    My car locks the TQ in 2nd gear and immediately shifts to 3rd gear. It gives the sensation of a slipping trans. Can the lock point be changed to a different timing or controlled manually?

    AC condensor fan speed. What controls it?

    So if I turn my key on with AC on the fan runs fast. Seems there are 2-3 speeds) My problem is the AC is kicking out in stopped traffic as it is likely hitting the high side cut out psi. I popped the hood and the fan is just idling along at that lowest speed. What tells the fan to run on hi speed?

    I an reach in and spin the fan on the clutch easy at about any temp. (engine off). What is the functional theory as to when it locks up? I reached in and tried to spin my Duramax clutch fan today and it was like it was full of 900W oil. Very stiff.

    My Excursion has a water valve that shuts off hot coolant to the front and rear heater cores when the AC is on max. This has been common in vehicles for many years now. Has anyone toyed with adding a valve in the heater flow loop? It can be a risk to "dead head" the hot water flow in some...
