2004 Kia Spectra EX 4 Cyl 2.0L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Automatic transmission stays in 3rd gear.

When put into Drive the cars shifts normally, until it gets to 4th gear. It appears to try to shift, but stays in 3rd. It will not downshift, or get out of 3rd, until the engine is shut off. A mechanic said I need a new tranny, but it sounds electrical to me. Any ideas?
