I've had the same problem. My 02 did the same thing. The problem was a vaccume leak from the transmission to the canister under the battery. This vaccume is nessacary to accuate the lock up in the front end. It cost me about ten bucks for hose, and about 1 hour to route the hose. To check this, I pulled the battery, battery holder, to expose the canister, you will see a hose, and a cable. Pull the hose off the canister and blow through it. If you hear air. You have a leak.
Hope this helps[/quote:a8a9370d59]
I will try that this weekend and see what happens! I will post an update sometime next week, thanks a ton for your help![/Quote:a8a9370d59]
Alright guys, well the post about the hose under the battery was correct, apparently, my battery was leaking a little bit of acid, and some of it leaked onto that hose, which ate a hole through it, making it unable to obtain the needed vacuum. I found all of this out by taking it to a small repair shop that looked at it for free, and they wanted $200 to fix it, and sadly after calling around, this is the cheapest place in town, and I am from fort wayne, IN which a fairly good sized city! I have a friend that deals auto parts, and said that if I can find out what material the hose is made of, that he could get me the parts to fix it, so does anyone know what type of hose it is? He said that it is not hard to replace.
