Sounds like the front pump is going bad or the filter or cooler is clogged.

I suggest a transmission shop such as AAMCO to look at it as it takes special equiptment to run the needed tests for proper diagnosis.

Sorry no simple fix for that.

I don't know the last time you had the trans. serviced but if your pulling alot of weight especialy in hot weather you should have it done alot more than normal, I would try that first, if that don't help, your looking at a rebuild or replacement, and if it does not have one an external oil cooler is a good idea too.

I never trust rebuilt trannies unless i rebuild them myslef....Beefing up valve bodies sometime leads to premature wear and tear...the kit could be malfuctioning aswell. Chefck fluids and replace the filter in it, if that doesnt fix it, then take it back to the tech, and demand free service :)

SOURCE: tranny slips & wont shift past 2nd gear

tranny slips can also mean that you may need to change the tranny filter. But just like cooking oil at first it is thick then you add heat and it gets thinner, same for tranny oil which could also mean that your tranny needs gear and plate work. The easiest way to find out is to insert the oil dip stick, clean it with a paper towel and check to see if you can see metal shivers or if the color of the tranny oil is not red but silverish, these are usually indictative of a tranny that needs an overhaul. hope this helps.

Good Luck =)

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

P0756 code Honda accord 2005


P0756all p07 codes are tranny.


  • Shift Solenoid 'B' Stuck Off (read the FSM page on 756 it tells you how to do the checks )

  • if 756 is cleared. (reset it using the scan tool, drive 20 miles, still set?)?

    if you get them clear, all DTCs
    do the tranny stall test. stated n the FSM.
    stall the torque converter. in 1st gear, parked.
    if rpm is too low the engine has power issues
    if Rpm is way too high (slip?) bad tranny. (or wires to it)

    My 2001 hyundai sante fe gl accelerates slow and seems not to shift out of gear i tried to do the manual shifting but it doesnt seem to help


    You need to replace tranny, is your check engine light on? if so get codes read for free at Auto Zone parts store,,,Lots of miles on vehecle? Trans fluid should be changed at 40 thousand miles. Most folk dont do this and thats why trannys go out,,,and treating the trans bad like getting stuck in snow and driveing rough all cause bad trannys

    99 blazer - driving from Colo to Ia about 4 hours from home when rpms start revving really high - slowed down from 70 to 50 rpms still steady at atleast 3 - 4. Pull over shut off and turn back on then it's...


    Unfortunately yes, the torque converter has gone bad, and it is slipping. Increased rpm is due to the lack of friction in the turbine / torque converter, the equivalent of a burned out clutch in a manual transmission. Burnt smell is due to overworked, overheated transmission fluid. Turning off the engine, and letting the fluid cool down, will improve the situation for a few miles, until temp goes up again.

    Very well could be taht the Computer is not recieving the Shift codes Correctly. Just for an Easy Solution, Remove the ECM Fuse from the Fuse panel for 2 or 3 Minutes to Reset the Computer and let me know what you get.
