    No I mean when I'm driving, I have it in drive and after I take off it automatically shifts once then it that's it it doesn't shift again.it's jus loses power and It sounds like it wants to shift but doesn't. Then it's like I'm revving the engine.but I'm not moving.

Is the check engine light ON? If so please check for any error codes appearing.

With the ignition switch in the RUN position, test for battery voltage at the circuit fuse in the transmission solenoid power supply circuit.

If battery voltage is present at the fuse, inspect the ignition voltage circuit between the fuse and the transmission for possible opens.

If battery voltage is not present at the fuse, test for continuity between the fuse and the ignition switch. If NO continuity is between the fuse and the ignition switch, repair the open in that circuit.

If you have continuity between the fuse and the ignition switch, the most likely cause is the ignition switch. Replace the ignition switch.

SOURCE: When I take off it's

Hi, you need to see a tyranny specialist to check out the car tyranny because of the description you gave about the car problem. It seems clearly to be a tyranny fault..

2004 Chevy trailblazer won't shift out of first


Have you checked transmission fluid recently. If the levels are low and/or if the dipstick smells burnt, there is a good chance your transmission is shot. Check it out & let me know; may have another idea if the fluid level checks out.

Pushing down accelerator & not getting any power, Tahoe barely moves


We're assuming the transmission fluid is at the correct level and not dark and bad smelling?

1989 dodge dynasty v6, fwd, transaxle 3 speed auto, good condition, experiencing shift problem, doesnot want to shift into passing gear, sometimes it does, right now it doesn't, any takers


most auto trans don't shift into reverse when low. Reverse takes the most fluid of all the gears.
Check for a bad shift solenoid or wires to and from that circuit. Most trans-axles have them now.

Doesn't want to upshift


the car is having difficulty with acceleration then it will stay in a lower gear longer to compensate. try not being so heavy on the accelerator and see if that changes anything (instead of trying to get up to speed quickly try leting the car bring itself up to speed in its preferred method) see how long that takes

Have you any ideas what i should check next?


Even though your shifter doesn't show 1st gear, your transmission will start out in 1st, then shift into 2nd at around 10-15mph. If you start out with shifter in 2nd, you should feel the gear change.
About all the average person can do with automatics is check the fluid, and possibly drop the pan and change filters. sometimes that helps with slipping or balky transmissions, but not always.
Good luck, Bill. Maybe somone else has some ideas?

Transmission


You need to check the trans fluid level first thing. Note the color of the fluid. Brown = bad news Redish is good. If you are in the redish (hopefully you are) Then you need to get to a trans shop to get the shift solenoids checked. A good trans shop will fix this problem with out trying to sell you a rebuild. Again High miles usually will result in a rebuild and the Brown fluid. Trans needs fluid changed (EVERY 30 K ) regaurdless what anyone says. This service is around 100 dollars. (fluid and filter change) Shift Solenoid At a good shop should be no more than 150.00 parts and labor.
