I am not certain which jobs you are referring to. With this car the only job i am working on figuring out the issue with 4th not working. With other cars and life, I am busy yes. In the earlier message that was a mistake. I put dropping the shifter into 1st when it actually is 2nd on the shifter.AMO You have your hands in to many jobs at once ,, and will never finish just one of them right . Sorry to say this ,,but the way your are working on this car you will never get it finished And the reason is ,, before you get one job done , then your starting on another one . Three posts have told you now about how your gearbox operates --you gearbox allways starts in second gear,, weather you want it to start in 1st or not .So unless you box has 5 forward speeds which it has not ,,it will only change up two times .
I can have the car start off in 1st, then it will shift into 2nd and 3rd but will never go to 4th. The RPM's just keep climbing and it does not shift. I can put the peddle to the floor and it will kick down a gear no problem. I did not know that 2/3/2 shift to maintain 2nd but that does make sense.Just to be clear on how 1st gear starts are enabled. At a stop, place the gear selector in "2", then back to "D" and the car starts in 1st. Secondly, place the selector in "2" at a stop and the car start off in 1st and stays in 1st until you do a quick 2/3/2 shift and it hits 2nd, them up to 3, then D. Lastly, at a stop just ram the loud pedal to the floor and you'll get a first gear start. A bit violent in my opinion but the car will certainly jump off the line.
