Q: Having trouble shifting.

asked by on

The gears in my vehicle are not shifting correctly.

Being that this is an electronically controlled transmission there could be quite a few possibilities anything from a range selection switch to a faulty solenoid or even a mechanical issue. The fault codes need to be read out of the transmission computer first to narrow down possible causes. You may need to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who has the equipment to read and diagnose the issue. It may just be the replacement of sensor or solenoid but may maybe a transmission overhaul may be necessary. A mechanic onsite would be able to assist you.
