maybe that why i let mine run for 5 10 mins top lolWhen the tranny is cold, it doesn't want to shift up gears because it's trying to warm up so that the lubricants work better. It's more apparent in large trucks, where they won't even shift out of first year until a certain temperature is met. When it gets colder, it'll become more apparent.. just don't run the car to the ground right when you start up the car.. or let it idle for a minute before driving.
normally you're bang on with your posts, but this one I will have to sit out for. Not sure, but I definitely think that isn't right. My car shifts to 3rd and even 4th if need be when it's cold. Then again I don't usually go right to highway speeds when the car is cold. Computer is programmed to set the shift point higher for that simple reason, to warm the engine. Higher shift point = higher rpm's = car warming quickerwhen the car is cold,by default it wont change to 3rd gear.
What ya mean default never heard that before my tranny when cold goes into third
