  1. 01 DTS... HA HA 13.2MPG BIG RIMS CAUSE LIL MPG PLUS A LOT OF WAIT IN THE TRUNK,...
  2. I HOPE IT AINT...IT STARTED OVERHEATING GOING UP HILLS.. I OWNED IT FOR 2YEARS NOW. CHANGED THE THEROMO. AND STILL NOTTHING. I CAN DRIVE IT FOR LIKE 20 MINS THEN OVER HEATS.. SOMETIMES IT WILL COOL OFF AND RUN NORMAL BUT NOW IT SAYS LOW COOLANT AND ITS FULL SO. NOT SURE
  3. so i got a 01 dts. not sure but think my head gasket is going.. is this a common problem and how much does it cost to fix. i heared it is a big job.. any mechanics near albany ny
  4. So you basically just washed the exterior shell of the connector. Get some contact cleaner on the pins and sockets; it might help. There are many solenoids and sensors throughout the transmission. The only way to access all of the parts and pieces is with the transmission on the bench. The codes you reported point to several different problem areas. P0502 - Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Circuit Low Input The VSS sensor is located on top of the RH drive axle extention. Easy enough to check for a loose or dirty connector. And the sensor is not an expensive part. P0719 - Brake Switch Circuit Low Input This might indicate a brake pedal switch that is not operating properly or is not installed/adjusted properly. Does your cruise control work as expected? P0741 - TCC System Stuck Off Cleaning the pins and sockets in the transmission connector might fix this code. No guarantees on that one. now that i think about it when it rained and i hit a puddle on the right hand side is when it started. would the (vcc) make my speedo go crazy and not work.
  5. Please turn off your CAPS LOCK. I'm surprised you did not report a double handfull of codes after "RAN IT ON JACK STANDS". Running the engine with the car in gear and front wheels off the ground has to the single most confusing situation for the traction control system. Traction control would be applying the brakes and the noise would be obvious. Did you open the connector and spray the contact pins and sockets? ya mad bad about the caps. i might be looking in the wrong spot i got no ideal. i did not spray them. do u know how far the wires go in to the tranny and if i can get to them
