I turned the modulator key this afternoon about 180 degrees .... the minor flare that remains happens only in the shift to fourth at about 27 mph. At 30 mph and above it's fine. I'll probably turn it a bit more next weekend. I'll also replace the ATF again in about 1K just to ease my mind about any remaining sludge.
