Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Are any codes coming up? Do the RPMS go up but it just doesnt move like it should or does it just act like you arent pushing the gas?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The RPMS does go up to like 2 1/2 maybe 3 but it doesn't move like it should.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

That sounds like the transmission is slipping. Do you have a scan tool with live data?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not right now I have a friend that has a machine that gives him the codes. The speed is not registering either.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When my friend reads the codes it doesn't say the tranmission
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

That is an important detail you left out.

Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Does everything else work? No warning lights on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

everything else is working.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

What is your scan tool "telling you"?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My friend did it yesterday he just said it had a lot of throttle body codes. He didn't tell me what they were.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Without providing the codes to me you are setting yourself up for failure and you are just going to get a generic answer that is probably unhelpful to you. If you want the expert service you paid for you need to provide me with full, detailed, accurate information. Are you willing to provide me with the codes or should I opt out and see if another expert wants to provide you with a guess?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will try back latter with the codes.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Alright. I will be standing by. Just reply when you get the codes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm back with the codes, p2112 and p2104 are the two codes it is giving me.
