Sounds like you are long overdue for a fluid flush and change, possibly to the point where it needs a complete rebuild.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy 1500 P/U 4x4 small V8. Transmission shifting issue.

you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps

It wont shift into overdrive the transmission has pressure I changed to fluids when I go to pass it wont shift into overdrive


strange as it may sound, transmissions do not shift into overdrive to pass
they down shift a ratio to get extra torque from the motor and will stay down shifted until the vacuum actuator shifts it back and only then when the VSS reports to the TCM that a ratio change up is needed will the overdrive click in
If you cannot get OD under any circumstances run the fault codes and check for a problem overdrive servo/ solenoid , TCM unit

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY MY CHRYSLER 300 DOES NOT WANT TO SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE WHEN ITS COLD OUTSIDE SHIFTS FINE AFTER THE CAR IS COMPLETELY WARM AND DOES SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE WHEN IT IS COLD AFTER MY RPMS HIT...


This is a normal condition, the nag transmission control module needs to see a certain temperature of the fluid before shifting into overdrive this is due to fluid viscosity, if the fluid is too thick
due to cold temps the pump cannot supply enough pressure to fully engage
the overdrive clutch, if it did you would have slippage in overdrive

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

05 Sierra 4x4 wont shift into OD until it has warmed up for a while, this only happens when there are sub freezing temps, is this a problem, and if so what should i do??


This is normal on newer vehicles. The transmission temperature is monitored and overdrive is held off until the transmission is up to temp. Nothing unusual or wrong with this. My Tundra does the same thing. The trans temp gauge gets to about the 1/4 mark before the overdrive kicks in.

You have a very bad internal problem for when the fluid is in a colder climate it will run smoother than a warm climate it sounds like a valve body shifting problem to me

Hi my mr2 1986 when its hot the transmission changes to 4th geer


I think its set up that way not to shift into the higher gears until it reaches a certain tempature. I know my chevy picup has a temp. sender unit that won't let it shift to overdrive until it reaches a certain temp.

Shifting problems


The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
