Recently paid $1500 for automatic transmission rebuild. Now the engine over-revs when shifting from 2nd to 3rd, particularly when accelerating rapidly

    I took it back once and they adjusted a cable. It solved the problem for about a week, then it started doing it again

    Thanks. I will!

    The cable adjustment only controls "when" the trans will shift. The vacuum modulator controls how hard it shifts, and is also adjustable. What you are experiencing is called "shift flaring", and the transmission shop should know how to fix it with a very simple modulator adjustment. The 722.X series transmissions are pretty notorious for this.

    Emissionwiz is right, this can / will destroy the trans in a very short time if not taken care of.

They did something wrong, take it back, this is a serious problem and will damage the forward clutch pack if you let it continue un-repaired, that will mean another $1500

    Make them fix it, don't let them keep putting u off with these adjustments, you paid for an overhauls and a working trans.

Dodge Ram 3500 skips from 1st to 3rd gear, had rebuild after still the same issue. Any advice?


Governor pressure controls the 1st and 2nd shifts. After that is the 3 and 4 solenoids. you would need to look at the pressure when driving(takes a scanner). pressure is 20 to 30 PSI from 1st to 2nd, depends on acceleration. After that the pressure will jump to 100+ psi. Did you replace the governor solenoid and sensor? They are on the passenger side of the transmission and sit in a block that detaches from the valve body.

Automatic transmission


I would be looking for vacuum hose leaks to the vacuum actuator on the transmission
what you describe indicates either no vacuum or a faulty actuator that causes a shift in gears in the transmission not to be effected
run the fault codes to see if any other sensor ot TCM is involved in the problem
this is all indicated by the changes that occur when you ease of the accelerator and it changes gears
