It's probably not brakes, but you can check that anyway. If the check engine lights are on your computer has stored a fault code. Use a code scanner to find out what's wrong that way you can know for certain what's going on. BTW, if it's transmission or brake related, many engine code scanners won't pick up the code. You may need to take your vehicle to a specialty shop.
What can cause the RPM on a car to jump while driving is a problem with the transmission. It could be a problem with the gears in the transmission itself.
Transmission Problems, you shouldn't be driving with this on!
There is a problem with the transmission - or, the emergency brake is on and works very well.
There can be several things that will an automatic transmission not to work properly. The most common cause is a lack of transmission fluid. Broken shifting linkage can also cause the problem.
The oil and battery lights might be showing on your shogun when driving due to an electrical problem. A mechanic can properly diagnose the problem.
If it is a transmission problem- First step would be to change trans. fluid and filter If it is a transmission problem- First step would be to change trans. fluid and filter
Overdrive might not work on a 1992 Dakota because there is a problem with the transmission. The shift solenoid or a belt is not functioning properly inside the transmission.
The transmission has gone into the fail safe mode, to keep it from blowing apart.There is a mayjor problem in the trans. or computer system.Stop driving it and get it to a trained transmission man/shop. NOW.
i had the same problem and it turned out to be a valve body in the transmission that was sticking. what ever that means idk to much about cars but i put some transmission cleaner in it and it hasn't giving me a problem for a little but now.
transmission is slipping
Could be but probably an engine problem.
The D4 light on a Honda Accord is the transmission warning light. These come on when there is a malfunction on the transmission. For the problem to be diagnosed properly the vehicle should be taken to a dealership.
The transmission codes and functions are often controlled by the ecm, engine control module computer. The ecm stores the fault codes from the engine and transmission. It is telling you that you have a transmission problem, the vehicle must have the ecm scanned by a certified technician, to properly diagnose the problem.
Sounds like there is a problem in the transmission and the computer has put the transmission into the FAIL SAFE MODE to keep it from blowing apart. Stop driving it and get it to a transmission shop ASAP.
Could be anything from an engine management problem to the transmission failing
Possibly a vacuum problem or transmission solenoid. This will have to be properly diagnosed in order to definitively determine the cause.
The problem may not be with the engine, but in fact may be a problem wiht the transmission. This is a known problem with the 2002 model.
Change the transmission fluid and filter may help problem if not may have to have transmission rebuilt
if the vehicle could not be driven the problem is in the transmission not the transfer case if the transfer case is good you could still drive on the front wheels, the problem may be in the differential it is unusual to loose all gear,but if the problem is in transmission i would suggest the main shaft is broken
If the turn signals and emergency signals don't workout sounds like an electrical problem's would suggest that you take it into the closest shop to get the problem diagnosed properly.
First, check the transmission fluid level. Make sure the gear selector is tight and properly adjusted. Finally, you can change the transmission filter and fluid. If you still have a problem, then you need to take it to a professional.
When you have problem shifting gears, you transmission has a problem.
What type transmission and what problem?
The transmission may jump in and out of passing gear if the solenoid is going out. Another possible problem is the TV cable. If it is not adjusted properly jumping may occur.
This could indicate a simple problem with the vacuum shift modulator or a major failure with the transmission. You will probably need to get it to a mechanic or a shop to get it properly diagnosed.
