Re: Poor Mileage After New Transmission...

Even with my combined driving, I personally have not seen over 14 this winter...Ive tried to stop looking at the EVIC and just get used to filling up once a week at this point.

Re: Poor Mileage After New Transmission...

I'll see 14+ if I hit the highways but I dont think i've seen over 11.5mpg in a year or more for regular city driving.

Re: Poor Mileage After New Transmission...

Well apparently both the solenoid pack and the valve body are messed up. Fortunately 1st and 2nd gears still work. Even though these parts failed and caused 3rd gear to slip, it slipped for like 8-10 seconds max, so i wouldnt think long enough for it to be toast. I am seriously thinking about getting that upgraded Sharadon valve body and bolting that on and see what happens...

Re: Poor Mileage After New Transmission...

Could it have anything to do with your tire and wheel change? I doubt it but if the winter tires are that much taller then the srts then it might effect it.
