EF diff/auto probs
I'm hoping some of you more experienced peoples can shed some light on a problem that is driving me crazy. Pun intended.
My EFII XR6 auto seems to be playing up...When cold, the autobox goes into "limp home" mode..ie it gets "stuck" in 3rd gear and won't change. If I stop the engine and restart it, everything is fine until the next cold start.
However, I'm a little suspicious about the diff. Here's why:
When I take a tight left hand sweeping bend with power down, the car kind of "jerks" as is it is being thrown into another gear, but does'nt actually change...it quite unerving. Also, the diff occaisionally feels a bit clunky, particularly when going from D to R or vice-versa.
I took the car to a auto-tranny specialist - he couldnt find much wrong with the box apart from some error codes that the ECU was displaying..it indicated a faulty solenoid which he replaced, but the problems is still there.
Anyone esle had similar issues and found a solution? Any input would be appreciated.
