2000 buick lesabre transmission - high rpm's in 1st to 2nd gear

6 weeks ago had the valve body rebuilt due to hard reverse shift in cold weather - tranny shop replaced the sensors etc with all new sonnax componants. - went to several dealers over a 3 year period and they all said let the car warm up 5 -10 minutes before shifting.
Anyways - 2 weeks after rebuild i was approaching a red light - took foot off accelerator car shifts to 1st gear (10 mph) light goes green I accelerate - rpms go to 3000-3500 - does not shift to 2nd gear - then in a second or two it shifts - no big deal - today -- 4 weeks later - same thing happens- did not see check engine lite- shifting took alittle longer this time ( it is @ 20 degrees here in NY) - is that I do not drive the car alot - a converter problem - or some relay - or a valve body problem?

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.

My 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Automatic with 84K miles. It winds when I put it in reverse and I think I only have 1st and 2nd gear. Additionally it revs high, like over 3000 rpm, delays and then eventually...


It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

Does not shift from 1st to 2nd until high RPM's clunks in reverse. just started.


I would say that your transmission is getting worn out. When the clutches wear they leave extra space in between them and the steel plates, it takes more pressure to engage it and has a tendancy to clunk into gear. This will become much more pronounced in cold weather. Let the vehicle warm up before moving it and it will last longer. It could just be cold weather making this a much more pronounced condition.

1998 chevy k1500 4x4 4 speed auto.transmission wont shift out of 2nd gear. shifts fine from 1st to 2nd first and reverse is fine wont shift out of first, shift servos have been replaced.


Had a similar problem with same model pickup but would shift into third only after reaching high RPM in second @5000. There was TSB that came out about this a few years ago. I had to replace the valve body in the transmission to fix the problem and worked perfectly after that. Hope this helps!

1987 buick wont shift


Have the transmission serviced (should be done every 60,000 miles), a fluiid and filter change, there is a good chance this will cure the problem.

Transmission shifting problem


Don't know if you ever got this fixed, but my guess is it's a bad throttle position sensor.

2000 GMC 2500 4L80E hard shifting after warm up


1st and 2nd shift solenoids has sediment causing them to stick.or you got damage leaking seals. it might help if you put a little transmedic in transmission dont over fill. if your valve body full of sediment it causing valve in valve body to stick.this might help still might have to go in transmission.

1993 Buick LeSabre transmission problem


No, the modulator on a 4t60e only will adjust shift feel, not shift points. Does the trans not shift up or go it to neutral instead of 2nd? Does you speedo work? The pcm needs a speed input to shift the trans. You might have a bad VSS
