possibly why transmission does not shiftI have a 94 Mazda 929 with the v6 3 liter twin cam,automatic transmission. My problem was because all three of the catalytic converters were stopped up, i simply had them removed, due to tremeendous price difference, and the problem cleared up. However i had 1st and 2nd gear only. If this problem persists,it is possible it could be transmission filter or the governer,which is generally located just inside the transmission pan i think...
