Oldgamer Posted July 11, 2005 Report Share Posted July 11, 2005 Hi guys, I know I should to do at least some "homework" before posting here, but just can't keep it until tomorrow. It's happening yesterday around midnight on a way home from my sister's birthday party. Right before Outerbridge Cr was stop and go traffic (as usual). A little later, still before the bridge, I noticed unusual noise (my window was down) and engine hesitation. I noticed that when I depress the gas pedal RPMs goes high but car speed barely raise. So, I touch the gas pedal just a bit, to try not to make a slip and get home. Without stopping I tried to check brake pedal position just in case. I didn't get any computer messages. I didn't stop the engine, turn computer on, read the codes, but nothing was current. Code P036 and P044 were in history. I drove home as carefull as possible (I was just around 5 miles from home). I tried to change gears to 3rd and 2nd but didn't noticed a difference. What I noticed that was unusual sound and that transmission behaved like there was no VCC lock. When I put car into garage it was around midnight, I was dressed up and didn't try to check anything. I know, it's no excuse for forgetting to check transmission fluid level at least. And I know I checked it a long time ago and it was more on a low side. But how come I didn't check it yesterday right away? Can't excuse myself. I hope I didn't toast my transmission (no computer codes related to transmission), don't want even to think about it. I Hope it's just a low transmission fluid level, but that noise... It's driving me crazy. Engine runs stable in idle. Tomorrow I will be at home all day and try to do everything you guys tell me to do. I don't think it is related to the problem some how, but just in case... I filled around 12 gallons of gas the same day. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
