Do a transmission fluid and filter change,sound like transmission is slipping not getting enough fluid to go in overdrive.do little tune up,have ignition timing checked and idle speed have throttle cable adjusted could be out of adjustment.if you see check engine light flashing problem could be in the tps sensor.

This sounds like a slipping transmission , check the fluid level first and make sure its full, if its full then you have ****** problems and may need to have ****** rebuild done,

Another thing is to make sure the trans passing gear cable is connected at the throttle where the gas cable is.

SOURCE: 2002 nissan altima p0507 idle problem

I had the same problem before. after using the scanner i got a code number P0507. "Idle Air Control", New 2002 and up Nissan models like my Altima don't have an idle valve or sensor like older models to be replace. Here's the solution " Replace your "Throttle Chamber" the idle sensor is build in it, there is no other way to fix this problem. the throttle chamber is about $175.00 at your Nissan Dealer. The need your core or you will need to pay extra money. No need for expensive mechanic shop, you could do this your self. the throttle chamber is so easy to remove, four screws holds it together. I will take you about ten to twenty minutes to replace it. Please trust me and you will save big bucks!!!!!

well Im sure theres a ton of miles on it-do u perform reg maint like checkin fluid level-u may need the throttle cable ajusted that hooks to trans-band n clutch could be out of measure too--trans hydra-valve system could be worn--see all these things effect the way the fluid makes the gears move--a pressure test can confirm an aging trans

2010 Rogue awd hangs in 1st gear sometimes now going down the road rpms climb to5-6 thousand and the car is not going any faster let off and it pulls normal.


hmm sounds like the trans needs a bit of work on done to it as this isnt normal for any trans to hang in first gear like that it seems like as if its having issues shifting in a timely manner due to low oil or pressure plates sticking inside the trans

Jeep sluggish between 15-18 rpms during shifting from gear to gear. what is the problem


i cant get that slang, DIff , gears, clutch to jibe. 1990 wrangler YJ
what does DONE mean.?
front or rear diff axle new, new transmission? what?
1500 to 1800 rpm 15 is engine stalled, or rpm of oil tanker ship.

got a MANUAL stick or automatic slush pump gear box?
but is no way to answer. you.
its a hydromatic A/T. right>? AUTO?
if yes,it has.
no electronics then. so clean AFT/ levels per operators guide not guessing? hot?
stall test pass (ask)
line pressure tests pass
kick down cable not stuck
or if M/t do say so, mine is, 5 owned..

but we only have one word here, sluggish to work with,
so that can be :
1: engine weak? (low rpms in all gears, and low power)
2: Trans slips (or flares) High rpm and low power (slip)

which is it?, the rpm in each gear answers that.
the FSM shows the range of rpm for each gear. ever seen a real FSM book? factory service manual.

2005 Hyundai Accent high RPMs: Recently purchased a 2005 Hyundai Accent. Took it out on the highway and noticed that at 100 to 110 km\h it runs at about 3000 rpm while in the 5th gear. It's not...


2,500 to 3,000 on a 12 yr old car. Newer vehicles with 6-9 speed auto transmissions sometimes run as low as 2,200. But your gearing is your gearing. Can't change that now.

Can a 86 toyota tercel wagon 4wd handle 235x60x14 tires with a 1.5 engine?


Rather than going to taller 13" tires, I highly recommend going to lower profile 14" tires and allow wheels. Taller 13" tires would make the handling really squishy and soft. The stiffer tires will improve handling, and the lighterweight wheels could improve economy slightly, espcially with some quality road tires (no aggressive tread snow tires, that will drop economy).


I also support the 14" wheels w/ 185/60 tires. but, if you really want to try bigger tires to keep hwy RPMs down, i would try 15" wheels with lower profile tires. that way you don't sacrifice handling for hwy RPMs. i used to run 185/80R13 and just got a slight bit of rub on full steering lock so i just looked at a comparable 15" tire--looks like 195/60R15 would be pretty close.

The only other thing i would suggest is swapping the trans and diffs with the old 3.73 final gear ratio trans/diffs of the '83/'84s. i drove one for a day and the RPMs at hwy speeds were around 2500-2600. some folks find these old transmissions sluggish on acceleration but i honestly didn't even notice a difference. i rarely drive fast though. anyway, i don't think i would do it because what with your trans having such low miles on it, it seems like it would be a waste to swap it out. if you can do it relatively easily, it might be worth it as an experiment i suppose.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1990 f150 automatic with overdrive shifts only at high rpms


Kinda sounds like it works when fluid is thick and not after it warms up. If it has been awhile since trans fluid and filter were changed it is the most simple thing to change. The torque converter is a big pump, it may be going and not providing enough pressure. This could be checked on most transmissions by a shop expert. Sometimes pressure can be adjusted externally.
