If you fluid it to low it could cause it. Check it while the car is warm to get the best reading. ** Already checked the fluid, it's fine. I'm wondering about the torque converter because it seems to only do it at the bottom end of a gear, almost like it's having trouble deciding what gear to be in and the engine RPM's jump back and forth about 250-500rpm while it's doing it.
your transmission is most likely bad if it an automatic but if it a manual then your clutch could be bad
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!
Automatic transmission fluid would likely cause a standard transmission to overheat and wear the gears at a high rate.
could it be low fluid
if it is automatic the transmission could be slipping if manual the throttle could be sticking
There are multiple things that could cause this problem, but if everything else seems to work fine, a good place to check would be the transmission and the shifter. Gears in the transmission could be blown and may not catch when you try to shift.
You have to shift gears in all of them, so you'd call them "manual," but in 1969 you could get an "autostick" transmission that had an automatic clutch connected to a manual transmission.
yes it would cause the gears to slip more or less
The "lockup torque converter" could be engaging too soon. Take it to a transmission shop to have it diagnosed.
Low transmission fluid, transmission on it's way out.
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.
i think the energy (fuel) is more consumed in automatic shifting of gears whereas the same is done manually.. this could only be the reason..
When driving a car with an automatic transmission up a steep hill it is not necessary to shift gears. The car will do that on its own when necessary.
Could possibly be shifting gears sporadically or your driving on hilly terrain.
Did you use the right transmission fluid or did you forget to maintain your transmission otherwise, your gears are broken and needed to be replaced.. chances are you need a new transmission.
An automatic transmission is a mechanical transmission which shifts gears automatically in response to speed and/or load rather than requiring someone to do so manually.
There are many benefits of owning a car with automatic transmission. These benefits would include the automatic shifting of gears as the vehicle moves.
The mechanism of the tiptronic gear transmission is rotation. The tiptronic gears are usually an automatic transmission that allows the driver to control the gears like it is done in a manual transmission.
As many as the purchasing agent ordered it with. It could have an Allison automatic with five or six gears, it could have an Eaton-Fuller manual or automatic with 9, 10, 13, or 18 gears, it could have a ZF Meritor automatic with 12 gears.
Automatic Dodge Neons had a 3-speed automatic transmission.
Auto? Low or dirty transmission fluid? Plugged filter? Bad transmission pump? When my husband's car wouldn't shift (it was an automatic) it was his crankshaft sensor. It ran fine after that.
If the 1997 Nissan Altima with an automatic transmission is shifting gears too early, it could be that the shift solenoid for the transmission is faulty. Both the shift solenoid and the speed sensor on the transmission should be checked.
My daughters 1997 Saturn SC2 coupe automatic transmission has no reverse? what would cause this?? and how can i fix it without replacing the transmission.
If the gears are slipping on a 1995 Honda Civic then the transmission is worn. The transmission will either soon need to be replaced or repaired.
If this is an automatic transmission, more than likely the transmission is on it's way to the junkyard. Usually failing transmissions lose reverse first, then the higher forward gears - last will be the lowest forward gears.
