automatic trans + falcon = >:|
a few weeks back i posted something similar in the trans/tech forums, but it pretty much died after the 2nd reply due to my net being cut off :( .. anyways, i thought why not ask the more popular forum deticated to this model..
here's the rundown
my 12/94 ef atmo is playing up, i am under the impression it could be a certain chip due to the symptoms but i'd like to get more insight.
anyways, say i'm cruising in drive, down a road at about 80km/h all of a sudden the trans will slip into neutral and stay there most times unless i manually shift it into 3rd, or into neutral and back into drive. and usally after i've manualy shifted it into 3rd, it will eventually slip back into neutral if i don't change it back to drive...
confused yet? lol
sometimes when driving around town at the slower speeds, it will just go ballistic like i have a shift kit installed (I don't btw) and will just slam down into 1st/2nd when i lightly touch the throttle. or will do the opposite and stay like a slug in 3rd/4th and not change..
also, 8 times out of ten, when she's working right and i want to manually put it into 2nd to engine brake a hill, it will not change..
hopefully i can get some help here and get down to the bottom of it, it's giving me the shits. and if/after it's fixed, sell the thing and get myself another manual :)
