It sounds to me that the clutch material in the transmission might be breaking down. Before too long I would have the transmission rebuilt or replaced. If you wait too much longer the transmission will start to slip and pretty soon you will have NO gears but first and reverse.

My autostick chysler 300M will not manually downshift


That may be a safety feature, Ron - it SHOULD refuse to downshift if downshifting would cause excessively high engine RPMs.

Valve body in the bottom of the transmission has valves that ware out and the oil is thick when it is cold and when the oil gets hot it gets around the ***** out valves thus shifting back in to first could be the 2-1 downshift valve.

97 Honda Odyssey Auto transmission downshifts


Try checking your timing to solve the ping problem, your timing might be too far advanced. For the downshifting problem, I have this same issue on my odyssey, On the top of your efi manifold you will see 2 wires that control your throttle, One of them extends to the transmission and basically lets it know when you are pressing firmly on your gas pedal, telling it to downshift. I would adjust it so the cable has some more slack in it, therefore requiring a harder press on the pedal before downshift, and hopefully a sooner upshift. You can also slightly adjust idling problems if the van is running high while in park or drive while sitting. As for the gas vapor purge code, I would first try replacing the egr valve, its only a couple bucks and takes no more than 5 minutes.

2003 Dodge neon is jerking while trying to shift.


Cheapest thing to try is a fluid flush and filter change. Unfortunately, if that does not work, then next bet is probably a rebuild.

1999 DODG 3500 AUTO TRANS SHIFTS TO 2ND WITH A LITTLE HELP


I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.

Transmission


If the transmission is the 3 speed auto,just Dexron 2 or 3.If it's the 4 speed overdrive trans,it should use Mopar fluid(buy at the dealer) that is highly friction modified,or use Dexron 2 or 3 and LubeGard highly friction modified fluid supplement.The worst that can happen if these fluids aren't used,is harsh shifting,sometimes upshift shudder,and downshift bumps.These symptoms really don't damage anything,but are extremely annoying.
