I have a 2007 with 87K miles and just had a new head job. I tried to drive and test out the new head and valve and my car would not go shift out of 1st. Runs good but not going over 20-30 mph. List of problems: 1. Will not shift out of 1st gear 2.Have to manually unlock (shift lock) to shift out of park 3.New head job 4.Does not go over 20mph 5.High RPMs 6.Sometime shift unlock and sometime it locks. 7.Sounds as if I have a new exhaust on it .
