Hi welcome to just answers my name is ***** ***** the engine light turns on on the dash board before or after stalls?
this problem is not transmission related, if the engine has problems starting after it stalls is possible you may have a bad knock sensor, fuel pump or crank sensor. Does the engine bogs down before it stalls or it just turns off like turning ignition key to off.
OK give me one minute .
does the engine rpm goes hi if you step on the gas but the transmission wont move?
is the red gear light on and service engine light also?
take your time .
OK if the red gear light turn on then yes this is a transmission problem that may have to do with the torque converter lock up solenoid but to be more sure he will need to drop by any repair shop that has a computer scanner and access access the codes stored on the transmission controller this codes will give an idea where the problem is
this can also be do to low level but for the transmission to be low it would show an oil leak , have you seen any oil leaks on the undercarriage
have your son go to a regular shop and get a list of the codes stored and let me know what they are and at the same time see if any leaks from the transmission are present.
