My names Adam I’m 23 from Vancouver, Canada and I just recently got my 1996 Atrai RT Limited S120v that is a RWD, 3 speed auto, EF-ZS engine. I plan to do a Youtube build series on the Van and use it as a pop-up store for my mini digital gauge business Enginetix Performance!
When I bought it a couple weeks ago, it did not run and had no spark or fuel due to a melted engine harness. Luckily my good friend and I got to working on it and he discovered that the previous owner did not realize one of the factory grounds had a positive wire INSIDE of it and they had attempted to connect it straight to ground causing a short which was likely the cause of the melted wiring.
Unfortunately, we’re now fighting an issue with transmission not shifting properly. It holds first gear very high up in revs, but I can get it to clunk into second by modulating the throttle at about 20-50%. It also has troubles downshifting at times. Further, a couple times the PWR light on the dash has come on flashing, which I have no idea what that means. Have checked the dipstick with the engine hot fluid level seems good, nothing looks visually wrong with the linkage or transmission harness, but who knows with that engine harness being melted. Will probably make another thread asking for help/info on the transmission later, but for now it cruises great around the block at low speeds!
