It is most likely the governor gear. The same thing happened on my 94 sentra. Cost to repair was $175 including new fluid and cleaned filter. Three shops said the trans was shot and wanted $2000 plus to repair. A little research and an honest or competent shop and it ran like new. Its been fine for two years. This gear is used on many models and often fails about 100,000 to 130,000 miles. It is accessible from ouside the trans it doesn't need to be pulled.

Should you feel the gear change from second to first when stopping?

If you can feel the gear change from second to first when stopping you may need transmission fluids. The transmission could be slipping or going out also. Take the vehicle to a mechanic so that they can see what the problem is.

Your clutch is slipping.

My 95 Mazda 929 feels like the tranny it vibrates a lot whenever going like 40 when the gas is let offAnd when accelerating to the floor it slips really badBut when slowly hit the floor goes fine.?

If it's slipping, it's most likely a slipping clutch problem. If it's an automatic, you're talking about a complete transmission rebuild. If it's a manual shift you're talking about a new clutch plate, pressure plate and throwout bearing and you'll need to have the flywheel resurfaced. The vibration could be several problems, but you had better take care of the slipping problem first, because once a transmission starts slipping, it doesn't last long. Clutch surfaces in an automatic aren't very thick and they don't last long once they start slipping.

1993 Nissan Sentra autmatic transmission?

I have a 1993 Nissan Sentra. It jerks in first gear. While changing to 2 - 4, it runs very smoothly.

Your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire automatic trans seems to hesitate before shifting into first It will rev then catch the gear All other gears seem to work fine What might this mean?

I'd check the transmission fluid level first and then for a slipping band inside the transmission.

Why does truck rev up then bang and speed up?

One thing that can cause this is a slipping automatic transmission. The clutches do not engage at first letting the engine run free, then they engage suddenly producing a slam or jerk. This will quickly destroy a transmission.
