Hi there, no you are not going to need a new transmission. what is happening is probably one or two things. the transmission fluid is low or the transmission control solenoid is acting up. good luck and appreciate your question

Auto transmission not changing down to 1st stage while in motion, causing the car to buck. I stomp on the gas pedal to kick it down it loses power and takes at least 1 second to respond.


Auto transmission not changing down to 1st stage while in motion ? You mean not down shifting to first gear ! Which transmission does your cavalier have ?
Automatic Transaxle - 3T40 Automatic Transaxle - 4T40-E
Some of this may be over your head , if so I suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop .
Electrical/Garage Shift Tests
Perform this test before a hoist or road test in order to make sure that electronic control inputs are connected and operating. If you do not check the inputs before operating the transmission, you could misdiagnose a simple electrical condition as a major transmission condition.
Use the scan tool on the Hydra-Matic 4T40-E transmission for valuable information and accurate diagnosis.
  1. Move the gear selector to Park (P) and set the parking brake.
  2. Connect a scan tool to the DLC terminal.
  3. Start the engine.
  4. Connect power to the scan tool.
  5. Verify that the following signals are present on the scan tool:
  6. ?€¢
    Engine speed (RPM)


    ?€¢
    Transmission input speed (Turbine)


    ?€¢
    Transmission output speed


    ?€¢
    Vehicle speed (miles/hour)


    ?€¢
    A/B/C Range


    ?€¢
    PRNDL select


    ?€¢
    Desired PCS


    ?€¢
    Actual PCS


    ?€¢
    PCS duty cycle


    ?€¢
    Brake switch


    ?€¢
    Engine coolant temperature (Coolant)


    ?€¢
    Transmission fluid temperature (Trans Temp)


    ?€¢
    Throttle angle (TPS)


    ?€¢
    System volts

  7. Monitor the BRAKE SWITCH signal while tapping the brake pedal with your foot. The brake switch signal should be:
  8. Released -- when the brake pedal is released
    Applied -- when the brake pedal is depressed
  9. Monitor the PRNDL SELECT signal and move the gear selector through all the ranges.
  10. Verify that the PRNDL SELECT value matches the gear range indicated on the instrument panel or console.
    The gear selections should be immediate and not harsh.
  11. Move the gear selector to Neutral and monitor the throttle angle signal while increasing and decreasing engine RPM with the accelerator pedal.
The throttle angle should increase with engine RPM.

If you have completed the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system check, if the diagnostics are functioning properly and if no DTCs display, you may use the Typical Scan Values in the table below for comparison within the appropriate transmission. These typical values are an average of display values recorded from normally operating vehicles. They represent the display from a normally functioning system.
You should never use a scan tool that displays faulty data. The problem should be reported to the manufacturer. The use of a faulty scan tool can result in misdiagnosis and the unnecessary replacement of parts.
Only the parameters listed below are used in this manual for diagnosing. If a scan tool displays other parameters, the values are not recommended by General Motors for use in diagnosis.
Scan tests are performed under the following driving conditions:
?€¢
Idle


?€¢
Upper radiator hose is hot


?€¢
Closed throttle


?€¢
Park or Neutral


?€¢
Closed Loop


?€¢
Accelerator OFF


?€¢
Brake not applied

Some times. when I back up and I jus the reverse kick to hard especial when is cold even if the rpm. are about 600 to 700 rpm


Double check your automatic transmission fluid level as provided precisely by your owner's manual. If this is not a solution, you probably need a professional inspection by a well-rated transmission service, if not your dealer.

Transmission shifts early (Is this normal?)


the reason it might be shifting so early is because of the gear ratio in the rear end of the truck. it is common in the 2 wheel drive basic model pickup because they were designed to work not travel.

sounds like the speed sensors. there are 2 of them. High and low speed. run about $20 each and are VERY common on dodge's. if you get a code 25 that is the problem.

I got engine code PO700 and PO733 on my 06 charger


P0733-GEAR RATIO ERROR IN 3RD

Theory of Operation
The Transmission Control Module (TCM) constantly calculates the transmission ratio based on the input speed sensor 1 and 2 (N2-N3) signals and the calculated output shaft speed. The intent of this diagnostic is to detect if the transmission is slipping or an invalid gear ratio is present.
  • When Monitored: Engine RPM greater than 450 RPM , output speed greater than 180 RPM , no N2 - N3 input speed sensor errors present, no gear selector lever errors present, no ABS system errors, and all wheel speeds above 450 RPM .
  • Set Condition: No shifting operation and detected gear is not the actual gear. No shifting operation - detected (calculated) gear is less than actual (expected) gear, no plausible gear is calculated, actual turbine speed - calculated turbine speed is greater than 300 RPM or calculated transmission ratio is above threshold. During an Upshift detected (calculated) gear is less than actual (expected) gear. During Downshift - detected (calculated) gear is less than actual (expected) gear.
Possible Causes
  • LOW TRANSMISSION FLUID
  • OTHER TRANSMISSION DTC's PRESENT
  • INTERNAL TRANSMISSION FAILURE
Always perform the NAG1 Pre-Diagnostic Troubleshooting procedure before proceeding. See: Transmission Control Systems\Testing and Inspection\Procedures\NAG1 Automatic Transmission

Diagnostic Test
1. CHECK FOR OTHER TRANSMISSION DTC's
With the scan tool, check transmission DTC's
Are there any solenoid and/or solenoid supply voltage DTC's present?
YES >> Refer to the Transmission category and perform the appropriate symptom(s).
NO >> Go To 2 2. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL
Check the transmission fluid level.
Is the fluid level correct?
YES >> Go To 3
NO >> Properly adjust the fluid level.
Perform NAG1 TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TEST - VER 1. See: Verification Tests\Transmission Verification Test 3. CHECK IF DTC IS CURRENT
With the scan tool, record the Environmental Data and erase Transmission DTC's. NOTE: If the TCM detects and stores a DTC, the TCM also stores the vehicles operating conditions under which the DTC originally set and is located in scan tool under Environmental Data. Before erasing any stored DTC's, record any available data to assist in duplicating the conditions in which the DTC originally set.

Using the Environmental Data recorded earlier, test drive the vehicle while trying to duplicate the conditions in which the DTC originally set.
Did the DTC P0733-GEAR RATIO ERROR IN 3RD reset?
YES >> Repair internal transmission as necessary.
Perform NAG1 TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TEST - VER 1. See: Verification Tests\Transmission Verification Test
NO >> Go To 4

4. INTERMITTENT WIRING AND CONNECTORS
The conditions necessary to set this DTC are not present at this time.
Using the schematics as a guide, inspect the wiring and connectors specific to this circuit.
Wiggle the wiring and connectors while checking for any possible open or shorted circuits.
Check for any Service Information Tune-ups or Technical Service Bulletins that may apply.
Were there any problems found?
YES >> Repair as necessary.Perform NAG1 TRANSMISSION VERIFICATION TEST - VER 1. See: Verification Tests\Transmission Verification Test
NO >> Test Complete.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

Rpm overspeed


have the transmission checked out,

quote http://www.aa1car.com/library/2002/bf90222.htm

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts
