I recently bought my wife a 98 gagt with the 3.1. (4 speed) The car has 58,000 miles. Well, the tranny wont downshift like it is suppose to. Can that be the TPS on the throttle body or would it be something internal in the tranny itself. Thanks for any help. justin

what do you mean by "won't downshift like it is supposed to" ??if im driving while the car is in drive, i have to put the gas too the floor for a few seconds for it to kick in and downshift. this hapens in any speed. even if it shifts from first to second and i slow down, its hard to get it to down shift. it feels like its not getting anymore gas OR it not downshifting which makes it feel like not getting any gas/power.
