Depends on what auto tranny you have. If you take it to an tranny shop and have an exchange rebuilt put in be prepared to shell out $3500.00 for replacement.

1989 jeep cherokee 6cly auto trans shifts great after gets hot 10-15 min. but when cold shift very high 4500 rpms 1st-2nd and wont shift to 3rd almost like stuck in passing gear. when hot shifts great no...


Sometimes you tranny may just be low in which case add fluid. Be sure to check while engine is hot, most likely in park or nuetral. It will say on dipstick. Also if you havent changed the filter you may want to do that, sometimes crud gets built up and it will not circulate well unless hot. If you change the filter, be careful as usually there is not a drain plug and the only way is to drop the pan. If you do go that route I advise buying a drain plug and drill a hole in pan and replace with plug so in the future theres less mess and a whole lot easier job. Hope this helps. Be sure to read directions on drilling hole for plug and be sure its drilled somewhere on the pan that doesnt get in the way of anything underneath.

Transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.


Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.

My automatic focus sometimes will not go into gear properly


This may be caused by fluid starvation from a plugged trans filter, also a shift solenoid inside the trans may be sticking, I would recommend u change the trans fluid and filter (required at 60,000 miles), also go to a Kragen auto or any chain parts store like it and ask to have a code test run on the powertrain control module , it is free.
