The trans won't cause it to die. Try changing the fuel filter.

How do you change the transmission oil filter on a G35 coupe?

What is wrong with a 1997 SC2 that starts and idles OK until the transmission is in gear and the car is moving then the engine speeds up until the car stops moving and the transmission is in neutral?

If the transmission is in neutral and the engine is racing would indicate that your throttle body cable is binding somewhere. Check the assembly, check by the gas pedal. I have checked with a dealer on the same problem. I have a 96 sc2 and it does the same thing. They told me it idles down due to the engine computer. They said if it is cold outside it will idle high like this. Once it started getting warm outside mine stopped doing this. Please let me know if you have found out anything. Mine was doing the same thing. I changed the temp sensor and it worked. yours is probably cracked.

A flashing D4 light indicates a problem with the transmission. It may just need the transmission fluid changed or it may be a more serious problem.

Where is the dip stick for the transmission on a1998 jetta?

There is no dip stick on this vehicle for the transmission. There is a plug you remove that you fill it in one hole until it pours out the cap on the front of the transmission. You are supposed to remove the plastic cap before filling and then replace it with a new one. I always reuse the old one never had a problem.

What does a flashing overdrive indicator mean What is the fix?

It means you have an electronic transmission control problem. Quite possibly a shift solenoid in the transmission. It will be impossible to determine a fix until the system is scanned and diagnosed to find out what is wrong. It could be your vehicle speed sensor.

1998 accent that doesn't shift into over drive until you drive it for a ways Sometimes as far as ten miles after it does kick in it will be okay unless you let the car sit for a couple of hours?

A 1998 Accent that doesn't shift into Overdrive until driven a few miles probably has a transmission slippage problem. It could also mean the transmission is low on fluid, or the fluid and transmission screen need to be changed.

What would cause the automatic transmission not to shift until engine is fully warm?

Had problem with 86 Lincoln not shifting properly when cold. I assumed it was because the fluid was thicker and would be more affected by a clogged filter. I had the transmission flushed and the filter cleaned and it worked perfectly from then on.

How do you stop a 1997 manual transmission Plymouth Breeze from idling high in neutral until you come to a complete stop and then idles down?

Spray down the throttle body outside to clean it & prevent anything from sticking there. Then while the engine is running spray inside intake as long as possible without stalling the engine. This should do it.

Is it okay to put bars transmission repair oil?

While it may be okay to put Bars into your transmission system. It is NOT recommended. Eventually the stop leak material builds up in you shift valve passages and causes your transmission to enter "Limp Mode". This makes your transmission run poorly until you get it serviced which can cost quite a bit more than just fixing the original problem properly.

Why does your 93' dodge spirit run fine until you hit 45 mph then it revs real load and wont go any faster?

The transmission is shot. It probably also makes a really high pitched sound at low speeds? You need a new transmission or a rebuild.

What is the problem when the car leaks transmission fluid and starts but won't go anywhere?

The transmission needs fluid to propel the car. If there's no fluid, you're going nowhere. Fill it up, and find the source of the leak. It could be a transmission seal, or maybe it's as simple as a damaged line from the rad. Don't try to move the vehicle at all until the transmission is full of fluid. You could burn out the transmission, causing a very costly repair.
