SOURCE: automatic transmission not shifting into 3rd or 4th

call a dealer and they will tell you you are suppose to change your transmission fluid every 2 years or 30,000miles but if you was carrying this much load you may have over heated the transmission so I would shop around and get a good deal at a transmission place where they can replace the filter and the fluid and adjust the bands on the transmission if needed

It's not electronic, It's a hydraulic problem, you need to drive it with a pressure gauge on the line pressure port to see if the pump pressure is dropping to zero at stop signs.

cheak your fluid level in your transmission as if it is low it wont go into gear properly you will move it from park or neutral to a gear it can take a while before it will kick into gear if you top up the fluid that should fix the problem if it still does it after this take it to a tranmission specalist and have it serviced as the bands may be streched

try driving and shifting each gear manually, by hand until u reach "D". Also try some "trans X" sold at autozone& Advanced auto parts. try to run RPMs as high as possible before shifting.

I would buy a used Trans and fix the other one over time. That way you can take it apart and it might not take a lot of money to fix it. Then you can sell it or save it. Also you may look at the different trans to put in yours. Maybe a Legacy GT 6 speed. Good luck and have a great day.

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.

I would say that a bearing froze up or something along those lines. So its not dead but you cannot split the case so finding and replacing it would be loads of fun.
