Mitsubishi express van 2.4 auto not changing into 4th gear. Any ideas?
If it's hesitant to shift, or not shifting at all, it could be a simple fix.
The first thing you'll have to do is to check the transmission fluid. Allow your van time to completely warm up before doing this. I recommend you do this while it is running. If it is low on fluid, there's your problem. If the fluid level is okay, then you may need the transmission filter and fluid both changed. Changing you fluid/filter is relatively simple. It's similar to an oil change with the exception being that the filter is inside the transmission, visible only when you remove the transmission pan. The filter isn't like an oil filter, it's more akin to your filter on your home A/C unit. Some have a replaceable filter, and some have a permanent filter that you'll have to remove and clean before re-installing. If you do need to replace it, they are inexpensive and found at any auto parts store. If it's still giving you problems, unfortunately it may be an internal problem that you'll have to take to a transmission specialist. Make sure to find out exactly how much fluid it holds and what type of transmission fluid it needs before you change it.
