Can a bad thermostat cause a transmission not to shift properly in a 2002 chevy impala?


It is absolutely possible for this to be the case. When the thermostat is not reading the temperature of the coolant properly, the engine ECU or computer will sometimes not allow the transmission to shift either correctly or at all. I have a ford ranger that will not shift into overdrive on cold days until the engine has gotten up to a warmer temperature. This is because the ECU is limiting the transmission from shifting into overdrive while the thermostat is still registering cold temperatures. Now if the transmission is shifting rough or randomly, that could be another problem like a shift solenoid inside the transmission. But as far as your original question, yes a bad thermostat can definitely be a possible reason for a transmission not shifting "normally". Hope this helps.

Transmission is not shifting but trans is good, computer is good too


Wow! That sounds like a really expensive way to diagnose the problem! YES, a bad ignition switch can can cause your transmission to not shift correctly. If the problem had been properly diagnosed, you would have known this LONG before replacing the computer and the transmission if this was the cause. You say you "checked [your] wires" and that "all [are] good", but apparently, this is not the case. If the wires had been PROPERLY checked, you would know if you have the correct voltage at the transmission solenoids from the ignition switch and it would be unnecessary for you to ask this question.

Transmission over drive is causing the transmission to slip. When I take off the overdrive the transmission functions normally but it uses much more gas.


Roger, that doesn't even make a whole lot of sense to me. If the overdrive is causing the transmission to slip, wouldn't it also cause the fuel mileage to go down? Are you sure the transmission is slipping? Or is the transmission simply shifting in and out of overdrive? If it is, is it shifting at the proper speeds? Driving at around 40 - 50 Mph will sometimes make the transmission go in and out of overdrive repeatedly. This can be perfectly normal.

Have you checked your transmission fluid level?

Is your overdrive off light flashing? If the transmission is actually slipping the OD OFF light should be blinking at you to let you know there is a transmission problem. Either that, or the Check Engine light will be coming on. In either of these cases, you need to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes.

My A circut sensor and shifting modular are not working. how do I replace them and where do I find them on the car?


Do you mean "solenoid A Circuit" and "shifting module"? The solenoid A circuit should be tested before any parts are replaced. A computer fault code for this is very commonly caused by a bad connection at the transmission "through" connector. There is also a chancethat the solenoid itself is defective, but I would not spend the big bucks for this before testing the circuits leading up to the transmission. I had a vehicle very similar to yours that had a fault code for the "solenoid A circuit" that was being caused by the ignition switch. Then again, you just may need to replace your shift module, which is inside the transmission just above the oil pan. a "solenoid A circuit" fault code can also mean that a transmission overhaul is needed. Only proper testing and diagnostics can determine the actual cause.

Are there codes in the transmission computer? Likely the torque converter clutch is not disengaging or a holding member with the transmission could not be releasing. this could be caused by a faulty shift solenoid or a mechanical failure with the transmission. Check to ensure the transmission shift properly under all conditions. Also, stall test the torque converter, put it in gear hold the brakes firm and throttle the engine. Generally the torque converter will stall out around or above 2,000 rpm. If it stalls out much lower, check the torque converter clutch solenoid for proper operation.

Again, check the transmission computer for codes. You will need an advanced OBD1 scan tool which can communicate like a hikock scan tool ( ford factory for that era)

1994 Chevrolet G30 transmission problem


Its most likely the brake light switch, also connected to the steering column. It controls the Torque Converter Clutch, and when it is out of adjustment, it will not engage upper gears properly...The computer gets confussed and tries to protect the transmission.

When the engine gets warm the transmission doesn't shift properly


have u had the trans serviced every 60,000 miles? this would be a fluid and filter change. Dirty trans fluid can cause these kinds of problems, it can also be caused by a sticky shift solenoid (transmission is electronically controlled), do u have a check engine light or ay trouble code's? go to Kragen or Autozone and ask then to run a trouble code test, it's free, record any codes and post them back here.

Hot weather auto transmission shifting problem


Often this kind of problem it is caused from faulty throttle position sensor, you find out by connecting a code reader to your car computer.
throttle position sensor tells to your transmission control module how you are using the throttle, so that the car automatic transmission can shift to right gear, when this is faulty often you have transmission faults related to engine rpms and temperature, this can explain a trans problem happening only when engine is hot.
In some case it is not the sensor, but the computer module controlling transmission that is faulty.
To find out cause for the problem you need to connect a code reader to transmission module and to main computer module (ECU).
The code reader will return fault codes that allow to locate the problem. this kind of job can be done at any qualified garage.
