Sounds like you have yourself a bad shift solenoid pack this is mounted on the front of the transmission under a thick rubber boot and has an 8 or 10mm bolt holding a plug into it, these usually fail hot as it is an electronically controlled solenoid and there are tiny little springs and magnets inside that can stick also while you are in there do yourself a favor and change the two speed sensors on the transmission they are about $22 each and can also cause the problem you are explaining. the shift solenoid pack is about $120 on ebay and some sellers actually sell them along with the input and output speed sensors you may try changing those first and see if it solves it but i have a feeling your solenoid pack is failing also when you change these parts it may take the computer a few trips to relearn shift points but you'll know it fixed it right off the bat.. please rate and good luck -jeff

Testimonial: "I replaced the starter. This job is quite substantial. Also found the nut connecting the cable to the starter coil was not tight. I think it is fixed."

Hi! I strongly suggest that you have a PCM (powertrain control module) reset. The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine, transmission, accessories, etc. It's like a car's brain that when it's faulty everything else fails. If the PCM can't be resetted specially when it's heavily damaged. I suggest that you have it replaced to get rid of all the troubles. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Hello anonymous freezing girl.

The one thing that will do precisely what you describe is a

Typically located at the engine end of your to
RADIATOR HOSE... b'twix $10 & $20 USD...

For MOST all engines to run efficiently... they must
reach & maintain an operating temperature of 180 °F
(Fahrenheit)... Temperatures vary by engine size...

87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid

It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)

My 99 suburban wont start without starting fluid

I had same problem. Engine will start if you crank it for awhile. This is because the fuel pump has a . check valve that is supposed to keep fuel from running back into tank and hold fuel at pressure so it will start immediately. If valve leaks it takes awhile for fuel to be pumped back up to injectors. Replacing fuel pump fixed my problem.
