TRANSMISSION TROUBLE

2003 Ford Ranger • 129,000 miles

I noticed today when I was passing someone that when I floor it my rpms will goto about 5500 and then try to shift but wont and like kick really hard and drop down to 4000 rps then go up to 6000 and then shift after a second could you tell me what would need to be done about this.

Check trans fluid then have a trans guy scan it for codes. It may be something like a broken throttle cable to trans which they will have.

Without going into great detail but yes is the answer. Have a trans guy look at it.
