Got my 2003 Rincon

Hello to all. I bought a non running rincon. Took motor apart and replaced rings, timing chain, guide, tensionor, oil pump chain and orings. Also misc other orings and of course the head gasket and other major gaskets for the top end. It runs great! I have no shifting in auto mode. I'm thinking its because the speedo is not working. I get no code for the speed sensors though. Actually I'm getting no codes at all. I unplugged the TPS sensor and it gave me the code for that so I'm thinking the diagnostics are functioning. Anyhow just trying to see if anyone here has had similar issues. I like running it in manual though. I just like to have everything working. Next I am replacing the front wheel bearings and a cv boot on the left rear. Front brakes need work too. Have any of you guys tried the disc conversion kit sold on here? Guess I'm rambling now? Let the games begin!!

Thanks Helmut! I have another issue I forgot to mention. I get no engine braking unless idle is set really high. Is this normal?
Yeah, I agree. If the speed sensor is bad, there's no way it can shift right in auto.
Yea thats what I'm thinking. The only puzzling thing is that there is no failure code. Not that the system is foolproof or anything. Sometimes you just don't get a code when there is a fault. I do have a manual. Went through initialize proceedure cause it was sitting for 2 years with no power. That did'nt help. I'm gonna check out wiring for flaws and corrosion next. Got the new front wheel bearings and seals on the way. I will update the post later if I find anything. Please keep the thoughts and Ideas coming.
