Trans sensor wires mebtioned might be the harness
Mazda Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 11 months ago

That is definitely a common issue. If the wiring is shorting it will make the computer think that the transmission is hotter than it is which causes this exact issue. Using a computer scan tool that communicates with this car I usually monitor the sensor readings to see if the wiring is faulty.

They said they have checked every wire. Its been in 4 times and 3000.00

Does the transmission shift fine once it is in gear? Do you continue to get the transmission warning light?

but rpms are running high
Mazda Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 11 months ago

Was the transmission itself replaced or rebuilt?

No
Mazda Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 11 months ago

Thank you. From what I have seen with this transmission if you are experiencing high rpm with that initial hard shift then you have a serious internal transmission failure. The issues with the harness and sensor readings will usually affect the harshness of the shift but not cause slippage and high rpms. Typically the transmission needs to be disassembled and the issue is usually in the clutch pack shell breaking. Once this occurs the transmission cooler will also typically become clogged with debris and cause this all to become amplified.

Seriously crap
Mazda Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 11 months ago

These shops should not have charged you that much to go through all of this other stuff without checking this first.
