My "2000" Hyundai tiburon wont shift when up to temp

This is a repost i was wrong about the year its a "2000" not a "2001".I was driving along and it tried to shift into over drive. and it blew my exhaust pipe off the catalytic converter. which i fixed, but just after I realized it wont shift into over drive unless its cold. while driving it tries to shift but it just jerks the car and it stays in 3rd. I haven't done anything because i believe its a transmission issue, but I'm not to sure.i have been told that it could just need a band adjustment. please help me

The engine is not producing the power that the transmission expects, so it shifts like crazy. You might have been looking the wrong way all along. So make sure the engine works well.

Have the codes check and repost. this is an intermittant and is probably some thing simple. Autoparts stores check the codes for free. just don't buy anything untill you repost. they people at the stores will sell you the part when they really don't know what the problem is. ie... you could have an 02 code, so they sell you the sensor, when the real problem was a vacuum leak.

First doublecheck your transmission fluid level. Its the red handled dipstick near the back of the motor. You check trans fluid level WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING. If that is ok, you might be getting towards the end of that trannys life. My mother had a bonninville, for the last 2 years we had to drop it down to 1st (the 1 on the gear shift) then into drive. This worked for a couple years before it finally blew out. Try going from 1st then into "D" and make sure it shifts, You can always shift it manually from 1st to 2nd to 3rd to drive if needed. Aint gunna hurt anything, just dont go over 3-4 on you tachometer. You dont wanna redline it.

95 Lumina Trans doesn't shift properly

I;m not trying to be smart here, but if you been driving it this way for 2 years why do you want to know whats wrong with it now, i think that would have been something you would have been checking out when it first showed up 2 years ago. Just drive it the way it is chanses are it not going to get any worse at least before its life span is over.
