Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Did this just start out of the blue?
And what do you mean by it doesnt shift to third? Please elaborate.
So it continues to drive just fine in second and just never even attempts an upshift?
And have you got the transmission codes checked? Its gonna be an electrical issue and the flashing light is saying there is a transmission trouble code stored. Thats where you need to start.
And do NOT drive it unless its a life or death emergency. The more you drive it like this the more likely it is that you will cause a mechanical problem.
OK that code is almost always caused by a mechanical failure.
Have you checked the fluid level, color and smell?:
Does it smell burned?
Its shift solenoid B. I am attaching a picture.
