I have an 88 Ford Taurus L wagon and something like this is happening to me. The transmission is slipping in and out of overdrive and when it does the "check engine" like goes on briefly. I still have to have it looked at so I don't know about the code. But, my car did not just quit working right away. By the way, this problem just started last week and it does appear to be getting worse.

What O2 sensor needs to be replaced on a 2000 Rodeo with code PO133 and 870 and where is it located?

P1870 is a transmission slipping code I think P0133 is the left front sensor (drivers side) but i will check on that. For the transmission code the first thing to do is service the transmission and check for debris in the pan....more than a "tablespoon" rebuild the transmission.... according to GM bulletin. Try the service and keep your fingers crossed

What happens when too much transmission fluid is put into a 2002 Lincoln LS V8?

Changing the transmission fluid in your LS should be performed by a qualified service technician. There is a fairly comprehensive procedure for servicing the transmission and it requires that the fluid be checked hot and cold. Too much fluid in your transmission will cause it to jerk when putting in and out of gear, the shifts will be choppy and it may even feel like its slipping, and finally there is an overflow valve that will cause the excess transmission fluid to leak out and onto the floor beneath the transmission. A qualified service technician will know how much fluid is enough and how to get it out.
