If it is a manual transmission, it is the clutch or pressure plate slipping.
If it is an automatic, the transmission is bad.

You have a mechanical bind. Disconnect the main linkage and work it all by hand. Everything should be free and slopy. Aerosol carb cleaner will help, but only when the engine is not running.

I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se with 99890 miles. I would like to know what rpm is the proper shift point from first to second gear? Mine shifts at like 3000 to 3500 rpm and shifts firmly is that...


Hello,well at what rpm it shifts at of course depends on how hard your pressing the accelerator at that moment,if you floor the accelerator it will shift at higher rpm (red line) but if you take off very slowly it should shift at a much lower rpm....but to answer your question 3000-3500 is a good shifting rpm( if the gauge red lines at 6000-6500 rpm) and firm shifting is a good thing,slow,sluggish and hesitant shifting is a sign of bad things to come from a tranny!! ps keep the engine oil,and transmission oil changed for long life out of your car engine and tranny. good luck and enjoy your new car......yz-maniac.

At what speeds should you shift gears in a 1999 Mazda B2500?


Shifting is determined more accurately by rpm's not speed. If you have a tach in the car, run the motor up to where you feel performance "flatten out" Regard that as your max rpm (for all gears) shift as needed about 500-700 below that number and all will be fine. (example: if motor flattens out at 3500 rpm, you should be shifting at 3,000 rpm or if not accelerating hard, at 2,800.) Going above the limit (shifting later) puts you outside the useful torque range and is not helpful.

My legancy 2000 automatic gear shifts at ruv 3400 rpm .is it normal?


depends on gas pedal position,the lighter you are accelerating the earlier the trans should shift,if it always hangs on in gear get it looked at...as it can shift at redline (5000-6000 rpm,if you hold the gas peadl down fully).
