SOURCE: transmission will not upshift between 3rd and 4th gear

It sounds like the shifter pawl might not be centered. This is located behind the clutch basket and is a pretty big job to get to, easy adjustment just a pain to get to. You will need a manuel to do it yourself.

SOURCE: revtech 5 speed tranny. Transmision some times

Sounds more like a shifter pawl problem. I'm not familiar with the RevTech tranny but it should be very similar to the original H-D tranny. The shifter pawl has to be adjusted so that it's got equal travel in both directions. If you're trying to adjust it. Put the tranny in neutral. Now lift the shifter lever until you feel the pawl engage the pin in the shifter drum. Then go back to the middle of the movement range and depress the shift lever until you feel the pawl contact the other pin. The lever should move about the same distance in each direction. If not, the shifter pawl needs to be adjusted. On some bikes, it take some special tools to be able to get to the adjuster. The adjuster is on the left side just in front of the lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft sticking out of the transmission.

Transmission problem with a 2007 Mazda cx7


This indicates a problem in the transmission control module as it is not activating the solenoids/servos and consequently the sensors that read turbine speed and output shaft speed are not reading the correct difference of the two units . Have this checked out at an accredited auto transmission shop.

Lack of power in 5th and 6th gear at cruising speed, have to downshift and go through gears to obtain higher speed


4th and 5th gears are for use over 45 and 55mph respectively as they are both Overdrive Gears.

If you are above these speeds in these gears when the issue occurs I would suspect Tune-up issues, fuel/air delivery problems, or a drastic change in tire/ wheel size on the vehicle.

Last tune up was?
Air Filter?
Fuel filter?
Checked fuel pressure and volume?

How to stop the transmission noise in 5th gear on a 2007 HD Ultra Classic?


The 5th gear noise with the 6 speed is legendary!

1st and 5th are straight cut gears. 2nd,3rd,4th, and 6th are helical cut gears. Straight cut are stronger so Harley put them in the most popular gears.

Some people swear that either Mobil Syn 75/90 or Redline Shockproof 85/140 helps.

Baker transmissions make a F6F kit that has a helical cut gear, and a thicker trapdoor to handle the increased side loading because of it, but it ain't cheap!

The ranger has a common problem with lunging or jerking when in 4th or 5th gear going uphill or accelerating. I have replaced all firing components, fuel components, timing belt, rear end is fine. Does...


I am assuming your transmission is a 5speed manual. What is the tachometer reading when you experience this jerking in 5th gear? It sounds like the engine is being lugged. If you are trying to pull a hill or accelerate in 5th gear at less than 40 or 45mph, you need to downshift to a lower gear.

1992 Mercedes 500 sel trany sliping


Probably a modulator, however check that the "bowden" cable is properly adjusted (this is the cable that does the "kickdown" and also goes to a vacum /valve.It is simple to adjust, basically with the engine turned OFF, check that the 2 pointers (like arrows) align, (one is on the cable). Being a merc it pays to have the tranny properly serviced, and its filter changed at least every 2 years though merc says 60,000k's. And the one thing that will kill a merc transmission is the WRONG oil, it has to be according to the spec sheet which is in your user manual.(lots of tranny shops use anything!)
Also check the dipstick for discolouration/and or burnt smell.

Transmission defects in downshift


With any manual transmission you shouldnt just go from 6th to 4th bc it is bad for the transmission, if i am in 5th gear and i want to go into 3rd i always go from 5th to 4th to 3rd as a preventative maintenance. If you have a defected transmission you should be able to get it warranted by the bmw dealership you bought if from though.
