Sounds like the transmission is downshifting to passing gear. Might the electronic control module for the transmission. Have someone pull the codes from the computer, I'll bet there is one in there for the transmission.

My 2005 mini cooper will not stay in overdrive between speeds of 55-60 MPH.


Try an owners forum before you call the dealer. My guess is there's a speed control unit problem.

Where is ignition distributor engine speed input circuit located on 2002 Kia optima


Well the 4 cyl engine uses a coil for each cylinder, and the 6 cyl uses one coil for all 6. Both systems use signals from the engine computer to fire the coils. So the RPM circuit would involve the engine computer. No distributor is used.

High rpm at highway speed


No idea why you would drive that fast,
but 2800 is about right at that speed

Did you just get the car & never own one that
went to 2800 at that speed

Tap the brake around 55 & see if the rpm goes up,
indicating that torque converter lock-up is working

Don't do that at 70 mph

Whats the meaning of (O/D off ) kia spectra 2002 ?


the "O/D OFF" indicator light let's you know that your car is not in over drive. if you are just driving around town at relatively low speeds you probably wont notice a difference whether the button is on or off.but the next time you are driving on the freeway(55+mph) and want a little extra speed(overtaking another vehicle),click that button to the off position and you should hear the car shift into a lower gear which will instantly give your car more torque at a higher rpm to help you complete your pass ie- your cars"passing gear"

A 2002 Kia Spectra. When trying to get up to highway speed, it seems to not shift into the highest gear and will turn about 3200 rpm for 55 mph. In addition, the driver seems to have to accelerate more...


sounds like the trani is in limp mode take it to autozone and have the codes checked in the trani. I am sure it will tell you that there is a lack of comunication to the shift soliniods, if so pull the large wire harnes that is connected to the trani and clean the connection reconnect and try again. that should clear it up, if not look at buying a set of shift soliniods.

91 honda accord between 50 and 55 it feels like the transmission shifts up and down conststantly but the rpm only moves from 2100 rpm to 2000 rpm but over or under that speed it runs fine.


Your transmission is probably jumping in and out of "torque converter lockup". The lockup is the most efficient mode because 100% of the power from the engine goes to the wheels and is not lost in the torque converter. It only goes into lockup at higher speeds, but will jump out if the computer senses it needs more power (at the higher engine RPMs) to maintain or increase your speed. I recommend either going faster or slower if this is bothering you. :-)

Loss of Power at Freeway Speeds


Sounds like itr is not getting enough fuel. Try or check the fuel filter for dirt or water, and also check the fuel pump pressure to see if it meet factory specs.
