automatic problem, sticky valve?
I have this problem already a few years and it does not seem to get worse.
When I start driving the 2nd to 3th gear slips upto 2500-3000 revs and then changes but it only does this once. After this 1 time slip it changes gears without problems. Car only done 72.000km ( 2008 focus 1.6 petrol )
I know this problem and so I let drop the revs and then it changes gears normally.
I spoke with a mecanic about it and he said it aint the solenoids but a valve. He showed some metal pin in an open autmatic gear box and that the whole part should be changed for a revised one.
I try to find more information and photos about this and see if its that what the mecanic said and how to solve this.
