Customer Question
I have a 95...

I have a 95 Camaro it takes off in second, it only shifts one time an that is if u shift it manually an my scanner doesn't pick up any transmission data either

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

I just had it rebuilt the old tranny was doing the same thing exactly

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camaro yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes an I have a new motor but I wonder is it the computer or a wiring problem now that's wat the tranny shop said

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it thankyou

you have no power going to the transmission..

perhaps a wire is broken that plugs into the plug on the passenger side of the trans,,or sometimes a bad ignition switch will do this

thanks
