Question about 1990 Chevrolet Camaro
Alright, I just got this girl about four days ago, my official first car. The previous owner stated that sometimes she sounds like she's gonna die when stopped or something along those lines. Well, I attempted to see if I could figure this out. Naturally, the car does nearly die at times when placed to a complete stop, but the reason for this is that she losses all her rpms', then suddenly, while still not moving, jumps to second, then third gear. Then goes back down to nearly dying. After this process, she seems to not answer to the gas pettle, or just goes about 5 mph when I push it, even though the rpms are high. So, is this something to do with the computer? Or the tranny? She has tranny fluid and I know she has a slight leak there in the gasket. Though, this seems like a bigger problem then a mere $30 gasket replacement. Any thoughts?
Sounds as though you may have multiple problems happening at once. I have seen overdrive solinoids cause a similar problem. BUT Unless you get it to a trans shop you will continue to guess at it. There may be PCM issues a scan will tell you if.
Fluid flush will likely cause this to get worse very quickly
