Something’s wrong with the Acclaim. she’s having a tough time switching from first into second gear. I checked the Transmission Fluid level this morning. no problem there… so, it looks like this weekend will be spent jacking up the Acclaim and exploring the Transmission. Galecki pointed out that the problem might be a clogged Transmission Fluid Filter, and car maintenance websites seem to agree that that is a possibility.
Thankfully, The Benchwarming White Whale of Nissan Justice should be registered by Saturday. So if the problem is more severe than a filter alone, extended downtime shouldn’t be a problem.
