Strange problem


Recommended Posts

I have a strange problem. When under light acceleration and the converter locked up, I get what seems like a slipping under light throttle. The tach needle never jumps. It just feels like I lost traction for a brief moment. It also does this when I take off from a stop but not very often, almost feels like the wheels slipped a bit, no traction active light either. Any ideas?

With the ignition in the ON position, simultaneously depress and hold the climate control center OFF and WARMER buttons until diagnostic mode appears on the Instrument Panel Cluster (about 5 seconds). This will diagnose the problem, if any, by displaying trouble codes. To exit diagnostic mode depress the AUTO button.

A "GM Diagnostic Trouble Code List" can be found at: http://myweb.accessus.net/~090/dtcobd1.html

To find a code, simultaneously press Ctrl and F on your keyboard and type in the code. For example, search for P039 using a zero, not the letter "O."
