1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Repair Question
I'm having my transmission looked at today, if there is a slip in 4th gear, do i need to replace it?
We checked the tranny fluid and it looks fine. the other two causes listed are "trailer towing may set code" which i don't know what that is, and the other says "internal transmission fault". Will this be the undoing of my car? I only paid 300 for it and don't want to have to buy a new transmission.
the converter is slipping internally and most likely the trans will have to come out and either be re built or replaced.

This is more ilikely to be electrical issues rather than the transmission itself.
P1860 = PWM solenoid electrical problem.
It cold be the wiring, the PWM solenoid or a bad PCM and testings have to be carried out to confirm.
