Best Answer

they do make a special tool called a modulator wrench just for that, but I used a pair of channel locks opened all the way with a rag around the modulator. just loosen it up and use your Hans after that.

Why does a 1990 Ford Festiva automatic transmission not shift into third gear?

Most likely a bad vacuum modulator or no or little vacuum reaching the modulator. Check to see if there is any vacuum going to the "can looking thing" on top of the trans. It may also be a broken or misadjusted T.V. cable going from the throttle valve to the trans. (if it has one i cant remember) Take it to an actual TRANSMISSION mechanic they cost more per hour but less likely to hear the all too common "it needs a new trans".

Most modulator valves are on the rear of the transmission. It should not be that hard to find due to the fact that it has a vacuum line attached to it. It controls the transmission shifting off engine vacuum. Also if it is bad it will pull transfluid out of the transmission and burn it off thur. the engine, this is noted with white smoke from the tail pipe.

If your 1990 Nissan Sentra will not shift any higher than 1st gear and reverse is fine is it a problem with the modulator?

It is probably the governor gear. It is accessible from outside the trans. Put a new one in, drop the trans pan, drain all fluid and clean out the filter and refill.
