Hi guys
I've had a few drams today :(
i had to change my harmonic balancer & i also cleaned out my throttle body but now my auto is not changing gears poperly
after replacing the balancer with a new one
put everything back together it starts & runs fine but when i drive it it doesn't change gears until it hits around 3500rpm in each gear & changes hard, you can also feel it kick back down a gear when stopping. is this Limp mode??? or have just knocked something??
i did clean the throttle body out & did have both sensors off the throttle body when i cleaned it
if limp mode how do i get it back to normal

thanks for all your help guys

Try putting a bit of that special conductive grease on the pins in the connection plug.




Better off with not enough traction than not enough power.

spray the pugs pins with CO contact cleaner by CRC then a light spray with CRC 2.26 or WD40. If the battery was off for a period of time the KAM may need reseting, this will take about a week of normal driving.
