Not sure how to describe it, but here goes. Under normal driving, the car is running like a champ, no issues at all. But then this happens. I will be trying to replicate it this weekend when I have some time. Cruising in 3rd, and I get on it. I get a skip shift down to 1st, no problems. Car builds up a head of steam and I think when it tries to shift into 2nd, it feels like the whole car just hit a giant bolder. I get off the gas, car just runs normal. I am assuming this is a trans issue and will need to scan it and try to get some trans data. It also might be a blower issue as it has had a whine to it that I can't pin down.
Car has a bunch of stuff. TOGs, CAI, 1.8RR, pully, DHP, exhaust, Ported TB, MAP IC....I really hate the thought of this being the end of the 2000, I bought the sucker new in 2000.
Cant justify putting much money into the car. Hopefully picking up an S5 Vert tomorrow to drown my sorrows.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
