Automatic Transmission Problem
I have a problem with my 4-speed auto '91 EB Falcon GL.
Gear change from 3rd to 4th is delayed like it needs more revs, and changing down while showing down and stopping it gives a big shunt at 20Km/h.
4th usually kicks in at 60Km/h, but it labors in 3rd while driving in town, and while slowing down to stop is a bone-shattering experience while waiting for it to kick-down.
I have owned the car for 4 years, and had the engine replaced aprox 60,000Km ago, and the problem has occured on and off for the whole time. Transmission has been serviced with no problems found, even technicians cannot find a problem.
Is it the transmission, or a combustion problem, can anyone help. I am stumped.
