I'm not really an expert however mine did that right after I rebuilt it and I just adjusted the bands a little and replaced the speed sensor and it's fine now.

If it was working fine up to the time you had it rebuilt and you had it rebuilt then I would make them fix the problem. Sounds like it could be a shift linkage problem or shift solenoid inside of the transmission.

1995 blazer 4l60e trans just rebuilt. Hard 1-2


Sounds like full pressure apply from pcm. Must check for full 12v at trans connector. Also check all ground twice. That is a hard trans to install and things tend to get left loose.

Tranny wont shift to 3 or 4 gear


when is the last time you had the fluid changed? the fluid and filter is supposed to be changed in automatic transmissions every 12,000 - 14,000 miles. it may be something simple but if you don't have an error message or OBDII code to go along with your problems then more than likely its either the filter and fluid or it may also be about time to have the transmission rebuilt. Before the transmission is too far gone you'll see a check engine light that will come on with a code for not shifting properly or slipping. once you see that i would take it to a reputable shop to have it rebuilt before it gives you major trouble or leaves you sitting.

1500 automatic bought from guy says trans was rebuilt shifts ok but when you tromp it sometimes its kicks down goes like hell then tranny slips I backoff and it is fine


I would recommend that you drop the pan and change the fluid and filter, and in place of a quart of transmission fluid, I would run some Lucas transmission oil/fluid that is specifically designed to free up a sticky valve body, and eliminate slipping.

Tranny shudder low speed 35-45 mph


The shifting sequence releases one clutch as it engages the other, so it may be one or the other out of timing, so there is a partial engagement or disengagement. Does the tranny oil, on the dipstick smell burned, or feel significantly different than fresh fluid? How many miles on the fluid? What model 95 Dodge? Has the tranny been rebuilt some time in the near past? (I ask that because, years ago I had a BMW tranny rebuilt by a very good shop ans noted on the work order that it had to be built and filled only with type F fluid. When I picked up and road tested the car, the tranny made an groaning noise on the up-shift. I took the dar back to the shop and asked what fluid it was filled with. They said Dexron II. I pointed out the work order and my telling them to only use type F, . They changed the fluid and refilled with type F, which was a waste because the clutch plates were contaminated with Dexron, so they decided to rebuild the trans mission,l They did, and filled it with type F and it was just as bad, so they claimed there was probably a problem in the valve body. I asked them what fluid they soaked the new plates in before assembly, It was Dexron, so they rebuilt it again using tyoe F for the pre soak of plates and bands, The tranny worked perfectly.
For a Chrysler product, I would only use Mopar brand fluid, even if the manual said there was an acceptable substitute. This is also true for the brake fluid and coolant, as the cost of a mistake can be huge. Remember, whoever changes the fluid is married to any problems that show up. I owned a six bay repair shop with a full machine shop for ten years before retiring. We did not do transmissions, it was legally safer to have them done by a reputable transmission shop or the dealer, bringing them the vehicle.

93 chevy 1500 4wd trans. shift problems.


See if the tranny has an exterior modulator valve. If so remove the vacuum line and see if there is tranny fluid in the line. It will be located on the pasenger side rear of the tranny. What's happening is the engine is sucking tranny fluid through the vacuum line directly into the intake and it doesn't burn well.

When it shifts to third does it just feel like neutral? If yes it will need rebuilt again, you hurt the 3/4 clutch.
