About 3 months ago, during my 25-mile commute to the ambulance base where I volunteer, my transmission started acting up. After a few minutes of driving normally, it started to upshift very hard. Each upshift was accompanied by a noticeable "Bang!" and it felt like the car was hitting a pot hole.

I immediately stopped and checked the tranny fluid at a service station, but the fluid level was fine and it didn't have any burnt smell. The car has 76K miles on it and the transmission fluid was changed at 50K per the maintenance schedule. I had no choice but to continue on to the base, driving very gently.

I made a stop about 5 minutes before arriving, to pick up dry cleaning. I was in the cleaners for about 8 minutes, and when I came out the hard shifting had completely disappeared. The car drove smoothly for the next 3 months.

Now, this problem seems to recur any time I drive the car even remotely hard. We're not talking about full-throttle accelerations here, since my everyday driving stays below 2500 RPM to save on gas. But if I'm in a hurry and start driving a touch harder - crossing over 3500 RPM - then the tranny will start shifting hard within minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes with the engine off, and the problem is gone again

Shifter is seized ,,,linkage is working free . problem seems to be in transmission??


With the shift linkage disconnected from tranny, can you shift tranny by hand? If not, sounds like a tranny issue. There are safety issues with taking shift linkages loose from tranny, You have to sure vehicle can't roll, incase you do shift it. Safety is your responsibility.
Is this automatic or manual tranny?
Is the vehicle on level ground? Usually, you set the parking brake before you kill it, so the tranny isn't holding the vehicle. If the vehicle has a bind on the tranny, it may not want to shift?
I don't know year--make--model? I'm not a tranny person.

1989 Z-71 will not engage took linkage off manually shifted it . It held but kicked out before i got outa the drive


This may seem a bit odd, but here is what happened to me.

While changing a clutch plate, a bit of fluid leaked out. When everything was put back in and I tried to shift, it refused.
Removed linkage, shifted great. Replaced linkage, it would not shift.
In desperation, I added what seemed like, a miniscule amount of fluid to tranny. Everything now worked perfectly.

Hmmmmm...........go figure.

Check the wiring headed intot he transmission, if all good, remove the pan and check the interior,. of all good, then you can bet that you will need to replace the shifting solenoid in the tranny and you'll be good to go...

94 dodge spirit v6 shifts suddenly at 20 mph, seems to down shift then up shift twice?


You may be low on tranny fluid. Check when hot & in park. You may need to have the tranny filter replaced & the low- reverse band adjusted. Specks are found in a haynes or chilton manual. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Audi A8 transmission trouble


Hi, first i would check the fluid level if it is not a sealed trans. if the fluid level is ok, it may be that the TCM(transmission Control module is malfunctioning. this module controls the actual shift points. the TCM sends the shift signal to the shift solenoids that are located inside the transmission pan. these shift solenoids preform the engagements of the gears on command, which is initiated by this module i speak of. this module may be damaged,in return, causing this confusion in the shifting patterns you are experiencing.

Reverse clutches are burnt. Clutch material is getting into valve body causing late shifts since valves can't move. transmisison will have to be overhauled. wish i had better news. sorry

2001 Hyundai Tiburon automatic transmission problem


Okay, I baught an 01' tiburon last march. When I first had trouble with the tranny it wouldnt shift into fourth and no it wasnt the overdrive button. Then it started downshiftling like what your experiencing then I lost reverse. Ammco rebuilt the tranny. I would take it to them, they will inspect it for free. You may just need a tran fluid flush. You should know that in the automatics the tranny is the weakest part of the car. The engines are great, just everything around them seems to fall apart after 120,000 miles.
Ammco offers a free inspection service. However Just from experience - if you need a new auto tranny it is cheaper to buy one already rebuilt (with warrantee) and pay to have it installed than to rebuild the one you have.
Cheers to hyundai challenge : )
