im guessing you have a 700r4 its is time to get a rebuild but for your answer it could be a valve body problem or possibly the 3rd and 4th clutches and sprags are bad

A "speed" sensor can affect the shifting of the trans.

User Avatar

The speedometer signal comes from the ABS sensor on top of the rear axle. The trans also has speed sensors on it for trans shifting.

check pig tail at speedsensor at rear at trans case or trans. or if that fails change vehicle speed sensor

User Avatar

Possibly depending on the car and trans type, vehicle speed can be a major component in shifting strategy.

MORE THEN LIKELY IT IS THE SPEED SENSOR ON THE TRANS I HAD A SIMILER PROB ON MY TRUCK

I have an 86 and it has the A200R4 trans. If you have an overdrive position on your shifting column then that is what you have, if you only have a 3 speed then you probably have a turbo 350.

There were three trans mission options. four speed five speed and 10 speed power shift with 2 reverse.

Yes, however, the trans, and computer will have to come with it....

I'm having the same problem with my trans. I've read online that these trans have a lot of problems with the input and output speed sensors.

According to my Alldata system maintenance charts, the 85 Corvette OD manual trans uses Dexron IIE automatic trans fluid. HTH

User Avatar

That depends on what speed sensor you are looking for. There are Abs sensors on the front and rear that feed the speedometer, and there are input and output sensors on the trans that are used for shifting.

On a 5-speed I'm pretty sure it is right next to where the shift tower gets bolted to the trans. It is a little ball that rides on the shifting rail. Should be pretty much the only sensor that is on the top center section of the trans.

User Avatar

Delayed shifting is because the transmission fluid is not warm enough to move through the internals of the transmission. You may need a transmission service,,,,,fluid change, new filter, etc. Transmission Fluid degrades with age.

Manual 3 speed trans, 85 mph.Manual 4 speed trans, 96 mph. Semi automatic 3 speed trans, 85 mph. Automatic 4 speed trans, 93 mph.

From the year 1953 to the year 1962, after that it was a trans axle.

User Avatar

There are sensors inside the trans, outside the trans, and on the engine that will all affect shifting.

Bad powertrain mount or worn CV joint or high idle speed or torque converter problem.
