The input and output vehicle speed sensors (VSS) are under the aircleaner. You have to take out the air cleaner to get to them. I purchased mine on eBay for $25 for both of the. Any backyard mechanic can change them. I hope this helps you.

The most common cause of Dodge transmissions going into limp-in mode most of the time are the input and output speed sensors. These are relatively inexpensive to replace, and will most likely take care of your problem, provided there are no defect wiring issues, or internal transmission problems. Still, the best way to handle the situation would probably be to go to your nearest dealer. At least armed with information, no one can take advantage of you. The sensors are usually about $60-$80 for both, and the dealers will usually charge about 1-1.5 hrs. labor to change them.

The trans. computer is detecting a problem with it and the trans. is in "limp in" mode. When the trans. computer detects a problem with the trans., what happens is the computer will not allow the trans. to shift into the next gear. The reason why it does this is so the car can be driven to the nearest repair facility. You're not supposed to go more than 40 MPH while the trans. is in this mode.

My 1994 Subaru Legacy Touring (Turbo) Wagon is not shifting properly when taking off. It does not shift until 3500 rpm at 20 mph. The initial shift should be around 2000 rpm. All other gears seem...


Hi,
The 1st>>2nd shift on the Subaru 4EAT automatic transmission can be more abrupt, but 3500 is too high.
Is there any delay when shifting from Park to Drive?
Does the Power light flash on startup? If it does, you can pull the codes by following these instructions.

This trans has 'bands' that can be adjusted. I'm not 100% sure they affect the 1st>2nd gear shift, but maybe they need adjusted.

Take a look @ ultimatesubaru.org/forum and http://bbs.legacycentral.org. 2 sites dedicated to Subarus.

Good luck,
Td

I have 2006 scion xb and when driving the rpm stays around3500-4000 when running 65 mph can it be modified to run lower rpm


3500 is about normal for an xb at 65 mph. My previous ride was a pickup and rolled at about 2000-2500 on the highway. But the XB's engine is way more "tightly wound". Your rpm gage should run at about half of of your speed...ie: 70 mph will be about 35 (3500) rpm, 80 mph will be about 40 (4000) rpm. Freaked me out when I first got the thing, but after researching it Ive found out that with a stock engine it actually runs more efficient at the higher RPM's. The 06 boxes won't redline until 6000 rpm, so unless you are driving 120 on a frequent basis you're good. You can probably have it modified to run lower, but you will lose the awesome gas mileage and overall it is not going to improve the way it runs, and would have no benefit............

No Engine Warning Light, but low engine power/shifting problems


well they dont have a timing belt they have a timing chain which is nice but i would take it to a mechanic with a ford scan tool to diagnose it its really hard to diagnose these newer vehicles over the net these days! it could be so many things from throttle position sensor to rev limiter issue!

Will not accelerate past 40 mph


simple tune up could do it, or a bad MAF or MAP sensor could give similar problems
