Worn or incorrectly adjusted linkage to the transmission control valve. (Check linkage under floor plate. Remove joint and shift by hand to see if it has full travel)

Low fluid level. (Always check fluid with engine running and oil warm.)

Plugged strainer. (Drain oil and inspect for trash. Strainer is next to drain plug or on opposite side on some models. It has a small cover over it.)

Wrong oil. (Only use 30W transmission oil, never use ATF. CAT spec' TDTO or TO-4.)

Worn out transmission. ( Cut open old filter to inspect for debris. Metal of fiber from clutches will collect in filter.)
