SOURCE: trans problem

OK this is a very common problem. there is a 4 pin connector on the trans. (just below the air box area sometimes blue or grey)(in a shape of a box) that is your TCC soleniod switch connector. just dissconnect that and see what happens. if your problem stops then you need a TCC solenoid. what that does is it locks up your converter at 40mph+ or HWY speeds to save on gas. another way to test it is when your slowing down and it feels like your driving a stick shift and it wont get out of gear and stalls. if that is what is happing thats your problem. just dissconnect it if you want but i remomend getting it fixed. DO NOT REBUILD TRANS. many trans shops try and pull a rebuild on this.

SOURCE: 4l60e slips in 3rd and 4th

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

SOURCE: Car gets warm and starts hesitating on acceleration

Hi,
this could be something in the fuel pump. As the cold motor draws more fuel, it may just be just ok for the engine, but after it is warm, it draws less and may "suffocate" it that way. Same goes for air filter, take a peek if it is not ready for replacement. Has this happened suddenly, or has it occurrend during a long perion of time?

SOURCE: ticking when cold

It could also be the infamous "Piston Slap" common in 1999-2002's.
GM "standardized" pistons or something like that and they did not fit the cylinders tight enough. The pistons "slap" the cylinder walls and make a tapping sound for the first few minutes until the pistons expand to fit. GM would not fix it and says it does not hurt the longevity of the motor ( yeah ri--ght! ) Do a google search for piston slap.
Oil level would help if it is a lifter ticking but will do nothing if it is the pistons slapping the walls. My 02 silverado has been doing this since almost new and the above description is straight from GM and a few visits to the dealership while under warranty.

I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma. During the last 2 months when I start the truck in the morning I hear a "tac, tac, tac, tac ...." noise for 30s to 1 min than it stops when I drive away. This...


This is most likely a noisy lifter (or valve tappet). In cold weather, the clearances in the valve train open up because metal contracts due to the cold. Once the oil pressure comes up after start the noise goes away because the larger clearance fills with oil and the lifter becomes "cushioned" with the oil. The proper fix is to have the valves adjusted. I believe in your model, that is done by putting shims on the lifters. This will quiet the noisy lifters. In the short term, you can try using a lighter weight oil for cold weather. This will get the oil to the lifters faster after start up and quiet the tapping more quickly. Once the weather warms again, shift back to the normal weight.

When I start-up the engine and put it in drive, I could feel the car raise up. what happened; it does not do it any more. Lincoln LS 2002 -V6


That feeling of raising up,only happens when your foot is on the brake and you pull up on the Electronic Parking Brake.

Also what you discribe,could be caused by starting the engine and immediately putting it in gear,before allowing the idle to come down.

I never start any vehicle and drive away. Even in warm weather I let the vehicle warm up about three minutes or more and drive slow for a couple of miles ,until it is in closed loop. That's when the O2 Sensor takes over and controls the fuel system. So forget about saving fuel by leaving on a cold engine. That is nonsense and not fact or theory based.
