Starting out in 2nd is heating up the tranny fluid very fast, it would be best to start out in 1 then up to 2 when you reach about 10 mph, just remember to back off the gas when you shift just like you would do if it was a standard transmission, try to find some help with the repairs, maybe try the disabilities advocate in your area, it would be cheaper to fix it now instead of waiting till it goes altogether.
