check all fluids...may be serious, but replace fuel filter, cuz it may be simple... any smoke? check all the basics found in a manual(troubleshooting section) : ) everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:) Check the cat converter! If it feels heavy, replace it!

What could be wrong if you can shift your 1997 Cavalier into drive reverse etc but the engine just revs and won't grab the gears?

tourque converter. Clutch,if this has a standard shift they had a problem with the differential stripping, hopefully not the problem but it is common. Check your fluid level. If the car gets out of drive and the car can be pushed your link should be fine. The problem then is either in the torque converter or in the control valves inside the transmission.

Most likely it means the transmission is going out. This could be caused by a lack of transmission fluid or a complete failure of the system (judging from the minor incident to the major, respectively). I would get someone you trust or a mechanic to look at it to give you an evaluation. It is typical for older Ford cars to loose their ability to shift into gears. Good luck.

Why do you have to play with the gas pedal to go on your 1991 infiniti m30?

I own a M30 from what I understand it has a Steptronic Transmission which means that to shift gears you have to do it yourself with the gas pedal I found that best time to shift gears was around 3500 rpm's at that pt I release the gas and then wait for it to go down to about 1500 rpms or so and then reapply my ft and repeat... like a stick shift on training wheels I assume... If I am wrong will someone please correct me..

What I think happened is that something with your gears went wrong so that is what is messing all of your rpms up. But, for the other problem I do not know a thing about why it would do that.

If it still has a reverse, just in the wrong place, then the linkage or cable from the shift lever to the transmission has streched or fallen out of alignment.

Plymouth Voyager transmission will not shift into third?

On my 1990 Voyager, the transmission has a "safe," or "limp" mode. If something is wrong with the trans, it will not shift out of second gear. This is supposedly to allow you to drive to the repair shop at a reduced speed.

Nope, it just means the transmission takes a little longer to shift. or it means the clutch is a little slow. either way, not a problem unless you want to fix it.
