If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive

I have a 1997 Kia Sportage (#KNAJA5278VA787759). The automatic transmission used to not shift into overdrive at 60 km/hr, but only after the engine was warm--after about 5 km of driving. The problem seemed confined to the highest gear only--shifting through the lower gears was smooth and predictable--and once shifting began into overdrive performance was good through out the entire range. I recently had major engine work done and now the transmission never shifts into overdrive. The performan

Transmission shifts from 3rd to what seems like neutral while driving (engine revs, but no acceleration). Happens around 35-40 mph and shift fine from 1-2 and 2-3, but won't shift 3-4, always goes into this netural state. It's an Automatic Transaxle, 1.5L SOHC, and the transmission has always had rough downshifts but nothing to this extreme. Is this a sensor, since it always happens, or is it something bigger?

I have '99 Honda Accord automatic transmission. I've found lots of people complaining/asking about similar issues as mine but not quite. It is having issues shifting. At the time it needs to shift it will have loss of power and then it will jerk into gear. It ONLY happens when it's warmed up. There's no issues driving for the first 5 miles.

We have a 1986 Dodge Lancer that runs fine when I first start it. As soon as it warms up, the motor bogs down. We have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, catalytic converter and put tranny fluid in it (although the transmission shifts fine). We were told that the modulator on the transmission may need to be replaced, but, as I stated, the tranny shifts just fine, not too rough and not too soft and the gears do not slip at all. It almost seems as though it is not getting enough air flow through

Overdrive disengages I have a 1987 Toyota pickup 22r carburated not fuel injected pickup two wheel drive with column shift automatic transmission. My problem is with the overdrive automatic transmission. While driving the truck I hear what sounds like a relay clicking and then the overdrive disengages. This occurs more frequently in warm weather. I can reengage the overdrive with the button which is located on the column shifter and it may or may not say engaged. What's going on?

I have a 1998 Chevrolet C1500. 305 ci V8 with 4-speed automatic transmission. Aside from minor wear and tear, the truck has been great to me. Odometer reads almost 329,500 Km, and the block and transmission are original to the vehicle. The transmission was having very rough shifting (1st into 2nd mostly), and would 'bang' when accelerating from a slow speed like approaching a red light. It now whines whenever the engine runs.

I have a 1990 Ford F350 Automatic that shifts hard or not at all. Shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and sometimes it won't shift to 3rd and I have to pull over. This starts happening when it is driven for about 20 to 30 minutes when the truck is warm. The transmission was rebuilt 2 years ago. I've taken it to the same shop and they couldn't find anything wrong. They changed the fluid and hooked it to their computer. Any suggestions?

Hello I rebuilt my automatic transmission gear one month ago. I changed all clutches, band, regulator pressure valve, 1st accumulator with the spring which was broken before, torque has been repaired. The gear behaved like new and very smooth the first days.
