When in gear and not moving, this is not an electrical issue. Its internal and mechanical concerns on the CD4E transaxle. Most likely related to the valve body, a stick pressure valve from a weak or damaged spring or a score mark in the bore. The valve body on this model can be removed with the trans still in the vehicle. This is what I would remove and disassemble and check first. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris
