My 92 Corolla, while having 339,000 miles on it, has always run like a champ. The last 2 days though, it won't shift into it's last gear, and has some trouble shifting into other gears. It has an automatic trans, and it also seems to bog way down when I first take off. Almost like it's stuck in a higher gear. Any suggestions or Ideas? Any would help. Thanks

03 buick regal automatic transmission. the transmission is not shifting normally. does not shift into higher gear unless you accelerate very slowly. it revs up to 4000 rpm then the engine bogs down and loses almost all horsepower. reverse is fine and first seems to be normal also. stopped driving the car and as soon as we get some extra money i'll take it in. any ideas on what could be the case?

My 1995 Mustang GT has been running rough recently. It idles really rough. It'll bog down really low to about 500rpm, then it'll rev up to 1100, settle at 750, idle good for about 15 seconds, then repeat. When driving down the road in overdrive, the car will jerk (or miss) when in a higher gear. I can turn overdrive off, and it'll run perfect. There was one occurrence when I was just driving as I usually do with a normal amount of throttle, and the car wouldn't shift up until I hit about 3500 rp

2005 Mercury Montego. When accelerating from about 30 mph or higher, engine fills like it temporarily shifts into neutral, rpm's shoot way up, no power, then a couple of very loud bangs somewhere from under the hood, before getting back into gear. Has made for some very dangerous situations when getting on the highway. Happens very sporadically and only with warmer outside temperatures, not once during the winter. Any ideas? Talked with a Ford mechanic and said he had never heard of any similar


I can't believe the mechanic has said he has never heard of this situation. The friction bands in your tranny sound like they are shot. Pull you tranny dipstick when your car is hot and smell the fluid. It should not smell burnt. You will know what I ... 2005 Mercury Montego

Hi I have an 05 Cadillac SRX and the automaton transmission shudders. The sequence of events is going up hill, transmission has shifted into higher gear prior to hill. Upon very mild acceleration to maintain current speed the transmission shudders or seems to thump like it wants to down shift, or acts like its momentarily disengaging from the higher gear ...pulling a pressure plate to a higher RPM and the re-engages in the original gear with a thud or thump. It's getting worse progressively and

Shifting problem No warning everything was working fine till it happened. The automatic trany is still working with the exception of the higher gears. It will shift smoothly until it gets to 45 miles an hour. Then when it goes to shift into the next higher gear it doesn't shift. It's like the clutch engages but no shift so the trany is dis-engaged. You can rev the engine and nothing. It drops below 42 and the trany re-engages. Got any ideas????

Two problems with '97 Pontiac Bonneville 1: automatic transmission does not shift into higher gear at correct time as it once did, resulting in engine running in higher rpms before gear shift occurs. 2: car has ceased running twice while driving at at speeds below 5 mph.

1991 Volvo 240 has problem with automatic transmission not being able to shift to higher gear. Previously, orange overdrive arrow would stick or flash, and overdrive would intermittently engage and disengage. Mechanic replaced solonoid and relay switch. Now, the orange arrow works properly but there is no power to the overdrive. It won't shift into higher gear once I reach about 40-45 mph. I can't believe I paid almost $600 just to fix the idiot light! What's happening?


What is happening is the tranny is going. They can try to replace the selenoid, but really, you need a rebuild. Whomever charged you to remove the light, probably messed things up more. Volvo's typically lose overdrive before losing all the other ... 1991 Volvo 240

Have you changed transmission fluid/filter- dirty/moisture can cause strange transmission issues ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

I am having automatic transmission shift related issues with my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It does not show up on the diagnostic test and there are no indications of slipping. When first starting out, it would shift two times without a problem then would take a very long time to shift into the other gears. This is very annoying especially when entering an expressway, althouth the vehicle is able to maintain high speeds, it does so at high RPMs before it finally shifts into higher gears (whic

I recently started noticing that when I shift gears, the RPMs go really high (even when I am going very slowly). This problem is especially noticable when I go from a stand still to 15mph in first gear. The RPMs quickly "reve" over 30. As I accelerate, the RPMs reve even higher and then suddenly go back to normal as I gain speed. I notice this same problem as I shift from first gear to second and second gear to third. Any ideas why this is happening? Any ideas what might be the cause

I have a 2002 Jetta Turbo and the anti-slip (the triangle warning light) often turns on when I hit the brakes. Once on, the gear shifting is affected and I am pitched forward when switching from 1st to 2nd gear and 2nd to 3rd gear. Higher gear shifts, there's just a thud. The dealership said it was the alternator and I spent over $750 getting it fixed - a week later the problem came back. Any ideas?

I have a 1997 Camry. There are several problems. Starting with the Gage Fuse. Apparently 7 different circuts run on in. Everytime I shift past Neutral, the fuse blows. Sometimes when I hit the gas, the fuse blows. All the gages go dead, the alternator stops charging the battery and the car dies. When I put a new fuse it, it blows as soon as I shift or hit the gas. And when its blow, the car won't shift into 2nd gear. The engine just reves higher and higher. Sometimes when I put a new one in, t

I have had my tiburon less than a year but about a month ago the transmission started to act weird. At first it began shifting between i think third and fourth gear which made the rpms go higher than they should. after about five minutes the transmission decided to stay in 3rd gear and wouldnt shift even when the car slowed down or stopped. Later i got back in my car the problem did not re-occur for about a week but acted slightly different. the transmission shifted between 3rd and 4th but began
