Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
Engine idles smoothly in park, when put in gear, a clunk is felt and excessive vibration occurs. Sometimes when slowing for a stop, the vibration worsens and the engine stalls. Putting the car in neutral it will start right up and idle, but when putting the car in gear, it will immediately stall again. Letting the car cool down for a while, it will be fine, until full warm-up then situation recurs. This is a 1994 chevy cavalier
The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
