      Sounds to me like the gear shifter needs adjustments, maybe its binding some where.

      If the clutch hydraulic system has been bled out and the free play is still excessive then it may be a bad clutch.

      Check with U-HAUL, they're selling the tow bars and they could give the right information.Hope this helps and be safe.

      Always either tow with drive shaft disconected or using towing equipment that keeps traction wheels off road, especially for long distances.

    Why does my car shift so hard when it's cold?
    my car has 125000miles on it ,I had the trans. flushed 2000 miles ago, this seemed to help a little at first but now it has started up again. It shifts real hard from 1st into 2nd gears and is much worse when it's cold, once it warms up it is not nearly as bad but ...

      It’s normal in cold weather or place that fluid becomes dormant when the vehicle is at rest for some hours and by this result, the gears will have difficulty in its performance during this time until the fluid reach proper temperature. The fluid has its recommended type for certain weather temperature condition. Perhaps your transmission fluid has a wrong type, consult your owner's manual and see what type of fluid is suited to your transmission or ask your dealer in the absence of manual. Try first to change with the recommended type of fluid and the filter and then observe the changes; don't just consider replacing the transmission in a hurry; exhaust all possible solutions first. Make it a practice to always warm up the engine for few minutes before driving.

    My car's trans starts at a snails pace then proceeds to pick up and change gears. Can you help?
    I checked, cleaned Selenoids and fluids. Do I need to check something else?
    • Bobby

      sounds like it is sticking in first, could be many things that cause this in the transmission. Sticking valves or solenoid, maybe a bad torque convertor. slipping gears, a transmission specialist will tell you best, but most of the time these issues are internal transmission and there is no easy fix, rebuild or replace.
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      I was afraid of that. I cleaned and checked selenoids with carbruetor cleaner they look good. Sticking valves, I heard 3rd and 4th gears are located behind passenger wheel. Torque consverter where are they located? Thanks Man!!!!
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      OK. One last thing, How many sensors selenoids or valves control the gears shifting. List all if you know it is well appreicated........Thanks Again
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      I already rebulit the trans, supposedly.....according to last mechanic,,Filter maybe???

      And you did not post the code number here why? I think you mean code P0134 just a guess. Replace the O2 sensor and see.

    Change automatic transmission oil.
    How do you change your automatic transmission oil. Issue is how to fill trans once drained.
    • CVO
      11/5/2010 CVO
      To make easier, once drained, poured the old trans. fluid in an empty gallon oil recycled container and in the 2nd one as needed. One gallon is equal to 4 quarts.Once, the fill was satisfied with the measurements, started the engine with the transmission in NEUTRAL ( applied the parking brakes and blocked all the wheels for safety ) for 10 min and checked the transmission fluid dipstick for the correct level.Use the Honda Genuine Oil Transmission.

      11/5/2010 CVO
      Mr Troy, did you use the correct transmission fluid for the tranny. Mopar ATF + 3 or Mopar ATF +4 only and it is recommended by Dodge.

    Just replaced my flywheel and clutch but is still slipping at high rpm shifting from the first day of installation.
    have bleed slave, I also just found a leak in the tranny after topping off the fluid(1 quart) coming from the bellhousing. the tranny makes a lot of whinning noise may have to replace.
      11/2/2010 MOONSTER_TOOLZ
      It is possible that your pressure plate surface is contaminated with oil or the installation is not correct. Also a broken, missing or weak clutch disc springs may cause the slippage. Whining noise is due to low oil fluid in your tranny or damage gears inside. Check the condition of the fluid and add if necessary. Have a professional check the transmission prior to replacement decision.

    How do I replace a neutral safety switch?
    128,000 miles, checked the battery, starter and alternator.. It has happen a few times, the car will not start unless I jiggle the the gear shift. It is an automatic transmission. I would like to know how to replace the neutral safety switch

      Neutral Safety Switch
      On vehicles with automatic transaxles, the back-up light switch is located on the right side of the transaxle, under a protective cover. The switch is actually a combination switch for the neutral safety circuit, gear shift indicator and back-up lights. The switch is adjustable.
      Set the parking brake and place the transaxle in Neutral.
      Remove the protective cover for the switch.
      Detach the electrical connector for the switch.
      Loosen the switch mounting bolts, and remove the switch by lifting it away from the transaxle.
      To install:
      Make sure the transmission is in Neutral.
      Set the switch such that it is in the neutral position. The switch will click when it is in the neutral position.
      The remainder of the installation is the reverse of removal, making sure of the following:
      Turn the ignition switch ON and move the gear selector from position to position making sure all the gear indicator lights work properly.
      Then place the gear selector in the Reverse position and verify that the reverse lights are functioning.
      Next test to make sure the engine will start in the Neutral and Park positions, but will NOT start in any other position. If, necessary, adjust the switch as needed. has this procedures.

    I was driving my honda and it started making this wining sound came to complete stop car would not pull

      Could be your transmission fluid is very low then transmission overheated forced the vehicle not to move. Check the fluid level if correct or contaminated. Add fluid or change the oil if necessary. Worst case, there's a transmission internal damage. Have a transmission expert check on this before damage turn worst.
