Pretty much tells you the system with the fault

Traction Control is embedded into the abs braking
system, so diagnose that using the codes you have,
same as any other obd codes you get

The Reduced Power could be another problem & it
cuts off fuel injectors to save the exhaust converter
from overheating & being ruined

Grand voyager all wheel drive, 3.3 V6, year 2004 Transmission shifts on and off Oil level OK, Quality of oil uncertain, changed 4 months ago Just happened : You drive a mile, then it is like the gearbox is no longer connected, and you feel like in neutral mode. Feel like a small whistle while this happens. Unable to switch to Drive, Forward, etc. Stop the engine. Start again, and you can drive for 1/2 mile. Someone on internet said: change the solenoid. Not sure. No Chr


Unfortunately, you are going to have to go to a transmission shop. If it is the transmission fluid you are speaking of when you refer to the oil, (the fluid should be fine if it was changed only 4 months ago.) Provided you used the proper fluid an ... 2001 Chrysler Voyager

I have 2004 Ford Explorer with a thumping feel and sound. When I drive over 50 mph and let it coast, the thumping starts. I feels as if it's coming from the back but not sure. The check engine light is not on. This started happening when I had all the fluids changed. I've had the tires checked and are ok. The transmission shifts gears just fine. It has 128,000 miles and drives fine except that thumping noise. It feels like I'm driving over bumps in the road then goes away if I push on the b


If your lucky, its just a u-joint going out.\015\012\015\012 try replacing the u-joint which connects the driveshaft to the rear end(differrential), and if that does not solve it, then have your differrential checked out (a bad different ... 2004 Ford Explorer

When driving 35 mph + the front end seems to bump it feels like going over a bump in the road i dont think its the transmission because it does not happen when shifting it happens more when driving up hill too. the car is a 96 cavalier four door automatic


Could be a tire out of round, or even a bad strut. Bounce the front end, if it's spring like, the strut (s) may be bad. Look for leaking of oil from them, that is a sign of a bad strut. ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

Hi everyone! Transmission question. I have a 2009 CRV with automatic tranny and I happen to have to do a ton of parallel parking.

Well the simple answer is no, your not hurting it. I would however be doing a tranny service every 6 months or so, to make sure the fluid is always fresh... The tranny will settle in and will take its time sometimes, but as long as it isnt slipping i ... 2007 Ford Fusion I4 SEL Sedan

Toyota wagon with automatic transmission drops out of drive. Shifting to neutral and back to drive fixes the problem but I feel really scared of the unpredictability of this.

My 98 chevy suburban transmission goes into failsafe shifting sometimes when driving freeway mountain roads in very cold weather. This happens usually after 3 hours of driving or so. If I turn the engine off and let it rest a bit I can resume normal shifting just like there was no problems. I had the transmission replaced two years ago when the same thing happened, only then it was in very hot weather, but again only when extended freeway driving time elapsed. I thought having the transmission r

Transmission fault When driving in low range (low gear ratio) and using my command shift feature together with the terrain response system, I sometimes get the message above which then tells me to stop safely. Then the suspension lowers. If I switch off the engine and restart the engine letting the diagnostics run first, then the error clears and I can continue. The problem is not persistent, but on a recent trip it happened about 10 times in an hour.

I own a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4WD automatic 4.0. I have been having issues with the transmission. It seems the gears are slipping at times. Last week after about 200 miles on a trip, I was going about 70 mph and suddenly it was like I had shifted into Neutral and the rpm needle went to about 4. When it happened it almost felt the way it feels when you have a flat tire. I turned the car got off waited a minute then restarted and was able to drive off the exit ramp without a proble

I have a 4.3L V6 automatic transmission at 99,000 miles. Yesterday when I started it and put it in reverse, it took a few seconds to engage into reverse. Even then, it still didn't feel fully engaged. Then shifting into Drive to pull forward, the same thing happened. While accelerating out of first gear, it didn't seem fully engaged. As soon as the truck gets moving enough to be in 2nd and other gears everything works fine. What could cause Reverse and 1st gear not to engage? Also, it was well b

1990 Nissan Stanza 2.4 Liter Engine miss. This is a used car we just bought, has 112,000 miles on it and it only happens when I put the transmission in drive or reverse. It does not happen when in park. The engine smoothes out while driving and does not seem to have any loss of power while driving under load etc. It seems to happen whether the car is cold or warmed up. The transmission shifts properly and is an automatic. What are the possible remedies? Vacuum Lines? Spark Plug Wires?


I would change the spark plugs and wires first. Please use NGK Spark Plugs, (Nissan's do not like any other brand) try that and see what happens,\015\012\015\012I would also change the fuel filter and check the air filter to see if it us ... 1990 Nissan Maxima

Transmission problem I have a 97 GMC jimmy, the transmission shiftrs fine until we have drove it for a period of a time, then it shifts hard out of first into second, aftere that it shifts and drives fine, also this vehicle has been on two vacations, it shifts hard only after you stop and start again . have been driving for 2 years, my mechanic put in some transmissioner tuner 2 years ago, saqid to drive it, also doesnt happen all the time, doesnt do it in the winter time


Sounds like an issue when fluid gets hot, I'd start with a filter/fluid change.\015\012\015\012I personally shy away from tranny additives, use only as a last resort to get a vehicle drivable to trade in (on a cash for clunkers program. ( ... 1997 GMC Jimmy

Hello. Recently on my 2009 CRV I have noticed some slight diffrences in the transmission. Lately I can feel every single shift, I can even feel it shifting into 4rth and 5th gear. I can't hear anything though. Also when shifting into gear there appears to be about a second delay in the transmission engaging. Sometimes when shifting from drive to reverse it sounds a bit louder than other times. What is odd is that sometimes it will shift smoother than others. I took it to honda dealershift

Check tranny fluid level and make sure you put in the correct fluid.HONDA SPECIFIC tranny fluid only. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

When the car is started and then shifted into drive you can feel it engage. It will move forward and even seems to shift properly until the transmission warms up. Once it warms up and you stop it will not move forward after it is put into drive. If you do get it to move forward it will not shift out of first gear no matter how fast you go or how slow. I changed the transmission fluid and filter and it seemed to work fine and shift properly for probably less then 20 miles then it reverted back to

Transmission shifts from 3rd to what seems like neutral while driving (engine revs, but no acceleration). Happens around 35-40 mph and shift fine from 1-2 and 2-3, but won't shift 3-4, always goes into this netural state. It's an Automatic Transaxle, 1.5L SOHC, and the transmission has always had rough downshifts but nothing to this extreme. Is this a sensor, since it always happens, or is it something bigger?
