This is exactly why japanese cars are funny! 90% of complaints here are all Japanese cars especially Honda EOD and Corolla

Is it that their gears are messed
Maybe its because 90% of Nigerias prefer Japanese cars

Good day Autowiz, I'm having issues with my Nissan Altima 2002 transmission. After moving for like 15 minutes the gear will stop selecting. If I park and switch off the engine and wait for like one hour and start the car the gear will select and work perfectly for like 15 minutes and will stop selecting. My mechanic doesn't really know what is wrong with the gear. He brought one gear mechanic, the gear mechanic couldn't pinpoint what is wrong with the gear.

But one thing I noticed is that I started having this problem after changing the engine. I wasn't having this problem with the former engine. The former engine was smoking that's why I changed it. The gear was brought down, washed thoroughly and serviced when the engine was changed. Since then I have been having this problem of the gear not selecting after working for like 15 minutes

I'll be glad if you can tell me what is wrong and way out!

Thanks

Have you done a scan? Check that the engine is not overheating

Hello Autowiz, I recently noticed that my car stalls when I'm on the highway, refuses to exceed 80km/hr..... Even when it does, it slowly drops back below 70km/hr. I have changed gear fluids with DW-1 for Honda (genuine) and it persists....
I use a Honda CRV 2005. Please what can I do? I have scanned the transmission... It didn't bring error codes for gear except the codes attached in photo

Please help me
Troubleshoot the current codes you are getting. That should fix the stalling

Goodevening everyone.

Please guys, I really need your help. Its very urgent.

There is this Nissan maxima 2001 model my brother gave to me. He has parked it down for almost 2 years.

So, last week...I decided to repair the car because I want to use it next year. We had to tow it to the mechanic workshop. We started working on it. Changed the brain box, the fuel pump, bought new battery, new tyres etc.

After everything, it came back to life. Nice sound. Everything seems to be alright. Then the re-wire drove it around, though, I was with him. We discovered that the gear (automatic transmission) wasn't selecting.

It works on reverse (R) , on drive (D) and on Park (P). But the gear isn't selecting (like change from 1-2).

The re-wire said we need to change the gear oil. We flushed the gear oil that was there and bought a new gear oil. We bought 8L of Holts gear oil. The gear consumed everything before it could guaged.

After changing the gear oil, we then tested the car. It was still the same problem. The gear wasn't selecting. Sometimes, it will act like it wants to select, but nope.

Please guys, what do think I should do? Please!

Thanks.
You will have to do a scan first

Hello In-House Gurus,

My issue has to do with the transmission of a 2001 Rav4 that I just got. After purchase, I had my mechanic drain the transmission fluid inside and replace with Toyota Type T-IV. I decided to take it with me on the family Christmas trip and noticed that it wouldn't go beyond gear 3 (80km/hr at 3100rpm). Even when I fire up to 4000rpm, it still wouldn't engage gear 4. All through the trip, I left the speed at 80km/hr (3100rpm).

Apart from that issue, I noticed that the Reverse gear when engaged would sometimes give noticeable jerks and the accelerator depressed. Other times, it moves fine.

I'd like your opinion on what's going on and how to rectify same. Many thanks.
That is a peculiar problem with 2001 - 2003 Rav 4. There was a TSB for that by Toyota. You need to upgrade the Ecu. I'll advice you stop driving the car to prevent damage to the transmission until you do the upgrade. If the transmission has been damaged then you will also need an overhaul. I'll be happy to help you out with this. give Autowiz a call 08060018388

I have a Toyota Camry big daddy v6 engine. The reverse gear picks quickly and works fine but the D gear won't pick unless the engine temperature rises. if I'm going out in the morning, after changing the gear to D I'll have to accelerate sometimes for about 5 minutes before it picks. please what could be wrong with my gear. Thanks in advance.
You need to have the vehicle checked. Also check the oil quality.

quote author=chnovpaul post=54310262]Hello house,

I just stumbled across this thread, and it's just the right thing at the right moment.

I've got a Volvo S80 1999 which seems to be giving me tranny issues. Here's a description of the problem.

Engine starts...select drive...and car starts rolling. However, on a free road, it moves from gears 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 without any problem. However, if for any reason I have to slow down or stop, to move becomes difficult as the gear won't downshift to 1 to allow powered movement. I will have to accelerate hard to force the car to move. Better still, I restart the engine, and it starts again from 1 till it gets to 4 and gets stuck in either 3 or 4. But if I drive on inner roads where I don't get above gear 3, I don't experience that problem.

I scanned it, and I got these codes: P0751 and P1618, which suggests a stuck solenoid A or B or something. I have read about people who have changed their gear solenoids and that fixed the problem. How to get those solenoids and who will be willing to fix these solenoids are my challenge.

Does anyone here have any suggestions as to what to do?

I'll appreciate any counsel. Thank you.

Replacing the solenoid should solve you problem. But while you are at it. Check the transmission fluid level and service or replace the oil filter

MrJames007:
Autowiz and all the TECHs in d house I greet u.

Please what is the cost for a tokunbo transmission of 2003 MDX. I'm sure the system is dead because I ignorantly used seahorse dextron 111 ATF instead of the recommended ATF. It all started when I drive the MDX the RPM will read high while the speed of the vehicle remains slow while in 'Drive'. After sometime it will pick up. It kept on that way until it finally became worst. As it is right now, the ride won't be able to climb a speed bump from a standstill even if you ground the throttle. The ATF is dirty brown(almost black) in color and it smells burnt. I've not taken it for diagnosis yet because I know it would require replacing the whole system(transmission). So I want to know the cost to expect before towing it to the workshop.
Please how much is it?
Do you sell it?
Can you help me buy it if ready?
The gear should range btw 100-150k

I have a gear problem with my Honda accord 1999. All measures have been tried and to solutions but I have made up my mind to buy another gear. I need your brotherly advice on what to look at for before buying it because our people are funny when it comes to matters like this. They claim to sell a tokunbo gear but sometime it is a repaired one. Kindly advice on the gear oil to buy, if it requires scanning after/before and other things to watch out for.

Again, lights like ABS, SRS and Engine check displays and the mechanic said if I change the gear box, they will all disappear.

Thanks for your help and other suggestion is welcome.
Changing the gear box will not make ABS and SRS lights go away they are they are different systems


When buying a gear check the colour, quality and smell of the oil in it.
then look around it for signs of earlier repair like worn bolts, gasket gum use and replaced seals

A 1992 model automatic toyota camry drives very well but all of a sudden it refuses to reverse. According to the owner the mechanic had tried working it but all in vain. What could be the problem? Could it be transmision problem?
Have a diagnosis done.but I believe a valve body change should solve the problem

Disengaging the propeller from the auxilary will help determine if the auxilary is the problem

I noticed that my car (Honda Accord 1998-“baby boy”)of late losses RPM suddenly despite my pressing of the acceleration pedal when on a journey but i get the engine power back if I really press down the accelerator pedal which after some time after changing to gears three or four the problem will start all over, now this happens erratically , I have not been able to notice any pattern like when the engine is hot etc. eg. i have driven the car all through this afternoon today and it didnt happen but happened in the morning period. The gears are also changing normally. I have just changed my ATF and engine oil and even the plugs recently. I have also cleaned the IACV but the problem still exists.
The RPM loss doesn’t happen when the car is in "Park" and I rev the car, it only happens when the car is in "drive gear"i.e when I’m driving the car. what else can I check?
Do the scan as suggested. But judging from the syptoms you need to check your fuel pump pressure , check your coil and cables for current leakage

Get your mechanic to disengage the propeller from the auxilary gear. Then try moving it and see if the propeller rotates. Then you can confirm if its the auxilary that is stuck. If it still doesn't rotate then its from your trannY( possibly the parking prawl not disengaging

Hello mods, I drive a Nissan Primera 98 model auto transmission. 5days ago, I noticed dt in d morning wen I drive out, it moves normally buh had to rev high before it will shift from gear 1 to 2. Buh it shifts normally on other gears, after som mins of movement all d gears select normally. I had d oil changed n d filter in d gearbox cleaned n coupled bak but d hard shift from 1 to 2 still persists in d morning or weneva I leave d car at rest for a while. Pls advice on Wat to do. Thanks
Since you have changed the oil and cleaned the filter I believe a valve body service or replacement should do the trick. But have the car scanned for tranny codes and post them here first so we can be sure.
