While we're talking different manufacturers, there could be a similar design problem: 1990 through 1996 Ford Crown Victorias have an occasional problem with the transmission locking up after the car sits with hazard lights flashing. Seems the fuse that powers the flashers also powers the electric overdrive on the 'Police Interceptor' package Crown Vics. The fuse gets hot, burns out and, not only do the hazard lights stop flashing, the tranny won't come out of 'Park', until the fuse is replaced. With lots of patience (and a few foul words), you can at least get the car to a shop by doing the following:
- Turn off the engine. - With your foot on the brake, wiggle the ignition lock and the shift lever at the same time, until you get the selector into 'Neutral'. - The car should start in 'Neutral' and then you can shift into whatever gear you need (Not 'Park'!)to drive it to a shop.
I had this problem with my 1994 Bonneville SE. would try checking the transmission fluid level(that was the problem with mine). If the transmission fluid level is where it's supposed to be then it could be that the transmission is going out or you may need to check the torque converter. I think that can also cause the problem.
crankshaft position censor
i just farted,how can i stop farting cause it smells like egg salad sometimes
no way that will not cause anything with the transmission by the way im 11 but my granda helped me out he used to own a garge of his own.
degradation of the coolant. flush the system and refill it, and all should be well.
Yes, a catalytic converter can cause a vehicle to vibrate and stall. It will do this when it gets plugged because it causes the fuel mix to be disturbed.
Check a wiring diagram for your Bonneville (Mitchell, or Chilton) Most likely a blower relay stuck in on position.
Idle speed too high.
GM cars of this era had about 43psi of fuel pressure. As you probably suspect the most common cause of your problem is a bad fuel pump.
If the transmission is an automatic, the electronic controls or internal problems could be the cause. If it is a straight drive, then the most common cause is a bent or worn shifter fork.
broken transmission mount there is a front left, rear left and a center mount
sounds like a motor mount is broken or a transmition mount. have those checked.
Linkage needs adjustment?
The cause is most likely electrical, with a possible chaffed wire, loose connector connection or loose ground wire leading to the engine, transmission or elsewhere.
I read that bad motor mounts can cause this knocking sound
the most likely cause is a flat battery and or dirty battery terminals check all electrical connections from battery to starter (hope this helps)
It is located in the fuse box under the plastic cover at the bottom of the dash. Make sure you don't have any burned out bulbs, as sometimes that will cause the others not to flash.
either a blown fuse or bad wiring and even possibly a bad control module or a partially faulty one too.
I don't think so. The automatic transmission is controlled by engine speed, vehicle speed and throttle position. A large vacuum leak could effect throttle position, but it would cause other problems more noticable than the effect on transmission shifting. a vacuum leak mpuld not cause trasmission to slip but a band inside transmission would cause the problem
Automatic transmissions are complex components with hundreds of soft, hard, and electronic parts. Diagnosing your transmission issue is based on symptoms, road tests, inspection of the vehicle and or running diagnostic for OBDII error codes. Causes of problems can range from the need for new fluid, to indications an overhaul/rebuild/replacement may be soon required.
The squeak while running is a curious problem that I have run into also. As it turns out it is, in the case of my vehicle, caused by the air conditioning compressor clutch. As the vehicle sits, the electronic clutch plates gather oxidization - when the vehicle is run the oxidation causes the squeak, while the plates are running with each other. There is no known cure for this ailment, but it will not cause any failures.
ok im not a 100% sure on this, but check your power steering fluid. on newer vihicles the power steering actually has something that affects the transmission. it could eventually cause it to go in to what is called a "lope mode". and i will pretty much just stay in second gear and wont shift out. Is your Bonneville supercharged? If the supercharger is going out it will also whine.
I now have the answer (no thanks to this forum)
It seems to me that it could be the transmission going bad I am not 100% sure. Visit www.siennaclub.org I am sure you can get better answers there.
There are more possibilities than the mind can imagine.Take it to a repair shop and have them inspect the underside. It could be the engine mounts, they might need replacing, check them first.
