1986 Lincoln Town Car drag shifts 1st to2nd. I just drained refilled trans,new filter and gasket, What would make the 1, 2 shift point go up to about 2500 to 3000 rpm's? it finally shifts then acts ok


I am not familiar with your specific car. However I would suggest checking the fluid level of the trans. If you do not have one get an owners manual or repair manual and make sure you are performing the check correctly. Some transmissions require a hot check, some require that you cycle through the gears just before checking, things like that. If there are special instructions you are not following you may not have refilled the trans to the proper level.

After checking the easy stuff first like low oil level, if it is high RPM(revs) & shifts hard(lurch when it does shift) then I am thinking the transmission filter & oil need to be changed. The transmission filter acts as a suction screen on an automatic transmission & as it collects contaminants to protect the inner workings of the transmission, it becomes plugged which greatly affects the ability to shift especially the high gears at faster acceleration.

I have Civic 2001 with 160,000 miles on it. i have problem when i am driving on high way on 80/mph rpm stay on 2800 and after 5 minuts rpm goes to 3500 and i feel loud noise like engine is taking more...


If the car type is manual transmission:
- Perform the clutch and pressure plate test.
PROCEDURE:
- Pull up the hand brake, shift the lever to 1st gear, rev up to 2000 rpm, release the clutch pedal at once.
- If the engine does not stall, replace the clutch, pressure plate, clutch bearing, regrind the fly wheel and pressure plate precisely.
- If the engine stalls, the clutch system is OK and do not need any clutch system repairing.
- If the clutch system is OK, check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).

If the car type is automatic transmission:
- Check the transmission control cable adjustment.
- Check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).
- Check the Automatic Transmission Fluid level in the transmission with the car on level floor, engine start, gear lever in P.
If the problem persists, contact a competent technician or service personnel.

Transmission is shifting at a high rpm is there a synchronizer or something that may need repairing


You might be low on transmission fluid. A transmissions fluid acts like a lubricant and as a hydrualic fluid. When the fluid is low sometimes the vehicle needs to spin at a faster rpm to initiate the shift. Check both the level and color of the fluid. It should be red. It's alright if its a little dirty, as long as you can still tell your looking at a red liquid you should be alright. Transmission fluid is properly check with the car at idle in park or neutral while on a level surface. The dipstick location varies from car to car but looks similar to the oil dipstick.

Rpm shooting uo to 4000 rpm when going between 0 and 30


Sounds like the car may not be shifting gears. So the first thing you should do is check the transmission fluid. If the car is not an automatic check your clutch adjustment. If adding fluid or adjusting clutch doesn't fix the problem the transmission or clutch may be going bad. Another way to check transmission would be to go down highway at about 45mph then floor it as if to pass someone and see if car goes or revs up and doesn't take off right away. If it doesn't take off right away have clutch /transmission checked.

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.


I had the same problem, replacing you thermostat should do the trick, i spent 8.99 on a new thermostat and 99 cents on a seal. For some reason engine temperature affects the transmission shifting. Good luck

Car shifts


Hi I am Vortash sounds like Torque slip check your fluid levels in the transmission. Rpm will rise if there is weak drive then as the vehicle reaches change speed it will snatch because the rpm is high .. if your levels are ok you may need to get your Torque converter checked out .. hope this helps regards Vortash
