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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
