Delayed/hard shift into drive

Car: 1993 Eclipse GS

When shifting from park to Drive (N to drive) it takes like 3 seconds or so and then it goes into drive hard. Is that normal for these cars or could something be up?
Goes into reverse fine

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

When was the last time you checked your tranny fluid level? That's the first sign it's a bit low.

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

other then that when it is in gear its got a rough idle @ 1K and below above 1.5K it smooths out a bit

Hitting stop signs and lights the idle drops to like 700 or 800 and gets rough and sometimes feels like it wants to die and then bounces backup to 1K

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

i got a spare IAC, could swap it out and see what happens (actaully have a near complete low mileage 4g63T setup) but change my mind on doin the swap so its all gettin sold. I just got this car (and a galant) about 2 weeks ago.


Im actually pretty new to the whole FWD import OHeverything scene. im more of the V8 sub mid 70s stuff. Did have an RX7 vert i traded for the above cars

Its got a pretty bad case of lifter tick as well, i heard swappin in 3g lifter will cure it?

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

Won't hurt to flush out that port while you've got the old AIC out.

As far as the lifters, I dunno, I'm brand new to this engine....but I know a treatment of Rislone hushes up the 3.0's, and they tick just because.

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

Went out and took it for a ride and checked the trans fluid, Levels good just a touch below that top check hot line and there was a few little bubble in it. Still alot of vibration in gear (R and D)

what would it take/cost to change the trans fluid and filter in it if i took it in to a shop? IM in MN and its cold out otherwise id do it myself

Re: Delayed/hard shift into drive

all u need to do is unbolt the pan and the filter should be right there on the valve body so just unscrew it screw a new one on and install a new pan gasket and fill it up, (whatver u do, do NOT us rtv on the gasket)
