Default Vue Green Line 4t45e Trans Shot????

My wife's vue seems to have lost all power to the wheels.

2008 Vue Green Line
140,000 miles

Last week, driving on the interstate with cruise, the RPMs surged and the vechicle began to decelerate. We had it towed home and the next day drove it around town. I noticed it would not shift out of gear under load, releasing the throttle it would shift into the next gear. Occasionally it would slip out of gear and the RPMs would surge until I released the throttle then slowly come down to under 3000rpm and slowly re-engage.

Took it to my company shop and poked around for a couple of hours, googling everything I could. Took her out for a run again. This time it refused to shift out of first gear. I could accelerate very very slowly until about 2-3000 rpm then it would gradually slip and the RMPs would surge freely.

I no longer have reverse, the "manual mode" does not work. Drive provides nearly zero forward acceleration, the engine seems to spin almost freely.

I have DTC code P1808 and the message "Service Hill Start Assist".

I have not yet checked the trans fluid level but with the mileage and lack of any service for almost 50k miles, I won't be surprised to find 4 gears sitting in a pile on the bottom of the pan.

Thoughts?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Check xmission fluid level first before condemning a ruined xmission.

Ok, pulled the pan. Fluid is burnt and full of the glittery guts of my transmission. I tried ordering a trans from RockAuto but they said the 4t45e they have on their site is not compatible with the hybrid. What transmission do I need?

Clearly sounds you've got FDBU in the transmission. (Fairy Dust Build Up) Usually cause by fairies partying hard inside your transmission, getting drunk and leaving a mess to clean up.

The 4T45E is the regular 5speed auto mated to the 2.4L motor, it's similar but it will with your vehicle. Technically it will bolt to your engine, but that's all about it will do, none of the connections are the same, axles, hybrid motor doesn't mount to it, etc.

I've already DM'ed you back.

LOL FDBU love it!

What about rebuilding the trans? I suppose it depends on what needs replaced. I'm hoping to pull it out this weekend and having my mechanic dig into it a bit.

We're going to try a rebuild. Will the parts for a standard 4t45e work?
