1993 Chevy Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 153000 miles
This is the second tranny with the same problem; I put a remanufactured transmission (4L60E) under my car.
When I start driving from standing still the transmission seems to shift two times into the second gear. Only when I use very little throttle it shifts like it should but when using more power it feels like it has problems to engage second gear so I feel a shift 2 times.
And the overdrive in fourth gear does not work sometimes.
the first reman tranny broke down, the remanufacturer replaced it under garantee but it was really busted inside. I am afraid that it will happen with this tranny too.
Can it be caused by the on board computer? Or bad plug connections? Both times it was the second gear and both times there was a problem with the overdrive. ATF fluid level is good, not smelly, nice red colour.
I have a second question about the brake system. I own this car for five years now and the ABS never worked. The orange light on the instrument cluster lights when turning the key, it goes out when the engine is running. But after I changed the brake pads and the brake fluid with a vacuum system the ABS warning light stays on after the engine is running. Brakes are still good, even better because of the fluid refreshing.
Thanks, Henk from the Netherlands
