also it sometimes jerks into reverse when shifting into gearView attachment 828571093 Hi guys I’m new to the group and I have a couple questions. I got my 04 LS with 205,000 miles With some hard shifting. It will rev up until I let off to shift into 2nd, and it sometimes shifts hard into 3rd, and no overdrive. Now I’ve heard solenoids May be bad, or the servos can be bad. I’m just unsure what to do kinda. I daily it still and it’s been driveable for almost a year. It’s a great car, runs great and quiet but the tranny just needs to be fixed. If you need to ask questions about what it’s doing go ahead I’ll be on the thread to solve this problem. Thank you and happy holidays!
Have you checked your transmission fluid color? If the overdrive is out I’m going to have to agree with Joegr on this one and say I’m leaning towards a full transmission rebuild...what you could do for a band aid is drain a quart of fluid and replace with a quart of Lucas transmission fix Fluid it may add a thicker lubricant to allow the torque converter to function better...but if the color is black or darkish brown and it smells like death burnt and then death burnt again you’re unfortunately looking at a rebuild...but if the engine is still quiet and the car’s suspension is holding up ...and you know what is in her I say go for the $1500 dollar rebuild and get another 100,000 miles out of her...but the only way you will truly know is going to a shop ( NOT AMMCO ) that has a proper scan tool that can read live data of the transmission...Its hard for me to believe your torque converter is locking if the over drive went outA
