Re: my ef's erratic automatic
I had the exact same problem. Even through me into 2nd on the freeway! Man was that fun to watch. I don't know much about this stuff either but my mech told me he'd seen it a few times and told me there was a faulty chip not working correctly. The way to test it is put the car in 1st, then drive and see if it changes gear even though the stick is still in first. Rev it out. If it changes then that should be it. Cost me $90 to replace. You should hope its only that.
Hope it helps.
