Re: OH NOOOOOO ... this is not a problem is it ??????
OK , i have done a small amount of test driving to try and better understand an describe what is happening . One note is that this is only happening during city driving conditions .
I have tried to drive various conditions to see what was happening and here is what i have found . While driving in the CITY under varying speeds and conditions . I may have to slow down from a higher speed andn if i am to once again accelorate to a higher speed , it seems as if the transmission is still in the higher gear such as it would be in if i was driving at the higher speed . In other words , i drive at higher speed , slow right down and again pick up speed . What is happening is that as i slow down , the trany does not appear to be downshifting as fast as i would think it should and then , when i again accelorate , it is lugging because it is now in too high a gear for the speed of the moment .
I have tried a few things to see a out of this and what i found i had to do that worked was to quickly step on the gas as the car slows down ever so slightly and then the trany is finding the correct gear to be in for the speed being traveled at . I am also not using the OD function in the city now .
My theory is that what is happening is that the trany is simply shifting gears as it sences the revs go up as i drive but because of the nature of city driving , it is continuously up and down shifting , lugging the motor and giving the false impression that something is wrong but it is infact not a serious issue . AM I RIGHT in my theory and of not , what else can it be ?
