    change oil and filter in tranny, and add a tranny treatment together with the fluid. and would recommend changing overdrive solenoid in tranny at the same time.

How to check transmission temp sender on 1992 w350 dodge


How to check the Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor. There is a reason for it. The sensor can skew ,a skewed sensor will mean either the computer thinks that the fluid is either too cold and thick for shifting or the computer will want to go into hot mode. Hot mode means no OD. Overdrive. Overdrive means no mechanical coupling.

Use an infra temp gun. There are two windows to a typical gun. the top window is the laser. It gives you something to point with. The bottom larger window is the infra red. This is what actually takes the temperature. Temp guns are getting cheap.

Place the gun on a hot transmission cooler line and compare the reading to the gauge.

Mazda 6 abs light on, temperature gauge goes up, hard shifting ATX


Sounds like more than one problem.
The ABS light is on to tell you the abs system is disabled due to a problem. Same goes for the traction control which could be related to the abs system problem. Both systems have to work together.
The temp gauge issue could be a faulty thermostat or the cooling system could be low on anti-freeze.
The shifting problem could be related to either system.

My 1980 mgb overdrive shifts fine cold when it reaches operating temp.it won't shift up or down.


Solenoid coil warms up and dissipates too much voltage with age and needs replacing. Bottom of overdrive unit. Sometimes cleaning and adjusting can help extend their life a bit.

Overdrive dosen't shift in.


Make sure u have a good thermostat in it. The engine temp must be at certain temp then a signal is sent to the transmission so it will shift into overdrive. Bought my 4 runner,91, was shifting fine until started getting cold then stopped all of a sudden. Checked the thermostat and it was in but had been gutted which allowed the engine not to warm up sufficient to allow the trans to shift into overdrive. Changed thermostat about $8, hasn't skipped a beat since.

05 Sierra 4x4 wont shift into OD until it has warmed up for a while, this only happens when there are sub freezing temps, is this a problem, and if so what should i do??


This is normal on newer vehicles. The transmission temperature is monitored and overdrive is held off until the transmission is up to temp. Nothing unusual or wrong with this. My Tundra does the same thing. The trans temp gauge gets to about the 1/4 mark before the overdrive kicks in.

It just wont shift into overdrive. i think it is a bad cylinoid on the trany. but im not an expert.


Before I would suspect bad solenoids, I would first suspect a sticking-open thermostat. The OverDrive is prohibited from operating until the engine coolant reaches 177 degrees F. If your temp gauge is reading below 1/2, I would consider replacing the thermostat.

Car will not shift into overdrive


As a response to solution #1 these cars do have an overdrive while in D-4, mine was shifting in and out at 70 mph until it finally quit and the rpm is now 3100 at 70 mph insted of 2700. The car still shifts 4 full times just not the fifth-OD. I still can't find out what fixes this problem either.

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


does it loose heat when you set still? is it full of coolent? whats the climent like were you at? is trans. low on fluid?when was the last time trans. was serviced? i know on most cars and trucks low fluid or old fluid can cause it to do what your saying, and also cold weather. some cars have a temp.sensor that won't let it shift into overdrive until car gets to a certain temp. with your temp. guage fluctuating the two could be related. has your service engine light ever come on and then went out, when it did this? if it ever has, have it scaned and see what codes show up. it might be that temp sensor i talked about. well thats the best i can do for you RON hope it helps or at least point you in the right direction to cure your problem. OLD SCHOOL.

1993 TOYOTA PICKUP (V6) TEMPERATURE PROBLEM


the trans will not allow overdrive until coolant reaches roughly 180 degrees, if the guage shows cool and the trans is not upshifting, or downshifts to third while driving. the problem is either a sticking (or missing) thermostat. follow the lower radiator hose to the engine and find the three 12mm nuts, remove these to get to it. a new toyota t-stat will have a little bleed valve on its face. position it upwards when installing. hope this is helpful.
P.S. Happy New Year
