GEN 2 3.8 Auto trans 28k
On my first gear to second gear shift change, It wants to stay in first and keep the rpms going higher without changing. I actrullly got it to go to like 5200 tonight driving home. So ive delt with it and shifted manually. 1 - D - OD. And its worked driving normally but when driving like i normally do going from first to D the damn rpm goes to like 6500 and i dont think thats good for my trans mission.

Have the codes pulled first chance. These trannys are all electronic, so they are fairly self diegnostic.

If "manual" shifting works normally, then I would suspect a problem with the shifter cable or the transmission range sensor (MLPS) which monitors the shifter position. The PCM may think you have it in 1st gear, but decide to shift on its own when the RPM gets too high.

Do you have codes? Is the MIL illuminated?

So, ABS, you joined in 2003, and waited until today to post your first post? :lol: No way I could do that.

Today is the first anniversary of this thread. I think that calls for cold ones.
