Did you by chance get your vehicle scanned and Iron out what the problems may be with your transmission?
Please let me know!
checked tansmision fluid color. Still the red pink color it's suppose to be not burning smell. Took it to the shop to get scanned. Today. So far they're still not done, but they've had the car for going on 8 hrs. So that's not sounding too good. Said they checked the tps and it was fine. They said something about it bogging and then having problems starting. Possibly miss firing, but that's something that I had not experienced with it doing. Funny it worked just fine when I brought it there this morning. Anyways still waiting to hear back from them on the news. I'll give them a call back in a bit.
Can you please keep me posted as to what they find if anything. You have the same problems as I do and I cant seem to find out what it is no matter where I bring it.
I have brought it to 3 different shops, one had it for 2 days, one for the whole day and same with the third.
they said it was that they need to rotate the valve springs because the engine was miss firing. It's funny I brought it in this morning, they took 2 test drives and found nothing. They turned off the car were going to say nothing wrong with it, tried starting it up and it was bogging. They said it was miss firing and now to rotate the valve springs it's gonna cost $650 and that's not including the $70 scan. I'm supper pissed at the moment because it took them 9 hrs to figure it out and now I have scramble to get a ride to work tomorrow so I don't miss another day of work, but I hope this helps you with the problem.
Ps sorry for the spelling mistakes
So there is nothing wrong with the Transmission?
You said you have a problem with it having a hard time getting into 4th gear. What outcome did you get from that?
From what they told me there was noting worng with the transmission. I know, i'm confused too, which leads me to believe that either they are fixing it because they "think" it needs to be done or because they did something to it while in there possesion. If it fixes the problem with the "slipping" feeling i'll let you know but I will not get the car back until tonight at the earliest.
I was talking a another friend of mine, on a side conversation and he said maybe the torque converter.
But like I said i'll let you know more when/if I pick it up tonight.
