Re: S-Series Automatic Transaxle "Reverse Slam Cure-All"

Did you ever solve it? If not and still working on it, call this guy. My guess, is yes, it could have damaged an output transistor.

Re: Secondary air injection system

2001 SL-1, the air pump is no longer powering up. Do they go bad? Brushes? Can they be repaired? What should I check first, the Air Pump power relay???
