TURN OFF 2ND GEAR START!!! That's the only thing i can think of that could make ONLY 1st gear not work and other work fine. theres a little switch under the steering wheel toward the drivers door, just turn that off so 2nd gear start isn't lit up on the dashboard. have fun.Answeryou may need to rebuild the grear box or replace the first gear shitfer linkage
Had the problem, replace tranny filter and add some lucas tranny additive. seem to take care of the problem. If you have too, manualy sift to first to start off, this will reduce the heat in the tranny and help to prevent further damage.
If your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am will not shift into part, the transmission is probably seized up. The first step is ensuring the transmission fluid is not too low.
My car will shift when i first go but wont shift after that help
the first automatic transmission was invented by Louis-Rene Panhard and Emile Levassor in 1894
you need to change the fluid. my 99 grand am does that, it feels like you're shifting a manual from 1st to 2nd.
There are several things that can cause your automatic transmission not to go into first gear. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.
Does it have an automatic or standard transmission? That is the first question..
every 25,000 miles or every five oil changes which ever comes first.
The first fully automatic transmission (the Hydramatic) came out in the 1940 model year by Oldsmobile.
