Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. does the engine surge at idle? while driving? how is it shifting? check engine light? and what the heck is a tracter light?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
noticed rpm dial moves slightly at idle. surges continually while driving. upon starting acceleration, a hesitation and klunk and a jerk start.tracker light is on periodically. tracker refers to front drive wheels losing traction and alternate wheel takes over (traction)

the site does that automatically. sorry

Expert:  david craig replied 8 months ago.

you need to have the transmission control module interrogated for fault codes. anything else would be just guessing and i dont guess. so when you have the fault codes let me know and we can continue.
