SOURCE: transmission is not shifting properly on my 2000

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.

SOURCE: i have 2006 scion xb and when driving the rpm

3500 is about normal for an xb at 65 mph. My previous ride was a pickup and rolled at about 2000-2500 on the highway. But the XB's engine is way more "tightly wound". Your rpm gage should run at about half of of your 70 mph will be about 35 (3500) rpm, 80 mph will be about 40 (4000) rpm. Freaked me out when I first got the thing, but after researching it Ive found out that with a stock engine it actually runs more efficient at the higher RPM's. The 06 boxes won't redline until 6000 rpm, so unless you are driving 120 on a frequent basis you're good. You can probably have it modified to run lower, but you will lose the awesome gas mileage and overall it is not going to improve the way it runs, and would have no benefit............

SOURCE: Transmission was running great one day then the

I hate to hear that but the good thing is this may not be as bad as you think. The governor, modulator, and/or throttle cable controls the shift points on non-computer (older) controlled transmissions. On computer controlled transmissions this shifting problem could be caused by a faulty sensor or a bad connection or defective solenoid pack. These types of problems can be resolved without the expense of a transmission removal. Take it to a reputable dealer for diagnosis. I always recommend a second opinion for any recommendation of needing a total rebuild. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 93 nissan d21 4 cyl automatic trans wont shift

well there are a few reasons that could cause this problem some of which are easy fix others are a major fix.
1)The throtle valve cable could be out of adjustment, for this to be corrected it is best to be taken to a transmission shop, or you could buy a Chilton or Haynes repair manual to see how to adjust it yourself.

2)The O.D. solenoid (which depending on the transmission in the truck) is either inside or on the outside of transmission, could have a bad wire going down to it, or have a bad connection to it, or it may not any power getting to it /// First Check All Fueses on vehicle then locate where solenoid is the check wires for power. The solenoid could also be plugged or bad depending on condition of trans and the ATF.

3)In side the transmission the is whats called a Over Drive Clutch Pack and the cluthes could be worn out or completely gone this happens quite often with older vehicles. If this happens to be the problem then the only possible fix would be what is called a OVER HAUL in which the transmission is removed from the vehicle, disassembled, all clutches and damaged parts in side are replaced, then transmission is or should be cleaned and then reassembled and then the transmission is reinstalled back into the vehicle.

So depending on where you live there might be a transmission shop that might diagnose the exact problem of your 93 nissan and give you a quote on fixing it. Some shops do this for free other do not. My shop does this for free. So I hope this helps you with your truck.

2003 protege runs with high idel in each gear. I know this is done on perpose to make it feel sporty. Running at 3.5 rpms in 5th at 65 to 70 mph burns gas. Can I lower the rpms to save gas? Btw I don't...

No. You are set by the gear ratio in the transmission and the final drive. The only way to change this would be to change the final drive ratio in the transmission, and there likely are no aftermarket solutions available to you.

I don't think my 95 Grand Cherokee is shifting into overdrive all the time. Can you tell me what the RPMs should be for it running 65 MPH?

Depending on differential gearing, most run at about 21 hundred rpms @65. Overdrive usually shifts in at around 45mph. To see if it is engaged, while doing about 50, lightly tap the brake. That should momentarily disengage the od and the rpm's should increase for a moment. @45, you should notice the rpm drop when it engages initially.
