The light stays on a mechanic told me the.motor and tranny is shot but it shifts really well
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 9 months ago.

ok..but you doont know the code numbers?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I just got the car I havent got codes.
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 9 months ago.

ok..when it is running,,does it run well?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
it does and it doesn't over heat or anything.
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 9 months ago.

ok,without the codes,,i can give you my thoughts..

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok thanks
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 9 months ago.

from the way you explain the problem,it sounds as if you may have a bad crank sensor...the crank sensor can do this with heat sometimes when they go bad,,and most times not give a code for it
