1988 Chevy shifts late

We have a 1988 Chevy pickup with an automatic transmission that is shifting late. Once the RPMs are high it shifts to the next gear. Could it be a vacume line?

Hyundai tiburon running at high rpms when shifting


hmmm....it would seem as if your trans is having a bit of a hard time shifting so its sort of waiting before it can shift to the next gear (possible the gear system is having a problem shifting due to it sticking to some gears) i'd have to say....a mechanic can take a look to see why its seemingly shifting late at high RPMs to me IMO the trans is just having a hard time shifting with gears wanting to stick together making the whole trans have a hard time shifting

You need the bolt hole alignment from the transmission to see if it will work. Certain transmissions only align with certain motors. Next is you'll probably need to transfer all the electronics, a 2007 engine control computer is most likely highly advanced compared to the 1997 computer. Then there's the questions of will the transmission shift correctly to match the engine RPMs.

I have a 1988 Corvette with a 700R4, not wanting to shift from 1st. to 2nd. unless I leave my foot off the gas for it to shift. Contact mac1212sr@aol.com


Transmissions have "synchros" that adjust the speed when shifting from one gear to the next, because the engine's RPMs, while correct for, say, 1st gear, are too high to shift to 2nd gear.

If you're really careful, and an expert driver, you can shift a manual transmission from one gear to the next without using the clutch at all.


However, you seem to have a transmission problem with the 1-2 synchros.

NO 4 WHEEL DRIVE


Hello, If you have an automatic transmission put it in neutral and push the brake and while your doing that try to shift into 2WD. If it still won't move then try backing up about 30 feet and then try and shift. If you have a manual transmission make sure your pushing the brake while you're trying to shift and back up if needed. Good luck, let me know what you find.
