ok

please explain to me what you mean when you say it wont go into 4th gear..

does it just hold 3rd or does it go into like neutral and the engine revs when it is time to go to 4th?

transmission shift to 2nd and 3rd gear but engine rev when is time to go to 4th and never get to 4th. no engine light
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 13 days ago.

ok

this is not good at all

if it is going like into nothing when it is time to shift to 4th,,it revs because nothing is there..i would think the band or the overdrive clutches are burnt out.

i dont see an easy fix for this one,

the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced,sorry

thanks
