Check the ECM(ECU). They are know to have bad capacitors 89-94. Alot of people think it's the trans but it could be a blown capacitors. Blown cap's will make the trans only drive in lip mode.

What is the difference between drive 1 and drive 2 in a car?

Drive 1 locks the automatic transmission into first gear (preventing an upshift). Very good to use when parked or stopped on a very steep slope and you need to move forward and do not want the transmission to shift. Drive 2 locks the automatic transmission into second gear. This is sometimes referred to as a "snow" drive position, as it causes the engine power to be applied to the wheels much more slowly (via converter slippage within the transmission) minimizing actual wheel-spin when accelerating from a stopped position.

How do you get a automatic 18 wheeler to shift out of gear?

You would need to specify which transmission you have. On the older autoshifts with the clutch pedal, you could override the automatic function to get it to downshift manually, but you couldn't override it on the upshift. Some of the modern clutch free automatics have a feature which allows you to do this.

What speed do you shift an 8 speed transmission?

Truck driving schools in the US like to teach you to upshift at 1500 RPMs and go back into gear at 1000 (this is with an unsynchronised transmission). Personally, I upshift at 1900 - when you go back into gear at 1500, it bogs the motor down, reducing the service life of the motor.

If you don't have to shift gears in an automatic then what's the third second first D and OD distinctions really for?

In an automatic the Od allows the transmission to use all forward gears (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) using the 3 position allows the transmission to use gears 1 through 3 and no overdrive(generally recommended for towing). the second gear position allows the transmission to use gears 1 and 2 good for slowing on a hill with a heavy load or trailer. The !st position allows the transmission to use only first gear, ideally for stopping or slowing a heavy load. Shifting into a lower gear will not downshift the trans instintaniously. the transmission will shift down when conditions are ment. But, the trans cannot upshift past that point.

What is the meaning of drive 1 in the automatic car?

The vehicle will start in 1st gear and remain there. The transmission will not upshift to higher gears (2nd, 3rd, 4th etc.) Mostly used for descending steep grades so engine can and will assist in braking giving the driver better control of the vehicle without overheating the brakes.

if this is an older type car they use to have a vacuum modulator on the transmission that helped shift. It has a diaphragm in it that breaks and keeps it from upshift.

What does the transmission sensor on a 1996 cavalier do?

depends on the transmission type. Automatics have the following. Vehicle speed sensor - Tells Computer how fast vehicle is traveling Gear Switch Circuits - Tells computer which gear vehicle is in for engine/trans management such as TCC. Manual Trans: - Vehicle speed sensor - Same as automatic High Gear Switch - Disables Upshift light above certain RPM/Throttle positions.

What would cause a 1994 z24 to shift late?

This transmission is notorious for shifting late, or not up-shifting at all.Here's a quote from "How Stuff Works."Link:"Automatic transmission: TH-125 automatic transmissions may shift late or not upshift at all. The problem is a stuck throttle valve inside the transmission. (1990-94)."I had this problem with my 1994 Z24. But it went away (for now) when I replaced the O2 sensor and had the vacuum lines taped up (they were cracked).I also had a problem where the RPMs would go up and down (550-800) when at idle; but only after the engine had time to heat up.

Are manual transmissions superior to automatic transmissions?

In most cases. Manual transmissions have superior mileage because putting an automatic tranny in a car makes it heavier. Also, manuals are more reliable and do not break down as much if driven correctly. The superior in fuel economy and acceleration factors with the RPM. In a manual you choose the RPM where you upshift at. In an automatic it shifts at a certain RPM
