Hey,

Past two days I have noticed my car lags shifting only from 2nd - 3rd gear.

It doesn't feel like a slip to me but I could be wrong, it only occurs at medium - hard throttle. The rpms will pick up for a second or so like your revving it in neutral then it will suddenly catch the next gear. Trans oil is perfect and doesn't smell burnt or so.

When applying only light throttle, it behaves normal. I'm leaning towards the TPS, my plugs - leads and fuel filter were changed about 1 month ago.

Anybody else experience this or have any opinions, just hope it's not my box on the way out.

Thanks in advance.

Get a shift kit, that ought to make to grab gears harder and quicker

Don't think that's the solution to my problem, it's not about shifting harder and quicker. There is a lag, kinda like a miss or similar.

Well with my car if I dropped it back to 2nd, it kinda revved a bit and then dropped back down when it grabbed, example. Going about 70-80km, would boot it, it would drop to 2nd and rev for arguments sake at 4500, then grab the gear at 4300rpm. When I got my shift kit done it got rid of that problem

Hmm maybe, but it was normal for over a year without a shift kit. So I can't see it being that unless it was the service you got done that fixed your problem whilst getting your shift kit installed.

Maybe mine just needs a good service. I hope

Well they adjusted the bands too. The fluid was black when it came out so maybe a service is due

Just drove it now without the TPS connected and its still the same, so I can rule that out I guess

Ill give it a service first and see how I go, hasn't been done in about year now.

Besides giving it a service, does anybody know anything that could be causing it?

Took it to a trans shop, and I just didn't bother about what the problem is.

So I'm going for a full reco box, heavy duty parts and stage 2 shift kit.

$2500 later, should be done in a week.
