1999 chevy lumina doesn't shift into overdrive, why?

Describe your 1999 chevy lumina (auto transmission) that doesn't want to shift into overdrive. Shifts fine from 1st to drive (3rd), just won't go into overdrive (4th). Any ideas on the problem? Is it electrical or tranny?

If it won't go into overdrive a speed sensor within the transmission may not be sending the shift signal to the transmission. Check fluid levels to make sure that's not causing the problem. Also, check that the fluid is red color and clean.

Transmission probably needs to be serviced at a reputable shop if you want this problem fixed.

Needs a new sensor that's all unless fluid is low.

When is the last time you had the transmission fluid changed? If you can't answer you might want to look into doing that before replacing a Automatic transmission which can be more $$$ than the engine.

1999 Corolla Auto Transmission Overdrive Downshift problem


The shift modulator in the transmission is dirty or defective. You will need to have it professionally inspected and repair. It my be just a dirty valve body that can be removed and cleaned. If your lucky and that is all it is cost $200-$300.

Have you been changing the transmission fluid according to factory spec?

I hope this helps. Please post feedback.

As far as the speedometer not working and the transmission not shifting; I'd check the speed sensor connection on the tail of the transmission and follow the wiring to see if it is cut somewhere. If the PCM doesn't get a signal from the speed sensor, the transmission won't shift. Did the auto have wires get chewed by rats after sitting?
