You should have a Tranny Cooler on this Truck. Look on the Front of the Radiator through the Grill. Do you see a Smaller Radiator attached to the Large one? If so, This needs to be Replaced Thus Fixing the Overheating Problem.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY MY CHRYSLER 300 DOES NOT WANT TO SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE WHEN ITS COLD OUTSIDE SHIFTS FINE AFTER THE CAR IS COMPLETELY WARM AND DOES SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE WHEN IT IS COLD AFTER MY RPMS HIT...


This is a normal condition, the nag transmission control module needs to see a certain temperature of the fluid before shifting into overdrive this is due to fluid viscosity, if the fluid is too thick
due to cold temps the pump cannot supply enough pressure to fully engage
the overdrive clutch, if it did you would have slippage in overdrive

you need a transmission fluid and filter changed.because if filter stopped up.transmission fluid little thicker in cold climate make it hard circulate through filter.when engine and fluid get warmer fluid get thinner where it can circulate through filter cause transmission to shift correctly.

Slow Shifting Transmission When Cold


thats is normal for almost all the toyota's
the trans has to get to operating temp before it starts to shift normal.

4l60e trans. will not shift out of 3rdgear...


Have it scanned. Have the person who scans it pay particular attention to the Transmission temp sensor. If the Transmission temp sensor tells the ecm the transmission is cold, it won't shift to 4th. Also if it thinks the transmission is too hot it won't allow a 3-4 shift.
