    Thanks emmissionwiz, I forgot to mention that the pan has been dropped and fluid and filter checked by a friend,who said everything looked OK. Could the problem be in shifter adjustment, or sensors, or whatever tells the tranny what to do? Are there any fuses related to proper operation? Helpagain??????

Try dropping the pan and changing the filter and fluid 1st, if that is no help then u will need to get a trans shop involved.

1991 plymouth acclaim 3.0l v6 mitsubishi engine approx. 78,000 miles. sometimes but not all the time the engine will cut off when you come to a stop. it will crank up but will stall when stopping again,...


I'd pull the AIS motor ( automatic idle speed ) of side of throttle body and give it and the port it comes out of a good spray of throttle body cleaner, especially the Pintle ( pointed part) and re-install it and try it. If it cures it great, and if it starts to act up again a while down the road, replace it. Also referred to as IAC sometimes.( automatic idle control)

if it sits there and seems to rev up and down, it is probably your throttle position sensor. Mine acted up very bad, expecially when leaving the highway back into city driving when at a stop sign.

My 1991 Plymouth acclaim is having trany problems the forward gears do work all the time only when it wants to what can i do to fix the problem


Transmissions are tricky, 1991 is an older vehicle so your best bet is to take it to a tranny specialist. Some solutions you put in the tranny case do help a little but its not a long term fix. Be prepared tranny repairs run from 600.00 to 1800.00 on average and on a 91 it may not be worth it.
