Check the fluid level, if that's not it, have the fluid and filter changed.

What are the symptoms of automatic transmission failure?

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan SE, While I am driving things are alright, but when slowing down to a stop the transmission downshift late. What causes thisand is there anything I should be concerned about. Recently, I put some more transmission fluid in . could I have overfilled it?This should help:Complete automatic transmission failure is obvious because the car will not move at all when shifted into forward or reverse. Usually the symptoms of impending automatic transmission failure are not quite as dramatic, and can be inspected by a mechanic to determine if the transmission needs replacing or if there is any chance the problem can be repaired.Delayed ShiftingOne common symptom of automatic transmission problems is delayed shifting when the vehicle is cold, particularly for reverse or first gear. Loss of One GearSometimes one gear will go out entirely while the others still function. If fourth or reverse gear fails, for instance, the vehicle at least can be driven to a shop. Unusual Shifting SpeedsShifting may take place at unusual speeds, earlier or later than it should. The speed where shifting takes place also may keep changing. Noise and JerkingAny noise while shifting is a symptom of automatic transmission failure, and so is rough, jerky shifting. Odd MovementIf the vehicle tries to move while in park or neutral, it most likely has automatic transmission failure. Shift Lever IssuesIf the shift lever is difficult to move, this indicates transmission problems as well.

Can you put a transmission from a 1992 Chevy Corsica into a 1995 Chevy Beretta?

Only the 5-speeds. You can't swap automatics without running into problems, and you can't swap an automatic for a 5-speed without modifying (and it will still throw an engine code afterward). A 1992 Corsica had a 3T40 automatic, and the 1995 Beretta had a 4T60E automatic. Your best bet is to swap in another 4T60E. It came in a lot of GM vehicles. Go to and enter "1995 Chevy Beretta automatic transmission" in the search for a list compatible transmissions and prices in your area.

RPMs in a cadillac go up and down at high speed?

Your car most likely has an automatic transmission. If you're noticing the rpms going up and down it is because your automatic transmission is using its torque converter. it uses the torque converter to get the transmission up to speed with the engine and then it locks but when the torque gets to be too much for the engine it unlocks and speeds back up again.

Why would your car feel like it shifting gears going down the high way but not in low speeds like in town?

Automatic transmission shifts can be related to fluid temperature and some vehicles also have sport style settings that can change shift quality. If the shifting is irregular and causing unusually high engine speeds this could be a symptom of transmission gear slippage. Gear slippage can result in transmission damage, and should be checked as soon as possible. Automatic transmissions are complex systems, and their overhaul/replacement can be very expensive repairs.
