I have been having trans issues for a little bit. Then driving on the highway was getting a itermediate 500-750 rpms rise/slipping.
Then I got cel and tcs lights. Read code, lock up malfuntion.
So I bought the lock up solenoid set the external filter and did a drain and refill.
Around town driving shifted much better without any slipping.I drove for about 30 minutes away and started to feel slipping.I turned around and before I could make it home the car was slipping worse than it has ever.
I pulled into a gas station. Pulled the fuse to reset the ecu. After about 5 minutes I started the car with no lights They turned back on with in 2 minutes. Finally got home.
This morning I removed, cleaned and reinstalled all pressure switches/sensors/solenoids, all tubes and screens under the solenoids.
cel and tcs lights are off. Now I have a blinking d5 light.
Drove around town fine today and went for about a 15 minute ride over 55 without the cel or tcs lights returning and no bad slippage.
I did not go for a long drive and my problem seamed like the trans started to have problem when it was hot and when I would be on highway cruses. Like a bad converter.
I have not got the d5 light read yet.
I think about the only thing left I could do from the out side of the trans in maybe a temp sensor and another drain and refill before seperating the trans from the motor.
If anyone has a idea what to try before making a big choice, I'm all ears.
