It likely has overdrive. Which means it has a AOD transmission. The AOD doesn't have a modulator.

My 92 cadillac deville shift at 30mph and 6th do. You think it's the transmission .speed sensor


Check the vacuum line or hoses that run from the transmission to the engine. It may have come loose or you have a vacuum leak. If your vacuum is fine, you should change the modulator on the side of the transmission. That's what determines when your transmission shifts. Note..sometimes the diaphragm inside the modulator will burst and allow fluid to enter the vacuum line, so look forfluid in the line also.

Locate vacuum modulator chevy trailblazor 2003


Please verify the year of your truck. A 2003 Chevy Trailblazer has a 4L60E transmission. This transmission does not have a vacuum modulator valve. The 4L60 uses a vacuum modulator valve but the last year for that transmission was 1992. The perpose of the modulating valve is to control/regulate line pressure. The line pressure in a 4L60E is computer controlled or controlled electrically.

What is the 1/4" auto transmission vacuum hose connected to, from the intake manifold of a 1991 ford explorer 4x4 pushrod engine?


There should be a modulator (vacuum diaphram) on the transmission. The line from the intake manifold port connects to the 1/4-inch nipple on the modulator, which directs the transmission to shift gears at a pre-determined level of manifold vacuum.

87 buick century won't shift out of first


The first thing is to check the transmission fluid level, then check the vacuum modulator located out on the side of the transmission, and be certain that the vacuum line is connected to the vacuum modulator, and that the vacuum line also has no leaks and it is connected to an intake manifold vacuum source. If you remove the vacuum line from the vacuum modulator and if there is any transmission fluid is in the vacuum line then the vacuum modulator is faulty and it will need to be replaced.

Transmission does not shift out of 1st gear automatically. must get off gas for rpms to drop and then it will shift to 2nd gear. no other shifting issues.


There is a vacuum line that is connected to a vacuum modulator on the transmission. The vacuum modulator looks like a tiny inline fuel filter on the right rear of the transmission. Remove the vacuum line from the modulator, if transmission fluid spills out when the rubber hose is removed the modulator is punctured. The engine will **** your transmission fluid through the vacuum line and into the intake system and burn it through combustion. If the modulator is punctured you must have it replaced.
