Check your TV cable. It connects to the throttle body and if it is out of adjustment or worse came too close to the exhaust and melted, it will not synch the trans.

SOURCE: won't shift into overdrive

these cars are a 4 speed auto
it you here the car change 4 times then it is going in to od
best way to try this is by following

  1. go to an open rood where you can do 100kph (60mhp)
  2. have your overdrive turned off (there should be a light on the dash board that comes on)
  3. then turn over drive on and see if the RPM drops
if it dose not work let me know and i will try my best to help you

SOURCE: 1999 Escort ZX2 idling rough & not shifting in to overdrive

This could be caused by several things. Bad MAF sensor, TPS could be defective. You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes. You can have this done for no charge at AutoZone.

SOURCE: ON MY FORD F150 IT WON1T GO INTO REVERSE. SHIFTS

Call a dealer about a new recall. There is another problem in the cruise control that is making it hard to put a vehicle into reverse. There are also problems with brake lights and dash indicators for the ABS all caused by the cruise control. This includes about 16 million various Ford products.

Car drives good but high rpm at 60 mph rpm is like 3000


Does your car have an overdrive or economy mode? 3000 is about right if you're going uphill at 60, your car is under heavy load or your not in overdrive. It could also be that your car hasn't shifted up to the next gear. On many automatics you can stomp on the gas pedal twice quickly, all the way to the floor, and that will make it up shift. Try that to see if that lowers the rpm's and gets it to shift up. If your car still wont up shift check the transmission fluid level with the car warmed up and running.

My 1992 bluebird school bus doesn't take overdrive


Hi, That sounds normal. You have to shift to a lower gear to go uphill.
When you also have lots of weight in the back. (students) shift to a lower gear. Good luck.

Shifted fine changed motors now won't shift to drive or overdrive


check that you have connected correctly the cables for the torque converter solenoid / servo unit as it may not be making good contact after the engine change . Also as the battery was disconnected for a time I would use a scanner to reset the CPU program as the program may be corrupted from the lost battery power.

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.

OK a couple of things to check.
  1. Check your Transmission fluid level is correct with the dipstick which you should find at the back of the engine by the firewall/back of the engine area. The dipstick in front is for your engine oil level.
  2. Its possible that you also have a shifting problem inside the transmission in what is call the clutch pack and modulator areas.
  3. Your electric sensors which operate the shifting in the mentioned above areas may be causing the problem.
  4. You could have a vacum leak to the shift modulator on your transmission.
As you can see it is a very technical area to try and find exactly whats going on but if your fluid level is low then filling it the the correct level on the dipstick should resolve this problem. Good Luck....
Let me know how or what you find.

Shifting


Try putting the trans in 3rd gear when going up hills.It's trying to get into overdrive & doesn't have enough power to maintain overdrive so it is kicking in & out of gear trying to keep up with the engine.your owners manual should tell you about being in overdrive while going up hils.Good luck,

2000 toyota echo, transmission won't shift to 4th

Loss of power uphills and shifting improperly.


It sounds very much like your clutch is slipping. If the engine revs continue to rise when in gear and the car does not increase it's speed accordingly then if it is a manual car then you need a new clutch.
