Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry you are having this problem
do you mean drops a gear as down shifts or the gear you are in acts like neutral then comes back ?
what speed will it do this ?
is or will the check engine light come on ?
how many miles are on this vehicle ?
has anything been done yet to correct this issue ?
will it do this in 3rd or 4th gear at all ?
thank you for that information
when these transmissions neutral out so to say it is usually a failing forward sprag one way clutch causing this type of issue or a rare chance of a pump failing
by design these transmission no matter what should not neutral out as by default if anything happens with the shift solenoids or computer or the wiring to the transmission it should always have a gear by default and when yours neutrals out there is a physical failure going on inside and its usually the forward sprag one way clutch not holding causing this issue
the best action to take is to drop the pan and look for any debris of metal or clutch material if any is seen the transmission needs to come out and apart to be inspected and rebuilt
if there is no debris the valve body needs to be inspected and removed and the channel plate cleaned then put back together and see if it still acts up if it does the transmission needs to come out and the forward sprag checked and more than likely replaced and when apart all the clutches inspected
in a nut shell if cleaning the valve body and channel plate does not correct this issue the transmission will need to come out and apart to be repaired i am sorry to say
