Trans Skipping 2nd

Recommended Posts

I think my trans is skiping 2nd gear, it only seems to do it when I am just litely on the throttle. Is it the nut behind the wheel or what. :ahhh:

How many rpms are you at when it shifts?

--- Update to the previous post...

For example 2500 rpms in 1st would equate to just under 1000 in 3rd with the converter locked, 2nd would be 1500 unlocked.

I will have to check my rpm's. But it's no where near 2000 when it shifts the way it does. I can be in town lite on the gas and when it shifts I can feel it lug for a second then it down shifts and then up shift on thru the gears. I had a old pontaic 428 with a 400 turbo with a shift kit and it would do that when you just barely had the throttle cracked, it would up shift like it skiped 2nd and then down shift back to 2nd. This reminds me of the same thing.I am kinda worried about the trans due to when I changed filter it was kinda dark looking, but not burned. When a trans is burned it will smell like a house fire, right?

No gauges yet. Trans pan was spotless, magnet had small amount of material on it- looked normal. The truck had 37k on it when I changed it. I dont think it was ever changed. I have a oil sample ordered and we will see what they say.
