So i have a 1993 Firebird Formula, it has a corvette shift kit in the transmission. When im driving the car, shifting from 1st to 2nd gear is fine. When i shift to 3rd and 4th gear sometimes it works and...


Why is there a Corvette shift kit, and not a Firechicken shift kit? Check your tv cable adjustment and of course your fluid level. Shift improvement kits are built for the vehicle for which they are intended, and you don't gain by putting a kit in a vehicle you want, in the vehicle you have. It should not , however, effect downshift that much. Find a reputable tranny shop in your area, and they should be able to help.

If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

96 lt-1, 4L60. 3rd and 4th gears went out. tried solenoids, no help. figured clutch pkg, replaced tranny. worked for about 10 miles, no 3rd or 4th again. replaced pcm, no help. what is it?


Could be the Igniton switch, but that would make it where it would only have 3rd gear. Do you think maybe it's not using 1 &2 and you are feeling 3rd thinking it is a lower gear.
If the swich isn't giving power to the transmission then that may be your problem
