    That certainly sounds like the ATF needs flushing out and possibly the governor needs a clean out as well.

    Auto Defender, bloody wish they had them here, is it a production auto, or a mod.

    thanks for the replies,i'll pass the info on,he's only had the car a few months so probably needs to do all the fluid changes to be on the safe side

    as to wheather it's a production or modification,he suspects it' a mod
