Default 2007 Terraza Tranny problem

While turning into my driveway, my Terraza stopped pulling. If you put the shifter in D or 3, the engine revs but no movement. If the shifter is in 1 or 2 it takes off normal. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on. It was odd that it just happened out of the blue with no warning. Anything to check without having to pull the transmission?

then could be a solenoid or maybe the accumulator.
sgp358 will be your best bet to get this figured out

Thanks sawgunner, hopefully sgp358 will see the thread. I'm hoping for solenoid and not band, Fingers crossed!

Thanks Bill. Luckily that article says that it is more likely to happen with 00-02 models than 03+. I'm still holding out hope but that doesn't make it look good.

If the 2-3 solenoid is stuck on, you will only have 1 and 2, 3 and 4 will not work. I'm putting my money on the solenoid. Looking at the service manual that is the only thing I see that will cause no 3 or 4.
