First of all, change the o02 sensor so the control mod is not getting mixed signals. How does your cat con check out for free flow?. and last but less likely is the maf sensor. I think its the powertrain controll mododule.. It controls Converter lockup, shift patterns fuel and all sorts of things. Replace the 02 sensor, Disconnect your bat neg for a few minutes and see what happens when you start it up again. Good Luck, Ned

I once owned a trans repair shop-
if your trans fluid was in any way other than
pink,your trans may as well come out
and be rebuilt

You have coil misfires as you know,several shown,
most likely only 1 real bad one.

You have O2 sensor codes as well as MAF

The only issue you have is to find the bad
You can't do that buy the codes you have
You have to walk a new coil till you find the
really bad one or get professional help
Don't count on them getting it right

After the misfire and coil issues are solved
there are other thing that can be looked into

I could fix this for you but that's not an internet

I definitely would stay away from a dealer.

Why was the trans let go until the fluid was
Not to be hurtful -but it is a well known fact
for decades, that trans fluid and power steering
fluids get changed every 30,000 miles on ALL
vehicles and never past 3 years.

Wish I could have been there sooner, before you
got it or since.

1.Can a flashing hold light/faulty mass air flow sensor burn the clutches in a transmission? 2.if vehicle reves out after changing into second gear and transmission is rebuilt and problem still persist...

The ecm would not cause this, it sounds like someone did a poor rebuild, if the engining is reving and the car doesnt what to go then the clutches may be bad, a mass are flow would not cause a trany to go bad, the flashing hold light is a problem but should not be happening after the trany was just rebuilt, something is not right here, the trany was just rebuilt and now the hold light flashes and the motor rev going into 2nd gear, that trany has problems a bad ecm wouuldnt cause this slipping reving problem you are having , i would have a trany shop check to see if that trany was really rebuit.

first thing is to make sure trany fluid is full,start engine and check while in park,if oil level is good then i would have to say trany is bad,usually the motors are pretty good,those cars are famous for trany problems take it to a trany shop and have it checked out. good luck.

Intermitten hard shift 1-2, 2-3, flare shift into 4th

The trani is electronically controlled. without a diagnostic computer you are not going to know. It may be the speed sensors (for the trani.) but thats a guess. how long since the last trani service. Fluid level and condition can affect its perfomance. Good luck.
