'99 C5 Automatic shifts from 1st to 3rd during normal driving
(Cape Cod, MA)
My '99 Corvette C5 automatic transmission shifts from 1st to 3rd during normal driving. This shift occurs at 3,000 RPM unless I let up on the gas and then it shifts to 3rd. If I manually downshift, when I put the shift lever in 2nd it is as if I am in neutral. Car has 30,000 miles on the odometer, has been adult owned and was never abused or raced.
