E4OD odd shifts.

So, picked up my stroke the other day. its drives nice except for the shifting....

1st to 2nd is good, but 2 to 3 is TERRRIBLE! it will rev to 2600 with almost no throttle input, then i have to let off, and then it shifts, then i get back on the throttle, and it kicks onto OD after .5 seconds.

it seems to help if i toggle OD between 2nd and 3rd.... Not so high revving.

Does anyone else have this problem?

You need more then a shift kit. Sounds more like the clutches are slipping from 2nd to 3rd. Which will cause the problem you are having. My suggestion have a trans shop run some diagnostic tests on your trans with there diagnostic computer. If you wait you will eventually have the O/D light start flashing at you.

I had something happen like that before in my BMW. Ended up that the tranny wouldn't shift because it sensed the rear tires spinning slightly different. I had a flat and put the spare on and the spare being new and the other tire already lost some thread the car sensed that something wasn't right, like drifting or so, and therefor wouldn't shift.

One more possibility is metal is being lost from the pump in the transmission, and getting into the valve body of the transmission. When was the last time the fluid and filter were changed in the transmission?
