Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action please open the hood and remove the positive battery connector. Let it sit for atleast 10mins. then reconnect it again after. This will make the computer relearn itself and can get rid of your shifting problems.

Just incase the problem still persists. Please do replace the transmission solenoids, they can be faulty or about to reach it's break point. One good reason why you have a shifting failure but luckily it's getting back up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Have an fx45.Should the tach read 25-3000 ROMs when moving at 75mph? Auto tranny seems like it should be in higher gear.


there is not info to be able to give a definite answer
to work it out
you have top know the diff ratio, wheel tyre circumference to be able to work from rpms of the engine to road speed
However as a pointer, most cars will be around 3200 rpms at 60mph as this will be direct drive and od causes a drop in rpms
Being an automatic find yourself a good section of low traffic road and start from stop slowly increase the rpms and watch the rpms. keeping the accelerator steady you will see when the auto changes by a drop in rpms. slowly increase road sped until you see the next drop in rpms and so on. Over drive normally comes in around 55 mph or around 3000rpms
I would think that it is working because 3500rpms at 75mph is reasonable rpms to be expected. If it wasn't working I would expect the rpms to be around 3800 to 4000.at 75mph

I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...


Could be a sensor , but without testing , this would be a guess ! Have seen TPS - throttle position sensors on chysler products do this , Mass air flow sensors on GM vehicles , plus bad IAC - idle air control motor . Don't think you would like to replace all these parts , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Have it tested !

Transmission will not shift out of 1st gear.


Check your transmission fluid level. If the filter has never been changed, now is a good time to replace the fluid and filter.

Automatic transmission shifting problems


20 year old vacuum hoses are done. Replace all you can. The little plastic ones too. They control everything, transmission, computer, fuel, brakes, everything.
