Any check engine light? You may have a manifold vacuum (MAP) or throttle position sensor issue. The transmission relies on several sensors to know when to shift. I honestly don't know the logic behind every vehicle but chances are you are having an issue with a sensor that is throwing off the shift timing.

Thanks for answering back. I have no check engine light on, and i just replaced tps, and the aic senors. It will eventually go into 3rd but it takes longer then it should. What is the map? Is it somewhat easy to do?
