Intermittently my saturn L200 will shift very late from 1st into second. Sometimes you have to take your foot off the gas for a second then it shifts. I replaced the output shaft sensor had the transmission serviced(fluid, pan, gasket). The car does not show any engine codes. The trans seems to shift properly no slipping just real late. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

It may be a govenor sticking or a valve inside the trans, On a problem like this its' better to see a trans guy so he can do other checks with scanner like manually shift it through scanner.

Just to add to this on have a exhaust shop do a back pressure test I have seen cats starting to clog up cause that to happen. Have seen it many times on those cars.
