Have it scan tested, possible input/output sensor(s). Speedometer working like it should?
COMMENT by GLITTER2362 on September 26, 2013
YES WORKS FINE BUT NO CHK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON OR ANYTHING JUST WON'T SHIFT AFTER ABOUT 5 MILES AND THE RPM KEEP GOING UP
COMMENT by pushrod on September 26, 2013
Light may not be on but a scanner can still monitor the trans. to see what the trouble may be. Can't guess at it, needs hands on testing.
