AUTOMATIC , JUST PUT BOTH CV AXLES I N NEW. SOLD THE CAR AND THE NEXT DAY THE GUY SAID HE HAD THE CRUISE ON FOR A WHILE AND THEN THE CRUISE LIGHT STARTED FLASHING AND THE CAR COASTED TO A STOP. TRANS INOP IN ALL GEARS.

Could be the axles are not engaging the transmission or the computer is not getting the TPS and VSS signals that represents the throttle/governor pressures and unable to command the transmission
Expert:  mackin1 replied 8 years ago.

The axles sometimes break, which the axle will spin, so you can see the speed o meter work, but the car will not move.

AFTER I CHANGED THE AXLES IT WAS DRIVEN AT LEAST 100 MILES BEFORE THIS HAPPENED. DOES THIS VEHICLE HAVE ONE COMPUTER FOR ENG. AND TRANS.OR ARE THEY SEPERATE.
