Thanks, you have been great. Has anyone ever run accross an issue like this? I called a transmission shop, and they say it sound more like an internal transmission sensor. Consumer stated at 17,000 miles, the engine overheated and failed to continue operating, dealership examined the vehicle and made the necessary repairs to remedy problem, then on 26-Sep-2001, engine was leaking oil from the right valve cover gasket which had to be replaced, also the water pump was leaking, the door ajar light on dashboard illuminated and would not go out leaving doors in the open position. I just wanted to say that I went to my first mechanic, I found him online, and he had the highest rating and the most responses. Do all of the reader plug in under the dash, or is there a computer just for the transmission? I would have thought we would get a code or something.
Transmission problem 1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 255K miles When car is pulled into gear, the car dies, immediately. Is there a particular brand or type of scanner that you would recommend? After road test, transmission shop owner says he is 85% sure problem in electrical. It had caused people to install parts that were not needed because they read codes that were not it the proper sequences. The Metallic exterior colors Medium Gold, Light Blue and Midnight Grey will have a late availability. We are new to this area, and do not know any technicians, that always makes it tough. These events happen intermittently and after a breif wait it will general start. .
I found the transmission shop, by accident, asking a professional parts man for a referral, because I was so new to the area. I think he might have posted them himself. Probably about right for the shift solenoids. Like always this will not happen when the dealer can experance the event. Any help you could lend would help immensely.
Have been towed to the dealer and then always starts upon arrival. It idles fine and run great, until it is pulled into gear, the it stops running. Mike, I asked about the pruchase of one, and was told it was not a good idea. Owners may contact Bosch customer service at 1-888-715-3616. This has been a very good experience, I've learned a ton, in the last couple of days. I don't do a lot of work, anymore, mainly because I don't have time or understand it as well in today's world. I did not care for first fellow, he seemed intent on transmission overhaul.
The brake pad shim may shift out of position causing the shim to contact the brake disc resulting in damage to the disc. I let you know how this comes out. Remedy Bosch will instruct the owners how to have the affected brake pads replaced, free of charge. Depends how much you want to spend, a very good laptop program can be found at autoenginuity, or cheaper hand helds at any parts stores, you can always read your codes and post them here with make model and year engine size of the car and we can help from there. Transmission codes are read through the same connection.
Our technician ran the codes, found none, and told us the torque converter was staying in the locked position. Biggest conser is that power steering and power brakes fail with the engine when this takes place on the road at hiway speeds. I had never heard of anything like that. The recall began on May 26, 2016. Any suggestions as to what you would guess? I also own a 2008 Lacrosse Special love those V8 engines a 2000 F-150 4X4, and a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle.
Thanks merlin, you have been a lot of help. The torque converter clutch disengages whens the brakes are applied. He said that the transmission coded there was no electrical failures within transmission. He also said he unhooked the electrical to transmission and it was the same thing. See your dealer for details.
He wanted to replace the transimission. Check electrical connector at the transmission, make sure it's firmly seated, try disconnecting it, then inspect for corrosion, bent pins and do the same on the transmission, use a mirror to see the pins. I just checked on this a few days ago, because of the Lincoln problem, and was talked out of it. He did not pull the left front wheel off, and did not pull the inspection cover off of the transmission. He was not answering my questions directly and I felt he was trying to sell me a transmission. .
