I just purchased a 1997 Saturn SC2. My mechanic buddy and I just did a head gasket, transmission temperature sensor, new computer (well, a used one but new to me) new headbolts, water pump, and new belt. Car starts right up, and drives fine. Unless I come to a stop for more than about 10 seconds. When I try to take off, it feels like the car is trying to take off in 4th gear. It bogs down, but if I push the accelerator to the floor it downshifts into the lower gears. It doesnt feel like the tranny is slipping, it almost feels like a problem with the computer (maybe it isnt telling the tranny to downshift when I am coming to a stop?). Any suggestions?
have the same problem?
