Question about 1995 Geo Tracker

1 Answer

1996 geo tracker think I need a new transmission???

I have a 4 door 1996 automatic geo tracker. Some times it runs like a dream, but more often than not when I go for the stoping possition it will sometimes stall or have a problem shifting. It will Idle up and down and make quiet a bit of noise If you push on the gas it will some times stop but usually it will stop once you get up to 25 miles an hour. I am thinking that I need a new transmission, but could it be something else. I just want to be informed before I go to a mechanic. It was just serviced and passed inspection a month ago. Also sometimes when I start the car the engine light is on as well as the o/d off light. Sometimes the o/d off light will flash but then other times neither of them are lit. An information will be great. And estimated costs would be helpful as well. Thank you ahead of time!!!

Cost ? your kidding?

the CEL lamp glows (check engine lamp)
says Fault in the engine controls or tranny.
the OD lamp only flashes to warn of tranny malfunciton.

any mechanic can pull the codes and so can Auto zone for free.

get the codes and post them
or go to the mechanic and ask for diagnosis and just an estimate.

it all depend on the codes and how tranny shifts.
you could , on the other and get a full power flush of the tranny with a new filter and pray.

you skipped that step at 100k miles right?
