Get filter changed is always your first fix with shifting problems in a automatic transmission . They wont tell ya that but it usually is the problem or a shifting solenoid that can be replaced at same time..

this may be due to a poor connection at the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, pull the connector off the sensor and clean it with contact cleaner, if the problem persists replace the speed sensor. there are 2 diff ones here is a picture of the most common one for an auto trans.3deea43.jpg

SOURCE: Tranmission will not shift into next gear from

Try changing the transmission fluid and transmission fluid filter. It is a fairly easy but kind of messy job. Just buy the new fluid and filter, Grab your metric socket set and go at it. NEVER WORK UNDERNEATH A HOT VEHICLE. You have to pull the transmission pan to do this job. When you break the gasket seal several quarts (liters) of transmission fluid will cascade down on you. Be ready for it. Don't forget that when it stops draining there is still a lot of fluid left in the pan. When you finish cleaning up the fluid clean the gunk out of the pan. Install the new filter and reinstall the pan with a new gasket. Do not over torque the pan or filter bolts. If you strip them out or break them off you will need professional help to repair it. Refill the transmission with fluid. It should take six or seven liters.

Transmission


Did it do it under hard acceleration? or just a normal take off. I have heard of engine mounts or tranny mount bushings getting old (not mileage old but just aging) causing a thump or clunking sound in between shifting. What happens is the tranny actually hits the undercarriage of the vehicle during high torque situations such as shifting gears. I have also seen the mount retaining nut back off of the mounts and the only thing holding everything in place is gravity. Another possibility is drive shaft u-joint problems, but if it were it would probably be making the noise more often. I dont think there is actually anything wrong with the transmission itself as usually when they go bad they dont magically get better. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Transmission not shifting correctly


It sounds like you have a shift linkage problem. Did this start after going off road? If so, check for damage. You MIGHT be able to do some repairs yourself but would be better off going to a transmission shop. If the problem didn't start after off-roading or other damage, there are several possible issues that could be causing the problem: 1) A broken band; 2) a bad vacuum modulator; 3) leaking vacuum lines; 4) blockage or broken springs in the valve body. In any case, you are better off going to a reputable transmission shop.
