It seems to me that it could be the transmission going bad I am not 100% sure. Visit www.siennaclub.org I am sure you can get better answers there.
failing to assist tenant farmers and sharecroppers
The loud hum could be caused by some of the teeth going out on the transmission or that the transmission is failing.
could be failing transmission
The 1980 Camaro does not have a clutch adjustment. If the clutch is not operating right, then there is something in the clutch system that is failing.
This is a manual transmission car, I presume. If it's an auto, you have a big problem! Grinding could mean that something inside the transmission is failing. Or it could mean that your transmission fluid is low. OR, it could mean that your clutch is worn or is out of adjustment. Grinding usually means that the clutch is not disengaging properly when you push the clutch pedal, or perhaps, a synchronizer has failed. Whatever the case, If I were you, I'd get the car to my mechanic and have her looked at.
The A4LD transmission is the most common failure on early explorers. It's very likely that your transmission is failing.
I have a VW Jetta 1.8t with the tiptronic transmission and it cost about $3500 to have rebuilt. I was bummed, but these transmissions are notorious for failing.
It means the transmission is failing. It is caused by gears grinding or rubbing.
yes it is
Yes, cluster referrs to a gear cluster, or clutch band assembly, either of things failing would stop the transmission from working.
If your speedometer is cable driven and not electronic, it sounds like the cable needs to be lubricated. You remove the cable from the back of the speedometer and pull out the inner cable and slide it back in while lubericating it with some speedo grease.
Mitsubishi eclipse is famous because of failing transmission. If I were you I would start with checking transmission fluid level. But most likely you will have to change transmission or fix one you have.
No. A slipping transmission is caused by a low fluid level, or failure of friction parts inside the transmission. Though a failing Vehicle Speed Sensor(VSS) can cause symptoms that can make it appear that the transmission is slipping, even though it is not.
Could be anything from an engine management problem to the transmission failing
It's not an easy question. The most obvious hints are grinding noise coming from transmission, car will drive, transmission will not shift to some particular gear or some of them. But before blaming transmission make sure that you have changed the transmission fluid and the fluid level is correct.
$2800.00 out of your pocket for a new transmission. How to check the transmission fluid levels is well detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below for more
Normally this is caused by some electronic part overheating and then failing. Can be the coil, or another sensor.
There can be a number of problems that indicate that a transmission is failing; 1. slipping 2. failure to go into gear 3. leaking 4. noises 5. failure to shift at the right speed
Could be an external cooling unit failing OR the transmission filter may need replaced and transmission fluid checked for metal shavings - a sign of a more urgent transmission failure.
Try shifting from Park to Neutral to Park and if the car starts, you have aproblem with thepark/neutral safety switch. It may be failing or just need adjusting. This is a part found on all cars with automatic transmissions. It prevents the starter from engaging if the transmission is in any gear other than 'Park' or 'Neutral'. It also turns on the back-up lights when the transmission is shifted into "reverse". It can get out of adjustment or fail.
Your automatic clutches inside the transmission is failing. You will need to have the transmission rebuilt, or just replace it with a new one. That decision will be left up to you.
i am sure you can get done the transmission oil pressure test to make sure the pump or some of the important parts are failing. if the oil pressure is within specification then you can be sure the pump and most of the transmission parts are ok. i have no idea about fixing price. may be somebody here can help you on that. if you have any question just post here. you will get some help. thank you.
Gears slipping, such as sudden high RPM's and loss of power while driving. Failing to change gears at a certain RPM in an automatic.
Try having the ATF and transmission filter changed. If that doesn't help you probably have a failing "valve body" in the transmission.
