Slight over rev
Maybe you guys can help... Before i take her to the shop.
I have a 2009 XLT with the 2.3L Auto tranny..
When cold the engine revs to about 1800 then slowly drops to just below 1500, and sit to warm up. I'm wondering if that is too high, because when engaging into gear at 1800 it's rough, after the first time of doing that i learned to just wait and let it slow down. So the cold idle is roughly 1200-1400. Now the 2nd thing, when cold the shift from first to second isn't butter smooth, and i can feel the downshift if Stop when pulling out of a parking lot. It's not tire hard chirping either. After not even a mile everything is warm and everything is smooth as butter. I'm almost 100% sure it's a problem that happens only in open loop.
I just bought this truck so it's got 30 day 2000 mi warranty so it'll go in saturday if it's not something normal.
Thanks in Advanced
