I tried to get an answer on this a couple of years ago. I had a new trans put in my 2000 Sephia LS. Besides the OD light perpetually flashing, the car will not always start off in first gear. Sometimes the car wants to start off in third even though I put it in drive. I have a clean filter and the proper fluid. I have backed it up in the driveway about 20 times and it will start off in first about half of the time. On occasion if will stick in third. If I turn the car off and restart it will start in first, but not everytime. I have replaced that black triangular thing the shift cable attaches to in front of the trans, (I can't remember the name of it) and adjusted the shifter. What else can I replace that may give me a glimmer of hope. I want to sell the car since it just has been sitting in the drive taking up space for about 8 years. (spare) Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Some Questions, in order to understand better the Situation:

Have you Checked the Codes?

Does the Speedometer readings fluctuate / no readings?

Kind Regards.
