[DML] Re:Auto trans stuck in 2nd



Sounds to me like your shift computer is
malfunctioning. I had a similar problem where I'd
always start in second, but I could always get up to
third. Unfortunately, it sounds like you can't reach
third either.

If you're starting in second, I'd say one of two power
transistors on the shift computer circuit boards has
blown. (which also raises the question of what caused
it to blow) As for being unable to shift into third...
not sure. Could be a loose solder connection between
the shift computer board and the "mini-alternator
thingy" that rides alongside the tranny that measures
RPM.  (had that happen to me too) The signal is bad
and the computer thinks you're going slower than you
are. 

I'd definitely say change the tranny fluid and filter
first and see what happens. After that, let us know
how it goes, we're all here to help =)
