I just had auto transmission changed in 94 Toyota corolla 4 cyl, before it shifted to 2nd around 20mph and high gear around 50mph, this transmission shifts to 2nd at 25mph (which I think is a little high for city driving) and to high gear at 45mph, AND when it goes into second it is a little hard and quick , not smooth, my questions, is this ok?, or do you think troubles are around corner on this one?

2000 KIA Spectra/Shuma 1.5 Auto Transmission not changing gear. Hi, My auto transmission just started giving problem 2 days ago. First time I notice the problem is when moving off from stop in "D", the gear seems to be on 2nd gear so it's hard to take off. If I then manually shift to 1st gear, then the power is there. While driving the gear also seem to be stuck on 3rd gear; not shifting to 4th. But these does not occur all the time. Sometime it ok. I notice this. If the gear is giving problem,

My 1999 Olds Intrigue, 3.5 motor, auto trans, heats up when going uphill. Going downhill, or on a flat road, with the same number of RPMs, it does not. Recently had the engine cooling system flushed, and a trans service done. Transmission sometimes acts like it doesn't know what gear to go to, and shifts hard. Also, there is a metal, silver tube that loops under the radiator, near a frame cross member. It is pinched almost shut. It starts somewhere up in the engine compartment, goes almost the

Transmission problem I have a diesel 2L-T Hilux Surf(4 Runner), and the automatic transmission is not responsive i.e. it does not shift down quickly. But the bigger problem is, that at higher speeds (80 kmph+) if i have the motor gunned, the auto trans keeps shifting gears up and down and there is hardly any acceleration. Plus there is a strange vibration when i touch abt 2700+ rpms. I feel a lack of power in low gears as well especially if the air-conditioning is on. I've had the pump serviced

I have a 94' Toyota pick up truck. 2wd, 5spd and my transmission or something is grinding pretty often, I might shift too quick. But it sounds like a roaring while driving, and sometimes it sounds like rollerblades on asphalt or something. My clutch isn't too old, but the transmission is original. It is really hard to get into 4th gear as well, and sometimes pops out of gear. Thanks

I have a 1996 f-150 4x4 with a straight 6 auto. The previous owner had the trans rebuilt just before I bought it. Ever since I bought it the fluid looks like new but it shifts really hard from one gear to the next and when you shift from drive to reverse it engages really hard. I believe that it was truely rebuilt but I just wonder if there was something forgotten or improporly hooked up. I'm thankful for any tips you may offer.

1998 isuzu rodeo has intermittent hard shift from 2nd to 3rd gear and extreme hard downshift from 3rd to 2nd gear. When this happens it may hard shift only a couple of times OR it may do the same thing for a day or two OR most recently it may continue for several days. Sometimes the hard shift occurs immediately after the car is started but sometimes it may be shifting smoothly with the engine & transmission "warmed up" and all of a sudden the "hard shift" begins. The downshift is a loud grind

Transmission We have been noticing that our 2000 gmc sometimes will shift really hard as it goes in to 1st gear, and then it will begin a slight howling noise. Not to long after this occurs, the check engine light will come on. The guys at autozone hooked it up to a OBD2 tester and the readout says code P1870 for a tranmission problem. Sometimes the check engine light will go out on its own. Any ideas what would cause this and how it can be fixed?
