If the 1997 Nissan Altima with an automatic transmission is shifting gears too early, it could be that the shift solenoid for the transmission is faulty. Both the shift solenoid and the speed sensor on the transmission should be checked.

How does autoshift work in tracker trailers?

Instead of manually shifting the gears, a synchronizer gear is installed in the transmission, and a computer takes over shifting. Early autoshifts still retained a clutch pedal; current models do not, leaving that to the computer to manage, as well. The only one which has a torque converter is the Allison TC10.

What are the first signs of transmission problems in most vehicles?

You may feel a jerk in the car when it automatically shifts from one gear to the next; or it may feel like the transmission is 'slipping' or can't catch a gear when accelerating; or it may be difficult to accelerate or drive. All of these are early signs of transmission problems. Transmission problems can be very costly and its worth your time and money to do the recommended maintenance. The first signs of trouble are rough shifting and changing shift points and speeds. You may also have a transmission light for over heating transmission fluid. Take these warning signs seriously.

What cause of early shifting of automatic transmission?

A sensor has failed, and is reporting the wrong value to the transmission controller. Old transmissions: Probably the vacuum modulator or throttle position sensor. Also check the fluid level. New Transmissions: Output speed sensor, turbine speed sensor, throttle-position sensor, fluid pressure sensor, and sensors on the engine.

Loosen the clamp bolts on the cable. If it is shifting down to a lower gear when the throttle is at max it is all right. If it is shifting down too early, lengthen the cable adjustment. If it is shifting down too late or not at all shorten the cable adjustment.
