There haven't been modulator valves in transmissions since they started putting computers in cars but it was a good guess. It could be one of three things that I can think of. 1) It may be a loose wire on one of the computer sensors in or on the transmission, 2) one of these could be a loose or defective, 3) And I hope I'm wrong on this one. There may be a bad internal seal which won't allow the internal pump to build enough pressure to keep it in gear. If this the problem, get rid of it before it gets worse, get it fixed before you drive it much more or drive it as little as possible as every time it shifts in and out it damages the internal clutch packs and low gear band. This happened to my 2001 Windstar. At the point that I traded it in, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears would shift alright but it wouldn't stay in 4th, (overdrive). It would shift in and out of 4th at random. Good luck. Jeff M.

The V6 and V8 models are mounted on the side of the throttle body.
They don't turn on, its an electric motor that opens and closes a valve to regulate the air into the throttle body.

I have a 94 chevy lumina it idles high in park and when i put it in gear it stalls i have replaced (one of the o2 sencers, egr vaule, map sencer, trottle sencer, and another sencer but not sure what it is....

throttle position sensor can cause the high idle as will a hole in the egr valve tube as far as stalling as soon as u put in to gear could be torque converter not unlocking but id check the egr tube first

2000 LINCON ls spits,hesitate,go out of gear,stalls,check trans

A couple of things worth checking out:
  1. If it only hesitates and stalls when its cold and smooths out when its warm, I'd check the MAP sensor and TPS
  2. If it's sluggish all the time and stalling, it's very possibly the catalytic converter
Hope this helps diagnose your problem. Best of luck.

Idling high or stuck while driving

make sure the plantum gasket up underneath the throttle body is good and make sure all vacuum lines are connected especially the vacuum line behind the throttle body
