Loss of power at 1500 rpm between 2nd to 3rd ish FIXED

I searched the planet to solve this mystery. The problem as highlighted. A couple of months ago I had the fuel pump changed at an independent location here in Los Angeles. $1200. A short while afterward I started losing power at around 1500 rpm between 2nd & 3rd. (NO CODES) Instantly I thought it was a faulty pump but turned out not to be the case. They said to change the battery; I did no improvement!

I cleaned throttle body, PVC, and MAF. I had the codes checked twice by rouge independent and the dealership; nothing. However, the dealership noted that my transmission had a slight leak, but they would not go any further; their policy. But they did direct me to a transmission place. Not good news; We could change the oil for 1k and see if it fixes the problem, but the reality is it might be a rebuild for $4500 with RR's transmission reputation. $1k to see?? Most likely a 4k rebuild :( Oh well in for a penny, threw the dice and 3 hours later, I get the call we all dread. John, we serviced the transmissions and it fixed your problem!! No more jerking, hesitation or loss of power

Boy, it is hard trying to figure these things out. From what I have read it's a pretty easy change out (not), but I wasn't going to take the chance with something so important that could give me another 100k or 5 if not done right. hope this helps a fellow struggler

Thanks, Keralis.


Yes probably easy to do if you have somewhere to lift it up and put it on stands, (live in a condo) and have the space to remove the pan without covering yourself in oil as you remove the 21 bolts. If I rounded one off I think I would be in a lot of trouble! And I know I would have!

Of course, I have to make sure it at 30 - 35 degrees as well. I need a breaker bar, suction pump, a few other tools and a partridge in a pear tree (per video form Atlantic British)

To me, it is such a critical part of the car, I didn't want to take any chances. Also, I could have taken it to "jacks auto" and paid less, but I felt more comfortable with transmission specialist who said if it didn't work they would apply the $1000 to a rebuild if I went that way.

Did I mention I'm not a mechanic! :) :)
