Save your money your second gear band is toast. Smell the oil from the tranny dip stick you will smell a slight burnt smell. You will also find the other disc to have some glazing. The drum the band goes around can be turned if you don't wait to long. Billet servo's are the best to use also Transgo shift kit & a tranny shop knows a few more tricks & don't use all the shift kit pieces. The rod length on the servo's is not stock so I discourage do-it yourself if you don't have a good tranny guy by your side. You live close to Phoenix trans let them fix you up for less the $2000.00 including a 2800 to 3000 stall then let them know if you want to shift hard. If you ask for hard shifts it will lay down second gear scratch. Love mine now & befor I had a sluggish 1-2 shift & yah the second gear band was toast. Metal to Metal also no codes. LOL

If the fluid is not burnt, you can fix or reduce by increasing pressure by either of these two ways:

1. With a programmer, set the 1-2 shift pressures to ~12 PSI above stock.

2. Without a programmer, drop the trans pan, adjust the electric pressure control solenoid screw about 1/8-1/4 turn in. It's on the solenoid itself and you use an allen wrench. You will have to remove one of the accumulators to access the screw, that's easy, just a few bolts.

Of course you should realize if the fluid is burnt then increasing pressure will only, mask the symptom.
