Just something I wanted to know. Why is it that when I'm in low rpm it's kinda hard to shift gears. Not hard but it kinda gets stuck. But when I'm hauling @$$ and I shift on high rpm it shifts smooth and pretty quick with low effort, as if nothing is wrong. Is something wrong, or is that the way it's supposed to be.

smart ass response required by law.

question: where is that at?

awnser: in the transmission!

actually to check it you need to pull the spedo gear and top off the fluid to the top of the opening. it's below the throttle body. follow the cable from the firewall down to the tranny then remove the cable from the gear by turning the 'nut' at the bottom of the cable and/or just loosen the 10mm bolt that holds the gear in place. you'll need a funnel w/a long hose to fill it back up. you might want to change the fluid at the same time. 3.65 litres of gear oil for warm climates, atf for cold.
