    Re: e23 and e27

    so i feel i have more of a transmission problem versus a motor problem now. when i n''D'' the motor lugs between 2-3 and 3-4 , and when slowing down it almost cuts the motor off before it down shifts. when driving in the ''3'' position, most of the issue is eliminated but not all. i only do in town driving, no interstates at all, so i never really get above 40 mph. i have a rebuilt 200-m i can pick up for next to nothing. but i want to know what your thoughts on it could be. the fluid looks fine and is at the proper level.

    Re: e23 and e27

    I got a code 30 today , ISC rpms out of range . What is the shift switch and solenoid ? Are they internal transmission parts? The 425/400 turbo swap is lookin better by the day , but I don't thunk I could afford the gas for it on a daily basis .....

    Re: e23 and e27

    Ok, a code 30 might mean you need to run a TPS/ISC procedure on your car and may not be tranny related at all.

    On some of these cars (I am not totally familiar with your earlier model) they have a shifter location switch, a switch that tells the ECM what gear or gear setting the trans is in. Sometimes these switches have a meltdown or need adjustment and don't relay that info back to the ECM. If the switch lets go in the R, D, 1, 2, or 3, the motor may either lag, stall, or not even start/run. Usually that will throw a specific code, even if it just needs to be adjusted.

    The shift solenoid is a switch that actually actuates the transmission shifting. Sometimes they leak or short, causing erratic or laggy shift patterns. Again, this should throw a code.

    IMO, I would run TPS/ISC procedures and see if that solves the problem....

    Re: e23 and e27

    how did you check the trans fluid level? The proper way is at operating temperature (warmed up), flat ground, while running, then check.

    Re: e23 and e27

    Ok, cool. I'm not sure on the TPS/ISC procedures for YOUR car. but they can't be that far off from the ones for the 4.9, although I may be wrong...
