Malfunction indicator on, Kia Forte 2012


Soooo...some of you that have seen my posts and responses may be able to tell that I am a "Hot-Head"!! I graduated from Montclair State university this past semester and had my graduation at the IZOD center at the Meadowlands yesterday..long story short, I was in a really rough mood for whatever reason and when Im in one of those moods, I shouldn't be driving especially in north jersey. Anyway, I was ripping my car around in sports shift mode because i have a 2010 Forte Koup 2.4l Automatic 5-speed trans. I'm used to driving it and ripping it around in sports shift since i got the car a couple years ago. To explain this correctly, I drive the sports shift kind of like it has a clutch (but we all know it doesn't) meaning when I go from 1st to 2nd I remain on the gas but sometimes when i like to hear the shifting take place, i will let go of the gas and shift the sports shifter up into 3rd gear. this is definitely NOT needed in an automatic, I'm supposed to keep my foot on the gas while shifting into a higher gear. So after a while of screwing around and driving like a mad man trying to get to my graduation, i came to a red light and for some reason the tip-tronic would not let me downshift to 1st gear nor would the engine automatically downshift to 1st like it is supposed to and usually does. At this point I would only be able to take-off in 2nd or 3rd gear (very weird I know). So i pulled over, turned the car off and restarted it and it seemed to be fine, then I put it in tip-tronic again and it did the same thing: wouldn't let me shift down to first while coming to a stop and remained in 2nd gear. when i finally arrived to my graduation the Engine Malfunction (AKA check engine light) came on. i know this can be due to more than 100 reasons but has anyone ever experienced this before driving their automatic KOUP while driving in tip-tronic? I have an appointment at my dealer for Monday morning and can't wait to see whats wrong with it. Also when i was leaving my house this morning, i put the car in tip-tronic and took off it seemed to be fine, then when i came to a stop sign the same thing happened again where i couldn't downshift to 1st and when i took off in 2nd and shifted to 3rd the car threw itself forward whereas if someone was close to me in front i probably woulda hit them from behind (thank god I didn't). After that happened this morning, I pushed the shifter knob back into regular automatic drive and the engine seemed to lose almost all power meaning when I pushed the gas and even floored it, the car did not pick-up or go anywhere. What could be happening here?!?! Please someone HELP!!!

1989 pathfinder transmission 3spd w/ overdrive works great when first started, then downshifting starts way early, started after alternater wentbad


Do you mean upshifting starts way early? Going from 2nd to 3rd in other words?
Ireally don't know your transmission,but the alternator problem might've possibly spiked and hurt your shifting solenoids in the ******. don-ohio (:^)

Cold auto Transmission won't shift into 3 gear until after driving 1 mile or so (driving at about 35 mgh) pickup then downshifts from 3 to 2nd then back to 3rd a few times untill I get to work (7 miles...


Sounds like a bad speed sensor. Perform an ODBII scan soon. ECU should delay upshift until coolant temp senses warm up. It will not work right unless a signal is present from speed sensor.

I'm having a transmission issuewith my 1985 toyota pickup 4x4. the tranny info is secondhand from a mechanic and i do not know auto transmissions. all i know is that the tranny seems to run and shift...


first things first. have you identified whether or not it is using a kick down cable? if it is, chances are this is your issue. if the colar breaks or the cable gets freyed and sticks inside the sheath, it will cause definate shift issues. let me know

My 1989 Jeep with AW4 transmission does not downshift or ?


This model has a tranny computor under the dash on the right side screwed to the bottom of the dash. If I remember correctly, there is also an inline fuse attached to the harness. Check the fuse.
