Quick check is to accellerate from a stop with steady even pressure on the gas. Watch the tach. It should have a good shift at approximately 2000 rpm and the tach should not jump higher during the actual shift (called flairing) This should be the same for each shift. Converter lockup (4th gear shift) should cause tach to drop about 500rpm and should happen at about 45mph. Then repeat the same process using a more agressive acceleration.
Shift points in rpms may be a bit higher but each shift should not flair. To check lockup, while driving at about 50mph, lightly touch brake pedal and you should feel ti disengage for a moment. Since you have an opportunity to return it, It would not be a bad idea to get a hands on evaluation from another shop you trust...I can't see it from here and a live person is better equipped to give an informed opinion.

Hey I have a 2008 jeep patriot can push gas pedal to the floor & jeep barely goes 5 miles an hour. Is this the transmission


only if the engine rpm increase with pedal position
Then only if it is a manual transmission in which case the clutch is slipping and that is a clutch master cylinder /cable problem
then only if it is an automatic with no oil in the transmission
only then if it is a CV transmission where the incorrect oil has been used in the CV transmission and if that is the case then it will be a transmission only

2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport extreme shudder at 40 mph- if I press the gas-pedal and get the RPMs to rev, the shudder ceases, only to return once I am back down around 38 mph-41mph.


which engine the 3.6? v6?
that shudder is called MISFIRE.
get a tune up yet, even $1.49 spark plugs?
no its not the trans,
if it dont slip, its not trans, (see RPM races? that is slip or too low gear)
if it shifting to the right gears, its not the trans can you count them?
is the CEL lamp glowing or flashing driving, is yes, that means
scan me now. in fact scanning while it shudders, is like (magic)
why start guessing, do a tuneup,
then scan it.
if its is misfire the PCM will tell you what cylinder misfires.

are your spark plugs 6 years old, if yes, why?
going for 200k miles on them.?

Transmission will stay in 2nd gear


Hi!!

When was the last time you service the tranny?

Fluid should be topped to level, pinkish in color and no burnt smell.

This happened two months ago; my cousin's Intrigue was slipping on 2nd n 3rd when it reached 2000 rpms. and some times when trying to take off suddenly, Have to released the gas a little and you could feel it engaging again.

Solution: Changed Transmission fluid and filter and added one bottle of RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip and Leak Repair I got at AutoZone ($10), It stopped the slipping after driving the car a couple of miles, you can actually feel more traccion in all gears and my cousin says is even giving more miles X gallon. He drives the car about 80 miles a day and is been over two months since. It may sound like a commercial ad but that stuff works great!!!

Rate this answer and keep me posted!! Good Luck!!

My 2000 Toyota 4runner V6 125k miles automatic transmission started slipping on cold starts especially in the morning. After starting up, putting in drive and pressing the gas pedal first gear doesn't...


Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

2000 Jeep Cherokee suddenly looses traction


Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Check the transmission fluid level and top off as needed. If the problem is not severe, an additive such as Lucas transmission additive may help.

Acceleration - cannot get above 40 miles per hr.


If the engine revs up while in drive and running at 40mph, your transmission is probably slipping. Try checking your transmission fluid level. If it is OK, I would get it by a garage to have them look at it to cofirm.
