    Nope it was caused by the throttle position sensor.Put a new one on and the jeep shifts perfect!!

    That is the exact reason I always stress testing in the majority of my replies.....TPS and MAP sensor can cause delayed shifting...what you described sounded more like a "flair"....Glad to hear it's better now!!!!

    That's called flairing and is usually caused by worn seals inside the transmission (rebuild time)

That sounds like the 1st thing to check is the transmission fluid.Start the car ,warm it up,now shift through all the gears and stop in (N).With the engine running,check the fluid level.Top up if needed.If you do,look for leaks.Hope this helps

In my 95 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 just had the transmission rebuilt 3 weeks ago I was driving down the road and it shifted 1st to 2nd fine but from 2nd to 3rd it reved up all the way to 4500 rpms before...


That could be a perfect reason to take it back to the shop where it was just repaired for repeat service. Either that or you spun out in the mud.

I have a 2004 Envoy slt 4wd auto....The car will shift fine from 1st to 2nd gear but rpms climb and it does't go to 3rd. I tried to maunually shift through gears, but it still doesn't get 3rd?


its most def a purely transmission issue i believe its the solenoids. have it taken to a reputable trans shop near and have them diagnose it with there speciall code reader.

2nd gear drops hard


Dear Madam or Sir,

this is a well known problem with the Audi-transmissions, we do have a lot of failures with them over here in Germany. ;)

There are some software updates available, in many cases this fixed the problem.

Another possibility is a faulty transmission speed sensor, this is causing the hard shift behaviour.

First you should see the dealer to check the transmission control module´s trouble code memory and to check if there is a software update available for your car.

as a quick remedy 1st check your fluid make sure is clean and leveled/adjust your kick down cable for early shifting by loosening the cable till you establish the right shifting

You most likely have a broken sunshell inside the transmission. They tend to go out when the transmission is shifted to drive when while still rolling in reverse.

1989 jeep cherokee 6cly auto trans shifts great after gets hot 10-15 min. but when cold shift very high 4500 rpms 1st-2nd and wont shift to 3rd almost like stuck in passing gear. when hot shifts great no...


Sometimes you tranny may just be low in which case add fluid. Be sure to check while engine is hot, most likely in park or nuetral. It will say on dipstick. Also if you havent changed the filter you may want to do that, sometimes crud gets built up and it will not circulate well unless hot. If you change the filter, be careful as usually there is not a drain plug and the only way is to drop the pan. If you do go that route I advise buying a drain plug and drill a hole in pan and replace with plug so in the future theres less mess and a whole lot easier job. Hope this helps. Be sure to read directions on drilling hole for plug and be sure its drilled somewhere on the pan that doesnt get in the way of anything underneath.

Transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.


Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.
