What code comes up if that is the problem
Posted on Jan 25, 2012
Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes,and diagnose any codes present.If no codes,or as an alternative,i have at work a Zoom Technologies box that allows me to monitor transmission function as being commanded by the vehicle's PCM,or manually override the vehicle,and take manual control of the transmission.It is an expensive diagnostic tool.If the trans is commanded manually,and 4th gear doesnt happen,then you're looking at electric solenoids on the valve body,or possibly damaged servos.Servos can be accessed with the trans in the vehicle,and inspected.If the servos aren't the culprit,then it is likely an internal problem.

Overdrive, also, will not engage if the car is not up to operating temperature.
