    So my GF just bought a 95 Eclipse and it has weird tranny issues. some times it runs fine with no problems but then it just kicks into limp mode (stuck in 2nd gear). I changed the fluid and filter, swapped shift noid, and input/output speed sensors. same thing keeps happening. Also it only happens in town and when driving slow on the freeway. I also pulled the tcu to try see if any "Caps" were leaking but the TCU is filled with some kind of red/orange gel....cant see shit

    car shifts smooth and runs great it just keeps dropping into limp mode. Im out of ideas. :(

    I TOLD HER TO BUY A HONDA!

    Almost all the time, replacing the TCU will fix the problem.
