My 2002 gmc envoy goes through all the gears except slips in third


Its the overdrive sensor 3rd gear you will slip with 4speed band trans
This overdrive gear setting if your sensor is not kicking in then you are due for trans maintenance as 3rd gear is shredding slowly away learned this from dirt track quarter mile super stock racing pray that your gear is intact as a trans shop with micro snake cam can only determine the length of time you have on your gears and trans inspections are free threw amco certified shops

Rpm are way high. at 60 miles an hour the overdrive kicks in, rpm shoot up to 4000


Either the torque converter isn't staying locked-up
or your in third gear,not od, as you suggest.

In OD, which is fourth gear, rpm goes down, not up

So you know you have to go to a trans shop

Drive it like that one more day & you will ruin it,
as I suspect may have happened already

I have a 1999 Tiburon. Trans starts off in 2nd gear and goes to 3rd but will not go into overdrive.When starting cold though, it will shift 1,2&3. Also overdrive(4th gear) light will not come on.


I would check into the Trans oil temp sensor,they are known to keep the trans from shifting into 4th gear if they have a open or a shorted circuit...This may also be the culprit for the other issues you are experiencing when the trans is at diff temps and doing diff things....The other thing that is known for going bad in that Transaxle is the Sunshell...The splines on the inside of the sunshell strip out and than you will lose pretty much all forward gears,Except for 1st gear most likely and you will also lose Reverse if the Sunshell goes bad...But this will not act any different if the temperature is cold or hot

90 eagle talon esi rumbles driving down the road?


Sounds like you have a problem in the Overdrive sensor or the lockup in the converter. You should see if a scanner will identify this problem. Ask at the autoparts store about "What they show for an Overdrive switch or Servo?". Autozone, Advance, and Oreillys do free scans.

Check your transmission fluid as the trans works hard in top gear with pressure directly driving the tallest gear in the trans. Low fluid levels could be causing the converter to kick out of Lockup.

All gears are working, but once I reach 30 miles per hour the RPM's race without further acceleration


is this a three speed trans? or 4spd w/overdrive? either way i believe you have a pressure problem whether a torque converter or a trans pump. I was wondering how you know all gears worked if it will only do 30 mph as the 4th or overdrive usually wont engage at that speed. but here say,

Overdrive Problem.


The throttle sensor on higher mileage vehicles has been know to cause this type concern. The voltage that the engine and trans controller sees starts to get erratic from the sensor and will kick out of OD.

Shifting


Try putting the trans in 3rd gear when going up hills.It's trying to get into overdrive & doesn't have enough power to maintain overdrive so it is kicking in & out of gear trying to keep up with the engine.your owners manual should tell you about being in overdrive while going up hils.Good luck,
