Flushing never fixes anything, a trans shop will need to check the trans.

4L60E Transmission wont shift into 2nd or Overdrive


Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.

My 2006 Chrysler 300 hemi transmission keeps acting it shifts into first and then it wont shift after that if you shut down the vehicle and turn it off and start over then sometimes it shifts into all...


unless there was a code for your shift sensor then that was an expense that was not needed. the 1st thing I would suggest is a service. remove pan and have a complete trans flush then new filter and new fluids. about the same cost as the sensor. if not better, then it is probably internal and trans needs to come out

SLUGGISH TRANSMISSION


Discribe sluggish. Changing the fluid has nothing to do with shift stratagy or correct trans operation. Change the filter every time you do the fluid,unless your just pulling the plug every year or so,to change some fluid.
These vehicles have a tendency to have a bad Trans Solenoid Pack. If it bangs into reverse or shifts funny around 35 to 40 on a slight hill,that part may be going bad.
You need a proper working EGR Valve and TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) also.
Don't forget to flush the Power Steering Fluid--although unrelated to the trans.

Steering--Mercon (Not V)

Transmission shift from 1st to 2nd has hesitation


Look for vacuum leaks. There are tons of hoses, replace dried and cracked ones....

The trans shift issue that you describe seems that the trans is being told to hold back the shift, there is a unit at the end of the vacuum tube, AT the trans, called a modulator. They have a rubber diaphram inside that fails and then trans fluid gets sucked into the engine, via this vac. hose. Pull it off and see if any trans fluid comes out...Should be ZERO.

Also, your vehicle must have regular trans service, especially you must change the FILTER. Disk material eventually clogs the filter, then trans fails really fast.

You may consider having a quick lube shop do the trans service, they use a machine that pumps new fluid in while unit is running, totally flushing converter, cooler,and lines...but DO replace the filter.

To be fair, the service suggestion has nothing to do with yoru complaint, necessarily...

Tramission prom


Take it to a transmission shop that has a Tech 2 scanner. The tech 2 scanner will not only scan the transmission but can also recalibrate the shift points. Other reason to why it wont shift under WOT it low transmission fluid pressure so check the fluid level and have a pressure test done on the line.
The 4L60E is a great transmission but there are some things that don't work well with them like some shift kits. The ECM is program the shift points which get's messed up if done wrong. best upgrade on the 4L60E was to swap out the servos for corvette servos or after market performance one's all for under $100.00 and in most case better then a after market shift kit.
Good luck and hope this help. take care not to burn up the transmission.

Transmission shifts irratic when cold


If fluid level is good, the hydraulic value of the trans fluid maybe low or worn. If fluid is old or burnt, (never been changed, or high mileage,) sometimes not a good idea to flush. Highly suggest LUCAS (ONLY) Transmission Treatment, carefully read instructions on bottle. Transmission replacement is expensive, following maintance will prove rewarding! If you wait to long to flush trans your worse off!!! Hopefully helpful!!!!

My transmission wont shift from 2nd to 3rd gear


did you drop the pan replace the filter and add four to five quarts,If still a problem try doing a full transmission flush at a quick lube.
A transmission flush with Lucas trans tune up will probably fix your non shift issue, try this first before looking into a new tranny !

Auto Transmission 2000 Rodeo


It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
