This sounds to me like it may be a hose for some type of vacuum modulator that may be located within the transmission case. Look around the transmission on the underside of the car for any signs of any vacuum lines that may not be attached. It may also attach somewhere along the top of the transmission. Hope this helps.

My 92 cadillac deville shift at 30mph and 6th do. You think it's the transmission .speed sensor

Check the vacuum line or hoses that run from the transmission to the engine. It may have come loose or you have a vacuum leak. If your vacuum is fine, you should change the modulator on the side of the transmission. That's what determines when your transmission shifts. Note..sometimes the diaphragm inside the modulator will burst and allow fluid to enter the vacuum line, so look forfluid in the line also.

My check transaxle light came on and is flashing. and the car is idling high

Check the vacuum line that runs from the intake manifold down to the vacuum modulator on the transmission. I'm betting it has come loose or the hose is broken.

2002 mercury cougar vacuum line off the top of transmission

The hose connects to the top of the transmission, underneath the car's battery (you'll have to remove the battery to see the connection site). It's important that this hose, once reconnected, does not does not get crimped. If the hose is not free to "breathe" pressure buildup in the transmission can cause fluid to pour out of the fill point (where the dip-stick goes).

Transmission line replacement

Just remove the hose,measure the inside diameter and buy the correct size and type hose, Get an extra foot to work with. Now --Trans Hose is not fuel hose. Most Auto Parts Stores don't carry the correct hose. Go to a trans shop or trans supply house. Also ,you can use Power Steering Hose-same stuff. If the hose is cripped to the long lines you mentioned,just remove them ,so you can work on them ,while cutting off the furrel. Just don't cut into the aluminum line. The entire assy most likey is not avail

Transmission wont shift out of second gear would a vacume hose being loose cause this and where is hose located

Sorry, but I don't know Dodge enough to be sure if the transmission has a vacuum modulator anymore or not. But if it does, then it would be about fuel line sized vacuum hose coming off the manifold or throttle body, and going down to the transmission, to a circular diaphram, which screws into the transmission, just above the pan. The way it works is that when you accelerate hard, the transmission is supposed to get less vacuum, and therefore keep you in a lower gear, for more power. So if the hose broke or fell off, it would think you were flooring it, and keep you in lower gears. But the idle then should also be varying as well. You can look for leaking hoses by pinching them off one at a time, because that should not change the engine performance unless the hose is leaking. It the leak is at the source, pinching hoses won't help, but there should be whistling. You can listen for that by using a small lenght of tubing to listen through, as you move it around the engine compartment.

Transmission wont shift

check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.

My 1994 truck shift fine from 1 to second but then it doesn't shift to any other gear.

Could be as simple as a vacuum line leading to the transmission vacuum modulator is off or the modulator itself is bad, check to see if you have the hoses all connected first, because if there is no vacuum the transmission thinks you are under a heavy load and your foot is to the floor, this means the engine is creating little or no vacuum. So the tranny will stay in a low gear
