Assuming there isn't transmission damage, you probably have a kickdown cable. It's a cable that gets pulled on when you press the gas. It takes into account how hard your gas pedal is down, and delays shifting the closer you are to WOT. (wide open throttle) Perhaps it is a little too tight. Becareful though - if it's not the problem and you move the kickdown cable, you can damage the tranny if you make it shift too hard. So make sure you scribe a mark or something before you even touch it so you know where it was originally. There will likely be a bracket of sorts that allows minor adjustment.

Automatic Transmission 1987 topaz?

and the question is?

1994 mercury topaz with automatic transmission does not shift out of first gear rpm's go up but no tranny response help is there a sensor or switch that may be faulty and where is it?

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.

the first step that should be taken is to have the transmission serviced, this should include removing transmission pan, draining fluid, removing and replacing filter and pan gasket. then if the problem persists it would be best to have the vehicles computer scanned to see if any problems are present with the transmission. usually the computer will store fault codes which will help pinpoint the problem.

How do you get a 1987 Mercury Topaz automatic transmission to shift into high gear?

My 85 Topaz auto is doing the same 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.
