Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Today my 06 Chevy Trailblazer will go through the first couple gears fine. Around 30 mph it won't shift. It just acts like it just went into neutral. Engine revs and no power. Once it slows down and drops gear again, then it acts fine up to the 25-30 mph range. I did discover I was very low on transmission fluid. It took 3 quarts to get it to the proper level. Unfortunately, it had no effect on the problem and still behaves the same.

Sounds like clutch issue, if the car was that low on transmission fluid, obviously there is big leak somewhere, and depending on how long it was driven, one of the gears may have stripped or broke.

Might be a good idea to have a transmission shop or Chevy Dealer look at it.

Other possibility newer cars use a electronic control to tell the transmissions to shift, could be a possible issue there, but doesn't explain the transmission fluid issue.

The problem is one of a few things. Bad or low fluid. shift solinoid in the trans going bad. or pump in the trans getting very weak.

this is best checked by a service shop specializing in trans work.

hope this fixes the problem.

Ps. dont forget to rate the solution. Thanks.

Solenoids usually set a code that can be checked with a code reader.
Make sure that the oil in your transmission is full and clean...solenoids can get gummed up by varnish if trans is not serviced properly.

SOURCE: 1993 Saturn SL2 will not shift into highway gear

Saturn says and I quote

there transmission fluid is not to be changed after the first change at 6000 miles.

Now I say it should be changed at every 30000 miles. If changing out the fluid doesn't work then you need to go to a transmission repair shop.

SOURCE: 1994 Subaru impreza GLX auto won't go into reverse. No other gearbox problems, transmission fluid fine.

Drain all the transmission fluid, pull the pan, get a **** Chilton or Hayes manual, and get to the valve body of the transmission. That is probably blocked with all kinds of stuff. A lot of people would just say to flush it out, and replace the filter, but at this point, it might introduce more stuff back into the transmission, blocking the (possibly already blocked) high pressure lines. The valve body is much nicer to work on than the lines themselves.

Do you feel any resistance in the gear selector when shifted through gears?

Have you checked transmission fluid recently. If the levels are low and/or if the dipstick smells burnt, there is a good chance your transmission is shot. Check it out & let me know; may have another idea if the fluid level checks out.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with


I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.
