[DML] Re: Automatic transmission shifting



Computer governor. Don't keep driving it this way,its really tough on 
the transmission internals which cost a LOT more. You actually have 
the better of two failure modes, in the other mode it will start in 
second and shift to third which burns things up in short order (hi 
Ken). 

If you're handy with electronics you can fix it with about a 50% 
success rate, if not you can buy rebuilt ones with a slightly higher 
success rate (but a warranty).
