I've checked it and it's in 3rd and in 4th. But it drops more then 100 - 200 rpm more like 500 to 750 rpm.. Is this ok?


thanx, I will check it this evening.

if in third, about 4100-4300 revs, the autobox locks up the converter, revs drop by about 100-200 rpm and if you keep the gas on, the car seems to get a second wind. It does the same thing in 4th at about 2000 rpm, or about 90 km/h which is about 46 mp/h.

This might be what is happening. Try putting the trans in "3" and see if it does what I describe and compare to what you think is happening.
