tranny trouble

3 posts in this topic

i have a 95 monte carlo 3.1. i drove about 15 miles from home, stopped, put it in reverse, no reverse, its like it is in neutral. it don't attempt to shift into it, rpm's dont even change. got forward but stays in second gear except if i put it in one than i have that. The fluid is full also and does'nt smell burnt. is the tranny shot? any ideas? one person i talked to figures the sunshell has to be replaced whatever that is. in order to drop the tranny in it and look at it, i have to drop the motor also i was told, so would rather try the other options if any. I ran a computer test on it and it didn't pop any codes but i don't know if it was the solenoid that it would anyway.

thanks for any input Joe

There is a very good likelihood that is the problem. Those are common symptoms of a broken shell. And unfortunately, yes it has to come out for that. There is very little you can do service/repair-wise on a transmission while it is in the car.

You can pull the tranny without the moter. Done it a couple times on my Grand Prix mad.gif not really that bad of a job once youve practiced a couple times.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago
