I still believe that this is a trans issue. Specifically a MTX-75 issue. Whenever you want to have fun and go to third with some force, it refuses. I think it is related to my issue with it refusing to go into reverse when cold. But before you do more spirited driving, I would check out that TPS and your vac lines to ensure that it doesn't do that again. But as far as the transmission, it is as durable as the sun, but it has flaws still.

(And that grinding issue has made me look like an ass before. Lol. I have said, "that's a trans issue". They think I am a bad driver....)
