Sorry buddy, but the selunoids valves are not good, when you remove the trans filter you will find. A good mechanic could do the job because if you do not install the wires properly it will be a mess.

Hi expert I recently bought a Mazda familia bj5p 2001 model automatic transmission car its gear changes to 4th at speed 60km/hour(but according to my knowledge in other AT vehicles it occur at 50km/h) is...

Yes, this is normal. As long as the car is not slamming into gears or revving to a scream (unless you have the pedal to the floor), this will save you wear and tear on the transmission in the long run.
