SOURCE: shifting problems

The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
Howard

SOURCE: 98 Grand Cherokee Transmission problem:

check oil level first, than check the electrical connector on the tranny. This sound like the transmission shifts from overdrive to drive. Check the wiring from the transmission to ECU and other items. If than happen again, check the shift cable, kick down cable. If that doesn't help, let the tranny be checked at a servicestation.

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only


When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff
