I really can't tell if there is a problem. When you up shift, the RPM's go down and then go up as you accelerate.

All seems okay besides 3rd were the rpms do not climb unlike 1st n 2nd and 4th its weird never heard of such a problem

Are you shifting into 5th accidentally?

Nope i thought maby it was going into 5th too untill it started working all of a sudden one time but only one time didnt know if there was a sensor or somthing that could gone out or somthing ima try n get a code reader on there tomorrow using the old paper clip trick to count the check engine light flashs n look up code i guess idk what it could be ran perfect before clutch slave went out n i had to drop tranny and it wasnt me putting it on wrong not my first rodeo lol
