Sorry I am not as knowledgeble regarding the technical terms you are asking about for example "is it not going into converter clutch lockup, is it pendulum shifting?". I have no clue. Let me attempt to respond. Bye 'Slipping out of gear' I mean the full shifting range, from lower to higher gears, no longer functions. The trans stays in highest gear and will not downshift at stop signs, etc. Usually I can cure this problem by simply pulling back with modest pressure on the shift lever and when I do (usually) the transmissing re engages the availability of the full gear range. I then may not need to pull back on the shifter again until the problem reoccurs. When this happens the dash display goes from ED to just E, but returns to ED when the shifter is pulled back and trans is re engaged. Ocasionally, when I start the car, the trans indicator display is blank and the gear is locked in the highest range, until I stop the car and restart it. This usually returns the display and trans to normal operation. From what you have said I am guessing the gear selection switch is worn or the EGS needs replacement. I have no idea how to approach this RnR or where the EGS or selection switch is located. Is is something I could do myself? Hope this helps. Thanks for your interest and time!
