About once per week, over the last two months, however getting more frequent, our car, 2002 Ford Falcon XR6 AUIII (Australia), will develop a vibration which appears to be under the car beneath the auto transmission and continues to the rear of the car. At the same time the vehicle appears to want to be held back from moving forward. Can occur at 80-100 km/h or at a crawling speed coming around a corner on to another road at an intersection. It does not matter if one is driving in a straight line, or turning a corner, left or right. or it does not matter of the car has been running for many kms, or just started up and driving around the corner to the shops. Everything underneath the car seems okay, no loose pipes, shockers, etc. In all cases the auto tans is in Drive. If the problem occurs, moving the selector to third will stop the problem and then moving back to Drive and everything is okay. The problem does not occur frequently enough to be able to get a mechanic to experience the problem and then suggest a fix. Someone suggested it is the Limited Slip Diff which needs an oil change and an additive added. However, this car does not have a LSD, and also it is not the IRS model. I am assuming the problem is from the auto trans, but I could be wrong. The vehicle has travelled 123000kms from new. The trans fluid was changed at 90000kms, at a major service. Orto, does this sound like an auto trans problem? (when selecting a model for this forum, XR6 or Falcon is not available, so I selected ZX2, so that I could continue)
The first thing i would do is check the auto trans fluid, its a 16mm plug on the left of the gearbox fill it up untill fluid spills out then you know its full, also if it is full check the filter for the trans by taking the auto trans pan of, the filter will be just insid were the pan covers, its meant to be a clean redish colur if its black id recomend changing it. its only held in by a wire clip and an o-ring. the auto fluid in an AU auto is TQ 95.

Have you checked repalced the battery since you had the car. I had a G6E turbo and a few times i had the same issue, I also had Engine Immobilized come up a few times even tho i could still just start my car.. Once i got a new battery i did not have an issue
It is low battery voltage. It's a common problem with late model falcons, being more demanding on battery voltage. The original batteries were only warranted for 12 months and were not really up to the task. Your best solution is replace it with a good quality higher capacity battery, around the 600CCA range. This is also true for the bf falcons. Generally when the battery is starting to die you will get airbag errors popping up for a few weeks then after a while it will immobilise.
