nice car well your problem is simple do a conpression check on each cylinder if you are getting over 135 thats good then you know that the problem is in the tranny


Sounds like a shift linkage issue. This has NOTHING to do with compression testing!


I'm with Bob on this one. Have you checked the transmission fluid level? On a side note, Please tell me you got rid of the cat converter and opened up the hood shaker by drilling out the rivits?

Im not sure what you mean by drilling out the rivets on the hood shaker and the cat is fine on the exaust ??


Adley I said that on a side note. What i ment by getting rid of the cat converter(and putting full dual exhaust on) and opening up the hood shaker is thatit will increase horsepower, a lot.
