Doesn't shift out of first gear

A slow to moderate start shifts well, but a rapid accerleration seems to stay in the low gear too long and the engine rpm's climb until I let up on the gas.

'95 Buick Park Ave, acceleration is very slow, will climb all the way to 80; however once it hits about 60 mph, it starts climbing in rpm, and gets to 3k and starts climbing. So the questions are what...


I don't know if this holds for the 95 but my understanding is that there is an oil pump in the tranny that works to keep the clutches engaged in the lower gears and it puts out a higher pressure than the rear pump. The rear pump is used to keep the clutches engaged at higher speeds because it doesn't need the sustained high pressure. The rear pump takes over from the front in higher gears. It would seem that your 'high speed' pump is not functioning properly and should be checked.

VW 2013 Golf Automatic stays in 1st gear when driving uphill. Have to pull over after hill, stop, park and then go for engine to autocorrect. VW service center mechanic says this is how it's supposed to be...


There is no problem with the revs going to 3 or 6. The revs need to climb so you have enough power to climb the hill (if the car upshifts under heavy load it may stall). But are you saying that the only way you can get it to shift out of first is to turn off the car? if so, then that is obviously not supposed to happen. It should shift shortly after you start driving down hill.

6cyl,1994 toyota camry shuts off when shifted, but when car stays on it doesn't go with full power and over heats an shuts off. takes a couple of startups to get to stay one when its cold it shift


your catalytic converter may be clogged, if it is bolted on loosen the bolts and pry it away then try to start. if the power returns then you need to replace the catalytic converter. also is it an automatic or standard transmission? If automatic the torque converter is stalling at to low of rpm and needs to be replaced.

Can i shift the gear immediately while climbing on a high roads from high speed to low speed on a automatic transmission 1996 honda civic vti vtec? Do i need to brake first the engine before i will shift...


That is not recommended, as it could cause transmission damage. Since you have a VTEC you should get a power boost at around 5000 rpm which should make climbing hills easier and not need a shift of the transmission.

In manual mode, is the tiptronic supposed to stay in the gear you choose until rev limit is reached? Or will it shift up on its own before the limit is reached?


It will only downshift on its own, it will stay in the selected gear until the RPM is too low and downshifts or until you manually shift to a higher gear.

My Hyundai Santa fee 2003 2.7L stays in D and does not change gears as I excelerated . Climbing a hill it goes up slow as the gear remains in D position .


As you travel down the road does it shift in other gear speed of just stays in that one gear and revs high.Check the fluid condition. Santa Fe uses a VSS to change gear as the RPM increases As you put the vehicle in drive it should gear select for you. The reason I want you to check fluid condition is to make sure the transmission has not failed.The fluid should not be dark like getting black.
