93 fleetwood transmission shifts late and jerks while shifting

Considering buying a 93 fleetwood. It's beautiful but the transmission shifts late and jerks some when shifting into the next gear.
Does anyone have any insight into this? Is this a car I should be considering to buy?

Thanks so much for your time.

How do I fix transmission shift problems in 95 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham.


Fixing a modern (near modern) auto trans is not really a DIY job. I'd take your car to a transmission specialist.

Trans. modulator on a 93 g20 van ?


Depends on the type of transmission in the van. Most late model transmissions use electronic shift solenoids to control shift points. If the transmission in this van has a modulator valve, it is located on the passenger side of the van near the middle of the transmission with a vacuum hose attached to it.

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

Rav4 Automatic Transmission Jerks into Second


check the level of the transmission fluid while the engine is running.
also has the transmission been "flushed"? a lot of shops just use
dextron atf with the additives supplied by the supplier of the flushing machine.
this can cause problems in toyotas.
replacing the fluid with the correct (T IV) transmission fluid
may help.
but if you are having this much trouble it may be too late.

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

My 2000 daewoo nebria jerks to the left when the automatic transmission changes into 3rd gear. it's kinka spooky. where do i need to start looking for the solution? Don Frasier come711@yahoo.com


I would start with your trans, 3rd gear is much higher the 1 and 2 and if it only jerks in 3 the problem is a tranny issue, possibly late shifting or bad shift solenoid for 3rd gear. Your ecu could also be casueing the late shifts.....hows your fluid level/age

My 93 accord shifts erratically. it drops rpm and seems like the transmission is slipping


First off, did you happen to change the fluid lately and use anything but Honda ATF-Z1. If you did that is your problem. You must use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 or shifting problems will result. Even if you did not use a non Honda fluid, I suggest you have the fluid changed and the transmission flushed. You may end up needing a transmission rebuild but it is worth trying a fluid/filter change first.

93 ford probe jerks when going into 2nd


Don't know if this will be of any help, but these cars have the same auto trans as the Mada 626s of the same age and they are a problematic transmission. They tend to blow up. Gerking could just mean it needs a service. ie: low fluid levels or 'worn out' fluid. It could also be an early sign of bigger problems.
We ended up selling our mazda because of the transmission. around $1800 to replace with reco but many people reporting reco trans failing within 2 yrs anyway.

Toyota Camry Automatic Transmission Jerking Shift


Not likely to be the clutch pack as you dont mention slipping wich is the normal sign of overheated or worn clutch bands.Not sure with your vehicle but 2 methods that control the shift severity are engine vacuum or pump pressure inside the auto. so check balls are a possibility. They are spring loaded to open at a set pressure,or close.Could you check to see if its a vacuum controled and if so its a lot easier to fix as the vacuum control should be outside the trans.
