Asked in Transmissions and Drivetrains
Will 93 explorer transmission swap with 99 transmission?
Will it bolt up? Yes.. Will it work? No.. The newer trans is a 5 speed automatic, the 93 is a 4 speed auto. The newer explorer will not shift properly, and won't have that 5th gear that it thinks it does. You will most certainly be throwing all sorts of transmission codes, and be stuck in "limp" mode.

Asked in Dodge Caravan
2001 dodge caravan transmission stuck in second?
Assuming it is an automatic, and you don't have any forward gear except second, you are probably in "limp-in mode". Something has failed in the control circuit for the transmission (computer, relay, wiring etc.), and the transmission defaults to the single gear to allow you to drive at reduced speeds to a repair facility, or just to get to a safe place to call for help.

What causes your 1996 Plymouth breeze automatic transaxle to be stuck in second gear reset mode?
This behavior is programmed into the transmission controller so that when its self-diagnostic capability has detected a fault that could cause damage it will only drive in 2nd gear which uses a minimum number of circuits. It is called "limp-in" mode. the best ting to do is to get a "readout of the transmission computer" (not th same plug as the engine computer) which is an electronic test for the presence of coded numbers representing different faults that the transmission is experiencing at the time when it locks up into 2nd gear.

Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Dodge Intrepid
Why is your dodge intrepid rpm stuck in 3rd gear?
The transmission is going into limp mode because one or both speed sensors are reporting a failure the computer will limp the transmission into one gear only. This is to protect the rest of the clutches and seals to prevent more damage internally. You need to check and replace the input and output speed sensor if necessary.

Asked in Transmission Fluid, Honda CR-V
How do you check if transmission of Honda CR-V 1998 already failure?
If you are referring to an automatic transmission, the fact that it won't move the vehicle is one sign. When automatic transmissions fail they usually have a 'fail-safe' feature known as "limp home mode." The auto transmission will default to 2nd gear and will not shift out of that gear but allows you to drive short distances in that gear to get home or to a shop.
