I'm having the same problem. Seems to me it's something in the engine wiring harness. It happened once and my daughter played with some of the wiring and it was fixed for quite a while. Recently, an auto repair shop was messing with the wiring and it's back doing the same thing again. Speedo not working and it hangs in 1st gear and shifts erratically. I have had this problem also and it is a easy fix. Replace the speed sensor. There is two kinds one with a red gear and one with a white. So take it out first before you go to get one. You can find the speed sensor on the back of the Transmission the speedometer cable goes through it you will need a 10mm wrench and that is it. if its stuck in 1st the gear box is probly buggerd and as the speed sensor is directly attached to the gearbox it probly still works just need new box
It possibly could be a bad alternator.
It could be low of ATF automatic transmssion fluid. Check it. The pump could have failed also.
There are a few reasons why a Ford Escort LX will not go into reverse. One of the reasons could be low transmission fluid. Another reason could be a bad transmission.
Could be your speed sensor on your transmission
Likely either a bad/failing motor mount, or a bad transmission mount. Is it a manual or automatic transmission? If it's automatic; the clutch that controls the reverse gear could be going bad. Have your mounts checked first. Simple, easy to replace, and the least expensive of the repair solutions vs. a bad transmission or clutch.
It could be a whole mess of things. But start with checking your transmission fluid. If it's looks dark or smells burnt, it needs a changing. If the fluid is fine, you should get it diagnosed by a transmission specialty shop.
Having the speedometer jump and the engine stall in the 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo could be a problem with the idle and the transmission. The transmission slipping can cause the speedometer to jump.
Could be a transmission problem, assuming an automatic transmission.
it was standard but you could order it with an automatic from the factory
No and I could be wrong on this but if it is a true automatic transmission and not the DSG, you have to disconnect the drive wheels from the transmission like with every other car sold with a automatic.
If the pcm controls the transmission the shifts could be inaccurate.
When an automatic car jerks into fourth gear it could be the transmission. You may need transmission fluid or a new transmission. A licensed mechanic can check the car.
You can't shift gears on an automatic transmission because, as it is called, it's automatic! You don't need to shift, it does it for you. == == Maybe the question should be "Why is my automatic transmission not shifting through gears for me as it should?" Could it be a fairly simlpe fix or am I losing my transmission? Yeah Dopey!
Depending on the vehicle, a faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) could affect the automatic transmission shift points.
Could be an auto or a manual.
It could have an automatic or 5-speed manual
Have you checked the fluid level, It could have lost a little fluid over the years even sitting there.
Speed sensor on rear of transmission where speedometer drive used to be. If ecm receives no speed data transmission, it will send no shift signal.
your cluch could be gone!
first, locate where the speedometer goes into the transaxle or transmission housing. unscrew speedometer drive from transmission housing and pull the speedometer cable out. the end of the cable unit has a couple of dipstick marks on the bottom of speedometer cable end you just removed. hope this helps. mine has 245000 miles on it and still going strong !!!
The automatic transmission behind the Cummins engine in a Ram 2500 is a Chrysler transmission. Depending on the year it could be a 47rh, 47re, 48re, or a 68rfe.
your transmission is most likely bad if it an automatic but if it a manual then your clutch could be bad
The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.
You have to shift gears in all of them, so you'd call them "manual," but in 1969 you could get an "autostick" transmission that had an automatic clutch connected to a manual transmission.
