We have a 1999 Automatic AU Sedan which stalls occasionally. Imgaine driving a manual car and pulling up at an intersection without using the clutch. The car shudders and stalls. This is exactly what happens with our AU. Problem being is that once stalled we can't start the car for say, 10 minutes either in drive or reverse. However, we can sometimes rev the engine and drop into drive and the car will jerk, but not stall and drive off.

We have had the car to our mechanic twice. Numerouse tests have been done. The automatic has been checked and is OK. Mechanic has replaced the torque converter.

This problem happens more often when the car is hot, but it also happens occasionally when the car is cold.

We are desperate for some help. Any ideas as to what this could be.

Throttle Position

Straight out

Once the computer gets wiped it needs to relearn and AU's are the funnest to relearn

I tightened my throttle by about 2 screw turns and the computer will still drop revs but won't fall to stall point

Go to Jim Mock Motorsport and he'll guide you right way as opposed to these "dealers that know" and "are learning"
