Sounds to me like you have a vacuum leak someplace, check the vacuum lines for one unhooked or cracked,, a little trick you can do after checking them all and finding nothing,, spray a little wd40 in the air around the intake manifold and along the vacuum lines while the motor is idling, if it picks up in RPM's all of a sudden,, thats near your vacuum leak

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive


Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

My 99 jimmy with a 4L60E, on a downshift (kickdown) at highway speed or any speed really when downshift by pressing down the accelarator or downshifting by hand the tansmission feels like it's in neutral,...


First off there may be nothing wrong. At highway speed, the trans will shift down to 1st, but you won't feel it. If should feel like neutral. Does it shift normally when your "wide open throttle" from standstill? If it shifts properly in this situation, then your fine, don't worry. How about wide open throttle at say 25mph? how about 35 and 45? anything over that and its gonna feel like neutral. IF your convinced that your passing gear is not working right, it could mean that its out of adjustment, and needs a little more push, more throw, or kinda like adjusting the rod out a little bit further. Adjust your "passing gear linkage" or kickdown as you imply. Second guess would be low on transmisison fluid, filter, and last, the transmissoin control selonoid. Again I suggest its doing just fine, if it shifts down at any speed.

That doesn't sound like a problem, it sounds like it's shifting out of "Overdrive" due to low RPM. That would be normal. If it's more noticeable now than in the past, that's likely just wear of the parts (that's an old transmission at this point), or need transmission fluid checked/replaced. Only someone who knows transmissions can really diagnose if there is any problem, but what you are feeling is the normal downshift out of "overdrive" into the next gear, the only question is is it more noticeable now than in the past.

I want to see a picture or a diagram of where the vacuum line for reverse is on a 2001 2500 Chevrolet silverado


there is no vacuum line for reverse. the transmission uses fluid and silanoids inside for reverse. if reverse isn't working the low/reverse band is blown. you can test it by driving and manually downshifting into 1 and if it downshifts through all gears but wont downshift into 1st (feel the truck slowing down from engine braking) then your band is broken. time for a trans rebuld

Those are known for having bad torque converters which eventually ruin the transmission. sounds like the transmission is already bad, Sometimes if you catch it early enough, you can just replace the torque converter and it would be fine.

bad design flaw with the transmission kick down cable make sure you are in OD first but if you are then this cable is adjustable it is next to the throttle cable and tells the trans when to downshift only adjust very little increments as this can easily blow your tanni as you may already know this feeling
