Hi guys,

when I put the lever in first gear, my car still starts in second gear, only when using the kick down it uses the first gear to take off; what could this be??

thanks very much,

That's the way it's supposed to be. Do a search on "1st Gear Start" and you'll find a bunch of info on how to get it to start in 2nd gear.
