    No, i have full function in L, 2nd and D... just in D there is a lackof power in pull off... im leaning toward solenoid... other wise the symptoms would be across all gear selections?

    Jon, what you described is what is happening. the sluggish start is only when facing uphill. Other than that it goes well. and sometimes even uphill it goes well. Just when its hot it plays up. i Guess its worth checking the TPS before i remove the T converter.... now does anyone one know where...

    Mine was sluggish (diesel) had the pump and injectors overhauled and my cruiser has serious power now. open road it just pulls on and on. Once it kicks into 2nd it goes very well!! its just that pull of from stand still... i would love if someone could explain it.... im close to having the TC...

    Thanks Bob, so if the box is locking up in L- the TC is being bypassed? so if it is weak in D on pull off, is this indicative of a tired Torque Converter? not a slipping clutch pack in the Gbox itself?

    Great info guys, i will just use the Dex 2 that i have. uHu- i was also thinking that the WS spec is for the 750. when you say the A442f os not that smooth, in which way do you mean? i do get jerking particularly when i pull off from stand still, get to about 40km/h and back off on the throttle...

    Speedometer not working

    Ah...now the Transducer sits on the actual Gear box and i correct? Will it have an electrical connection to it that i can place a meter on there and see if we're getting power to that transducer? Its Bucketing down here and cant climb under the vehicle right now. some time there is a little...

    Does the transponder not have something to do with the starting of the vehicle? regards.

    Speedometer not working

    So my Speedometer in my 1998 V6 95 works intermittently. There is no pattern to its workings but the last few days it has not worked. I have searched the forum and cant seem to find a thread that deals with this..... i have researched the parts and it either in the cluster or gearbox.... has...

    Air flow?

    So what you are essentially saying is rather save the money and have the heads ported and put better exhaust inlet and outlet manifolds on over std exhaust? Will i lose low down torque this way? Doodle- when you say remap, do you mean UNI-chip???
