Just bought used SC2, something weird in 2nd gear
 
Hi everyone.

If I use 15% throttle, or even wide open, the car will in second gear only mind you, seem like it is shifting into a gear that is between 2nd and 3rd and RPMS will drop, in the middle of the gear. Its so weird to explain. If I am WOT it will hang there for a couple seconds, and if im going easy it just does a mini shift it seems like, but it isnt the 2-3 because when I count its like I have 5 gears :dizzy:

If im on it heavy the shifts seem ok besides that so I dont think its slipping?

Thanks for reading any ideas will help! Im just doing Seafoam now so I havent changed the plugs yet but im going to change them after that and then do a tranny flush and filter.

During normal shifting the TAAT transaxle locks and unlocks the torque converter based on engine load, speed, throttle position etc. This will cause a change in the engine rpm. That is what you are seeing. Normal.

wy2sl0: you didn't post up what year your car is...if it's an '02 it may have the 2-3 clutch housing issue (poor surface finish causing piston seal degradation)

Ooh...def change that, and the connector if it's green. I'm too lazy to look, but I'm sure the ect sensor issue has been fully beaten to death:)
