Hi bug,

It sounds like your low on tranny fluid, top of the tranny fluid to full level and see if it helps.

What is causing transmission to only work in 2nd and 3rd and reverse.? in 2nd and 3rd it feels like its trying to downshift into 1st. In 1st there is a little resistance but it doesnt move

How does your transmission fluid look and smell? If it is dark and smells a little burnt, the transmission is very likely toast. If it is still clear and red, you should let a transmission specialist diagnose it.

Violent 5-4 downshift

Try first to put tranny in learning mode by placing key in on position and depressing accelerator to floor and hold for threee seconds. If that doesnt help contact dealer concerning a flash update. Other than that it's time for serious considerations.

When sitting at a light upon takeoff the engine reves up like its in neutral and slams into gear (automatic ******),or whilke driving at speed upon taking foot off gas seems to downshift

The first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level. If the level is low, you need to find out WHY. It is leaking somewhere...ether from the transmission itself or the transmission cooler lines. If the fluid level is OK, then you need to scan your onboard computer system for possible fault codes that will lead you to the cause of your problem.

Im getting ready to change the transmission on my 92 gmc jimmy (4.3 vortec v-6 automatic). I got a transmission from a junkyard and ineed to know how to set the torque converter and the throttle cable when...

put the torque converter on the gearshaft ans spin it to the right while pushing on it... it should slide back about 2-3 times.. youll know when its all the way on... the throttle doesnt have anything to do with your tranny... i think your refering to the kickdown cable.... leave it set like it is.. when your driving, and hit the gas hard, if it downshifts REAL early or doesnt seemto down shift thats when you need to adjust it to where it feel like it downshift right...
hope this helps

97 Honda Odyssey Auto transmission downshifts

Try checking your timing to solve the ping problem, your timing might be too far advanced. For the downshifting problem, I have this same issue on my odyssey, On the top of your efi manifold you will see 2 wires that control your throttle, One of them extends to the transmission and basically lets it know when you are pressing firmly on your gas pedal, telling it to downshift. I would adjust it so the cable has some more slack in it, therefore requiring a harder press on the pedal before downshift, and hopefully a sooner upshift. You can also slightly adjust idling problems if the van is running high while in park or drive while sitting. As for the gas vapor purge code, I would first try replacing the egr valve, its only a couple bucks and takes no more than 5 minutes.

1991 bmw 520i transmission goes into 'safe' mode

quoted from
" Transmission locks in "limp" mode - 3rd gear so you can "limp" home or to your nearest dealer."

"Things to check before even contemplating a transmission overhaul:
Check electrics - Alternator and battery.
Replace DME Relay and Fuel Pump Relay - not expensive.
Remove disassemble, clean and reassemble gear selector switch - If it looks beyond saving, replace ($200)
Service the transmission ($130 from a specialist) and check/replace transmission speed sensor ($90)"
