 EVIL BUNNY you posted on the war motorsport board last year that your auto trans was, errr "packing a sad" when you drove around slow...
Mine's doing the same thing, i drive around in heavy traffic, crawling along in second, then the traffic clears and and i speed up but the thing don't shift. Did you work out what was up with yours?
anybody else had this problem? The dealer changed the trans oil and the filter but it didn't make a difference....although last couple days it's been behaving.

any thoughts on skyline transmissions and common problems anyone?

 ummmm i just unpluged the revolution sensor.
had it unpluged for like ages now and its ok i guess.
has not started to take off in second or anything yet.

to be really honest you would be far better off putting a
5 speed in.
by the time you have fixed this and fixed that you could of
had a 5 speed installed.
im still trying to come up with ideas on a bullet proof one
but its still just mist in the air at the mo.

 have you heard of bady moussa?
the ghost 200sx from oz =)

he runs a race-prepped ford c4 three speed auto.
4500rpm stall converter and b&m shifter.
its a 95 sr20 so im sure someone over here could build one
for the rb =)
badys one was like $4500 or maybe more to build.

 That would be kinda hard to drive on the street. Can you imagine trying to get your car onto a hoist with 4500rpm stall converter???!!!! Hopkins as a cool looking 6 speed box, bit on the steep side though. Apparently Toyota 5 speed rear wheel drive boxes are strong (celica, supra). I remeber seeing a company at a car show that specialises in rebuilding/strengthening and selling them. Can't remember the name sorry

 Hey 25t, I had the same prob on my R32 auto. Nissan diagnosed it as the transmission speed sensor, using the trans diagnostic computer.

Funny thing is, before they tested it the trans was really problematic, wouldn't do first to second half the time. After they tested it, they did nothing else, but the problem completely disappeared, and hasn't returned in over 6 months. Dunno if they cleared a fault code or something,but I'm real happy, and the diagnostic was fairly cheap, too.
