Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

I heard they shag 'em facing a cliff so they'll push back. Anyway, yeah, it sounds like an issue in the valve body. For some reason I'm thinking maybe the line pressure is too low.

Yea I am thinking shift solenoid I did the horn relay swap and ruled out the relay. If it was line pressure I shouldn't be getting a 1,2,3 shift the delay could be fault internals in the valve body damaged spring or stuck (varnished) check balls. As for the torque converter it locks up at about 1700-2100rpms in third gear which should be normal. I can live without overdrive just nice to know I went from 100miles on a half of a tank to 100 miles on 1/4. So probably will replace the valve body, and the TV cable as well.

Not all sheep have wool, so you can't count on grabbing the wool.
Wearing a kilt is the best practice, that way they don't hear the zipper.
