Does this occur after the vehicle has gone over 40MPH?
Automatic 1992 stalls at red light. starts ok, stalls when you put it in gear
yes , it runs good on the highway doing 100 or whatever,then stalls at light
Does the car stall going around the block? If it only stalls after highway driving or driving faster than 40mph then you have a faulty torque convertor clutch solenoid.
Does an automatic have a clutch solenoid? Where is it??
Yes it does. It's located in the side transmission pan on this vehicle.
what is a side transmission pan, where is it, what does it look like? Do I have to get under the car? thank you
Yes, it's on the driver's side of the transmission under the car. It's not the bottom pan, but the side pan. Depending on the condition of the bolts it can be a pain to remove it yourself.
It's inside the transmission if that makes it easier, to access it you have to remove the side pan. If you want to attempt it yourself I would recommend getting a manual for the car from your local autoparts store.
On my 92 GA the bolts on the pan were rusted solid and we could not get them off without lowering the transmission. It's in a bad spot.
thank you for all your help, I won't have to bother you again hopefully , Janet
