Your tranny is going out. VERY common with the 8 cylinders. Have seen it many many times. You should still be able to drive it for a year or so before it goes completely.
When it revs up just let off the gas til the rpm's go down, and then slowly give gas again.

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.

No third gear!!!


Check the gear linkage adjustment is correct.
Ensure 3rd gear throw is fully engaging when selected.
You can check this without the motor running,- depress clutch and carefully go through the gear selections - ensure when selecting 3rd you can feel selection detent (passing over the syncohub detent pawl).
If the problem persists, and no fault can be found with selection adjustment, you probably have worn gearbox bearings, or broken synco energiser spring internal to the gearbox.

1990 f150 transmission up shift to early


Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.

Transmission not passin to third gear


Can you shift it manually with the shifter? Like have it in second gear and put it in 3? If it shifts check vacuum hose to modulator.

Transmission passing gear keep either getting stuck or it dont work because the motor keep idling up in first gear


this could be relative to many things, however you should check a few things before asessing the possibilities. When you put the truck in gear from park, Drive (overdrive) Should be the third notch you come to. so your in park, pull down clunk you're in reverse, clunk you're in neutral, clunk, now you are in drive. If you dont feel/ hear four notches/ clunks, you should be in overdrive. If you take off and it over revs 1st ( you shouldn't see more than 15 mph before it shifts on a stock transmission unless your flooring it and taking off fast) and then hard shifts to second gear, progresses to third gear normally, but wont progress into overdrive, it may be related to your vaccum advance, your shift linkage, or even possibly your timing. From the sounds of it, I would say vaccum advance is the likely cause, if it is otherwise in stock condition. If this is the case it could be as simple as reconnecting a vacum hose to the distributor. Should be to the left hand side of the cap, between the cap and intake manifold as you are looking at the firewall.

Not shifting into passing gear


hi passing gear is actually your transmision drpping down to second gear.if you hit the gas hard.if you hit the gas lightly it will only drop out of overdrive and go into third and not go into passing gear.

1985 4Runner 22RE (injected / auto trans) has NO accelaration.


From minor problem to major problem. Try to replace your spark plug wires, rotor cap and the spark plugs, also it can be the injectors, plus if possible, try to replace the fuel filter which is located low under your EFI unit. If problem not solved, then it will probably be your A/T trans.
