What will cause a 94 Olds Cutlass to suddenly develop a problem shifting from first to 2nd gear?
something i discovered with my 1994 cutsup, it shifted roughly from 1st to second. i drove it for a month like that, until i changed the air filter. i removed the plastic box the air filter sits in to vacuum it out, and i saw that a hose (in charge of vacuum-shifting) was loose. the idiot before me had used a garden hose and some rubber bands. i replaced it with a brake cylendar hose off of a 1987 Pontiac lemans, and it cured the problem, no leaks, no low fluid.
hopfully it is just low transmission fluid or a cloged filter. I would check the fluid level (when eninge is warm)1st. if the level is fine, change the transmission fluid and filter if it has been over about 45K miles since it was last done.
What would cause a 1991 cutlass Oldsmobile to suddenly stall at a stop sign after driving it 20 miles with no problem?
Test for fuel pump pressure at the back for the throttle body at the schrader valve. Your fuel pump may be going out. This is the #1 problem with these cars.
Why would a the transmission suddenly stop shifting if a rebuilt transmission had been installed the day prior The transmission has sufficient fluid.?
I just had this problem and had to replace the torque converter. Also the two three solenoid was bad..
When you have problem shifting gears, you transmission has a problem.
A Dodge Stratus shifting problem might begin because of dirty transmission fluid. This problem could also be caused by damage to the transmission due to wear and tear or low fluid.
If speedometer is pulsing and causing auto transmission shifting problems on 1995 f250 powerstroke how do I find Problem in wiring harness I've changed speed sensor checked connections at trans also?
Check wiring all along the harness. If the tranny is shifting up or down suddenly and for no reason there could be a short in the harness. 90's ford had a problem with this. May need a new harness or have to make one up yourself.
my transmission is not shifting on my 2005 Ford Taurus what could be the problem
A broken shifting fork in the transfer case will cause your vehicle to stay in the gear that it was in when the shifting fork broke. Broken shifting linkage can also cause the problem.
1987 Oldsmobile cutlass calais Cruise Control Stopped working suddenly on highway. how would i fix this fuses are good brake lights are working.?
if it is a standard transmission, check the clutch switch on the pedal, may fix the problem. it did on my accord. i own a calais w/o cruise. hope you find the problem.
Several things can cause your transmission to be stuck in second gear. Broken or detached shifting linkage will cause the problem. A broken shifting for in the transmission can also cause the problem.
a broken dip stick wont cause hard shifting... the engine does not do the any shifting... your problem would be the transmission... check transmission....
i had same problem on my 94 cutlass supreme...long story short, it was the ignition switch. $300. at shop.
What do you infer if you are watching a space launch and suddenly learn that the launch has been scrubbed?
Some problem has suddenly arisen.
Are you having trouble shifting out of park? Would it be a bad solenoid/tranny?
brake lgiht fuse blows when shifting gears?
What would cause your Dodge pickup with an automatic transmission to stall when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear?
The real problem is manually shifting from gear to gear with an automatic transmission. If you are referring to the automatic upshift, there may be a problem with the EGR system or vacuum system.
i would say because it is not getting spark but i have a 77 cutlass with the same problem so check it for spark
Sounds like a transmission problem
It probably needs freon. 99% of the time that's the problem..
There are a number of reasons why a 95 Cutlass would start then shut right off. The problem could be the fuel line going bad, the battery terminals could be dirty, or loose, or wires could be bad.
1998 Cutlass Theft Alarm will arm itself and you can't start the car for 10 mins until it goes off Can you disable it?
The problem may be your ignition key. I have a 97 Cutlass GLS and one of my two keys causes this problem, the second key works fine.
If there is a loud noise when shifting from park into drive, it may be a transmission problem. One should shift slowly, as the transmission could disengage itself.
What would be the problem on a 1996 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme that all the power windows are not working?
Had the same problem a few weeks back.Mileage on 1986 cutlass supreme was close to 400,000 KMS(Canada). Sorry to say transmission needs to be rebuilt.
could be a problem with your transmision, having trouble shifting
Because of problem in OS ,Hardware and Software
If it is a transmission problem, the best thing you can do is have the transmission rebuilt. That will fix the problem and prevent any further damage to the transmission.
Hi, Ok on my 94 the problem was the turn signal switch in the steering column , and this fixed the problem. Mike.
Bring to ashop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
Why does only one brake come on on a 1990 cutlass and not the other just blinks third brake light out too checked fuses and bulbs?
My 1991 Olds Cutlass Ciera had that problem and it was corrected by replacing the turn signal switch. Troubleshooting with the factory service manual pinpointed the problem. Paul S
Has anyone had a problem with the computer on the anti-theft sys. on a 1998 gls cutlass to where it would cut off the fuel supply to keep the car from starting?
I have a 97 Cutlass GLS and the problem was actually the ignition key. Even the dealer did not know this. I was lucky and one of my two keys works fine.
Yes it can cause erratic shifting. But not an engine miss fire. You need to find out why the engine is missing and running bad and when you fix that problem then I'm sure the transmission will start working and shifting correctly.
The most common problem I have seen is a failed motor or trans mount.
Yes, common problem to have a high resistance switch.
electric problem oldsmovible bravada
Rev servo inop for some reason. Takeit to the trans shop.
You need to determine if it is a fuel problem or a spark problem in order to narrow the possibilities
The problem of the fuel pump, I have this problem occurred two weeks ago and replaced once the new pump, and now no problem
Had the same problem with 2001 Explorer Sport 4.0 SOHC. Thermostat was the problem. Engine was overheateing causeing rough shifting and warm air out of AC. $15.00 Fix!!!
develop a hypothesis.
I thought that I was the only one with a burnt out light! I don't have an answer, but I share your problem.
A transmission that is sticking would cause a 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager to die after shifting it into gear. A problem with the ignition system could also cause this.
My '96 is in the shop with the same problem. Bending me over for 400 bucks
There is a problem with the emissions system. Check for a loose gas cap. If that is not the problem, seek out the services of a professional.
yes the baby's eyes develop in the womb everything that the baby will have develops in the womb. IF the eyes wouldn't develop in there then there would be a big problem.....
The P1406 code on a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 3.1 is the code for the EGR pintle position circuit. I know this because it was my question initially and we bought a code reader to check the problem. It is a factory specific code, so the answer is quite specific. Good luck !
Bad powertrain mount or worn CV joint or high idle speed or torque converter problem.
it will be either the o2 sensor or the idle air control module. i had the same problem in 2 different cieras and each one had this problem.
i had the same problem and i found out that i hat ice in my shifter .
four wheel drive drive line came disconnected
