sounds like a tranny job may be just around the corner, ok..heres what I'd do... Get a can of Berrymans B-12Chemtool, and add to the Auto Trans fill... Ignore what the can says, because it used to say can be used for flushing engine oil and to free valve bodies of automatics... They changed the label because people would add the stuff then LEAV IT IN!! DO NOT DO THIS!! You will be adding a can and after a MELLOW SHORT DRIVE, you (or take it to the oil changers)will be draining the trans fluid and replacing the filter (A TRANSMISSION SERVICE) Your refill of the transmission will also include a can of KW brand TransFix, or Lucas Automatic Transmission Treatment...IDEALLY BOTH !! Check for leaks, and start driving....IF the problem is fixed, great, you've DELAYED the INEVITABLE---a trans overhaul... Heres, my email, in case I can be of more assistance, I don't ususally give it out, but I do this to repay bad Karma from my past life....:) also Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at your local library for diagnostic procedures etc, just make copies of the right pages, as they are usually REFERENCE up and good luck :)

either shift relay, or shift modual It does not drop to first gear, it drops into limp mode, that means you have only gear 1 and 2. this can happen, because of wrong signals coming from a faulty speed sensor (on the gearbox) or usually the solenoid or the filters in it are blocked. Replace the solenoid and your tranny will work again like new.
