Hopefully this will fix it…

I was barely home with the Jeep last week when it was clear that things weren’t right. This came as no surprise.

Everything was well enough except the transmission kept randomly going out of gear under acceleration, especially up steep grades. The Gulch has no shortage of steep grades.

Oh lord I did not want to go through all that again. But I went and spoke with the owner yesterday, he had a confab with his transmission guy, and they thought they might be able to adjust us all out of the situation. So first thing this morning…


…and now we’ll see. I admit to a spasm of optimism: Once back on my home turf I went to the steepest grade near the Lair, stopped at the foot and then slowly climbed it, and the transmission worked just fine where it certainly wouldn’t have (and didn’t) yesterday. So we’ll see. I so want the transmission saga to be over.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    So, was it coming out of gear (no drive, motor racing) or was it downshifting, (still goes, but slower with a little higher engine rpm?
    If it was downshifting, yes, just an adjustment, probably at the linkage on the throttle body, if it’s set too advanced will cause easy and early downshifting.

    I hope you’re right Joel. It’s too damn cold to be taking the e-bike into town.

    Shortly after getting my transmission replaced a few years ago I had similar problems. I checked the fluid and it was dry. Turned out a bad hose connection caused the leak. OK ever since. Was a good rated transmission shop, but the mechanic didn’t dot his i’s or cross his t’s before declaring the job done.
