necessary and RESET IT then install back same way i take it out. My problem was solved within two our of work and after half an hour driving my car after installation .Now i don't have "S" mode in my car.I m happy. before u disconnect yr computer make sure you call me first so i can teach you how to do.I have all information in pictures also..And i can also guide the person who want to do it yourself from my home with the help of pictures and phone guidance. I can also repair for you and it will be gurented and reprogrammed and will be tested in my car and urgent service also available like next day delivery.I will charge the $125 for my service and we will decide thjat how we proceed our work like on site work or at my site work. I went first AAMCO TRANSMISSION they told me to Rebuild transmission for 1500-2000 dollars, then i went to HONDA Dealer ,they told me to replace computer for 1300 dollars+tax+LABOUR COST, then i tried myself finish with $125+ 5 hours workdone+Electronic Parts Cost.If u have any question regarding this , call me at 973-610-5670 after 6 pm any day or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Hiren patel (MORE)
overdrive lockout . \n4th gear is overdrive. the computer locks out overdrive until the transmission fluid is up to normal operating temperature. once up to normal temp, the vehicle will shift into overdrive and all is well. there is only a problem if the vehicle does not shift into 4th AFTER …reaching proper operating temperature.\n. \nThe thinking is that the transmission warms up faster in 3rd than it would in 4th (overdrive). I believe this type of control is due to environmental laws, or fuel consumption considerations.\n. \nwhat confuses me is that the recommended operating procedure when towing or hauling is to manually lock out overdrive in an effort to keep trans fluid cooler.\n. \nhere you have specia controls built into the vehicle to warm up tans fluid faster by using 3rd gear. then, once up to normal temp, you need to lock out 4th because trans fluid will run cooler in 3rd. very odd. I been trying to find out why this is for a long time. (MORE)
Where do you start if the back up lights on a 92 Plymouth voyager only get a connection when you jiggle the gear shift but they wont stay on?
Answer . \nAdjust or replace the back up light switch, located somewhere next to the shift lever.
Answer . \nThe reason your OD lite blinks and stays on means that your transmission control module has detected a problem such as a possible slipping clutch during a shift point you will need to have the vehicle scanned for codes and further repair
Your 70 VW bug has 1600 dual port motor wont stay running and shuts down every time you go to stop what is going on Help?
Possible Answer . if its also losing power up hills etc ... it could simply be the distributor points gap. Needs to be 0.016" (0.4mm).. Unit probably needs a complete tuneup, new fuel filter and carburettor adjustment.
What causes a Ford Aerostar XLT not to shift into overdrive and stay in third gear no matter what speed you go?
Answer . my 93 aerostar did this, my problem ended up being the modulator valve on the transmission, a 13.00 dollar part at autozone, it was sucking tranny fluid into the motor, wouldn't shift right and was running terrible. you can tell if this part is bad by simply getting under the van, find t…he transmission pan, on the passenger side, on the pan lip(hard to see on a 93) there is a small hose connected to it, pull it off, if tranny fluid is in that hose valve is bad. Another possibility is that the torque converter is bad.. Thanks for answers. Oddly enough I replaced a fuse and overdrive worked???. Where is that fuse located?* . (MORE)
You have 96 dodge stratus it shifts in first and second but wont in third or overdrive what can you do?
No 3-4 gear is typical of the forward drum burning out theover/underdrive clutches contained within it. If it was just onegear I might suggest the solenoid pack, but those two gearstogether indicate more extensive problems. Had the same problemwith my Stratus, ended up replacing the transmission. T…he upshot is you're looking at a fairly expensive repair, whetheryou decide to have yours rebuilt or go for a used one. If you cando the work yourself, you may get away for under $500, but if youhave to take it anywhere, you can triple that figure at a minimum.Sorry I don't have better news for you. You need to have the system checked for trouble codes. When thetrans computer detects a problem it sets a code and locks the transinto 2nd only. (MORE)
its probably your brake light switch. jiggle the little sensor connected to the top of the brake pedal.
This can be caused by anything from a bad sensor to transmission going bad. A transmission mechanic can check for engine codes and other tests to verify if it is a simple fix or major repair.
Answer . 3rd gear is gone or you put lucos in you transmission fluied to stop the grears from slipping your best bet is to find out if anyone is having a deal to look at transmission such as amoco
What could be going wrong if i have 1992 dodge stealth es that seems to be staying in second gear from when you start out and it wont shift?
Your transmission is locked in limp mode. You need to take it to a qualified mechanic to performance diagnostics on the ECU to determine the failure code. When my 91 Stealth ES did that, it was a combination of a shorted plug wire, and ignition coil. Once repaired the ECU needs to be reset.
The voltage regulator and or the alternator are bad. You need to have these items checked. Make sure the wiring is in good shape and battery cables are in woking order.
The transmission for the 1996 Chevy 3500 could be jumping fromoverdrive for several reasons. The transmission could have a vacuumor electrical problem causing it to come out of overdrive. Or,there could be an internal valve problem causing this to happen.
The people who work from 11 PM or Midnight until 6 or 8 AM. Also called the graveyard shift.
Check to see if stop lights are working Shift interlock and stoplight circuit are common Check fuses Check alignment of interlock switch at top of brake pedal Try turning key to 1st position (unlock) shift to neutral to start and then shift to Drive
In an automatic there is a transmission shift relay that is behind your upper dash vents and can be seen just right of the glove box once you have it removed. It should be white in color with, IIRC, 6 prongs. More than likely that would be your culprit. I just went through this on my 87.
I would have to say the easiest way and probably the cheapest way to lower the front end of a Vdub is to just buy some new springs. You can get into some pretty crazy set ups for lowering the front and rear but they can get pretty expensive. I have a 01 GTI VR6 and got some neuspeed sport springs an…d it lowered the car nearly 2" in the front and 1.6ish in the back and cost me for springs and to have them installed 380 and took a little more then an hour. But you will be surpised at the sites that are out there for aftermarket parts for Vdubs. If its an older beatle I'm not to sure but I'm sure you can find something on the web for them. (MORE)
THERE IS A SMALL SWITCH UNDER THE BRAKE PADDLE THAT SUPPOSE TO TRIP WHEN YOU PUSH ON THE BRAKE TO ALLOW YOU TO SHIFT. I BELEIVE THERE IS A RECALL ON IT. BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS TRY TO CLEAN IT USINF WD40
Because Volkswagen does not care about it's customers anymore. There is even a petition about the crazy rev hang. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/petition-volkswagen-rev-hang-rpm-hang/
if it doesnt turn over check your battery, you might just need a jump. the battery is under the rear seat.
I believe it is the same as in my 98 vw golf, as far as I know anyway, that would be with reverse being closest to the driver, and everything is normal after that. 1st to 5th.
ANSWER: . If the alarm is factory equipped, take it to the dealership. If It was post production installed, take it to the place of installation or to an alarm installation shop. If you intend on stealing the car, ask any policeman. They love questions like this.
I have this identical car, and it is a 4 speed automatic. I've put a few hundred into modifications but I still remember the gearing it had. You can get it into 4th gear, but you'll need to bring it up to about 160KPH . If you have ever tried out the manual gearing (1st, 2nd, 3rd, then drive) you'll… find that 2nd gear will take you to 100KPH easily. This car has automatic overdrive so it will gear according to how you drive. Ecomonic mode is in the 4000s and sport changes at 6000. To change into sport mode easily there's an additional option after putting the accelerator all the way down there's another section to it. Wouldn't recommend doing this around town since I've spun the wheels at 40kph and the back end likes to drop a couple of inches. That should cover just about everything, i'd recommend reading your manual and hopefully you're putting 91-94 octane in this car. If you forget even once the car will moan for a couple hundred Ks and start knocking on the dash for help. (MORE)
I just had that happen to my '95 Subaru Legacy wagon. It was stuck in 4th. Cluch would engage but couldn't get the stick shift to move. It finally gave way with my buddy rocking the car and me pushing the clutch in and moving the stick around.
Your forward gears are in a standard "H" pattern. To engage reverse, bring the shifter all the way to the left then push it down and pull back.
this happened to my 2006 Toyota highlander...look under hood...a piece of foam was stuck up under parking brake so it couldn't shift into park
my first question to you would be, did it ever hit 3rd gear with the shift kit?. and then, who put the shift kit in? is it possible something could have been put back together wrong, or left out?
The answer depends on the problem. If your shifting is sloppy and you're looking to tighten it up, then you need to replace the shifter bushing or the shifter U-joint. The U-joint is easier to replace. To change the bushing, you need to remove the shifter. Just behind the cup that the shifter goes i…n, there is a little plastic bushing that surrounds the shaft and is held in place by a metal loop hanging down from the top of the tunnel. Pull the shaft forward (towards the front of the car) and slide/pull/yank/cut the old bushing out. Take the new bushing and slide it in place. It should snap into place and be firmly held in position. If it will not snap in or if there was no old bushing, then your loop is worn out and needs to be replaced. This is a little harder and would require much more explanation. To change the U-joint, you need to remove the rear seat. Underneath an oval plate held in place with a screw, there is a metal cage holding large square rubber blocks in place. There is a bolt going through the rubber blocks that attach the cage & blocks to the shift rod coming out of the transmission nose cone. If these blocks are loose or sloppy then they need to be replaced. I recommend getting the neoprene replacements - they will outlast your car! They are usually red so you can tell the difference between neoprene and the black rubber ones. Just make sure to put a little grease around the outside of the blocks everywhere that they touch metal. They last a long time but they tend to be squeaky! A little grease will stop the squeaks. You can replace the cage if you want, but as long as it's not bent out of shape or worn through anywhere, it should be perfectly fine to re-use. I've only ever had to replace ONE cage EVER, and that's because I bent the hell out of it myself! I hope this helps you! If your problem is something else then you need to be a little more specific with your question. (MORE)
\nTake the wire running from the coil to the distributor out of the car and put it in your pocket. The car absolutely will not start without it, and that will dissuade anyone who doesn't want to steal the car by towing it off.
The Beatles third album was "A Hard Day's Night" released in 1964. This was the first album to have all tracks written by the Beatles..
Depending on the vehicle, lets say you own a Chrysler, the electronic transmission has a mode referred to as "limp in" mode. Your vehicle will run only in second, or maybe third gear(transmission). In most cases, if there is something mechanically wrong with your tranny, you will hear it or feel it,… or have total failure. In the case of an electronic problem, the check engine light accompanied by the inability to shift through the gears could be due to a faulty governer pressure sensor and or solenoid. Occasionally with Chrysler electronic trannys, the solenoid gets frozen and will not engage with the correct force. Fault code will indicate Governer pressure sensor voltage too low, etc. This can be remedied easily by purchasing the parts over the internet and dropping the transmission pan, removing the valve body, and replacing the two parts.

What could be wrong if a 1995 Ford Escort LX if you have no overdrivethat just shifts into second if you move it to drive but won't shift into third and fourth need help?
First I would take a look at the shifting cable to see if it needs to be adjusted. Then, after that I would look at the control module and the valves.
your car is probably in "Limp" mode -- it starts in 2nd and never gets out of 2nd -- usually you need either (or both ) an inner and outer shaft speed senso - found on the drivers side/ left side of the transmission above CV halfshaft housing -- look for 2 wires going to each the other spped senso i…s 5" behind the front sensor (MORE)
\nthe transmission is stuck in a fail safe mode, indicating there could be an internal problem.
The first thing I would do is to replace the shift coupler. You crawl under your car and look at the nose of the transmission, and you'll see the shift rod coming out of it running to the front of the car. If that goes bad--and since it's a 67, it almost certainly is--it can cause this. These are ch…eap. If that doesn't work, things are no longer cheap because you need the transmission rebuilt by someone who knows how to rebuild this transmission. You can order a rebuilt transmission from aircooled.net or busdepot.com. (Both are very reputable; which you choose depends on where you live. Aircooled.net is in Salt Lake City. Bus Depot is in Pennsylvania. Pick the closest one because these are motor freight items and you pay for that by the mile.) By the time you pay freight and buy all the stuff you need to install a transmission, you're looking at somewhere around $600. (MORE)
If it is an automatic then you are either low of fluid or your filter is dirty and needs changed. If that don't work than your transmission needs fixed and I would advise you to take it to a shop there are little spider gears inside a automatic transmission that drives your car those little spider g…ears run on little pins. Its a pain to do it yourself ''''I don't know where the above is coming from. On most automatics older ones are controlled by a speed governor and valve body you really need some pro expertise to deal with this type of problem as it could be as simple as cleaning a governor or restarting a control computer but in most cases a rebuild is in line if the unit has not been serviced as it should have. as small particles come from some where to cause it . 40 years as a mechanic Johnny (MORE)
It is the same as any 3 speed floor shift. Down to the left is low, up to the left is reverse, up to the right is 2nd etc.
yes its under a plastic cap which is under a bigger plastic cap under the winshield on the left side by the defroster
Why does my auto trans in 88 chev van not shift into third or fourth gear my oil level is good and tranny filter has been changed.?
assuming your clutches are in good shape its possible your governor is stuck. a shop can pull the governor and check it, should only take about 1/2 hour labor.
You need to have the engine and trans checked for codes. The trans computer defaults to 2nd gear when it detects a problem and sets a code. You could have anything from a sensor failure to a major internal failure.
That problem almost immediately leads me to believe that you have transfer case issues. But first I would check the shifting linkage and make sure that you aren't just stuck due to normal wear.
Why is my 84 VW rabbit slipping out of 5th I try to shift into 5th and it stays 4 a sec then goes into N and i have to shift out and shift back in. What could this be?
If your speedometer cable has it's outer cover frayed, it is slowly leaking transmission oil, leading to loss of lube, heating up and damaging your transmission. Replaced two trannies before I realized what the real problem was. Replaced speedo cable (with new rubber gasket), end of problem. Make …sure tranny is properly topped off with 80 wt. gear oil.

This is not a D.I.Y. job. The best you can do is check the fluid and change (do not flush) if it dirty or smells like varnish. The filter could be plugged and this is best checked by pulling the transmission pan (this is an automatic, right). If that doesn't fix the problem, your only alternative is… a dealer service department or transmission shop. (MORE)
I wouldn't think so. Mine is a yard tall at the shoulders and weighs 160 pounds. I expect he could be injured just by trying to get him into a VW. Maybe a VW van?
In order, it went John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and last was Ringo Starr after Pete Best was removed. So it would've been George.
They started going separate ways in 1968 and split up in 1970 (legally they split in 1973). There was some resentment towards Paul because of their business problems (ironically, Paul turned out to have had the better ideas at the time) but all of them reconciled before John's death. George restored… his friendship with Paul some years before he died; as he said, Paul was one of the very few people in the world who looked at him and didn't see "Beatle" George. (MORE)
