Code p 1870 refers to transmission component slipping
the transmission may need clutch and band adjustment or a pump pressure test check as it may not be producing enough pressure to keep components in place

SOURCE: i have a 94 silverado with a 4l60e trans. 1st and

how it sounds that the solenoids are going bad i would take it back to the shop were you had it rebuilt and have them redo it most shops give a one year warranty on the rebuilds if so they should be able to fix it for free.

SOURCE: wont shift into 2nd gear revs high until it finally goes into 3rd

If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have the blazer scanned for any DTC codes that is related to the transmission issues. It could be a fault sensor, bad wires, or bad solenoid in the valve body. The scan should help indicate if there is an electrical issues or it's going to be mechanical. You can try adding a transmission additive to flush out the system and then replace the transmission filter and oil. Make sure you flush out all the transmission oil, it could be as simple as the 2nd and 4th solenoids are seized with dirt and not activating. Good luck and keep me posted. The solenoid is in the valve body and is not that expansive for the parts, you just have to find a good transmission shop that will fix this simple problem and not try to get you to put in a new transmission.

Hi...your problem is usually caused by the ****** shift linkage being stuck in two gears at the same time which can sometimes happen from shifting out of sequence. In order to fix this you need to get under the vehicle and manually shift one of the trannys linkage levers into a different position to free it so you will be able to shift normally once again. NOTE: Be extremely careful when working under the vehicle and take every precaution to ensure your safety first and foremost!

Why won't a 1995 nissan pathfinder shift into third gear

The transmission is hanging up in 2nd gear and not shifting to 3rd, 4th etc. It does not downshift to 1st when the car comes to a stop. I can manually downshift to 1st, upshift to 2nd, but it will not...


The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist look it over and read the error codes. How do your transmission fluid levels look?

Over drive wont work 88 c1500


Does it have 2nd gear? Are all your other shift points real high? It should shift into 2nd between 12 and 15 and shift into 3rd about 28 and 4th at about 42.
