So I have a 2006 Chevy cobalt and got stuck in
some mud and wet grass, while trying to get the
car out the tires of course kept spinning. When we
finally got the car unstuck the transmission started
to have trouble. When shift from 1st to 2nd I have
to let off the gas peddle and let it shift, it does it
very aggressively, kind of pops into gear. I changed
the trans fluid but I'm not entirely sure exactly what
Sounds like the typical shift solenoid trouble that everyone has problems with. Your local tranny shop can verify by running stand alone tsets on the entire electronic transmission control system, then let you know what they found. Or you can take a chance and repalce the solenoids yourself, but it's not easy on your vehicle.
My 2010 cobalt 2LT was doing the same thing so I continued to drive it for 2 days until the check engine light came on. I checked the codes and it was shift solenoid A which is what controls the shifting between gears 1-2. I cleared the code and have not had a problem since although I have noticed that my fluid is burnt brown. The shift solenoids are extremely difficult to change on this transmission as they are located on the side of the transmission under the valve body cover which is blocked by the body of the car. Requires dismantling the front suspension, supporting the engine and transmission because you have to remove the one mount.
What is the differents in a 2005 and 2007 trans i have. A 2005 tans i want to put it in my2007 will it work or do i have to change. Some thing
When u change your oil does the transmission need to be changed to
Only if the service interval for the tranny is due. Check your owners manual for more information on service intervals.
We have a 2007 Chevy Cobalt that will shift to 1st and 2nd gears but after that it won't shift... It just whines going down the road.. what could this be??
