Ok, so here's a quick questions. I have the 2004 v6 with the <strike>crapco</strike> jatco transmission. I have installed a B&M tranny cooler, and done a flush for synthetic fluid. Car was driving real nice and smooth after that.

Well, I decided to do some mpg tests and see how much further I could go without the high speed starts and getting to the speed limit as fast as possible. I noticed that my car didn't seem to have the pep in traffic when I would hit the gas. Just seemed to sluggishly start.

Well, the past couple of days on the drive home from work, I would do some faster driving at first and get it up through the RPM ranges, using M mode, prior to shifting and push it fast. After that I would shift back to drive, and I noticed the engine would be more peppy on the rest of the drive home when I would hit the accelerator. Rather than the above paragraph, where I left it in D the entire time.

Is it possible my car would somehow pick up on the faster driving when I was in M and adjust the way it shifted in D mode to accomodate for my driving style? Am I thinking my car is smarter than it is?

Just curious, because it seemed a bit wierd the way it adjusted itself in the past couple of days.

Thanks!

1. 99% of it is in your head
2. The engine performs MUCH better when at full operating temps.3
3. Don't be stupid, treat the Jatco with care, it'll treat you with care

no, that doesn't seem possible. Did you recently remove your battery cable? Could be the car relearning

No, I haven't.

I had a feeling it was mostly in my head. And I usually do treat my car very well, but I wanted to test out some things with performance, so I pushed it a bit to see the results.

Thanks for the answers guys!
