Perform ODBII scan. Look for speed sensor fault. Trans has to read speed to know what gear to engage. Could also be a governor problem. Try shifting from low to high gear manually

    The ETS switch most likely controls Torque converter solenoid (Torque converter lockup function) When switch is off (no lockup)The solenoid is in the pan on the valve body. The wires to it could have been disturbed during filter change or bad solenoid.

You probably need a transmission pro to diagnose it properly, but it doesn't sound good. Was the original fluid you drained dirty brown? And did you see significant amounts of metal shavings in the transmission pan? The severe discoloration of the fluid is due to the clutch pack material wearing off and dispersed throughout the fluid. If the fluid smelled burnt, it is almost certain the transaxle is toast.

2002 pontiac grand am gt 3.4 v6 transmission bucking on incline in overdrive?


This may not be a transmission related problem, it sounds more like an ignition misfire, have the plugs and plug wires ever been replaced? I would suspect the problems lie there. If you install new plug wires make sure you route them and loom them up in the plastic plug wire clips exactly as from the factory or you can have more problems with cross fire.

2002 Grand Am GT transmission problem.


Well, there could be several possible problems. It is not uncommon to have a little harder shifting after a fluid change for a period if the system was low prior to the change however, If you had the fluid changed using one of those reverse flush machines I see the problem getting worse. Most stations want to use the back flush system to do a fluid change now days. That is because the newer model vehicle have a metal filter screen which is re-usable and is designed at the factory to use Synthetic Fluid. In the older model vehicles, 2000 to 2005, manufacturers where still mixing the types of filters that were being used. This model has a standard filter that model uses the newer filter. If you went to Jiffy Lube and didn't specify you wanted a regular Fluid and Filter change they hooked it to the machine and charged $140+ for the job. A regular Filter and fluid change with regular fluid would have run about $50. Every time, and I mean Every time, I have had a fluid change using that back flush machine on a vehicle within 6 months I have had to have the Transmission repaired at a shop. If you didn't have the fluid changed using that backflush machine then your problem is just adjustment to the new fluid being at the proper level. If you did, start saving for a Transmission rebuild at a shop, it's not far away.

I have a 2002 Grand Am. Got the transmission checked and was told it's fine. It does not put out any codes and oil looked fine also. Around 3rd gear it feels to shift early. When I give it gas, it seems...


if your driving it normal your shift points should be from 1st to 2nd=18 to 22 mph
2nd to 3rd=28 to 32mph
3rd to od=48 to 50mph
these all change by how much throttle pressure is being use,
are you sure it's not fuel filter or plugs and wire surge your feeling
