My 85 Topaz auto is doing the same thing...in a 'phone diagnostic
discussion w/a transmission specialist, he suggested the most
likely culprit to be a governor either on or in the tranny, which
operates by hydraulic pressure to change gears at certain speeds
and RPMs. Apparently I'll have to have it repaired. However, I'm
going to change the fluid first, to see if that has any effect. As of
this date, 3-8-'10, the repair estimate is in the $300 ballpark.
it depends on whether your car is automatic or manual shift.
a bad radiator -automatic portion of radiator not cooling off transmission
Check the fuses, if fuses are okay, it is probably the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) or wiring to it at fault.
Low transmission fluid, transmission on it's way out.
You can't shift gears on an automatic transmission because, as it is called, it's automatic! You don't need to shift, it does it for you. == == Maybe the question should be "Why is my automatic transmission not shifting through gears for me as it should?" Could it be a fairly simlpe fix or am I losing my transmission? Yeah Dopey!
It's below the gear selector lock button on the automatic transmission cosole shift
It can come with either one. But the standard is an automatic transmission.
An automatic transmission modulator is the device that decides when your vehicle should shift. It basically controls and regulates pressure for smooth operation of the automatic transmission.
An automatic transmission shift valve is like a swing. It is moves back and forth with the use of pressure. That is how gears are changed.
The switching is done within the transmission by internal pressure. YOu may just be low on fluid. I have had this happen to my 93 topaz three times (plus a fourth that happened before I got the car). Every time it happened the fluid level was full. The tranny used (ATX) on the topaz has a governor on it. If the governor is not set right it will not shift. I have had to have the governor gear replaced Dec. 2005 because of this. Once you have one problem with the transmission you may have problems the rest of the car's life. I am now on my 4th transmission.
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission.
Check your Automatic Transmission fluid level
It means that you do not have stick shift in your car, your car shifts gears for you, you don't have to do it, so basically if you don't have a stick shift car you have an automatic transmission car.
Is this a standard transmission, or an automatic? automatic
If you shift manually, you have a manual transmission. If your car shifts for you, you have an automatic.
A seized up transmission can cause a Volkswagen Golf with an automatic transmission to not shift and racing RMPs after second. A worn gear can also prevent shifting.
An automatic transmission is a type of car transmission that shifts gears on its own. Therefore, cars with automatic transmissions will not have a clutch pedal and will have a selector lever as opposed to a shift knob.
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission, and require disassembly of the transmission to replace.
There are several things that can cause your Honda Accord station wagon automatic transmission not to shift down. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.

An automatic transmission can lock in a Honda for several reasons. The most common problem is with the shift solenoids. These parts allow the transmission to shift and when one is malfunctioning the gearbox may not go into gear.
The shift linkage on your Chevrolet Blazer automatic transmission will go from the shifting handle to the right hand side of the transmission. The shifting linkage is actually a shifting cable.
Transmission shift linkage installed incorrectly or out of adjustment.
FAT refers to Floor Automatic Transmission while AT means Automatic transmission in case where shift lever is installed at the steering column
