1994 Ford Escort, auto trans, 83,000 mi, randomly won't shift from 1st to 2nd, randomly loses power at hwy speeds


It could be an internal problem with a pump, or it could be it needs to be serviced really bad. Most 'oil change' places can also do transmission services... I'd try that first, before paying a big repair bill to a shop. good luck.

1993 chevy 4x4 auto trans shifts hard 1st to 2nd


check fluid level AND condition...should a red color...if its discolored, in any way, flush it and change the filter too...then perhaps there is a band that is out of adjustment allowing the flare up, and it suddenly grabs getting the hard shift....or else trans is worn out....check the fluid

1997 chey pu auto trans 1st and 2nd shift good drive doesn't shift until rpm's are 3500-4000 rpm


Do you get a check-engine light, or does the transmission O/D light flash? Many times, this is due to a speed sensor on the transmission. When the sensor goes, the transmission has to do default shift timing and it will shift very late. Usually, this will set a code in the onboard computer.

I have a E36 328i *** import. When cold the shift from 1st to 2nd is extreamly rough. After a few km's (possibly when the trans warms up) the shifting is perfect. The problem only occurs between 1st &...


I had the same problem with my car it is not a major problem your car probably has high mileage, You can replace your torque converter replaced but that will be expensive, The price to fix it completely outweigh's the problem.

What I suggest and works for me is while the trans is still cold just anticipate the shift from 1st to 2nd and just before the change occurs eas of the accelerator and then when the car has changed from 1st to 2nd just accelerate again.

Honda accord exr 1987 automatic trans.


It's hard to understand when you say it feels like a manual shift. Noise? Feel? I do know that the 87 auto trans does have a weak 1st to 2nd shift drum (as explained to me by my mechanic) that makes a grinding, elongated shift under heavy acceleration when it starts to wear. Under normal acceleration, 1st to 2nd shifts were normal (crisp, immediate). Since that day 8 years ago, I've avoided starting off to quickly, and so far have saved myself a tranny overhaul.
