While driving my jeep seems to be shifting gears the rpms rev up and then goes back down almost as if surging I changed speed sensor as a guess so far but did not work?


old 1995
we need vastly more symptoms then that,sorry
if the engine surges, that is first. (surges in 1 gear)
but if a transmission down shifts that is normal, rpm rises
(after all its a lower gear) (higher numeric ratio)
find any machanic in town
ask him test drive it.!
10 min.later he wilt tell you
its trans issues.
or its engine, super easy this is driving.

seems you can not, and learning is 1hour in car class..or 10x that lacking facts of drive train functions.


stop guessing. why spend cash on a useless sensor now.
spend cash on $1 shop diagnosis and WIN.
i promise !

or get it scanned.
and post all those DTC errors. P0700? and more.

Can i drive in other gears on the highway besides being in drive...I have a 99 Lincoln continental? ?


you should use the highest gear possible to allow over drive to kick in, other gears will slow and limit the speed you can drive ,and stress the tranny

Drive it slowly to a reputable transmission shop. There is nothing you can fix yourself.

Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode


I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
