Shift from 1-2 delayed, slips when downshifted
The 95 LX that I just bought will hold 1st gear until about 2.5K-3K RPM. I assume this is a broken spring and/or the old style 1-2 accumulator. I can take care of this just fine.
I also have a problem when cruising, if I nail it to pass a car, the tranny will downshift (of course) and slip and hit the rev limiter if I let it.
My question is this: Is the second problem related to the first problem in any way? If I change the 1-2 accumulators and the associated springs, will it fix the slipping, or is this probably a clutch related problems.
