You don't say what kind of car you have and some don't shift at higher speeds. Adjust the throtle cable and that should help if possible,.

Shift solenoids are found on the transmission of the 1998 Honda Passport. The shift solenoids allow for smooth operation of the transmission when passing through the gears.

Your car might kick when you shift from park to drive if your transmission fluid is low or very dirty. You might also have worn gears in the transmission.

A transmission shift solenoid is found inside the transmission housing. Replacing the unit depends on the vehicle, some allow access underneath the car while others the solenoids can be reach from above the transmission.

Your transmission might automatically shift out of overdrive while driving on the interstate because of low transmission fluid. This issue might also occur because of a bad transmission sensor or overdrive sensor.

you might need a new one soon. but first check your transmission fluid.

Might be a problem with the brake/transmission interlock switch

The signs of a bad transmission in a Mazda might include hard shifting or a refusal to shift into certain gears. A revving of the motor during the shift can also be a sign of a bad transmission.

Your '01 Lincoln Town car might not shift gears because it is low on transmission fluid or because the transmission is damaged.

I think you are referring to a shift solenoid on a car. If so, this sends signals to the transmission computer to tell it when to shift gears either higher or lower depending on demand such as going uphill, passing or reaching cruise speed.

there is no fuse that makes the transmission shift the transmission shifts on cylinoids and rpms

A 2007 Chrysler Sebring that will not shift out of Park will probably need a shift solenoid replaced. This is inside the transmission and the transmission might have to be taken out of the vehicle to be fixed.

One of the reasons a transmission might not shift into overdrive could be a problem with the belt drive inside the transmission. Belt drives can be stretched over time. Another reason could be that the transmission fluid is low or very old or the filter is clogged.

transmission down shift after fuild change

User Avatar

Usually that's the first sign of a transmission going bad.Overdrive sometimes goes out first.Also it could be a bad transmission sensor.A diagnostic check should tell you so.The sensors are cheap and easy to install. In older GM cars with the TH350 tranny, the "kickdown" cable could also be broken or not adjusted properly.

A transmission that is not engaging fully when in drive might need a new shift solenoid. There is also a chance that a band is stretched or broken inside the transmission.

The Chevrolet Lumina shift solenoid can be found on the top of the transmission. The shift solenoid will be near the front of the transmission.

If your 1997 Chevy diesel will not shift into overdrive, you might have an issue with a transmission sensor. Some of these vehicles have several sensors that must engage in order to shift.

User Avatar

your transmission could be shot. if it will not shift at all, then you will need a new one.

User Avatar

The transmission allows you to shift gears.

User Avatar

The transmission shift solenoids are inside the transmission on the valve body.

User Avatar

well you might need to add more transmission fluid you might even have to drain your intire transmission of the fluid it has now and put more in the transmission.

User Avatar

check your transmission control relay.. it might be stuck..

User Avatar

I would suspect that the car has a problem with either the shift cable, or perhaps the cable has popped off of the shift linkage on the transmission. If not one of those then it might be a problem with a stuck or broken mechanism inside the transmission.

Overdrive might not work on a 1992 Dakota because there is a problem with the transmission. The shift solenoid or a belt is not functioning properly inside the transmission.
