What would cause a 1994 Mercury Sable with automatic transmission to need to be warmed up a lot before it will shift into higher gears?
Low transmission fluid, transmission on it's way out.
Engine revs higher on hills and on sudden bursts of accelaration, seems to rev higher before changing up, Will not back up on hills. Read More
Yes - it's rated for a much higher torque strain, for starters. Read More
manuel has a stick transmission auto is automatic transmission A manual transmission is you shift gears manually by pressing the clutch as you increase speed, and overtime you will change clutch disk and has a better mileage than automatic transmission. Automatic transmission you don't need any shifting, the car does it for you.But the price of the car is a little bit higher like a thousand more or less.And you have to check your transmission… Read More
I'm going to assume its an automatic transmission. Is the millage higher than 50,000? If so try changing the transmission fluid. Read More
One of the best automatic transmission fluids for the 90's ford products is VALVOLINE MAXLIFE DEXTRON MERCRON it is designed for the older higher mileage vehcles it has special additives to help keep the seals soft and also helps keep the valves in the tranny working smoothly Read More
What causes the gears in a Mercedes Benz A class 160 automatic gearbox to slip and not shift up to higher gears?
One of the most common causes of gears in a Mercedes Benz A class 160 automatic gearbox to slip and not shift up to higher gears is a bad transmission. If the transmission is failing, or not working properly, you won't get the gears to shift up. Read More
Remove the drain plug and drain the fluid into an approved container. Refill with automatic transmission fluid. Yes, automatic transmission fluid in a manual. Dextron III or higher. Take's roughly four quarts. Read More
Using a higher voltage reduces power losses during transmission. Read More
I have a 1996 Mercury Sable and it did the same thing. The fix was a new transmission. My mechanic noticed that the car was running higher RPMs than it should have after replacing an engine that blew a rod through the engine because of the bad transmission. Read More
What are the engine oil and automatic transmission fluid specifications and capacities for a 1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6?
Automatic transmission: Dexron-Mercon, 3 quarts. Engine oil: 10W30, 4 quarts. Given the vehicle's age and assumed high mileage, you may also want to consider a higher viscosity, such as 10W40. Read More
This changes the point at which the automatic transmission shifts. With "power" enabled the van will shift at a higher RPM. Read More
S means "Sport"in automatic transmission cars, so that engine can be run in higher revs and more power can be used. Read More
Automatic Transmission Fluid /Dexron III or higher. DO NOT use Pentosin in this model. If you do you will eventually regret it. Read More
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. Read More
You have to use it when you are driving in mountain areas where to have high speed is not a good idea. The overdrive function does allow the transmission to switch to higher gears. Read More
Ice Cube would float higher in Mercury. Read More
Transmission oil is a motor oil specifically manufactured for transmissions and differentials in cars. Compared to engine oil it is of a higher viscosity which ensures good transfer and better protects the gears. This heavy oil can create viscous drag and lead to inefficiencies in operation. Some modern automatic transmissions do not use such a heavy oil at all but lubricate with the lower viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available at pressure within the automatic… Read More
depending on if your area you can find a junk yard that has them for 500 dollars for a manual, an automatic can run higher but again your best bet is to call around Read More
there is 2 plugs on the bottom pan of the trans. With the engine running pull the plug that is higher up. Fluid should just trickle out. Read More
It changes the gear change rpm in you automatic transmission. It will rev out to higher rpm before changing into the next gear which will make your acceleration quicker and make the car more responsive but you will use a little more fuel. It doesn't actually give your engine any more horsepower as such. Read More
just because u have baught a stupid automatic car, get one with menual shifting Had similar problem several years ago. There is a sensor in the transmission that, when it fails, will not allow the transmission to shift to a higher gear. When it happened to me, I could not manually shift it to a higher gear. I took to repair shop to be fixed. Not sure if it is a diy project. Read More
There are two trannys that were put into the 1982 Z28. One was a four-speed manual transmission, the other was a 3-speed automatic transmission. The manual shift was a Saginaw Muncie (code R) and the automatic was a TH200C. If your engine is a stock LG4 you probably have the 200C, if you have the higher output LU5, you might have the Muncie. Hope this tech info has helped. Most of this information can be… Read More
sports mode, simply holds revs longer before changing to a higher gear. Read More
1.it will average between $1400 and $2100 dollars depending on who does the work. 2. Had my 1992, 3spd automatic (TH125) transmission fixed here in Pensacola FL at Bellview Transmission Inc for $400 plus tax in 2006. Might be a bit higher now. Call and ask for Bob... Read More
It all depends if it's a automatic or a manual transmission? If it's a automatic there is a pan on the bottom side of the transmission that you have to remove. There should be a filter screwed to the underneath of the transmission after the pan is removed. Now if it's a manual transmission to drain the fluid. There should be a plug close to the bottom on driver side or passenger-side. Take the plug… Read More
An ice cube would float in any type of liquid. It would float higher in mercury than water because mercury is denser. Read More
A/T - stands for Automatic Transmission. This is your trans. mode switch. Comfort Mode- It shifts quickly and smoothly. Power Mode- It revs up higher before shifting. Auto Mode-It picks power or comfort mode for you, power when you accelerate hard and comfort when you are going normally. Read More
The instance might be the purpose of a barometer, if it is, mercury has a higher density than alcohol, approximately 15 times higher. Read More
Venus and Mercury routinely reach higher temperatures than the Earth. Mercury also gets colder. Read More
Yes, as platinum has a much higher density than mercury. Read More
Gold is a higher density than mercury so it will sink if placed into a container of mercury. Read More
What is wrong if a 1986 Chevy Astro shifts into first and second but when it hits third it sounds like you are flooring it will not shift any higher?
If this is an automatic transmission, which I am assuming it is it will not work the same as a standard. Only drive it in overdrive or 1st gear. Read More
Why would an automatic transmission jerk into second gear and make a hissing noise when the gear is changing at higher speeds?
Check the mounting of the gear box, because the mounting of the gear box is like shock absorb. Read More
With an automatic transmission, there are four or five gears, each gear bigger than the last. The bigger the gear the higher the speed. But once in a while, you need power, or "torque", to tow heavy items or carry great weights up steep hills, for example. Since your automatic transmission Is not a mind reader, it switches gears from low to high regardless of what you are towing. So using "low gear" forces the… Read More
Automatic transmissions use a fluid to transfer power to the drive train, not quite as positive a power transfer as a standard transmission, most automatic transmissions don't have as many gear selections to select optimum engine rpm ranges for certain tasks, they don't automatically disengage when coming to a stop, therefore causing more wear on the braking system, and they are heavier , causing higher fuel consumption. However they are easier to operate , in… Read More
My 1989 ford mustang gt 5.0 automatic transmission sumtimes stays in first gear n neva goes to a higher gear till i stop and reverse but most times it would go from 1st to 3rd gear may i get sum help?

That type of thermometer has mercury in it, which is very heat sensitive. When used for taking a temperature, the heat from the body causes the mercury to rise. The amount the level of the mercury rises is determined by the body's temperature; the higher the temp, the higher the mercury rises. Read More
If you take two trucks with matching motors, matching rear ends, and matching transmission ratios, the autoshift or fully automatic transmission is supposed to get better mileage of the two. The difference tends to be a bit negligible, however, and the manual shift transmission allows the driver a higher degree of control. One problem with the older autoshifts (the ones with the clutch) is that the synchroniser in the transmission often goes out due to… Read More
Higher the frequency, higher the losses. Read More
One of the first clues that a person has to replace automatic transmission is that it is slipping. This happens when the engine revs higher, but the vehicle is not moving any faster. The vehicle may seem like the wheels are not connected to the engine, like the transmission is in neutral, and then it may catch suddenly, and drive under full power. Read More
I think the question might refer to the switch near the transmission gear selector. If so, it stands for Electronically Controlled Transmission. Basically it just gives you some more power. I believe that it delays the shifts until a higher RPM is reached. Of course this only relates to an automatic transmission, and it will probably decrease your miles per gallon.

My research (and experience) indicates that on higher mileage (80,000+ miles) Toyota transmissions, if the fluid has not been changed previously, the friction caused by the fine metal particles in old/dirty transmission fluid help make the transmission work. As metal parts wear down this extra friction becomes necessary to transfer power. Putting in slick new clean fluid cleans out the particles and causes the transmission to slip soon after. So you may not want to… Read More
What type of transformer is needed before the electricity from the Power Station is sent into the National Grid?
From the Generator station, the voltage is sent to a step up transformer. Transmission at higher voltages is used to over come line loss over the miles of transmission. Read More
There are 2 plugs on the side of the transmission one high and one low. Remove the higher one and if some fluid drips out or you can feel fluid right away when you stick your pinky figer in the hole it is good to go. If not then add fluid through the same hole until it runs out. Read More
How much should it cost to repair a head gasket and the intake on a 1997 GMC Sierra 57 liter 350 motor with automatic transmission and 4wd?
I was quoted around $700 to do that on a 93. Probably somewhat higher than that quote. Maybe 8 or 900 Read More
Normally, the automatic gear shifts from one 'size' to another. In a Prosmatec transmission, there is a sort of 'cone' of gears, which shifts 'progressively' from a higher to a lower gear (and vice versa). So generally, the shifting is comparitively more 'smoother'. Read More
No, mercury sinks to the bottom because its density is about 13 (!) times higher than water's is Read More
Assuming you are asking about an automatic transmission, the transmission fluid is added through the tube where the dipstick is located. Pull out the dipstick and using a funnel add a little fuid at a time, check the level often because you do not want to overfill the transmission - you want the fluid in between the marks on the dipstick. If you are asking about a manual transmission, there is a screw plug on… Read More
