Thanks for choosing Fixya. Is it just high rpms in second and third or has it did this at different speeds? Is this an automatic or standard?

    I would say it is an issue with your transmission then. Sounds to me like it is slipping, therefore, it causes the rpms to shoot up like that. Anytime you have a transmission worked on, it is costly. I know it will need looked at. I don't know your finacial situation, but it may lead to more problems if it is not fixed. Junkyards are great places to get parts from, but when it comes to a transmission, you just don't know what you are getting. I would try changing the fluid and filter. It probably won't solve your issue, but there is a chance. Either way, it can't hurt. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    To be honest, I couldn't say 100% either way. I would lean more to the bands but I am not for sure. Without getting inside it and taking a look, I don't know.

How do I stop tranny from shifting at high rpms?


Service the transmission and check the tension spring on the valve body to insure its not broken. Also on the side of the transmission there is a dash pod that is vacuum driven. Insure it works and the vacuum is hooked up. There is a shift cable that runs to the from the trans to the engine to kick down the shift on hard acceleration , this also sets your shift points. The dash pod is also adjustable with a small flat blade screw driver thru the vacuum inlet. If the RPM reeves up and then shifts, it is slipping and in need of rebuild.

Shifting high rpm


These transmissions are very sensitive to fluid type. If the trans fluid is not Honda specific then drain and refill with Honda fluid. The "jerk" may be transmission related but could also be the rear engine mount or another engine/transmission mount. The rear mount is hydraulically operated. They are often bad and are not cheap. Be sure all mounts are secure, unbroken and that the rubber portions are not cracked from age or weather.

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

When driving the truck tends to rev way higher than normal, when you are at a stop and then try to go depending on how hard you hit the gas it will bog down almost dying, or die. also when you are driving...


sounds like your torque converter going bad. change the tranny fluid, and look for metal shavings (have a pro do this), sometimes you can squeeze enough life out of a bad tranny/torque converter by changing the fluid, or it might just be a clogged tranny filter. change the fluid, and if theres metal shavings in it, sell it while it still runs.

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.

1994 Buck P/Ave Runs in reverse Not drive


If it was a modulator it would go into low but it would be screaming when it shifted into second and third. The modulator lets the trans shift without head jerking shifts and when unhooked the shift point is way up in the rpms before it shifts.Buicks are hard to beat when it comes to lasting. I do believe in my opinion i would replace the trans. Hope i helped a little God Bless you Greg
