Question about Cars & Trucks
Have the agent reset the inmobilizer but the car start and runs for 30 seconds and dies
Hi Henry, Without knowing the make and year of the vehicle I'm shooting in the dark, but maybe on target? On recent vehicles, even back as far as the mid nineties there are a number of electrical and electronic management connections to the gear box. it could be you're dealing with a bad connection or damaged circuit. Check the area where the recent work was carried out. Regards John

It sounds like maybe the torque converter might not be fully seated into the trans, try taking it out and re install and turn the converter clockwise then counterclockwise while keeping pressure on the front of the conv. until you feel three little clicks or thuds. When it is fully seated you should barely be able to get your fingers between the the bell housing and the converter. while you have the converter out check the front pump seal again for damage if it looks chewed replace it put some trans fluid on the hub that goes into trans, the shiney part then slide it in. Hope that helps also when installing the trans make sure you tighten the bellhousing bolts first then do the torque converter bolts, that way you won't accidently unseat the conv. You have to turn the flywheel to get to all the bolts make sure everything is tight and good luck.
