2005 Ford Freestar has trouble shifting into 2nd gear when fully warmed up. Shifts nice for 15 miles or so depending on ambient temperature and traffic.

Sounds like your second geer piston seal is worn out and losing pressure,recommended good used or rebuild transmission.

1994 mitshubishi mirage when its cold doesnt want to shift autmatic transmisson when it heats up it shifts normal?

it sounds like your transmisssion oil may be low. i would check this first ond would also make sure its thin enough, if the oil is old and thick i will struggle to change gear until its warmed up and thinned down. i would also check if the oil cooler is part of the coolant radiator. it has been known for coolant to leak in to the gearbox through the cooler

let me know if this helps

I have a 2003 mazda proge and it will shift only

The transmission is detecting a problem and is now in "limp in" mode. It allows the car to be driven about 40 mph so it can be brought to a repair facility.

Transmission troble

If this is automatic check you transmission fluid level. If that is good you will need to take it to a transmission shop and have it repaired. If it is standard you need to have the transmission serviced.

Hi my mr2 1986 when its hot the transmission changes to 4th geer

I think its set up that way not to shift into the higher gears until it reaches a certain tempature. I know my chevy picup has a temp. sender unit that won't let it shift to overdrive until it reaches a certain temp.
