Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

High rpm The rpm's are running high. After the auto trany shifts 2 times, the 3rd time is about 45mph, however the tack doesn't drop but a little, by the time the vehicle hits 60mph the tack is at 3rpm, and doesn't drop. I have replaced the cam sensor, the TP sensor on trany and now I don't know what else to do. I have done some research and think it may be the TPS. I guess my question is do you have any sug. or ideas of what could be causing this?

The Idle Air Control sensor (IAC) would be a good place to start. Good Luck!

1977 chevy with a turbo 350 slipping out of gear


Check the TV (throttle valve) cable, if that's out of adjustment the trany will think you want passing gear. Try disconnecting the cable at the carburator, that should make it shift into high gear at about 25 MPH and stay in high until you slow down. If it fails to stay in high gear then you have major problem. Are there a lot of miles on it? Are you sure you have enough fluid in it? Does the fluid smell burned. It might be just worn out. Good luck!

Ive got a hyundai coupe 2.0se auto and its doing 4000rpms in 55-60mph does this sound like is not hitting all the gears in the auto box ?


Yes it does. My 2.0 runs about 2300-2500 at 55. (this is a rough idea of rpm level dont shoot me if its off a little, since i try to pay more attention to the road than the gauges:) ) Can you feel the car when it shifts? Count the shifts if u can if not, Find somewhere safe to mess around and try to watch the tach and drive and watch for drops in rpms and count how many times it drops( accelerate a little harder than normal driving, but not so hard you run it all the way up to 6500 before it shifts.)
From first to 2nd would be one **** or rpm drop
2nd to 3rd would be two.
3rd to 4th would be three.

Sometimes a little Berkebile 2+2 gum cutter sprayed down the tranny fill tube will loosen up a sticking valve (about 15-20 seconds worth of spraying) then drive it at least 30 miles or 50 km's.

I just had auto transmission changed in 94 Toyota corolla 4 cyl, before it shifted to 2nd around 20mph and high gear around 50mph, this transmission shifts to 2nd at 25mph (which I think is a little high...


Did a shop do the trani ?
If so - bring it back for adjusting..
Sounds like the moulator linkage needs adjusting.. If you dont know what or where that is - I would suggest bringing it to a trianed pro..
If you do know what that is and where it is - try adjusting the adjustment on that linkage..

95 GMC 454 Auto-not shifting consistant


first things first, check your fluid level, and condition. If its abnormally bad with small fragments of black, you can assume that you burnt out a clutch and you'll need to get a reman or new transmission. If the level is too high or low, it will cause it not to shift properly.

Automatic transmission< while in drive wont shift


change your transmission filter: no or, very little movement and, no shifting indicates a clogged hydrolic circuit
do not continue to drive your car at that rpm until you fix this as engine damage can occur
