Hard shifting and not downshifting

Ok my car when between 15 and 35 is shifting hard and plus it dont downshift going up any sort of incline.. What could be wrong? ive taken it to 7 different places including a auto analist and they couldnt find anything wrong with it, and even after driving it they said the shifter was sticking and not releasing like it should... the tranny fluid is a lil dirty but not bad.

When im going up a hill it downshifts on me and it dont have a lot of miles in it i need help


It is 5 or 6 years old

Miles mean very little,when your have problems

We need much more; than it downshifts

I suspect, if I drove it, that it has more drivability
issues.

The only reason it downshifts is the shift stratagy
was set by the PCM (computer)
So I suspect you have done no preventative
maintenance,based on your logic of low milage

You have to get back the engine performance
to clear up your shift issue.

No Codes or any lights on dash
New spark plugs
5W-20 oil your supposed to be using
New Air Filter
New Fuel Filter
And much more.

Wont shift after 40


check the shift cable, it may have broke or is way out of adjustment. the cable for downshifting. if the cable is ok, then check throttle position sensor at throttle plate on side of throttle body. this has a major effect on transmission shifting.

What do the settings S-D and plus minus on trasmission shifter m


The plus and the minus allows you to "manually" shift the automatic transmission; sort of like a manual transmission, without a clutch......minus = downshift, + = upshift.
Just put it in "D" and drive on.
