I just bought a 87 RX sedan with a auto tranny for $50 bucks. fixed the crank pully pin, replaced two coolant hoses and drove it home. the only problem is that when I put it in drive it will only drive in 1st gear. I have to manually shift it into 2nd. Is there some sort of adjustment that I can make to make it work? I'd love to drive 50mph someday. Any auto tranny help would be great.

also check the front diff to see if its got 80w90 in it, or ATF.. if its got atf in it, change it asap.. if the governor is apple cored real bad, then your tranny is toast..

are you sure its an RX? i don't recall an RX being made with an auto tranny..
