My car is a 94 cavalier 2.2L automatic. The car doesnt seem to shift correctly. I am a DIY guy but cant figure out the issue. The transmission isnt shifting as i said. It will go into first. when it should shift at per say 35-40mph, the rpms continue to rise instead of shifting. After about a 2 second delay it will then shift to 2nd gear. It repeats this. Per say I am in first gear and floor it, RPMs will raise sharply (to be expected) but the MPH gain is nearly worthless. As if it

When I get up to about 55 to 60mph my RPMs stay at about 2800 to 3000. Since I've been surfing the internet, it sounds like it's not shifting into 4th. Which apparently could mean it's one of my solenoids sticking on my transmission. Just wondering which one or if there is a way to diagnose the problem before i go ripping into my transmission. Also, I dont know if it's has ever had a trans flush and I've heard it could cause a whole new can of worms if I crack into and change the fluid. Please h

88 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si Automatic. After the car warms up, The S3 light blinks constantly, then the check engine light came on. The car boggs down then accelerates about 300 rpms at hwy speed. When taking off it struggles with the peddle to the floor. Acts like the transmission is having trouble shifting. I found the following codes from the ECU: Code 1 Oxygen content A, Code 2 Oxygen content B, Code 8 TDC position sensor, & Code 17 Vehicle speed sensor. Could a transmission problem cause these

My buddy just inherrited and '91 toyota celica st with a manual transmission and 300,000+ miles on the engine. Unfortunately he isnt very good at driving stick shift and has stalled quite a few times. The car will not start or attempt to turn over at all. We have tried jump starting it, without any luck. I was thinking it could be the clutch although i dont know too much about cars. Any ideas why it wouldnt be starting? thanks -JB

I have an 86 mustang, I know I need to fix the carburator, but the mechanic I take my car normally to, said that my transmission is leaking. My friends dad said that it could be a certain plastic part that caused this type of problem in the transmission if it were to go bad. I was just wondering if anyone could let me know what part this was and I have not noticed anything wrong with the shifting in the transmission.

My 1995 Plymouth Acclaim with the 3-speed automatic will not shift on its own. In Drive only first gear works, even at very high rpm. In D2 only second gear works, so at least I can drive 40-45 mph. After replacing seized shift cable, the steering column shifter will not travel to D1. Reverse works. I am unaware of any service done to the transmission in last 7 years. Could problem be - fluid added to full point when transmission not hot? Could problem be - the lockup clutch's solenoid swi

Tranny concerns my truck is coming up on 155k miles. its got old bones and i realize that. but the main issues im having now is when i shift gears(its an automatic)say from park to reverse or reverse to drive, the RPMs jump up from about 1000 up to 1500 RPMs then comes back down to 1000. also it is shifting to 2nd gear super rough, shifting to 3rd and 4th is nice and smooth. and it idles at about 200-300 RPMs. could just be me but that seems a little low. im not sure what to do about this or eve

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 3500 Automatic transmission. It won't shift out of 1st gear. Then sometimes it just shifts perfectly. I changed the transmission fluid and filter and drove it around the block. it shifted fine. then later drove it again and it wouldn't shift out of 1st gear. Could it be the governor?

1994 Ford Ranger (2.3 Automatic)TRANSMISSION My problem is with my transmission. Headlights weren't working--we messed around with the fuses in the power distribution box to see if any were bad. Didn't see that any were--lights just started working again--the next day the transmission goes out completely--shift to drive--nothing--just revs. Could we have inadvertantly messed with something that could make the transmission go out--it hasn't been slipping or giving any warning indications--

I have a 99 rt dakota and the transmission isnt shifting properly and it will not go into overdrive. On a normal take off it shifts okay but not right and still doesnt go into overdrive and the faster i go the higher the rpms go. On a full throttle take off the transmission doesnt want to shift at all and it hits the rev limiter until i let off the gas and then it shifts. I have checked the speed sensor, checked the adjustment on the tv cable, and i have also checked the tps which im not sure if

2000 Saturn SL-1 The automatic transmission shifts hard, up shift and down shift. When I say hard, I mean slams into gear. The car was in an accident. (REAR) The collision was hard enought to break the motor and transmission mounts. Those were replaced, but the hard shift problem persists. Also, the car could have been sitting in its wrecked state for around a year before I got it.


I am worried about the mechanical components of the transmission particularly the torque converter found inside it. The solenoid found in the transmission could also be at fault.\015\012\015\012\015\012It would be best to check first the ... Saturn SL1

2001 Ford Escape XLT (4WD, V6) Automatic Transmission. It seems that when I shift to Drive the transmission does not want to go into first gear. If I manually shift down to first gear it works OK. I can drive by starting in first gear, shifting up to 2nd gear manually, and then shifting to Drive. The O/D Light blinks on and off on the dash yet when I push the O/D button on the end of the shifter it does nothing. Does anyone know what would cause this? Why would it go into first gear manually,
