Q: light blinking wont shift right high rpm

asked by on

changed input speed sensor wont shift right high rpms

My car has 217000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Is the vehicle acting like the transmission is slipping? High RPMs without much power and large lack of acceleration? In this case, there may be a low transmission fluid level or the transmission assembly my be experiencing a failure. Have a certified professional, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the shifting issue in person in order to pinpoint exactly what’s causing the problem.
