I Had My Transmission Rebuilt And The Transmission Has Been Replaced 3 Times Already Because Transmission Shifts Late And Passing Gear Kicks In Late What Could Be Going Wrong With The Transmission?

The shift point are set wrong or else the trans is getting the signal to shift late. Not sure what trans we are talking about but check and make sure the vacuum line in not bad or else a switch is bad on the trans that tells it when to shift.

1995 gmc sierra 1500 automatic transmission idles fast, and late shifts

Do you have a service engine light on? If so the first thing to do would be to check for what codes may be stored.
You can also check for vacuum leaks. A good place for a leak is the TB base gasket. Those start to leak and give a fast idle.
As for the late shifts, just about all you can do is check fluid level. The shifts are computer controled. 93+ trucks have the 4L60E. Not even a TV cable to check adjustment on.
Fix the fast idle and the late shifts issue may go away.

In first gear it shifts super late and then when it finally shifts the O/D light on the dash flashes witch i know means that there is a serious problem that the computer is seeing... but what could be the...

IF it still is shifting threw the gears and reverse. It is probably sticking solenoid pistons, (O rings).
Put some transmission additive in it. this will help with the o rings. There could be other problems, but this only costs about $10.00. to have the transmission looked and repaired will start at about $1000.00

Transmission will not shift out of first gear into second gear without letting off the gas petal.

Hm. On the 2001 Excursion transmission, there is this problem with shifting into second gear.


Transmissions have sensors in them that detect speed and pressure inside the bell housing.

If one of the speed sensors is not working you might experience a no shift or late shift situation.

Also, if the sensor is good, but the passage ways are clogged with clutch material due to normal wear and tear, the transmission will experience late shifts or even no shift situations.

Have you had the transmission flushed and filled with new transmission fluid, lately?

If you haven't spend the $100 or so to have this service performed.
It's not a cure all, but sometimes it can help and is cheaper than getting your entire transmission rebuilt or replaced.

I would start there.

Good luck to you.

2000 accord ex w/ 4 cylinder engine. The light around the D4 (indicating gear) flashes and the car accelerates very slowly in cold weather until the engine gets warm. What is wrong? How to fix?''

The D4 indicator light flashing indicates that your car's computer believes that there is something wrong with your transmission.

This is what the manual for your 2000 Accord says:

The "D4" indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch ON (II). If it flashes while driving (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission. Avoid rapid acceleration and have the transmission checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon as possible.

Sometimes this will mean that you are simply low on transmission fluid, but you really should have it checked.

Hope this helps you.

Engine taking a few seconds to pick up when about

This is the standard advice, probably worth following:

1997 chey pu auto trans 1st and 2nd shift good drive doesn't shift until rpm's are 3500-4000 rpm

Do you get a check-engine light, or does the transmission O/D light flash? Many times, this is due to a speed sensor on the transmission. When the sensor goes, the transmission has to do default shift timing and it will shift very late. Usually, this will set a code in the onboard computer.

Transmission slipping

do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.

Honda passport trans light flashing

Most likely you have a bad transmission pressure solenoid. You weren't too specific so here's what to look for: The engine light, the trans light and the shifiting, if when you drive on a level surface the suv seems to shift late and very rough...that is probably what it is. It's a few hundred to have fixed because they have to pull the casing off the trans and they'll want to replace the fluid and filter too. good luck.
