What car has an L as a shift letter... for automatic its Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive (or Over Drive if your car has Over Drive), 2 and 1... there is no L and for standard its gear 1 2 3 4 5... Is your car making a whinning noise, if so it might be the Torque Converter... if its not then the trans itself might have died on you... was the car slipping in gear and stuff before this happend? fluid change would be a waste of money if your not sure if its torque converter or transmission just acting up... my car was slipping, i went and got new fluids, gasket, even a tranny additive to help it shift better (didnt work) then the car ran fine for every bit of 4 days then converter died... are you using the correct fluids for the car, the Chrysler fluid that's recommend is ATF+3 or 4... they no longer make ATF 3 so you will have to buy ATF 4 for your transmission, if you was buying Dextron or Mercon hoping to say alittle money then that right there could have distroyed the transmission, the ATF+4 has additives right in it to help improve shifting, Dextron or Mercon doesnt. The price of ATF+4 has went down, it was about 6 dollars a quart and its now about 3 a quart so that's good right there... hope ive helped you have... Good Luck with your Shadow, i have a Spirit with a 2.5 and its transmission died all thanks to the torque converter.

If the car is equipped with a 4 speed automatic electronic transmission then it could be a simple problem. Second gear is the "limp in" mode when a

problem is detected by the control module. This could be a sensor problem, such as a PRNDL Switch. The switches are located toward the front of the transmission just above the oil pan. Check for a loose connection at both switches as this is a common occurrence, especially for intermittent problems. On the other hand this could be due to an internal parts failure.
