trans prob 4 spd auto

well me trans been a bitch lately

first of all its started to go into safe mode alot and only give me 3rd

other times it will die as im driving along then try to fire back up

sometimes it will other times it wont as soon as i turn the key off leave for 5 then she starts and drives fine till it happens again

other times itr will excellerate threw 1st into 2nd and just bog down and loose power. sometimes changes back to first then into 3rd i think.

fluid levels r fine a little burnt but over all not to bad.

is she stuffed or could it be solinoide 1?????

Re: trans prob 4 spd auto

Losing power seems a bit strange to happen at the same time.

Checked all earthing points on comp and gearbox? Make sure no wiring is loose etc.

Re: trans prob 4 spd auto

How carefully did you check the earth strap? These do break occasionally but stay int he same position, so it looks OK even though it's not. It would also cause intermittent problems like you describe...
