SOURCE: car slips out of gear after the engine warms up

Ok this is an internal transmission problem, the 1st thing to do is check the fluid level in the trans, do this only on a HOT transmission otherwise you will overfill the trans and damage it more, if the fluid is full and clean then the trans will need to be torn down, but this does sound like a low fluid level problem.

SOURCE: 400 E transmission tranny is slipping?

Check the fluid level. Make sure the engine is warm and engine is idling. If the fluid level is fine then try changing the fluid and the transmission filter. *Note: if you take it in don't let them give you any Jazz about metal shavings in the fluid. It's a scam. Metal shavings in the bottom of the pan is normal tranny wear. Tell them to just changed the filter and fluid and be on your way. Hopefully that should correct the problem.

Your transmission needs repair. Since repairing transmission is not an easy job, ask first the service
center their repair cost, and compare it a new one.
If the repair cost is just 30 to 35% of buying a new one,
Then you may consider the repairing it. Otherwise, your
best option is buying a new one.

I own 1999 lexus es 300 and the transmission is not changing from 3th to 4th gear even if i got over 4000 rpms... 'o/d' its not working when im driving 50mph i wonna go down 1 shift im turning off...

Hi sorry to tell you but it is NOT a switch :(
What it maybe though is the "Bands" sounds like they are slipping, they simply may just need tightening, this is NOT a task that one can DIY. if it is this it isn't too expensive a fix either.
You will/should take the car into a place that specialises in the Lexus model. then ask ONLY for a "Quote' as to costings and what needs to be done, get appraised of it all, and go from there.

03 jeep gr.cher. 4.7 HO 545RFE tranny when cold it takes tranny 5 - 10 min to shift into overdrive once warmed up everything works flawlessly. oil level is good. otherwise no problems at all, no slipping,...

There is a temperature sensor in the transmission to allow overdrive to work once the temp reaches a certain point. This is mainly to aid in getting the engine & trans to operating temperature, you could have a weak sensor or it could just be taking a while to warm up. Sensor is accessible without removing the trans.

good luck

1993 Lexus SC400- alternator has been replaced twice but dash lights and headlights continue to flicker especially when breaking. When driving car the first 15 min or so it shakes and makes loud grinding...

First have battery checked at a Interstate battery place or equivelant. All issues point to low voltage. A shorted battery will cause the alternator not to work.

Sc400 has lost acceleration!!!!

A simple loss of power could be contributed to several different things without knowing the exact symptoms. Throttle position sensor, a slipping transmission, faulty coil pack(s) or fuel pump can all cause power loss. Is it intermittent? constant? does the car run smoothly and just experience power loss or does it run rough? The more information provided the better I may be able to help.
