  1. Hi, looks like transmission is getting stuck due to some kind of debris causing problems in lower valve body. It is probably being sent into tranny from torque converter so we are planning to flush the tranny by running engine and letting fluid exit through the auxiliary cooling radiator in the front. But I have another problem regarding engine which is occurring when engine is cold and that is - very rough idle and engine stall, almost. When engine is hot problem disappears. The collant is disappearing as well as so it might be blown head gasket that was changed - 100 miles driven on new one. Im very concerned about FEL - PRO quality of head gaskets form ROCKAUTO that seem to give up. When removing intake manifold I found oil present on valves. Could that be seals on valves in camshaft?
  2. Regarding that tranny stuck in second gear. When replacing lower valve body we again found and removed some dirt - debris like from a cloth used for wiping parts clean. Question stands: is it possible for torque converter that had not been replaced or thoroughly flushed to send debris into valve body or somewhere else and cause blockage?
  3. Hi guys, here is the update after few weeks of waiting for parts. As mentioned in previous communication, Cadillac Seville has been suffering with "Stuck in second gear" condition, ABS and TRACTION CONTROL light on. Used EBTCM unit (the brain part) replaced = ABS and Traction control light is GONE, car breaks normally. New LOWER VALVE BODY put in transmission = car works and shifts as smooth as before. Happy, car fixed after 4 years of on and off finding what was wrong with it. Next day car is stuck in second gear again. I mean WOW. What the ...

  5. 0Line pressure test update: minimum and maximum line pressure as listed in GM manual within required limits in Drive Park Reverse and Neutral. List of codes available: TC0027. TC0073. P0741. AC1340 and codes involving memory alive.... No codes for shift solenoids. Sonnax company is asking for ridiculous money just for tool set in order to install valve body rebuild kit so better choice is going for a rebuilt lower valve body unit with guarantee for 239$. When changed along with EBCTM unit will let you about car's behaviour. Thx for help on this so far.
  6. Tranny technician did not have time for line pressure test today so on thursday I ll get back to you with results + codes somewhere in my notes. Thx
  7. Appreciate that. By the way car is located in Slovakia central Europe. Some of you NHL fans might heard of Marian Hossa from Chicago or Marian Gaborik from Los Angeles Kings. Also Zdeno Chara from Boston Bruins.
  8. I will provide VIN tmrw. Car is at the shop. You are right I will speak to transmission guy and we ll go for lower valve body. Solenoids are fine so we check again valves and springs. Clear. The only transmission code remaining is P0751. Apart from that are TC related 0027 and 0073. Rest of it is my notes at transmission shop. The thing is that the guy has done a research on that transmission and he is also suggesting that EBCTM unit is delt with first to see how transmission reacts after that. The problem here in Europe is we dont have sufficient testing equpiment for GM cars of that age 1996 model so we have to go step by step. I have fluid flow charts printed out for him so hopefully we will find out what to do next.
  9. It is japanese export that ended up in europe. It is a left hand drive like in the US.

  11. Hi. Will provide codes tmrw. Transmission guy has got my notes. Thx for patience
  12. Hi. Yes looks like I got it mix up. Sorry what is a transmission A code you mentioned?
  13. When it comes to EBCTM unit, I will replace it anyway since there is no ABS function on brakes (have checked car behavior on light gravel, car is skidding like mad). Do you recommend changing just that "BRAIN" part on EBCTM or changing the whole unit with brake lines as well? I have been warned about buying this stuff from EBAY since when purchase is made, item is delivered first to family address in New Jersey and then send overseas so having faulty unit after 3 - 4 weeks would not make me happy. Any recommendations about reliable company for EBCTM units on the market? Lastly when EBCTM is replaced is PCM going to recognize it? Thanks a lot.
  14. Appreciate that. My transmission guy has warned me already that if pressure testing is within limits he is refusing to take furter responsibility unless I have TC control sorted out so it looks like Im gonna have to do some ebay or rockauto.com searching for rebuilt EBCTM unit. On tuesday I will know more after he gets line pressure checked. Thx
