These recommendations do not cover all possibilities. They are some things to check before you have your transmission rebuilt. Always check transmission fluid level first. Always run a scanner on any computer controlled transmission. On modulated transmissions make sure they have enough vacuum.

The transmissions above are front wheel drive, 3 speed automatics.  Common problems are: The transmission shifts soft and early. It shifts hard and late. 

Always check the throttle pressure cable that goes from your transmission to your carburetor or throttle body depending on the configuration of your engine. This controls the shift points and sometimes the cable can be no good or out of adjustment.

The transmissions above are front wheel drive 4 speed automatic transmissions. They are computer controlled.  Common symptoms are transmission shifting erratic, slipping or not shifting at all. Also the check engine light can come on.

External sensors like the throttle position sensor, vehicle speed sensor quite often go bad, causing these symptoms. Check the throttle cable adjustment that goes to your carburetor or throttle body depending on the configuration of your engine. 

Always run a scanner first to see if a sensor is causing your problem.

O9G

The transmission above is a front wheel drive 6 speed automatic transmission. They are computer controlled.  Common symptoms are transmission shifting erratic, harsh or erratic reverse. Also the check engine light can come on.

External sensors like the throttle position sensor, vehicle speed sensor, The multi function switch can go bad, causing these symptoms. Always run a self diagnostic check first to see if a sensor is causing your problem.
This transmission has severe valve body wear, along with common solenoid problems, the shift solenoids that attach to the valve body, sometimes they can go bad between 65.000 and 100.000 miles. I have found that many times the only fix for some of the valve body problems is to purchase one from the dealership. sorry cause they are expensive.

The direct drum piston cracks a lot,  you should always buy a new one.
