SOURCE: 2003 nissan altima 2.5s transmission rough shift

Probably sensors! I have already replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor once, nissan replaced it once under recall and now it is bad again! Plus my speed sensor is bad too! Go to any part store and get diagnostic test ran, it will tell what sensors are bad.

SOURCE: won't shift out of 1st gear

Replace the output speed sensor on the front of the tranny. It has two wires going to it. ANd looks like a round plug with a bolt like base on it. It is also white.

At what RPM 1st gear should shift on a H2 Hummer 2003


well is that hummer that a 2 ton or 4 ton vehicle ?

would take a lot of revs for first gear to make it roll from a standing start
think it will be fitted with an 6 speed automatic transmission

guessing only from my heavy vehicle driving experiences
first should change below 3000 rpm

if transmission was slipping in first gear you would know

suggestion
ring up the local hummer service division for the correct answer

A hard shift between 1st and 2nd gear?


Most likely a solenoid on the valve body. It is just a coil that when energized pulls in metal rods, some push. When most coils start breaking down, they only act up when hot. Could also be the valves themselves. Also a bad seal. Ask friends for a good transmission shop. Some one that won't tell you a rebuild and only change a valve solenoid.

2003 Kia Spectra odd rattle in shifter


You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.
