Sounds like either a bad speed sensor or controller. shift points are too high, should be at 2000 or slightly less. if fluid is good and clean and shifts do not flair, check those control units. Not sure about calibrate...could mean out of calibration...Id ask
another tech about that. (i don't know everything!)

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

Jeep cherokee jerks when shift into overdrive going 45 mph


If the engine has a rough idle you know you have a miss-fire or other problem with one or more cylinders.
When you shift into overdrive the engine is working harder than in normal drive because of the lower torque/RPM.
So any slight miss under normal conditions will be magnified in overdrive or with the ac on.
See if you can nail down the cause for the rough idle.

Hi, I have a 1999 Mercury Villager with the 3.3 Litre Nissan motor. Just recently my cousin replaced the timing belt, and distributor. When we got the van back it was having transmission problems. When you...


I would start by making sure the Trans Fluid level is correct. If the level is good, it sounds like your internal pressures are leaking down, and that is why it slips out of gear. Which means you have internal trans issue which would require the trans to be most likely removed and repaired.

Thanks Jay!

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission slips in overdrive


sounds like a possible shift solenoid. If it's due for a fluid change, do that and add a container of lucas trans conditioner. Likely you have a drain plug on the pan so if the fluid was recently serviced, just drain a quart out and replace with the additive, then top off.
If the condition does not change within a week, likely you will need better diagnosis from a reputable trans shop.

98 Grand Cherokee Transmission problem: At hwy speed transmission surges or shifts down RPM'S jump 200 to 300 RPM. Only does it when Transmission is fully warmed up.


check oil level first, than check the electrical connector on the tranny. This sound like the transmission shifts from overdrive to drive. Check the wiring from the transmission to ECU and other items. If than happen again, check the shift cable, kick down cable. If that doesn't help, let the tranny be checked at a servicestation.

Odd shifting 99 jeep grand cherokee


A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.

Jeep erradic in shifting


Check the adjustment on the brake switch. If the brake switch is not seated properly it will engage when hitting bumps and tell the tranny to come out of overdrive.

Slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear


Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.

1995 jeep laredo overdrive is not shifting


Your overdrive should kick in at about 45mph, pretty much at or about 2000rpm. To see if it engaged, lightly touch the brake pedal and it will disengage.It should also disengage when you mash the pedal down to go into passing gear, and re-engage when conditions "normalize" again. You can tell that it has engaged because the tach will drop a few hundred rpms. If it's not doing this, a simple trans oil change (with filter) may correct the problem. OD is activated by a shift solenoid on the valve body that may be a bit gummed up.
95's show a shift control module on some diagrams I've seen, but not on others. I read this as a possible "half-year change" So you may or not have one. If you do, I'd check that as well!
