Well the grandprix comes with a transmission that was poorly built. i've seen it before. i'd check your transmission fluid for qaulity. if its bad the car will do that. in automatics. the trans fluid acts like a clutch to help shift. check the vacuum line into the transmission shift silenoid. and there is a couple of sensors to check on it too. problem here is its really hard to give you a solution without seeing the car itself.

When I start the engine, the word SPORTS flashes on the instrument panel for a few seconds. What does ths mean?


It means your car has various modes for the way it drives. In Sports Mode, it revs higher in each gear and changes gear quickly giving you fast acceleration. It will often lock onto the gear when your take your foot off the brake to give you engine braking and keeping the wheels in contact with the engine rather than free-wheeling.

The opposite is Ecomony, which changes gear as early as possible and keeps the revs low with smooth changes.

In the middle is Normal mode.

Hope that helps.

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?


do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me

I would consider changing the vehicle speed sensor. When they go bad, they can really throw out a lot of bad data to the computer, resulting in unexpected behavior like you're experiencing. They're only around $20-$25. I hope this helps! :)

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.
