Asked in VW New Beetle
Do you shift a three speed automatic 1970 vw beetle?
Yes. That car has an "autostick" transmission. It's a three-speed manual gearbox coupled to an "automatic clutch." Basically, there's a very sensitive switch (a "microswitch") under the shifter. When you put your hand on the shifter, it closes the switch and works the clutch. After you shift and let go of the handle, it lets the clutch out and you can drive. Not only do you shift the car, you have to remember not to let your hand rest on the shift knob...you'll slow down in a hurry and you won' t know why.

Two automatic transmissions were available in 1986. Three speed automatic (says PRND21 on shift indicator on dash on console) is a Turbo Hydramatic 125C (TH125C). Later models it was called the 3T40. Four speed automatic (says PRN@D21 on shift indicator, and says "AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE" in tinier letters over that) is a Turbo-Hydramatic 440-T4. Later models had the 4T60 which is a different transmission entirely.

Asked in Chevy Silverado, Chevy Astro, Mazda 929
Why does your Mazda stay on first gear only?
possibly why transmission does not shift I have a 94 Mazda 929 with the v6 3 liter twin cam,automatic transmission. My problem was because all three of the catalytic converters were stopped up, i simply had them removed, due to tremeendous price difference, and the problem cleared up. However i had 1st and 2nd gear only. If this problem persists,it is possible it could be transmission filter or the governer,which is generally located just inside the transmission pan i think...
