    Service Center had replace the 'end clutch' 1 month back. after the replacement, 1st to 2nd gear very smooth. but now the problem started back again.

    what could be the problem on 3rd gear after shift 'dok' sound? it;s like something loosing spinning hit.
    could it be tourque converter faulty?

Best advice i can give is to go to the dealer for a diagnostic check ,vehicles from 2005 use encrypted software to stop general garages from doing work ,now a europeon market vehicle will have everything encrypted but a american market vehicle cannot be encrypted because of the emmisions test ,but i think that on 2008 vehicle the autobox software will be encrypted regardless of what market the vehicle is sold in so you cannot pull any codes ,this vehicle doesnt even have any dipstick to check the oil level its a dealer special tool and i think it might just be a bit low on oil but without my head under the bonnet and a test drive its hard to say

    honestly do not know what to advise here for the best apart from trading the vehicle in and buying yourself a diesel manual version which iam more acustomed too as these are legendary here for reliability ,Automatic gearboxes ok but prone to early failure compared to a manual ,as for the software well i dont think this is a problem as to weither its encrypted or not because if the fault is in the mechanics of the gearbox then eventually its a factory recon unit as no spare parts are sold for the gearbox other than the breather pipes here in spain .

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is a common problem on shifting gears. The problem is always the torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty this issues occur. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Mileage 132000. 1 to 2 shift normal. Trans. will not upshift into 3rd. gear, goes to 4th. It will downshif to 3rd. from 4th. When the trans. get hot from stop and go...


If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

Transmission flares


NO: 43-37
DATE: 2-25-2003
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
S60: 062000-152000
V70: 116000-230000
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
DESCRIPTION:
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.

'94 Protege's auto trans: no overdrive, poor automatic upshifting


Suggestion try to check if the release bearing of the transmission is still ok and check also the transmission oil level and if you need to change the transmission oil.
