I have a 1996 pontiac bonneville 3800 and when I put it in drive to take off It will rev to 3000 rpm before taking off. It doesn't shift hard through any gears and seems to run fine after 20 mph.


Usually dirty transmission fluid/filter (no noises) You can try adding a full bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer fluid...you don't need to drain anything...(could also just be low tranny fluid) Follow the instructions, warm tranny, motor running...add full bottle...manually shift through gears...The cost is about $11. even at Walmart...Hope this helps.

its probably the kickdown cable look under the hood its the cable that runs next to the throttle cable see if there's alot of slack or if its too tight and not letting it release all the way.

Shifting problem


sounds like it may be either a converter problem or u got some bad clutches in third in the case you need to go to a tranny shop.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.
