comment Car starts fine cold or warm, but has trouble inbetween
I agree with the approach, but I think you can eliminate the check valve. The engine would leak more fuel after cooling than it would after a brief stop. This could also be applied to the injectors, but somewhat not.

comment 2004 Chevy Malibu jerks when deceleration is followed by acceleration between 25-40 mph
Does your car have a torque lockout? If so your car could be shifting in odd ways and the result is jerky shifts.

comment shifting stops when critically low on gas
Limiting the user to one gear when it is critical they efficiently reach a gas station seems like a liability...

comment 1997 turbo Diesel Toyota Hilux Gear Selection Problem
I agree, just ramp on and off the accelerator while moving the shifter (to take the pressure off the gears).

comment How do I find the correct pins in a CAN-BUS connector?
mac - Thanks, I'll give them a shot.Nick - Yeah, I figure it's going to be harder than it should be. I was hoping to just bust out an O-scope and stumble upon the right one.

comment How to fix an electronic transmission that chooses overdrive and torque converter lock
That's what I initially decided, but how does that explain why it chooses a high gear all the time? PS - I don't think there are many differences between transmissions even GM vs. BMW
