Could be many things from blocked filter to bad tps (throttle position sensor). The tps is small, cheap and easily replaceable. After checking basics like fluid (level- hot, after driving- and color -pink to red, should not be dark/light brown), etc. you may want to replace the tps.

Tranny wont shift gears what could cause that


There are a variety of things that can cause a transmission not to shift. Let's start with the cheapest and work our way up. Vacuum leaks can sometimes cause a delayed shift or a no shift. Check all vacuum lines that go to the trans. Not enough trans fluid or very dirty trans filter can cause a no shift. Shift solenoids which are located inside the trans and last, the trans has finally burned through the clutches and will have to be completely rebuilt. Should be one of these and if you're lucky, it'll be one of the first two.

Transmission wont shift low 2 second , alredy change trans


I came across this problem before in my case it turned out to be the TPS sensor. I also had a problem like this and it was the Park Natural switch. The ECM could only see park so it would not let the trans shift. These things are easy to check with a scan tool. Good Luck :-)

My 1995 buick lesabre electronic transmission- it shifts at the wrong speeds and sometimes will not shift into high gear on the highway, but sometimes it will work. and sometimes it loses gear on th


First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

You need to have the trans ECU reset back into its adaptive learning mode. The new trans is shifting harder because the trans ECU still thinks the old one is in the car. The ECU learns your driving habits and compensates clutch wear to provide a smooth consistent shift. Your old trans had a lot of clutch wear so to keep the shift quality it allowed more pressure to the clutch packs. So you now have a trans with less wear on it and the shifts are hard. This is something that removing battery power wont reset. It has to be done with a diagnostic tester. Some trans controllers will begin to compensate on their own over a period of time but I don't yours is one of them.

When u press the gas pedal to hard the transmission shifts really hard


When the peddle is pressed really hard the trans is supposed to increase the shift firmness. The problem may be that the engine has some power problem which makes the trans look like the problem. If the engine is not operating correctly power wise hard shifting will occur.
If the car has a trans shift cable and it is adjusted incorrectly it will also shift hard. If the trans has vacuum modulator that is out of adjustment or going bad it will also shift hard. Many trans shops will test drive it for free so let the trans shop advise you for free and save some time.

1997 ford taurus 3.0 ltr trans wont shift into overdrive. first thrugh third gears shift fine but it doesnt try to shift into overdrive at all. the trans shows no signs of slipping and the fluid looks...


Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

Harsh shifts after transmission rebuild


they need to adjust the shifting cable, take it back to who built the trans and tell them to adjust the shifting cable, if its not adjusted right, it will burn up the trans again,be sure to get that fixed quickly, also, some trans builders remove the wave plates in trans ,that will cause a hard shift , most likey ,the cable, hope this helps you, thanks robert b.
