Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 99 rt dakota and the transmission isnt shifting properly and it will not go into overdrive. On a normal take off it shifts okay but not right and still doesnt go into overdrive and the faster i go the higher the rpms go. On a full throttle take off the transmission doesnt want to shift at all and it hits the rev limiter until i let off the gas and then it shifts. I have checked the speed sensor, checked the adjustment on the tv cable, and i have also checked the tps which im not sure if its good or not, the closed throttle voltage was 0.61 volts which is between specs but the wide open throttle voltage was 3.75 volts when it should be around 4.50 but i dont know if thats enough of a difference to consider it faulty. I dont know of anything else to check or where the problem could be coming from so i need all the help i can get.

Can a bad thermostat cause a transmission not to shift properly in a 2002 chevy impala?


It is absolutely possible for this to be the case. When the thermostat is not reading the temperature of the coolant properly, the engine ECU or computer will sometimes not allow the transmission to shift either correctly or at all. I have a ford ranger that will not shift into overdrive on cold days until the engine has gotten up to a warmer temperature. This is because the ECU is limiting the transmission from shifting into overdrive while the thermostat is still registering cold temperatures. Now if the transmission is shifting rough or randomly, that could be another problem like a shift solenoid inside the transmission. But as far as your original question, yes a bad thermostat can definitely be a possible reason for a transmission not shifting "normally". Hope this helps.

99 silverado will not shift into overdrive


have a 1998 K3500 silverado 4x4 with 454 motor and 4L80E transmission. I can not get over 55 or 60 mph. At that speed the transmission down shifts from 4th (OD) to 3rd. The speedometer also drifts from about 50 to 65. If I try to speed up it will down shift to 3rd. I have replaced the VSS on the trasfer case. Is there another speed sensor somewhere? Or could it be the TPS? The truck drives and shift normal up to this point. where should i look next. thanks

Transmission-overdrive not working properly


check the transmission fluid first .
============
overdrive allows the engine to run at lower RPM's , which increases the fuel
economy and also the transmission runs cooler

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
