MERCURY SABLE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT PROBLEM

1995 Mercury Sable • 92,000 miles

I have a check engine light on, not all the time. When it is on the transmission is not shifting right. I can only get up to 45mph at 3000rpm. What can this be?

The first thing I need from you is the exact codes your computer has that is are starting point.

I've tried to pull the code and it wont show. I did it by jumping the eec under the hood like it showed me on the computer and the light goes off.

Have you tried a analog volt meter instead of watch the light?Meaning a volt meter with a needle not digital.

No I don't have one of those. The attached image is how I did it. I used a jumper wire instead of a test light.

Looks like. Your going to have to try a different way or you may to just get a scanner that will read your car. If the lights coming on and its acting up we need to start with what codes it has.

What kind of different way that I can try because I don't have a scanner, and I've been trying to pull the code all day, I know the code is what I need. I really need to get this car going because it's my only way to work. It started doing this yesterday. Thank you for your help.
