Hey Nashua,

Your Clutch is messed up by what sound of it. You probably have to replace your clutch pretty soon. The car will not die on you when you are driving or anything like that but you should start saving some cash for that clutch replacement you are looking at about $600 to $800.

SOURCE: slow shifting when engine is cold

I have the same problem with my 97.... especially shifting from 3rd to O/D... I've had the tranny serviced and flushed.... It still does it until the tranny warms up.... the tranny's in them are temperature picky!!!!! It's the nature of the beast!!! Wait until spring and everything will be good until next winter!!! If you're really concerned with it you can put a "cold front" on it or block half (NO MORE THAN HALF) of the tranny cooler with cardboard thru the winter months

SOURCE: transmission does not shift at the proper RPM. The

At your Bronco's age, the vacuum hoses are suspect. The plastic ones break, the rubber ones crack and leak. There is a specific one to the transmission to control shifting, usually. Some vehicles have a modulator valve on the transmission; when it fails you will see white smoke at the tailpipe and you will lose trans fluid. Check all the vacuum lines, large and small. A vacuum gauge is a great tool, it will tell you a lot about an engine.

How to reduce high rev in engine when accelerating

Assuming you have an auto transmission, your only choice is to ease off the gas when you want it to change gears. Then apply slight pressure on the gas to continue to accelerate.

How can having a broken transmission cause the headgaskets to blow?

yes it could, should never allow your engine to rev up that high continuously during normal driving. Sounds like the tranny needs a new Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) causing it to shift incorrectly, or incorrect shift cable adjustment. A check engine code may help you identify the problem, they read it for free at Autozone.

Engine speed hunts on idle. Auto trans slow shift.

The fast idle valve is inside the throttle body. Sometimes it backs out and needs turned back in (it's threaded). This will cause the loping idle.

Get transmission filter changed with new fluid. Honda does not recommend transmission flushing.
