My shifting is generally not the greatest and I feel every gear as it makes a little bit of a clunk, but lately I've been having trouble getting my car to shift up once I reach about 40mph. Applying more pressure to the accelerator makes the car drive faster still, but instead of shifting the rpms just continue to rise, easily to over 3k if I were to try to get to say 60mph. This has happened a few times before and shifting into neutral and back into drive has been working. Today it did not. Neither did stopping and going into Park, then Neutral, then D. I tried it 2 times (2 stop lights) and still couldn't shift up.
I got this car used and the transmission rebuilt and installed. Would the ATF have been replaced when the trans was put back in? Are there possible causes that could be fixed without removing or replacing the whole transmission? Any advice or checks to do would be helpful.
have the same problem?
