Yes TPS is an important sensor that determines shift speeds,times and delays,holds etc.oxygen sensor is important but less important for this role of transmission shifting.its failure can be for a variety of reasons,preheat element fault,sensor dirty,not going into loop,slow working etc.I would concentrate on tps first as it is purely a signal of where the throttle position is in relation to vehicle speed and load etc.check plug to it(it is located on the side of throttle butterfly,the cable to actuate on one side and this on the other side of pivot.Hope this helps

Kickdown does not always come in. Full on the gas results in a relaxed speeding up of the car instead of the heavily smoking burst of power.


Check the accelerator linkage for binding, as well as the kickdown cable (if so equipped, I don't think yours has one). After that, the next likely culprit is the throttle position sensor (TPS).

When I'm driving my kia sedona 2.9 automatic is crusing along fine, however when i put my foot down to increase the speed it kicks down a gear and then hesitates on the throttle which throws you backwards...


The throttle position sensor on the intake area and the kickdown switch are both suspect in this. If your pushing hard enough to shift down it could be that sensor is faulty, If not the change in position is to fast for the faulting position sensor. Those are the cheapest things to replace, The other maybe the transmission modulator that tells the unit to shift down.

99 dodge ram 1500 4x4. dosen't want to shift from 2 to 3 until you completely let off gas and rpm's drop. any ideas?


your kickdown lever/cable is starting to sieze. lubracate the kickdown cable, then inspect the kickdown linkage as it could be a broken cable clip.

I have a kickdown problem,i changed my throttle body when i realized the truck i bought had a 5.8l throttle body instead of what it should have... a 5.0l throttle body, it was because i had a code 121...


its that throttle body you put on doing it try changing the mass air flow meeter and setting up the throttle pedel poshion switch this may sort you out,,,
if the throttle poshion switch is not set up it throws the gear box into a wobbely

My 95 nissan maxima shifts hard from first to second then shifts good the rest of the gears


Look into issues with the throttle position sensor, i had the same problem with a 95 se. The sensor is directly responsible for shift intervals as it gives the ecm throttle position which doesnt go hand and hand with rpm. Sometimes the sensor needs adjustment, however this is not recommended if you dont have a scan tool to reset your ecm. check this page out

Transmission shifts late 89 jeep cherokee 4.0l Auto


discovered a service bulletin on my Jeep on "Alldata.com", which indicated "A/T - Throttle Position Sensor".I don't subscribe to the site, so I could only see this header. I thendid a search on Throttle Position Sensor and found a number of sitesthat described numerous transmission problems attributed to this sensor.I tookthe Jeep to a Chrysler dealer near me, and purchased the part for$69.00. I installed it myself, and the Jeep shifts beautifully, betterthan when I bought it.

A. The TSB you are refering to is number ATRATB324A, dated 1/1/1996 witrh the subject "A/T - AW4 Throttle Position Sensor (TP)".
TheTransmission Control Unit does, indeed, use an input, among others,from the TPS to determine shift times. So if there is a problem withthe TPS, it will effect transmission shifting. In fact, it is not allthat uncommon to see a TPS cause a transmission problem.


If the transmission works fine after the TPS is replaced then I would only recommend thata routine flush be done to it and perhaps treat it to a new filter.
