SOURCE: A4LD 4X4. trans. wont engage into gear

It grinds just sitting still? Will it do it with the transfer case in neutral or 4x4?

SOURCE: transmision ax4n not working

Possible bad valve body in transmission or a clogged transimission filter. The only way to check either is to pull the transmission pan.

SOURCE: 1997 ford taurus 3.0 ltr trans wont shift into

Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

I have a 1997 honda accord 2.2 automatic trans. the trans started slipping a couple times just for a couple seconds then it was fine, Last week on my way home I only had 1st and 2nd I made it home driving...


Check your tranny fluid I had a similer issue with a different truck and it was a clogged trans filter which caused it to pump the fluid up the dip stick I changed the fluid and didn't have an issue again until I blew the engine. So I would change that first regardless.

Tran warms up, then problem getting out of 1st gear


Depending on who serviced it. Was it a reputable place? If the fluid and filter were definately changed, your tranny is going out. Just wear and tear with those kind of miles. Hope it helps

I have a 1997 Chevy Silverado. First gear doesnt work??


If trans fluid is full, it's shot. You could remove pan and check to see if filter is blocked but if fluid smells burned and there is a lot of debris in pan, don't bother with it...just get another one!

Transmission


Most likely a fluid change and the new Dexron 6 trans fluid will cure this issue, make sure to do a full service, fluid and filter. Note, Dexron VI replaces all previous Dexron fluids and I know from personnel experience it works great, longer trans life and smoother shifts and less problems like yours.
