An old one ---think it needs a new front clutch and brake band ,but do check for a vacumn pipe from the inlet manifold to the gearbox long shot but it might have a vacumn controlled unit in the gearbox to tell it when to shift doubt it as this was only on cars in the 60s but you never know.

SOURCE: Have 2004 V-8 Touareg. Can

you can go through the ecm and reconfigure the trans control module,however there could be an underlying reason for you high shift points. it could be that you have a faulty engine speed sensor which sends the signal to the ecm to operate your transmission. my advice would be to check for any loose connections first. also your shift points are set to the power curve of your engine so if your having to throttle it to a higher degree it could be that the performance of your engine is not what it should be. if you can give me some more background on your vehicle i can evalueate it further

SOURCE: I have a 2002 pontiac grand am gt that is'nt shifting gears right

My daughter has a 2003 with the same problem. She took it to a highly regarded transmission shop. They told her it is not the transmisison but an engine performance problem. She took it for an oil change to check the filters etc and the fuel filter is bad. I will follow up if that fixes the problem.

SOURCE: '98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only

When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

The
shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.








There
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.




Also
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to
the specific problems of gear shift

2000 Ford Focus. Transmission won't upshift unless I let up on the gas pedal. It will shift if I'm accelerating easy, but under a heavier load it won't. - Catalytic Converter isn't blocked...


it sound like it could be a vacuum problem. I have experienced this on cars i have worked on it usually turns out to be a vacuum problem 90 percent of the time.

What is a rough shift


A rough shift is exactly what it implies.The shifting of gears should be a smooth transition. Rough shifting causes jerking, gear chatter, and undue strain on the components.
