New owner with alot of questions...
Today, I purchased a solid and straight '70 280SE Sedan. It has the FI 6 with the automatic. The car is rust free and runs very well but I do have a few concerns.
I have some slight oil dripping from the oil pan area as well as below the transmission. Not sure if it is due to the car getting minimal use in the last few years. Probably gaskets giving out but could it be something else?
When the car shifts it is a sharp shift (hard and jerky) Is this normal? Also, I think the car is shifting early from 1st to 2nd. What are some good ways to make sure the automatic is shifting where it should?
I'm excited about owning this classy classic and looking forward to years of enjoyment. Thanks for any info and please let me know if any of you are in the Minnesota area.
