In that case the TCM - the computer that controls the transmission - is defective, replace it.

Hi


if you are in 6th gear, doing 2,000 RPM, and you want to drop down to 5th gear, you need to shift to neutral, let the clutch out, so that the transmission is connected to the engine, rev the engine an extra 500 RPM or so above 2,000 (because that's what the difference is between 6th and 5th gear at the same MPH), then quickly clutch, and slip the shifter into 5th gear, before the engine RPMs drop below the target point. If you do it right, upon letting the clutch out, the transmission and engine speeds will be matched, and the downshift will be smooth.

Sometimes it's good to blip the throttle a bit higher than your target RPM, because the engine will drop the speed off really quickly. The stock clutch is garbage anyways, taking off in 3rd, it is not going to last very long. third gear starts will most likely shorten the life of the clutch, Single and or Dual disc


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Change trans fluid and filter. Sounds like filter is starting to clog up. Trans fluid & filter should be done every 30k. More often if you do alot of heavy towing

I have had my tiburon less than a year but about a month ago the transmission started to act weird. At first it began shifting between i think third and fourth gear which made the rpms go higher than they...


the trans computer has seen a problem possible a bad sensor, or an internal problem, and puts it into a safe mode, or limp home mode , it wont shift , it will stay in 3rd gear, this way this reduces the possibility of further damage trans damage, when you turn the ignition off and back on it resets the tcm, my advice is to take it to your local dealer, they can diag your trans as they know the product, i dont advise pep boys, or discount auto parts.

2000 VW Jetta squealing when shifting from 2-3rd and hard shift down when going up hill


hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
