I have an 02 Mitsubishi Spyder Eclipse GT 6.0 liter Automatic trans. everytime I crank it it cranks perfectly, but once i put into gear the engine starts revving, but it will not go ANYWHERE

Asked by May 06, 2014 at 02:08 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It happens in Reverse, Drive, and in the Manual side.  I spoke with a guy from AutoZone
and he told me that it sounds like the Transmission Speed sensor, but I am trying to
figure out all possibilities that it could be and trying to replace them and get the car
running the streets again

I'm sorry it's a V6 3.0 liter

It does have to do with the transmission but its not the speed sensor your car is going into fail safe mode which prevents the car from shifting. But when it does shift it jerks the car after so much of that the car will stay in 3rd gear. Go have your trans rebuilt. It costs a pretty penny but you want it fixed properly. I have the same car and that happened to me to
