1997 SL2
Arrow Automatic starting in 2nd gear???

Hello brandnew to the site, and here is my prob:
I have a 97 Sl2 that had a bad tranny, diff pin came out.. so I found a used 1 with 85k miles at jnkyrd, the car just came in as I pulled up. how ironic.
anyway I replaced the tranny thanks to you guys it made it alot easier,
ok every thing runs nice, up and down shifts are good, but my problem is when I accelerate, it feels like it starts in 2nd gear,, could it be electrical like maybe a loose connecter or the tranny itself.. any help would be greatly appreciated..
Thank you!!!

Default Re: Automatic starting in 2nd gear???

It will start in 2nd if the fluid is cold. Do you have any codes? As to temperature, check the connector on the temp sensor and if there is oil inside of it clean it and the sensor out with CRC Electronics Connection Cleaner. The sensor is the small sensor close to the fluid filter.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
