The TCC solenoid in the transmission needs to be replaced. It is under the side cover. It controls the converter to lock up for better fuel mileage. If you want to drive car until you get it fixed you can un-plug the connector going to the transmission on the front of transmission. This will keep it from going to lock up mode and keep it from stalling until you can fix it. Common problem.

I just had to have the A/C compressor replaced and now the engine seems to surge at hiway speeds. More so when cruise control is engaged. Is there any connection to the replacement and the engine problem?...


There is no points on this model,but if you are running the ac on low fan speed,it will cycle on,and off to keep it from freezing up,or the ac has a restriction in the orifice tube,and is making the ac compressor cycle on,and off,or there is not enough freon in the system,and this also,will cause the compressor to cycle on,and off,try freon maybe.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Dirt may have got onto the O2 sensor, this could cause a surge without the light coming on. Some debris may be on a sensor preventing the computer from making correct adjustments.....

Try putting your transmission in neutral and slowly shifting the 4wd selector to each position but you have to wait a few seconds between selsctions as it has to go through your vehicles computer, shifting to fast will cause your symptoms. I hope this helped you out. Roger

The idle drops when i put it in gear almost stalling the engine


That is normal, in park or neutral there is no resistance on the engine when you put it in gear there is resistance because the car wants to move. Also when you turn on the ac that turns on the compressor that is run off the belts of the engine so it puts more resistance on the engine. Low idle is not a problem unless the engine dies.

check your air gap on the compressor pulley where the clutch and pulley meet. you should be able to fit a postcard in between it. if thats good then check your tensioner. there should be lines on it to tell if its wore out
