Previous question was on what the last owner said she thought was going on, after getting car in my possession, I have found out better information.
Car runs fine but the transmission seems to be starting out in 2nd gear. (Seems like someone through out an anchor) Once the car gets to about 25 mph, it runs fine and seems to shift through the rest of the gears OK. Could this be a faulty shift solenoid? When it comes time to test the solenoid, what ohms reading should I get on a good solenoid vs a bad one. I have not attempted to check the readings on them yet. If this is bad, where can I go to get a replacement for a decent price?
I checked the speed sensor and there was no filings on it at all, and when I metered it, I showed about 750+- ohms and when moved over metal or magnet, it jumped to above 1000. So I assume it is good.
I also changed the trans, filter. And fluid looks and smells good and is proper level.
