are you talking about the automatic transmission or the stick shift.. ????? anyway,check fluids fill and or replace fluid /service...


Hi Kelly, i have done this over and over again but car wont change gears smoothly, its an automatic transmission and over revs to change to next gear, all this happens while on a hill and will change nicely on a slope or flat ground
