Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
does the engine light stay on?if so,can you give me the trouble codes?
it doesnt have a tv cable
he needs to get those codes,,it may be a bad tps[throttle position sensor] or something like that
the codes will give us a clue to what is going on
if he doesnt have a scanner,auto zone and most parts stores will scan it and give him the codes for free
yes,,the ommon problem is transmission failier..but,lets wait till we have the codes
when you can.post those codes
great,when he gets the codes,please give them to me..
not using sarcasm,these transmission are known to burn out because they dont have an external filter,the filter is internal.the filter will clog over time and cause low fluid pressure,thus,burning out the transmission
no need for apology..
when he gets the codes,let me know what they are..
and we will go from there
the po730 code worries me here
the incorrect gear ratio means the transmission is/has been slipping
i think it mave have lost a gear,,and that is why it shits hard,,,it is skipping the lost gear[i would think 2nd or 3rd
the rpm's must get up high enough for the lost[burn out] gear,then when it hifts,it jerks.
i would sugest taking the car to a transmission shop to let them test drive..and get the thoughts of a guy that can physically get a feel of it..
again i think it is internal,if this is the case,the transmission would need to be rebuilt or replaced..sorry.

again,,the reason i think it works well when you first drive...
is because the fluid is much thicker when cold,then when it heats up,the fluid gets much thinner,thus causing the loss of pressure.
do check the wiring,but it does sound mechanical to me and not electrical
understand,i rebuild automatic transmissions every day,,but do get an opinion of a transmission guy that can physically look at it
im not ruling out electrical..but,again sounds mechanical,,worn cltches can hold when the fluid id cold and thick and slip when hot and thin,,and you do have a slip code.
again,all i can do is give you my houghts from what you tell me.
