If your car has an automatic transmision and has a amber light burning on the instrament cluster that is shaped lick a gear, then you have a transmisoin fault and have to take it to a specialist./ If you have no lights burning on your cluster, then you iether have a airflow meter fault or a blocked exhaust system.

How to solve overheating automatic gearbox. Warning light comes on after a short hill climb and revs lock and then suddenly release and then go back to normal


I suspect you have almost ruined the transmission. Have you been driving very hard or overloaded? Have the fluid and filter changed. IF you notice a lot of metal fines in the filter, you are in need of a transmission rebuild.

Owners manual


What are you taking about?

When in your entire driving career ,did you
ever shift what I assume is an automatic transaxle

Sounds like your saying the transmission has failed
or the motor runs so poorly you can not go up a hill

Why is the vehicle not at a repair shop for all that,
if you having problems driving it?

There are no options for any automatic transmission
You put it in drive or D & leave it there

Any other position locks it into one gear, then ruins
the motor & transmission from too many RPM

2005 chrysler sebring loses power driving up hill & RPM is up high, Ive changed, spark plugs & air filter. dont know what to do.


Not sure I am following your story.
Are you saying the transmission is slipping and therefore the RPM is high even tho the road speed is not ?
Or is the transmission not upshifting to the next gear at a normal road speed ?
Is the check engine light on ?

FUEL PUMP FAILING OR YOU HAVE FAULTY TRANSMISSION TORQUE CONVERTER.CHECK FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 43 PSI OR 9 - 13 PSI. IF FUEL PRESSURE OKAY PROBLEM IN TRANSMISSION.TORQUE CONVERTER NOT LOCKING UP FOR OVER DRIVE.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITIONS IF LOOKS BLACK SMELL BURNED,REPLACE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER.CHECK TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE COULD BE OUT OF ADJUSTMENT.

I want to ;buy a 94 caprice classic, but it looks like a piece of "****". both back windows dont go down, it needs a new shock in front, and i dont know if it will over heat in the summer when i...


depends on the mileage on it...and if the price is so cheap...?
- if the actual owner had it looking like a piece of s.... it is surely not well serviced and such a big car has many parts which could go broken after 21years of service....
- the rear windows are probably only locked (child safety)
better go for a smaller, newer car if you cannot fix anything by yourself...

Car looses power up a hill


How slight was the hill and how much weight did you have in your car? When you got power back was it because you were no longer on the hill or were you going downhill?
You may just need to drop down a gear to get the power back, if you have a heavy car even slight hills can cause it to lose power especially if your in top gear. You have a "sports transmission" option (I'm pretty sure it's on all the DSG transmissions) you just need to move it across to the +/- bit and move the stick to the - to go down a gear. Otherwise you'd have to wait until your auto decides it's lost enough revs to go down a gear. Which is why I hate autos.
Otherwise it could be bad fuel or something wrong with the turbo.

Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill


Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.

High engine rev low


I would suggest an automatic transmission flush before I did anything else.
