Thanks for the reply.
I did a transmission flush of the fluid and changed the tranny filter. Driving has improved, but most times when I move off from a dead stop, I can still hear the engine over-revving.
Actually what's happening is the vehicle is moving off in second gear. After starting to move (and I hear the over revv), if I floor the accelerator, the tranny will shift into first gear, then all of the gear shifts going up are normal.
When slowing down, I can hear the 3-2 down shift, but I cannot tell if it makes the 2-1 down shift. If I come to a full stop, and try to move again, I can tell I am moving off in second gear, and have to go through the "floor the accelerator" routine to get into first gear.
At a stop, with the tranny in "Drive", if I shift to "1" there is no indication of the tranny shifting into first.
Can this problem be caused by a bad solenoid? I have the 3 speed A670 tranny.
He says he had second gear starts, and solved it by installing a Sonnax governor spring. I'm willing to try that, so if you can give me some guidance, it would be greatly appreciated.
