Any testing done so far?

You most likely have ignition issues,if the
engine is hot & your going up hills

It down shifts based on shift strategy & vehicle
speed & many pcm inputs from sensors

Could be egr issues

Do you ever do any preventative maintenance?

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.

I have a 99 olds sihlouette that runs fine an transmission once warm will have rough shifting i replaced the tcs both of them an it still does it, could it b sumthing as simple as a filter also it is...


Hello! Yes a defective Camshaft Positioning Sensor (CPS) can cause what would appear to be erratic shifting due to incorrect timing...clarify what you changed? Is TCS, both of them a typo?
The Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) may also be involved...Give me the exact P code...

2002 Honda Civic Lx - TPS Sensor


The sensor does control trans.It takes a reading to where the throttle is and tells the trans what gear to be in and when to shift,down shift.So if your getting that reading and the car does not seem to be shifting right suspect that sensor..Hope this helps you and have a great day>>>

2002 Alero shifting hard


I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero and my car was running rough and stalling. Also when the car was shifting, it was making a "thud" sound. My service engine light was on, so I took it to Autozone to run their diagnostic tool. It came back with code P0108 and they advised me to check my vacuum hoses as a possible solution. I looked and found that my air hose running from my throttle body to my map sensor was disconnected. I reconnected the hose and the engine ran normally and didn't make any "thud" sound when shifting. My car is back to normal. So check your hoses. If its still running rough, you may need to replace your map sensor.
