What are common problems that cause the tranny to shift harshly when engaging or shifting into rev. On a 95 one ton dually 2 wd automatic with a 454 big block


What most people see as a harsh transmission shift when transitioning from forward gears to reverse gear is really just the drive train taking up the slack in the connections. You need to realize that over time the universal joints in the drive shaft, as well as the pinion and ring gears in the rear differential will experience wear. When you are going forward the drive shaft is turning one direction, the u-joints and differential gears are all taking stress one one particular side. When you shift to reverse, everything reverses. So, the first thing to happen is the front u-joint changes direction. There will be a small amount of slack in the joint from wear. This slack will cause an irregular motion while it is taken up. This irregular motion is propagated to the rear u-joint, which must do the same. It will induce additional irregular motion, which is passed to the pinion and ring gears in the rear differential. In a new car/truck, you won't hardly notice this since all the wear surfaces are new and at factory tolerances. Give the vehicle 60-100K miles or more of hard wear and the result of this shifting to reverse can be a relatively loud clunking noise that can shake the vehicle. Replacement of u-joints can alleviate some of the issue, but the rear end wear can only be addressed with replacement. But as we say.....if it ain't really broke, why fix it?

Suzuki aerio transmission


the A'T tranny can do like 30 or more things wrong,
fails hot or cold,? or both.
slip or flares in any gear?
will not up shift right
will not down shift right.
harsh sifting. in either direction.
skips gears. (limphome is top reason)

what to do. (well tell what it does wrong and good)
check fuse, in both fuse boxes.
SCAN the PCM and see all those TRANNY errors.? do that or fail.

When i put my car into drive it jerks forward suddenly and when i put it in reverse it jerks backward also. its never done this before


1. Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.
2. Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
There are two thing that may be happening that you have described, but you can tell which one it will be since your driving the Blazer. Both are simple to repaire, but to change the EPC. Your going to have to drop the transmission pan so that's going to be a transmission shop and call around, the EPC can be replace the same time there draining the transmission fluid when servicing the transmission which is about $110.00 for fluid and filter replacement and additional $65.00-$80.00 for the EPC valve.
EPC (electronic pressure control) valve TPS (Throttle position sensor)
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck. If it's the EPC failure, replace as soon as possible. may casue the sunshell to fractured or splines to sheared off.

You have a faulty ECU which will need replacement. You may have damage to your gearbox now as a result.

Transmission is shifting hard and slow to pull on a 95 silouette also makes clucking sounds while accelerating


Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Shifting out of first takes longer and feels rough


1-2 shift is delayed and harsh, may not shift into OD: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.

Visit a transmission shop and have them put a line pressure gauge on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).

Here is just a few things that are common to what you have described, I would start checking the Wire leads to the TPS and TPS it self. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your Transmission running 100% again.

Improper shifting or lack of shifting


it sounds like a transmission slip and/or linkage problem, take it to the shop

Harsh or improper 1-2 upshift


Have you had your throttle position sensor checked out? It'll cause a harsh and/or delayed shift from first to second. Second thing to check out is your PCM, as it controls the shifting of your transmission.
