My car has 250000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The shift down linkage should first be checked at the throttle lever to see if it is adjusted and working properly. Check the cable to see if it is broken. If the cable is okay, then the problem is inside the transmission and may require the valve body inside the transmission checked for operation. If you need help having this problem addressed, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the shifting issue.
