my 2005 pontiac grand prix all of a sudden will not go into drive gear

Asked by Sep 14, 2013 at 04:24 PM about the Pontiac Grand Prix

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

it only drive on 2nd  1st or 3rd gear and it goes into reverse fine, i know there was a sensor a year ago located on or near the transmission that was causing it to jerk while driving and it was replaced and it started doing it again on and off dont know if that was a sign of the tranny or not, i just had an oil change done 3 days ago no flushes or anything then all of sudden this happens, could they have put the wrong fluids in my tranny section or over filled that could have caused this issue?

That style of trans is known for solenoid problems, so it actually sounds like they are acting up again, problem is you will have to have a professional check it out just to be sure.

These transmissions are notorious for failure. If you're planning on keeping the car I'd suggest replacing the transmission with a rebuilt unit. HTH. -Jim
