Slipping no. Sluggish yes. When I step on the gas it goes, and it does not slip out of gear. Just feels sluggish to take off. I have never had the linkage checked on the transmission, would that produce a code? I checked the other two gears by manually down shifting - I get the low gears if I shift into them and thru to the higher gears. (Stop Drop into 1 accelerate to approx 15mph and manually shift into 2, accelerate to approx 20-30mph and Shift into Drive) When I did this - upon shifting to drive I could feel the Jerk of the shift and the Transmission went into Third lowered the RPMs and kept on going. Judging how the car rides it does feel like it starts in 2 and progresses upward.
"Unlike other vehicles, if you place the shifter in 2nd, it will start from that point."
Are you saying that in my car if I shift into 2, it will continue to shift thru the rest of the gears or are you saying if the linkage is on the 2 it will be in "D" and start from 2nd because the linkage is off of where its supposed to be?
