One thing to note.I have noticed in the last 6 months, a weird shudder in the engine/transmission when it auto shifts down a gear from overdrive.
Also. Engine idle is fine. Purrs like a kitten when sitting. But struggles a bit when under a load(Put into drive or reverse)
UPDATE: I removed and cleaned the IAC, and Throttle body. Got it back together. Test drove it. And now it accelerates sluggish. If I gun it from a stop, it'll accelerate fast, but has a difficult time progressing to the next gear. While driving normally, if I give it gas to accelerate, it won't downshift. And accelerate. It's a gradual acceleration. I'm totally lost at this point. I didn't unhook the battery while I did everything (Probably should have) so I unhooked it last night so maybe the computer can reset. I'm going to hook it back up the morning and see how it does. It didn't stall at stops, but wanted to. It still stalled when I put it into drive from park after the car was warmed up though. Any thoughts? I'm now losing hair too!
have the same problem?
