    I have this exact same problem! I have had over $800 put into it by what professionals have told me to do and is still running bad. I have had the fuel pump, catalliac converter, spark plugs, wires, and transmission worked on and none has helped what so ever. Now I have a knocking noise right under my feet on the driver's side. Can anyone please help??

    I also have been experiencing the same problem. I am so frustrated, as I now have the third computer board in and have spent close to $1500 on parts and labor. The parts are quaranteed for one year, but big deal its the labor that cost the most amount of money.

Chev auto trans slow taking off


Hello
I would rebuild the carburetor or check the intake for vacuum leaks or leaking vacuum hoses, all these cause a lean mixture of fuel and that causes hesitation. The EGR valve opening to early due to a defective delay or other control device can also cause hesitation, disconnect the EGR to confirm the problem lies there and repair if needed

Hesitation or slight bucking when shifting from 2nd-3rd.


Why are you shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear ? is this a standard or automatic? If its a automatic its normal for the torque converter to catch up with the speeds of the tranny. To save the life of your tranny try to let the tranny do the work by itself and don't shift unless in adverse weather conditions.

I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se with 99890 miles. I would like to know what rpm is the proper shift point from first to second gear? Mine shifts at like 3000 to 3500 rpm and shifts firmly is that...


Hello,well at what rpm it shifts at of course depends on how hard your pressing the accelerator at that moment,if you floor the accelerator it will shift at higher rpm (red line) but if you take off very slowly it should shift at a much lower rpm....but to answer your question 3000-3500 is a good shifting rpm( if the gauge red lines at 6000-6500 rpm) and firm shifting is a good thing,slow,sluggish and hesitant shifting is a sign of bad things to come from a tranny!! ps keep the engine oil,and transmission oil changed for long life out of your car engine and tranny. good luck and enjoy your new car......yz-maniac.

Trembling while shifting on '02 F150 King Ranch


First-NEVER add anything to an automatic trans.
Your vehicle should use Mercon V --PERIOD
Change it at least three times, to get the Lucas out.

Have the TPS Sensor checked out.
You most likely have a Tran Pack Solenoid going bad.
It is bolted to the valve body. You can do it yourself

Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when


Several things could be causing your problem:
  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles

Check Engine light & slight hesitation


If you look under the cat. converter there might be a plug that you can remove to clean it out with.If you remove the plug then just rib - up the engine a time or two .That will clean it out for you.If the code that Auto Zone pulled up was PO420 then you might start by replacing the 02 sensor that's right before the cat. converter.
