I had that problem. Ended up fixing it by doing a complete tranny flush twice. Till all I saw was red fluid goin in and the same color coming out. Fixed it right up.

2nd at 45? I thought second was like 25-35? I had a tranny problem that second went out, so it was goin from 1st to third. Pressure imbalance.
