I am new to automatic cars and I have bought an automatic car about 3-4 years ago.
I am noticing while I am driving that when I reach a certain speed such as 60kph or 70kph the car takes a long time to shift for a new gear. I let go of the gas paddle and press the paddle again in order to try to change gears but it doesn't. After some time doing this or instead of doing this I keep on pressing the gas paddle, FINALLY the gears will change.
Does this mean that the automatic gears are wearing-out or its normal?
ThanksHow do you know when automatic gears wear-out?
What year make model and eng.size ect as well i would ask have you cked or have someone ck the tranz fluid ??? best do that quick or your tranz will go south done gotta take care of that car and when you park it look 4 leaksHow do you know when automatic gears wear-out?
At that speed the problem is in the lock up torque converter or it's solenoid. This final up shift should be into overdrive, and is controlled by a lock up torque converter solenoid. On some vehicles this is prone to go bad do to a polarity problem, and others are prone to sticking.
If it were my car, I would add a bottle of Lucas trans. additive. It will help remove the sludge that builds up around this electro-magnetic solenoid.
Hope this helps fix your problem. Christopher
