MY FIRST guess would be that the pressure plate and the clutch itself may be cooked. If when you have it in 3rd geart and it moves, but if you give it a lot of gas and it seems to "slip", not having enough power, then I would say that your pressure plate is fried. GOOD LUCK! >>

How can a car have paddle shifters and a manual transmission?

The Pagani Huayra has paddle shifters mounted behind the wheel but also has a stick shift manual in the standard location for a stick shift. But if you shift with the paddle then want to shift with the manual stick, how does that work? Because you can technically be in second in the stick, then paddle into third, then stick back into third or whatever you want. The gear that you put the paddle into won't correspond to the gear that the stick is in. How does this work?

If 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with automatic transmission won't shift from second gear to third gear any suggestions as to why?

In automatic transmissions the second to third syncronizers always seem to go bad first, the syncronizers are worn, bad or gone. This is common in these transmissions. Also you might check your trans fluid level, sometimes a low level will cause the transmission not to shift correctly.

For what is the Power Confort switch 1990 Cherokee Laredo?

This switch changes the behaviour of the automatic transmission; in the Power position, the transmission will shift up and down at higher engine speeds. In the comfort position, the upshift points will be limited, i.e. at Wide Open Throttle the shifts will not be at maximum engine RPM as they will be in Power position. The easiest way to demonstrate this is to drive on a highway at approximately 45MPH (70KPH) and force a kickdown (press the gas pedal to the floor). In Comfort mode, the transmission will shift down into third gear from fourth; in Power mode it will shift down into second gear. The difference is very noticeable. From 1991 onwards, the switch connection at the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) was hardwired in Power mode - no switch.

Why want an automatic transmission shift to third gear?

Your transmission's filter may be clogged, you may be low on transmission fluid, or the transmission may need repair or replacement. If the transmission was full of fluid, I would suggest a transmission flush, or replacing the transmission filter and fluid. If this doesn't help the transmission may actually be damaged and may need repair or replacement.
