Shift tranny into 1-2 it pulls away fine then to 3rd and drive fine. When you slow down if you don't down shift it yourself it will stall becuase the kick down is not working.
If you try to put it into drive to "get going" it revs up to about 2,000 rpm and "gets going".
I have tried adjusting the throttle cable kick down under the hood by pressing the release button and pushing the cable back then setting the throttle to full and allowing the cable to return. Still no help.
What else can I try or do I need to drop the pan and look inside?

when a tranny has this sort of problem the modular unit or actuator piston is registering the tailshaft/ engine speed ratio at the point when a shift is required. Have a auto shop check the pressures in the tranny as it may be a mechanical adjustment problem or if electrical it may be the wires in the oil or the unit itself
I want you to check something. there is 2 cables on the throttle body. 1 cable is to the gas pedal and the other is your a kick down cable . the kick down down in the front of the transmission if you look under the battery it does in the front of the transmission there. see if the kick down moves easy if you open the throttle body by hand. the problem with those transmission is it relis on the cable the shift the gears up . if you steped on the gas pedal that cable is to pull levers inside to up shift. there is not shift solenoids in those transmission. see many in my shop
Hi, Four wheel drive is a traction devise. Not a braking devise. So, no it will not help you stop faster. That said, on slippery conditions when you let off the gas the extra, "traction" will help slow you down if you do not slide. Hope this helps you out. Wayne
It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph
I have a 2002 Hyundai Sonata and I had the same problem. But mine would always shift into 3rd gear and STAY there until I turned the car off. I took it to a Hyundai dealer and he had to rewire a speed sensor on top of the transmission. Apparently a little animal got up in that tight little spot and gnawed on my sensor wires. The car has run fine since. To make a long story short, it might be your speed sensor on your transmission.
