1998 Prizm starts off in 3rd gear, will not use 1st gear unless you manually engage


Asked by Jan 20, 2014 at 08:47 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet Prizm 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I assume this automatic 3 speed transmission is electronically controlled.  Is this controlled by the ecm or a power train module?

1 Answer


Sound like the power train module is defective. Can you swap yours with another one that works?
