EVERYTHING SEEMED NORMAL WHEN I STOPPED BRIEFLY AT AN ATM, PUT SHIFT SELECTOR IN "PARK" THEN PUT BACK INTO "DRIVE" AND CAR ACTED LIKE IT WAS TAKING OFF IN 2ND OR 3RD GEAR. EVEN STOPPING AND STARTING OUT AGAIN DIDN'T HELP.I TRIED TO ACCELERATE GENTLY AND THEN ATTEMPTED TO ACCELERATE A BIT HARDER AND I GOT A STRONG BANGING AND FEELING LIKE JUNPING IN AND OUT OF GEAR.I NEXT GOT SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT. IT CAME BACK WITH PO733 (INCORRECT 3RD GEAR RATIO)OBD II CODE.I CHECKED TRANS FLUID LEVEL, COLOR, AND SMELL, AND ERASED CODES. ALL SEEMED AND WENT BACK TO NORMAL FOR 5 TO 10 MILES, AND THEN BACK TO SAME PROBLEMS ONLY NOW 3, 4, & 5 CODES LIKE PO731-PO735. NO DEALERSHIP OR AUTO PARTS STORE SEEMS TO HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? WHAT MIGHT THIS MOST LOGICALLY BE CAUSED BY? THE ONLY SYMPTOM WITHOUT ANY CODES EVER SHOWING UP PRIOR TO THIS WAS NORMAL UPSHIFT FROM 3RD TO 4TH GEAR HELD LONGER UNLESS I GOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL AND ALLOWED IT TO SHIFT SOONER? ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME. TRANS FLUID AND FILTER CHANGED ABOUT 12,000 TO 14,000 MILES AGO. 1999 SL1 4 DOOR SEDAN NOW HAS APPROXIMATELY 130,000 MILES ON IT.
I AM 57 YRS OLD AND COMPLETELY SOC. SEC. DISABLED BARELY SURVIVING ON A MINISCULE MONTHLY DISABILITY INCOME.I CAN ONLY DONATE A VERY SMALL $ AMOUNT BUT WILL BE GLAD TO DO SO IF YOU WON'T BE INSULTED BY MY OFFERING.
THANK YOU, SINCERELY, RICHARD
PS.I HAVE AN EXCESSIVE OIL BURNING/LEAKING ISSUE(ABOUT 1 QUART PER TANKFUL OF FUEL) WHICH MYSTERIOUSLY HAS ONLY SHOWN A TINY PUFF OF SMOKE MAYBE 2 TIMES FOR THE 17,000 MILES THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY DRIVEN THIS CAR, NO SMOKE ANY OTHER TIME, OR NO OBVIOUS OIL LEAKS, DRIPS, SPOTS OR PUDDLES UNDER CAR???
I have cleared the code or codes several times. When they've returned
it has been, I believe All 3 or 4 times that codes have reappeared PO733,
and on another occasion there has also been a PO732 after the PO733 was
first showing, and another occasion there was the PO733 first showing, and
I believe PO732, PO731, and PO734 OR PO735. The codes are cleared at
present, but if I drive a 10 to 15 mile round trip, if a slipped or hard
banging shift occurrs from slightly too much acceleration. The service
engine light and at least one PO733 code will reappear.
Please tell me what are transmission actuators, what is their
correct function, How many of them are there, are they a serviceable or
replaceable part, where exactly on the vehicle are they located, and
How or Why or WHAT would cause the loss of power to these actuators?
PLEASE EXPLAIN, and what is the repair for this situation PLEASE??
ALSO. PLEASE EXPLAIN what You mean by a pressure issue inside the
transmission and what to do to check it or repair this situation, PLEASE?
Lastly, Any suggestions as to why so much motor oil consumption
without visible signs of smoke or obvious signs of motor oil leakage. I
have one Haynes Manual, but it doesn't explain very in depth
troubleshooting procedures or Diagnosis.
Thank You, Sincerely Richard
have the same problem?
