I have a video, how do I get it to you?

I have uploaded pictures through imageshack before, but they don't do video.

Here it is, just the tach but the audio states the mph. Can do another tomorrow if needed.

Are you sure its shifting? I never seen the RPM'* drop from 2000RPM. It seems like you were stalling out the TQ at its stall and it never dropped from it. I think your PCM is commanding limp home mode.

I don't remember if you checked or not, but are you getting 12+ on your shift solenoid wires on the trans harness?

It does definitely shift from 2-3 and back, as I can manually select those gears also.

Finally broke down and took her to the shop.... They found that the voltage regulator is over charging and causing a limp condition.

Once home from vacation a new alternator is on the list.
