ues sir she still has plenty of life left in her. Your problem is a sticking torque convertger clutch solenoid in the transmission. If you look down at the transmission from the top you will see a white electrical plug toward the radiator side. Unplug this electrical connector and your problem will be gone. You can drive forever with it unplugged and wont harm transsmission or you can have the solenoid replaced and keep the torque converter lock up. (Its basically a 4th gear in the transmission) you dont have to have it. Most people just leave it unplugged. I would replace it if it were me because im *bad word* about my cars. The cost to repair can range from $50, if you do it yourself to about 300 if yiou take it to a shop. Hope this helps.
thanks for using 2carpros. Com
I looked everywhere I couldn't find any white wire coming from the front of the tranny. Can you be more specific?Drivers side or pass side?Is wire on top or underneath?I didn't see any wires that have a connector on or coming from the tranny.I even pulled both front tires, but didn't see it. Thank You for all your help, any further assistance would be greatly appreciated.
