Why is automatic transmission hard to shift?


Hard shifting in an auto trans is usually related to loss of vacuum or low transmission fluid.

Depending on the vehicle it's also possible there is an issue with the lockup converter. There is usually a solenoid in the transmission itself that controls the lockup on the converter and they tend to fail.

If you are lucky, bad shift solenoid (common failed part) may cause it to start in second. Other problem of no overdrive (ie: no torque converter lockup) could be as simple as misadjusted brake pedal switch or TCC solenoid. Where did you get this apparently bad transmission?

Transmission wont lock into od


The brake light switch has a separate wired switch in it that puts power to the OD lockup when pedal is up. When pedal is depressed the brake lights come on and the OD goes off. If this switch connected to the brake pedal is faulty or the wires are not connected, OD will not work for it isn't getting a signal to do so.

90 eagle talon esi rumbles driving down the road?


Sounds like you have a problem in the Overdrive sensor or the lockup in the converter. You should see if a scanner will identify this problem. Ask at the autoparts store about "What they show for an Overdrive switch or Servo?". Autozone, Advance, and Oreillys do free scans.

Check your transmission fluid as the trans works hard in top gear with pressure directly driving the tallest gear in the trans. Low fluid levels could be causing the converter to kick out of Lockup.

Isuzu bighorn year 1995, not changing gear after 1st gear


This is the classic symptom of a vehicle with a failed torque converter lockup solenoid.
The lockup solenoid "locks up" the transmission to the drivetrain but only operates when the transmission progresses from first gear to second gear.

The lockup switch locks the converter when driving at highway speeds. You can try replacing it, as an attempt at a cheap fix, but it sounds like your transmission is getting weak. There are different clutches and bands in your transmission for different gears, which do wear out over time.

Transmission shifts hard


Your car has the 125c/3T40 model trans,3 speed automatic with lockup.When you say you unplugged the "speedometer",if you are referring to a square electrical connector on the trans,facing the radiator,that connector is not the speedometer,but the lockup circuit inside the transmission.It is likely the lockup solenoid inside the side pan has gone bad and is malfunctioning.It is a common problem on those transmissions.You will lose some gas mileage by unhooking the connector,and eventually,years down the road,will hurt the trans from the fluid running too hot.Lockup clutch application in a General Motors lockup torque convertor helps to cool the fluid.
