RPM issue?!?

I wanted to know if anyone has the same issue or if im bein weird, i took my car to HONDA just about a 2 weeks ago because of a recall, they put a new oil jet kit in my car and played with the 2nd gear (says accordin to my reciept), 3 days after i put my coilovers in with wheels that weigh just as much as my stockies, i have a V2 aswell, the problem is just before i sent my car in to get fixed, at normal cruise drivin id switch gears at 2K RPM, max would be 2500, ever since ive gotten it back and its been low i noticed i witch gears at 3K, i wanted to know if this is an issue to take to honda, if my CAI is just settling in (eventhough ive had it on since july), is it normal, or what could it be? i have 11500 miles on the car.

please help, thanks.

first of all, for ****s sake use PERIODS. it took me 4 reads to understand your post.

secondly, i just got the recall too, and it may be my imagination, but the 4th-5th gear change is a little high. at 45 mph, it'll sit at 2k rpm and won't downshift like it used to. i think in the other tranny recall thread, someone mentioned a similar shift problem, and they disconnected their battery and it reset and was smoother.

How many miles do you guys have on your cars? At what mileage did you have the recall done?

At 7k miles it's very very very unlikely that you damaged your tranny prior to the 2nd gear recall. All of the trannys that we've replaced have had over 25k before coming in for the recall

Weird...I would say get the tranny fluid flushed but that's still way to early a mileage to have the fluid be that dirty. I haven't had any complaints from my customers or experienced this problem during test drives. I would bring it back to the dealer and they may find that the fluid is dirty and if thats the case I would make them pay for a tranny flush (not just drop the fluid and put new, I'm talking about a pressure wash) or they may find that there is discoloration of the 2nd gear (very very very very very unlikely being as this recall is a preventitive measure and at 10,000 miles it's almost impossible) in which case they will replace your tranny

Try the battry reset first which in my opinion probably won't fix it It's probably not that a big a deal to fix it but thats something that you should take car of now...it only hurts to wait longer.

well i called honda, and some honda doushbag told me that it was running ok, that, that is how the car is suppose to run, and that i shouldnt "mother" it to much. He told me when they did the recall they didnt do major changes to the gears so it shouldnt have affected the gear changes, but since the problem might have been "fixed" the car might seem different or it could just be me over reacting, regardless he told me if i wanted it to get checked, i should just take it in to let one of the techs give it a drive.

i was also thinking it might be that my CAI filter might be dirty, not sure yet though, ive had it on since June. thanks for the advice everyone.
