is your check engine on? Mine went off but it was a fuel inj model(98 olds regency..great mil on the high with tech cleaner) ...sound like you a good injector cleaner..Techron is the most reliable ..my chk light went off and the shift problem stopped also' 'like yours disappeared' aft i used the 'tech cleaner' and 'gased up at chevron ' 2 times!

i also never saw a mech..the techron cleaner worked..more power in a 380 horsppower
