Yes I do.
the heat/temperature sensor
entire gearbox/transmission including the torque converter and ATF
NB. When I changed the transmission I used the same old speed sensor. this is the only component I re-used
Thank you for your response.
I will have it re-checked based on the advise you have offered.
Please clarify when you say transmission could be overheating. What should cool the transmission? In my understanding hot ATF is cooled once it goes through the radiator and back into the trans, right? This is the reason I had it replaced with a bigger capacity higher performance New radiator when we suspected overheating.
Whereas I give benefit of doubt with the replacement trans being faulty as the first - I agree with you it is a highly unlikely coincidence - I bought if from a trusted dealer in Dubai. A problem with the TCM appears the most likely culprit - I will have it checked
My mechanic has done further checks and he tells me the problem is with the speed sensor and not the TCM or Transmission. Where is the speed sensor located - is it part of the transmission?
normal automatic transmission
