Automatic transmission not shifting gears

Mine an Optima 2002 TX shifting down abruptly (kick off). After checking codes, we found 0720(TX output sensor). Ordered the Kit (input & output sensors) replaced only the output sensor (under brake booster) and problem fixed. Now car running fine. Wanted to share my experience. Tks.

2002 dodge neon wont shift outta first and speedometer wont work ,already replaced input and output sensors


Maybe the speedometer connection at the transmission might be interfering with the shift lever at the transmission. Not sure if this would apply to the 2002 Neon but on some older model cars I believe it could happen. Just a thought.

Having problems with my Automatic transmission Kickdown, when i press the accelerator pedal all the way down, the gears will not shift, and the gears will not kick down going uphill, i have to manuall


Most cars with automatic transmissions have a kick down switch that is sometimes mounted on the transmission but activated by the throttle linkage. A good mechanic should be able to correct this quite easily.

2002 Kia Optima runs great, transmission has started acting irradcally. it will shift and pull in gear for a short time after starting, but after a few minutes it fails to move the car. I've changed...


Keep driving it like that & it won't work at all

When ever you even think you have a transmission
issue,you immediately stop using the vehicle or you
end up rebuilding the trans,your call,your money & lots of it

Ask yourself ---Why would changing the fluid do anything?

Old oil out / New oil in ?

You change trans fluid because it breaks down from the heat
That is it's job,to remove heat or your trans fails

Trans & Power Steering get changed every 3 years & not
over 30,000 miles ever on ALL Vehicles

Abrupt gear change of automatic transmission


The shift solenoid in the transmission has a fault with the power train computer or visa versa. A scan of the computer codes will find your fault. Auto Zone will perform a scan free of charge just for asking

Abrupt shifts


these cars are prone to motor/transmission mount failure. This can lead to erratic shifting. No guarantees but I have seen this a few times.

I have a 2002 kia sedona and occacionly the car jumps while i am driving and then runs very rough...I have learned that when i shut the car off and turn it back on it seems to run normal again


Sounds like either an input or an output shaft speed sensor. In a nut shell, the transmission's shifting is controlled electronically; at a stop or very slow speed, the transmission is automatically in first gear...when these sensors 'sense' that the vehicle is travelling at a certain speed, it tells the transmission to shift into second. At the next specified speed, it shifts into third; etc. etc. What it sounds like is that one of these sensors is going bad, telling the transmission to downshift, but the other sensor is fighting that command and causing the vehicle to 'act' like it's running rough, when in reality it's probably just the transmission rapidly jumping between gears. These sensors aren't particularly cheap, but are pretty easy to replace. Start by finding a shop that will plug in a code reader for you (or do it yourself if you have one). You're looking for a code in the range of 0715 to 0723. If it reads 0715 to 0718, that's the input side. 0720 to 0723 is the output side. Good luck.

Transmission shifts to second gear and stays there


Could Be that your TCM is losing power. I would check to see if the TCM is firmly attached to the passenger side fender wall. If not it could be losing the ground.
