I beleive when the tranny goes into "fail safe" mode it stays in 3rd gear. This would account for the slow take offs you speak of. Sounds like Fail mode is working like its suppose too. Cannot think of the name of the component on our tranny that is known for failure. That lillte computer modual on the tranny. Anyone....some help please.
