    I have read the diaries till my eyes are crossed,excellent info. Today I dropped my valve body to replace the gaskets to fix the 2-3 shift flare. Once I got it apart,there was no gasket damage,all bolt were tight.The symptoms are occasional shift flare, not every shift cycle,sometimes 500 rpm jump sometimes 1000. after driving about an hour in hot weather if I shut it off half an hour, when I start again it goes in gear ok. I take off go 100 yards to first stop sign,maybe a rolling stop, hit the gas acts like in neutral ,off the gas on again takes off ok. Then it makes a hard to describe moan, groan,sorry to say this but it almost sounds like its farting.It only does this once then I guess it cools back down and it drives ok. My question is, do you think the epc could be the problem? If not.What? Valve body still setting on work bench. All solenoids ohmed out in spec range . PS no codes no flashing OD light
