Transmission is not shifting to OD. I was reading a post earlier about "Gas MPG" and someone stated that at 60 MPH the RPM's should be at 1500. Mine RPM's are at [email protected] 60 MPH.
I am not getting good gas mileage. I just got this car and did oil change (5-30W full Synthetic) and changed the plugs and wires. New air filter...
2002 and only has 72,800 miles on it.


I am going to try a trans fluid and filter change this weekend.

Will that do the trick or do I need to think about a rebuilt transmission???


A friend of mine suggested trying Lucas Trans Fix 1st???


Thanks, Jerry

There are no codes. There is an exhaust leak of some kind but it's not throwing any codes. Could this be the reason why it's not shifting properly into overdrive?

2000 rpm at 60 mph would be normal for G-4.

After fluid and filter change, (24oz Lucas trans fix) it seems to be shifting a lot better...
Yes 2000 RPM at 60 MPH. So I suppose all is well with the transmission.
Now For the exhaust system... Taking it to a shop today to get an estimate...
Thanks for the help, Jerry :)
