Ok- so I tried the car with no power to the transmission by removing the plug at top of tranny(have to do this after car is running because it will not even crank starter if this is unplugged beforehand) The car is definitely starting in 2nd gear, and when I shift it into D and OD it does nothing. It stays in 2nd gear. I ran it up to 55 or 60mph which is about 3250 rpm in 2nd gear. So doesnt look great for this tranny. If the 2-3 solenoid valve was stuck open(ON) would that cause it to not shift? Thanks again
When you take off does it seem like the transmission is slipping bad? Check for battery voltage on pin E on the round plug.
ROFLMAO... (inside joke with Dan)
A stripped 4th hub shaft will keep the vehicle in the next lower gear (that works). Meaning if you had 3rd gear, the car would stay in 3rd and not shift to 4th. Since you also don't have 3rd, you are staying in 2nd.
Thanks guys, the car felt the same as it did with the tranny plugged in except starting in second gear. It does not feel like it is slipping at all in second with it unplugged, and I did get into it a little bit. I will have to check the voltage on pin E. I will let you know. Thanks
