Sounds like the kick down cable is stretched or out o adjustment. it operates a valve on the driver side of the tranny. when the cable brakes or streches it wont open the valve far enough to allow tranny fluid to pass. i would inspeck the cable at the intake to make sure it was properly conected and down at the tranny. replacement would also correct your down shifting issue.

SOURCE: manual shift mode and exhaust leak

You most likely have a broken wire in the steering column that goes to the manual shift mode switch. And as far as the exhaust leak goes, you need a new manifold. They crack and leak. Common problem.

SOURCE: GrandAm Tranmission shifts hard

I had the same problem in my 2002 grand am GT. After taking it to a transmission shop and them telling me that I had all this stuff wrong with it that was going to cost me about 2700$ I looked elsewhere. I had an Intake Temperature Sensor that had went bad. It was registering on the check engine light after the fact. I changed it and then found out there was a loose wire in the connector. I fixed that and havent had a problem with it since

2002 auto saturn sl1 revs a little high, and shifts a little hard when going between gears?


I just went through the same thing and checked the air idle control valve, and the throttle position sensor. . took it off and cleaned it. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it. Listened for vacuum leaks. Then after the same problem persisted, I sprayed brake cleaner directly on the intake manifold gasket between cylinders 1 and 2 and just like that, the RPM"S went down. I need a new intake manifold gasket.

After car is warm it rev's high like it is not shifting in to next gear is that a transmission issue


Could be a vaccum leak or Intake manifold leak. If you spray brake clean around the intake manifold and the idle returns to normal you have found the leak. Do not use water as this could hydrolock the engine causing further damage.

1995 Dodge ram 1500 V-8 5.9 litre 4x4 short bed is feels like it is bumping when the truck shifts into cruising gear and RPMs drop truck smmoths out when you speed up bumping goes away if you shift...


Perform compression check between cylenders #1 and #3. These are right next to each other.
You might get away with a head gasket replacement, if the compression between these cylenders is the same, indicating a blown head gasket between cyl.#1 and #3 not valves which will give different readins between these cylenders.

I installed new intake monifold gaskets because the bottom one was sucking air in and my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine would run at 2300 RPM'S. After changing the gaskets the car is hard to start...


Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident
