Please explain partial lock up and full lock up. Also what are your rpm when your injectors shut off?
From what I understand full lock up is when the torque converter is fully engaged, which happens around 38mph on my car, but partial lock up, which I don't have, is just some fraction of torque converter usage during lower speeds when the torque converter cannot function fully engaged. It's not a matter of rpm, it's just if the LUS (lock-up solenoid) is engaged, which is over 38mph usually.

'

everyone with an auto tranny has "partial lockup" as you call it

once the engine is spinning, and you are in gear, there isn't anything anyone can do to get out of partial lockup other than shut down the engine, put the tranny in neutral or hit a steady 38mph(for you svo) and go into full lock-up.
Lock up solenoids are also commonly called torque converter clutches(TCC)

I am commenting on the fact

I am commenting on the fact that obd1+ honda ecus have two (or more) lock up solenoid controls, one is full lockup and the other is partial lock up.

I finally have an answer!!! 2 years ago I asked this same question on another board and was told my transmission was slipping. I new that was bull**** because going up hill at 52 the TC would disengage once, the car would slow, then twice for the TC (each time about 500 RPM), then if necessary, kick down to 3rd. This is normal! Thanks SVO! It doesn't happen often anymore because I don't climb hills like on the Kansas side by the river, nor do I give it lots of throttle input anymore. I just wondered why it did this. Partial L/U must give you a little extra power without sacrificing all torque engagement. Brilliant I say! W00T (I know it's been a while since that statement, but 'tis appropriate).
