OK, got my car back from having another secondhand transmission put in (free this time) car still has similar problems to before:

2-1 downshift takes ages and is harsh (problem doesnt occur if done manually)
2-3 shift flares
if i plant the foot, downshifts revs jump up trans slips like all buggery

have taken it to a transmission specialist (fluidrive on thomsons road)
they reconed they dunno whats wrong with it, suggest getting bands adjusted no other ideas (that wouldnt involve pulling the box apart)

The bit that worries me the most is that the previous transmission that was put in there started out like this and deteriorated very rapidly (harsh shift on every 1-2 change - slipping through all gears)

ECU shows no fault codes (cept PS switch - which is working fine anyway)

My thoughts are:

3rd dodgy box in a row
ECU prob
blockage/damage to transmission fluid lines?

anyone had similar problems or know whats wrong with it? im going tommorow to DTM transmissions to get a second opinion and to get the bands adjusted.

On other news i got a 3.27:1 LSD in my car now, BOY OH BOY does it FLY! and some awesome sideways action too!

What power are you running through it?

Sounds like low line pressure. Unlikely in 3 gearboxes! Get your fluid level and cooler flow checked.

went to DTM (another trans place in geelong) his only suggestions were A bad earth connection, or B the loom for the trans is sitting right on top of an injector and is picking up interference from it,

im gonna try fixing those two things first, IF still buggered:
Get bands adjusted IF still buggered then:
take my car and a wad of cash to a trans place and say ill pick it up when its all fixed.

No one else who drives my car seems to be able to get it to replicate the problem as well as i can, dunno why :) - they all drive like girls IMO.

One other thing WHY do different specialists all seem to contradict each other on how things work, and what goes wrong with them and the course of action to take?

same thing happened when i got a dodgy steering rack, two seperate places both gave different fault assessments, (but both wanted to sell me a reco rack!)

At least this time neither place suggested it would be easier to just get it rebuilt!
