SOURCE: 97 SATURN SC1, WONT GO INTO REVERSE AND GOES VERY SLOW

Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.

Wont shift into drive


The "Drive" you speak of is Overdrive.Youve lost connection to it.Possibly the brake pedal switch under dash has burned out and not putting power to the trans for overdrive.When you touch the brake pedal,overdrive goes off.When released,overdrive can come back on when at spped to do so.This switch could possibly just have come unplugged also.Check this first and plug it back in and drive it.

could possibly be . First have the CPU reset as the program may be corrupted from the battery change out. At the same time see if there are any fault codes concerning the TCM or OD servo/ solenoid

2005 PT Cruiser no crank


sounds like the crank position sensor. check continuity and 5volts reference at sensor. you can have it checked by someone with a Good scanner(SNAP-ON). If it happens to start up,drive the car till it wont start up again; unplug the crank position sensor and count to 5 then plug it back in. If it starts then its the crank sensor.(just a quick way to test it and get you home or to a shop)

Wont shift into overdrive, high rpms to shift


run the fault codes before you tear into the tranny as the recorded fault will pinpoint exactly what you have to fix. Most likely a faulty TCM or a od servo/solenoid.

I unplugged the speed sensor and the car started shifting weird,


You likely have a defective shift solenoid inside the transmission. Have the dealer check the operation with a scanner.

Overdrive


Probably a shift solinoid in the gear box. My commodore has 2 (1st & 2nd) & (3rd & 4th) my 3 / 4 solinoid went so went 1st 2nd 3rd but not to 4th until I replaced it.

Transmission jumping and over drive light flashing ford contour 1996


If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

I have a 2000 gmc sonoma with a 2.2l. truck shifts through all gears fine but in overdrive running at 55 or 60 the rpm will jump between 1800 and 2500 but runs most of the time at 2500. If i work the gas...


Sounds like TPS (Throttle Positioning Switch) They develop "hot spots" or wear spots usually at throttle positions that are commonly used alot IE: cruising speed. When they get hot spots they fluctuate looking for solid connection. Replace TPS.

Check you speed sensor on the transmission, Overdrive wont work without speed sensor, nor will ABS, or Speedometer.. it all boils down to a speed sensor.
