It shifts hard and late even when easy on the gas. There may be a fuel delivery / spark delivery issue as well, but from what I have experienced I think there is still something wrong with the trannsmission in either selenoids or vavleing.

The hard starts were hit and miss. Once it would stumble and die on startup, and the next start just fine. No rhyme or reason as to which time it would do it.

The PCM does state that the 1st -> 2nd shift was initiated by the PCM. Even if it takes a few seconds for it to do it. Although, at times it almost felt to me that the transmission started to shift, then stopped and waited 2 seconds, then finished to shift.

Guys - the obvious, but someone checked the fluid level right?

I once bought a car for $75 that had engine knock and a bad tranny. 3 quarts of tranny fluid and a timing adjustment fixed all it'* problems.

Look for the easy silly stupid things after drinkin a beer. (The beer slows you down enough to see the obvious problems)

On the amount of power, just got my 95 SSEi, 20-30foot strips are typical.

What'* KR stand for?

Don't worry...In MN'* "Chapter" if you will....I think beer'* mandatory...LOL

Anyways....The trans has been apart quite a few times. So fluid is good.

KR = Knock Retard. The amount that the computer has to retard the spark timing in degrees when the knock sensor detects the engine knockin.

Default 1995 Bonneville trans

1995 SSEi Bonneville with shifting problems. Fuel Filter replaced. Plugs checked and regaped.(has platinum tips) New ACdelco Plug Wires soon to get 8 mm aftermarket red wires. Trans was out March 2005 for inspection and replacement of 2 valvebody valves & a hole was enlarged in the separater plate. The problem of the 1-2 shift was still occuring,so I checked the accumulator .The 2-3 accum. has 2 springs and the smaller one was broken , so using a donor spring it got put back together. The 1-2 accum. spring was okay but I put in a donor spring there also. The bottom pan of the trans was relatively clean with no metal or clutch material in it. From a dead stop the car takes off a little sluggishly . The 1-2 shift occurs at about 4500 rpm at WOT and is harsh while the other shifts are correct and smooth. All 4 gears are there and seem to be solid.

I forget, but I do believe that platinum plugs are bad with Force Inducted vehilces....Due to the heat from the compression of the air by the SuperCharger. I could be wrong.....But with Andrew having the 2.5 Pulley I would go with NGK TR-55'*. What did you regap the plugs to? I have mine gapped at .57, though factory is .60....57 is a good place to have them gapped with the smaller pulley. Andrew and I have Identical cars and here is my setup:

2.5 Pulley
NGK TR-55 Plugs Gapped at .57 (One heat range Colder than stock)
180* T-stat
FlowMaster 80 Muffler
Cold Air Intake.


I talked to my tranny shop today about the shifting issue and the code. They for sure would like to drive it if he'* in the area sometime. But they said that they've seen that Quad 4 code come up before with a funny acting trans and it ended up being fuel related.

In the end, if worse comes to worse, Andrew will have first shot at the tranny from my parts car. I think that this is all I have for now.

The shifts when I rode in it (3 times like this) aren't bad, but they're just damn late.

Platinum plugs are not bad in all force inducted cars, but they are in L67'*.

Andrew did this start after you kept blowing tranny cooler lines?
