Hello, my transmission is ok but i have some questions on shifting. Every other car i have driven revs up to whatever and then instantelly shifts to he next gear. My car has a harsh 1st to 2nd which is not a big deal but right after it shifts to 2nd it shifts to 3rd at like 2500rpm. it never stays in 2nd for more that 1 or 2 seconds. Then the shift from 3rd to 4th lags. lets say it shifts to 4th at 3000rpm, it will stay at 3000rpm for 1 to 1.5 seconds which is a long time before it shifts to 4th. It feels like if you drove a manual and held the clutch in for the 1 to 1.5 seconds you would get no power while the clutch is in. It feels like i get no power while it is shifting from 3rd to 4th. I am wondering if the clutches are slipping because when it shifts to 4th the rpm doesnt drop it stays at 3000 rpm. I know the transmission is regulated on vacuum. I would like a quick semi harsh shift into every gear. Thank you:crybaby2:
