I put a liter of transmission treatment in my trany, it would drop out of overdrive when it was hot. This seems to have solved the problem.

1999 mitsubishi montero sport. Randomly started hesitations and low rpms in gear at idle. and highway speeds dropped rpms slightly and when let off accelerater rpms drop too quick and low. Any ideas?


Engine light on? Many things can cause this. Mass airflow sensor, throttle pos. sensor, cam sensor, idle control valve, O2 sensor, vacuum leak etc, diagnosis be great. Good luck

Why does my 2002 Ford Windstar se idle at 3000 rpms and drop back down below 1000 rpms


The mass air flow sensor, the throttle body and the idle air control motor need a good cleaning. Use a brush and brake clean everything except the Mass air flow sensor, just spray it down, both sides. After you clean it, it will take a few second to restart.

My 1995 buick lesabre electronic transmission- it shifts at the wrong speeds and sometimes will not shift into high gear on the highway, but sometimes it will work. and sometimes it loses gear on th


First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

Probably too late but for other users searching: You probably have the 4T65 transmission like I did. This is the vehicle "hunting" in and out of overdrive on the highway (marked "D" on your dash) and you're probably on level (or close to) ground. You have two options: drive in the gear selection "3" (more fuel consumption though) or change your speed. I used to drop down to 53 MPH and it would stop, or on the highway @ 65 for it to go away.
Seems to be common in this trans around 60 MPH. Also - start saving for another vehicle or repair. This trans will start to slam into 2nd gear from a stop after it warms up (internal solenoid fix required) OR it will shudder horribly from a stop after a highway run. My fix was to replace the solenoid in the trans (there's video on YT) by pulling the right side of the drivetrain off the van and pulling the trans cover. If you go this route - you *must* ensure no -and I mean NO- dirt gets in that tranny while the cover is off.
Good luck!

High RPM shifting?


seems as if the trans isnt shifting as it should and needs to be checked (could be the shift solenoid not working properly or gears are sticking)

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

Engine will rev. No drop in speed, no increase in


likely what you are seeing is the first signs of slipping. If permitted to continue, likely it will get worse and you will then lose a bit of speed when it happens. In warmer weather the trans runs a bit hotter and will react to that. If you cannot hear the revs increasing but the tach says they are, it's also possible that for some reason the tach isn't reading correctly. Any good tech should be able to tell the difference. Problem I have is that I'm here and can't drive it to give you a "definite" on either.The only way to verify this yourself would be to attach an external tach to the engine and compare the rpms of the one in your dash to that one.
