Faster..brakes..the tranny is tring to shift into reverse or something

This answer was rated:

2002 Land Rover Freelander, When in drive moving forward slowly, because you can't drive it any faster, it will all of a sudden feel like someone slammed on the brakes, and them it will disengage and move freely again. Only to repeat it over and over. It feels like the tranny is tring to shift into reverse or something.


 


I read something about a shift sensor that may cause this. Is that true?

Hello,

welcome to Just Answer.

It sounds like the transmission is having trouble.

It could be the

* Torque Converter Locking Up
* Shift Solenoid not working properly
* The Fluid is wrong,or burned, or the tranny filter needs to be changed.
* A problem internal inside the tranny.

First you need to check the fluid, if you have not had it service you need to drain, and change the tranny filter out.
You need to check the computer for codes that could be hidden inside .
If it is a solenoid you need to replace it.


The other possibility is the ABS is acting up, if the brake or ASB light is on you need to scan that also for codes.

Thank you
