Your transmission has a vacumn modulator on the side it requires vacumn from the engine to shift make sure the vacumn hose from the trans to the engine is plugged on and working, if that is correct then step 2 is the governer which would require a tranny shop to check, but id bet on the vacumn line give it a try! good luck and thankx billy

I have a 1994 caprice ex police lt1 4l60e. things were fine. for about 2 months.then getting on freeway picking up speed and trans acted like it did not want to up shift. it was already in 2nd. got home,...


hi, it may be the transmission oil, transmission oil LEVEL or and transmission filter.
first check transmission level by starting the engine (ticking over) go through ALL GEARS and check level. this level will (drop from standing idle). NOT ENOUGH FLUID
if the FILTER is partially blocked then not enough fluid reaching the chambers. NOT ENOUGH FLUID.
the fluid may be full of deposits. transmission fluid needs REPLACING and or FILTER.
also check if leaking transmission fluid.
check if lever out of range (worn, can't get to position before end of gear lever travel).
the brake bands may be WORN, or needs adjusting
the KICK-DOWN seams to work. check link-ergs for wear and movement.
the speedo seams to have a BAD CONNECTION (closed circuit connected then open circuit). loose connector. gerry

My 1994 Subaru Legacy Touring (Turbo) Wagon is not shifting properly when taking off. It does not shift until 3500 rpm at 20 mph. The initial shift should be around 2000 rpm. All other gears seem...


Hi,
The 1st>>2nd shift on the Subaru 4EAT automatic transmission can be more abrupt, but 3500 is too high.
Is there any delay when shifting from Park to Drive?
Does the Power light flash on startup? If it does, you can pull the codes by following these instructions.

This trans has 'bands' that can be adjusted. I'm not 100% sure they affect the 1st>2nd gear shift, but maybe they need adjusted.

Take a look @ ultimatesubaru.org/forum and http://bbs.legacycentral.org. 2 sites dedicated to Subarus.

Good luck,
Td

Transmission wont shift after 40 mph sometimes it works find but when you slow down to 40mph it **** and the rpm stay up


I had the same problem, so I added "Trans X" from the auto store, and after a few miles the trans started shifting. Seems gunk get into the shifting mechanism. Also a trans service could be the problem. Should have a trans service every 30k. Keeps trans clean. Try it , it worked for me

My car has a transmission problem


Sounds like a tranny valve body problem.There's a down shift cable attatched to the throttle linkage (where the accelerater cable is).That cable may not be adjusted right.However if you dissconnect the cable from the throttle linkage try to pull the cable out to where it stops(it'll retract by itself).Then let it snap back.(repeat a couple times).This may unstick a vavle in the valve body

96 caprice classic not shifing from 2nd to 3rd


check transmission fluid level first if it is full or if it is milky looking or smell cooked change the fluid and filter because the screen in the filter maybe plugged and not allowing the fluid to go to the troque converter
