[DML] Re: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION STARTING OUT IN 2ND TILL IT WARMS UP???? HELP PLEASE



Your shift computer is still malfunctioning. Since you say you
replaced the capacitors you probably have some bad solder joints.
Generally they will be the ones on the ribbon cables between the
boards and/or the ones going to the cables to the bulkhead connector.
You can choose to try repairing them or opt for another shift computer
(which will probably fail eventually anyway).
