You Are Putting To Much Load On Your Engine. When It Starts To Stall Drop It Into Regular Drive. Also You Need To Drive At Slow Speeds In Regular Drive. At Speeds Say Around 50 MPH You Can Use OD. By Allowing Your Car To Slug Around In Overdrive You Are Doing Your Transmission In Amoung Other Things. Your Car Was Not Designed To Run This Way. Stay Out Of Overdrive At Slow Speeds. This Should Solve Your Problem. If This Does`nt Have A Good Tune UP.

1984 was a good year for the Chevy Celebrity. It was in 1984 that the Eurosport option first came out as well as the introduction of the station wagon.

One is a standard four door sedan, one is a Eurosport coupe with the "Z" engine and the third is a Eurosport convertible. The convertible version may be one of the rarest Celebrity models produced with as few as 200 being made.

I don't know what the thing you speak of is, it doesn't sound like something either of my 1988 Chevy Celebrities have. I would suggest that you go to a wrecking yard and see if you can find your replacement there. It doesn't have to be from a Eurosport as long as it is the same engine.
