• Issue with sensor that commands when to engage and disengage gear

Possible Symptoms:

  • Very rough gear shifting

Possible Causes:

  • Faulty shift solenoid

  • Low transmission fluid level

  • Dirty or contaminated transmission fluid

  • Poor electrical connection for shift solenoid

  • Valve body assembly faulty

Related Parts:

  • Transmission Shift Sensor: Gear Shift Sensor communicates the position the gear shifted to. Problems lead to difficulty in shifting gears

Possible Solutions:

  • Inspect the transmission fluid with a dipstick

  • If the fluid smells burnt or looks abnormal, remove the transmission pan and check it for debris

  • After the transmission is rebuilt, if needed, fill it with fluid enough to fix any leaks
