    Are you sure it is down shifting and not slipping?

    Those use a govener that makes it shift I think. I had my trans guy explain it to me but I started to get the charlie browns teacher thing going on. WHA wha wha wha. Anyway is it a lockup and is it locking up? With that milage it may just be time to rebuild. as you can see I don't have much experiance with them but mine blew up in an 85 IROC years ago and did the same thing close to the end of it's life but it was bleeding out too. I had a bad trans mount that cracked the tail shaft and I have to give it props cause I left about 2 quarts on my then girlfriends dad's driveway and it bleed for 30min at highway speed. lol

    I'm still having the same problem.The cable has been adjusted,and it solved the problem to some degree, but not completely.Anybody have a good Transmission Shop in the San Fernando Valley.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    700R4's have a tendancy to "hunt" for a gear when you're driving between 30 and 45. It can't make up it's mind if it wants to be in 3rd (1:1) or OD (.7:1). My 89 RS did that all the time.

    I will be having a 700R4 stage 2 build with stall converter (I believe 3200rpm ) with 20,000 miles on the rebuild for sale for $300. Doesn't slip or anything. Have no idea how much shipping would cost tho


    Edit: Shift kit also

    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!
