You need to troubleshoot the transmission solenoid shifts.You are a OBD1. Feedback on the transmission.So in your case there will be no data to be read. This is not uncommon for the shift solenoid B to supply little oil When this happens Solenoid A does not shif to fourth. You basically have a shift solenoid that cannot hold pressure. A good remedy is change transmission filter and fluid. This can help.Other than that solenoid will be needed.

SOURCE: 92 Chevy pickup 2x4 auto transmission shifting abruptly from 1st to 2nd gear

There are several causes for harsh shifting. If you have a vacuum modulator on the right side of the transmission make sure it isn't leaking. (see if any trans fluid is inside by turning it so the nipple for the vacuum hose is pointed down and tap on it) You can also have a broken accumulator spring...some are accessed from outside the case, some are not. An improperly adjusted "kickdown" cable can also cause this. Anything else is internal and would be related to a sticking valve in valve body or pressure loss at an internal shaft seal. You will need a manual for a breakdown of your specific unit to locate these items.

That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.

If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.

SOURCE: 96 chevy 3500 5.7 tps low voltage when cold trans

If I understand you correctly, you got a code error on the TPS (Throttle position sensor) If you can get a scanner hooked up to it, and push the gas pedal down slowely and then let off slowely you can watch it on the scanner. This will tell you if the sensor is not smooth, or has dead spots. You might want to start with this.

You should have a 4l60E in your astro van. Which is electrically controlled, so no vacuum modulator. However, to address the ventilation selector not working... look for a vacuum line exiting the firewall and going to the passenger rear of the intake manifold. You will likely find it broken or disconnected there.

Trans goes into neutral

all you can do @ this time is to drop the pan, drain the fluid, clean the pan, magnet, etc., install new gasket & filter, refill w/ the correct trans fluid, donot overfill !!!!!!!!!!!!! check for loose shift rods, adjust as required, check the lines for leaks, maybe replace neutral safety switch, see if it improved or fixed your issue ! other than that, you may need a rebuild ?????? torque converter & or pump could be ready to go ???? inside trans . have a trans shop check it out, at least thats free !good luck

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.

that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

I have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9L 360 auto trans. with 4 wheel drive. When it goes to shift from first to second it winds up to about 3,000 rpm before it shifts or won't unless i put it in neutral...

Sounds as though the valve body in the trans is stuck.I would use a additive called LUBE GUARD .You can find this at NAPA auto parts.If it doesn`t work,the trans will need to be repaired by a trans man.The additive will un~ stick the valve body,and treat the metal in he trans.It would be a good idea to change the trans fluid,and filter.And add the additive then.I hope this helps,it will work in about 5 miles or so if the additive is going to fix it.If this is at all helpful,please let us know.thank you.

92 ford explorer. runs great. replaced vaccum modulator recently. shifting from park to drive the engine revs up ( 60% of the time) and its like in neutral. then i shift back into neutral and wait till...

Sounds like the filter in the trans is plugged up. Should flush trans every 45,000 miles and replace filter and fulid. Its easier to take it in to a shop and have it done they use high pressure flush which will clean out the whole thing for about $200.
