: transmission problem

07-02-10, 05:52 PM
ok i just got the car running good after changing my fuel regulator. im at the point where i might just drive the car into a wall and burn it to the ground

for some reason the car now when it goes to shift gears, i havent taken it over 50mph yet but it revs up like i put the car in neutral and it wont shift, when i take my foot of the gas then it bangs into the gear real hard.

any ideas before i murder the car

Is this the 68 or the 95?

If you just changed the fuel reg it must be a 95.... The shifting in those transmissions is done by solinoids... If it is a solinoid they are eazy to change..drop the pan and they are right there...

yes it is the 95 and it just got worse.seems like the car only has 2nd gear when its in drive. manually shifting it will do 1st then 2nd then thats it. o i now hate this car, especially when im broke

This will help to narrow the problem down. (http://www.impalassforum.com/vBulletin/showthread.php?t=227226)

i decided to replace the 1-2 3-4 shift solenoids. i have to at least 3rd gear now runs much better but not 100%, havent run it much since it started raining. but i did notice that if its going into 4th the TCC is not locking up.
