I was driving my Aunts '01 OBW with 105k and 4EAT. I know that I drive A LOT diff. from she BUT. When I go WOT on the car it shift down for a second then up angain BOGS then SHIFT down and goes?? Is this a fluid issue looks like the right level and color. Or does the computer need to learn how I want to beat on it??

Sounds more like the ECU controlling it than mechanical/fluid issues.

You could try resetting the ECU and try again, or stop beating Auntie's car!

Seriously, I have never be "happy" with the shift points or the delay of downshift in our MY01. I feel like I have to slam my foot to the floor and pray the 4EAT downshifts so that tractor trailer doesn't run me over while I merge into traffic

I'll second the lazy nature of the transmission. I normally manual shift the transmission on road tests, since they normally refuse to shift down into second after a right turn onto an entrance ramp. I HATE lazy automatics!

OK, so it is a 4EAT being lazy.:drunk: Now I know why I got rid of the '98 Legacy L wagon my Grandpa gave me. That 4EAT did do weird things even after puting full Syn. in it!
