1998 SL2
Default Re: 2002 SL2 Transaxle STILL revs from 2nd to 3rd when cold -- now w/ youtube video

Is it cold outside where you live? I have a 98 SL2, and when it's cold the torque converter clutch doesn't even engage till the engine warms up. So, I don't see that rpm drop. But once it's warm, every gear does that rpm drop to some extent when the clutch kicks in. Mine doesn't drop nearly that much though (except if I'm accelerating really heavy).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
