RE: [DML] Re: Automatic transmission shifting

I would like to echo David's comment.  I think it's your shift computer.  I 
just went through this with my car.  Please e-mail me if you have any 
questions about the process I went through (ultimately buying a rebuilt 
computer from pj grady and installing it with the help of an AZ Delorean 
Club member).
