Transmission relay. It is really cheap. Cost about $35 to have a shop change it. But it sounds like it is in LIMP mode.

Between first and second gear it shutters/vibrates

Low transmisson fluid, Transmission filter or faulty transmission pump, the pump usually will whine before it goes out tho, Im leaning towards the filter or low fluid. Check your transmission control selonoid.

Car wont go 30 mph

if when you get to 30 miles per hour the rpms are excessively high then the 3rd gear on you're transmission is out. you can try changing the transmission filter and fluid but most likely will not help and you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt anyways. I'm assuming its an automatic transmit ion and therefore if high rpms at 30 miles per hour its sadly the transmission

1996 GMC suburban wont upshift.

when u changed the fluid was it dark /brownish and smelt burnt and was their filings or shavings on the magnet in pan if so more than likely your transmission may be fried---a bad vacuum that would cause shifting problems would also cause the truck to run rough and or stall

I will be honest here...I am a woman who knows NOTHING about cars. Also I am a single mom, who cant afford yet another here goes. I have a 1996 Lexus ES 300...this doesnt happen all of the...

It may be your transmission. If it shifts hard going through gears also then it may be that. But what you decribed it it slipping gears which would target your transmission or rear end.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with

I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

Car sounds like its not shifting once I hit 30 mph.

85k is not high mileage. once you reach where it won't shift try letting go of the gas pedal completely for about 2 seconds and then push again and see if that makes it change. you may want to try to slip stop in your transmission. well if letting go of the gas pedal works you may have a problem with your modulator and i can tell you that's not cheap to fix

2007 300c 5.7 at time seems to go into netural by itself at 30 to 40 mph than after 5 to 10 seconds recovers

Sounds like you have transmission trouble, going into neutral at 30 to 40 mph sounds like it may have a second or third gear slipping.
Sorry to say you will need to take it to your dealer or an independent repair shop to have the transmission checked because there are no quick fixes

Transmission (auto) is only going to bout 20 to 30 mph. Wont go into another gear. Could it be it needs an oil change? It has 175,000 miles 1993 4cyl . thank u!

wow, seems like you got your money out of that motor and transmission, have your transmission flush and filter change. Having 175k Im sure that transmission filter is dirty and may be clog up. change filter and flush will solve some of your problems and give it a bit more life to your transmission. if that does not help, it time to rebuild it or replace one from a junk yard.
