  1. A video for the swap will be great. I am curious as to what will happen to the electronics related to the automatic.
  2. Thanks, I thought it seemed not normal to me as other newer automatic vehicle I observed holds their engine rpm as soon as the gas pedal is lifted. Mine is a diesel version, td27 turbo specifically. I tried also doing turning off the overdrive, but it seems it does not have any noticeable engine braking. Though it's certainly stupid for the tranny to go overdrive on uphill. Instead, when the OD is off, I feel the engine rpm kind of neutral? Pressing the gas, rpms rises up but the vehicle is not going faster. So when the OD is on again, instead of that neutral feeling, it just slips, and very sluggish acceleration. It occurs at 1-2 upshift This tranny seems to hold problems, like having no 2-3 upshift or 2-4 upshift as if this tranny has no 3rd gear or 4th gear, forget 3-4 upshift, all happening on D gear selector and also there's the 1-2 upshift neutral. In fact I select 2 on the gear selector as my normal driving mode as 1-2 upshift is fine, though it does makes me run at lower speeds. It also likes to leak atf at the bellhousing, near the starter motor. It certainly makes me hate to work underneath as everywhere I touch, I would have that dirty sludge.
  3. Hello, Is it normal for the vehicle when the selector lever on drive would not hold engine rpm? I run 40kmh at 2500 rpm at drive while my foot is on the gas, then as soon as I let off the gas pedal, the engine rpm would then drop to somewhere around 900-1000 rpm however there seems to be no engine braking in this period although the vehicle would slow down. Although the engine rpm would run again at 2500 rpm if the vehicle's speed is close/near to 40kmh or if the vehicle's speed is at 30 kmh with the engine rpm is somewhere around 2000 rpm if I would step on the gas pedal again, stepping it lower and lower until I can feel the vehicle is slightly accelerating. The 1,2 and R position holds engine rpm and I can feel the engine braking. Would be greatly appreciated to anyone who can answer. It's been hovering on my mind ever since I drove the vehicle.
