Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
Do you have the ability to scan it to see which codes are stored?
What symptoms are noticed while driving other than the lights?
If you drive it straight 10 foot then stop, shift to neutral, hold your foot on the brake, then select 4 high and wait, will it then shift
Yes I have had to diagnose these issues before.
The flashing check engine light means a misfire has been detected.
The traction control light on can be a faulty reading wheel speed sensor.
The vehicle stuck in low is going to be a shift actuator faulty, faulty position switch, ECU failure.
Prior to any repairs the diag for each concern must begin with codes being retrieved.
If you're confused on what to do now. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.
Early you said they were all flashing which is why I answered the way I did. The check engine light not flashing just means there is likely not a misfire to blame but still an engine related code. The rest of the answer remains the same.
The first thing to do is have it scanned. There is not enough information yet to start replacing parts. You and I or anyone else would just be guessing with only knowing what we know now about the vehicle.
You need a tool that plugs in under the drivers side of the dash to see which of the about 700 possible codes are stored.
Sorry I have no control over the questions asked, if the car owner has tools or can work on vehicles, or what concern the car has. We just try to help as best we can based on the info given to us, the info that can be gotten for us, and the skills of the car owner wanting to do the repair. I am not saying I can not help. I am saying I can not tell you with accuracy which part to replace without codes. Even once I know the codes we still have to do diagnostics. The codes alone do not tell us what is faulty, just where to start.
I have nothing to do with the fee or your expectations prior to asking your question. I just answer questions and nothing more. You were charged the full question value at 6:52 central time. I just checked, since then I have helped 16 customers. 9 of them had codes or were able to get me codes. We have no idea of your skills or abilities or concern prior to you landing on the board waiting for an expert to help.
No where did I say 7 people got scammed. The other 7 customers did not have concerns associated with warning lights on and codes stored. Nothing is a scam here. You have just asked a question that requires some diag which you say your not able to do.
Do you want me to have CS contact you?
Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
