with the brake on i can get the rpm up to 2500 and do a one wheel peel floored it will shift 1 to 2 at 5000 and chirp the tire.
now heres my question idle is about 800rpm when i sit at a light a long time and go to take off i acts like its in neutral and i have to rev it up to 1700 to take off and it grabs hard is this how its supposed to work?
never had a higher than stock converter before.
From your post , It sounds like the trans is dropping out of gear at an idle.
The trans "bangs' into gear as you try to take from a stop after sitting for a short time??
If the trans is dropping out of gear , that is not the stall converter operation. There is a problem with the trans.
Was the trans a fresh rebuild ? IS it a high mileage unit?
