What is wrong? cheapest fix

as these numbers are dodge fault codes ill assume that's what you have , both of these codes refer to a low to no oil pressure condition , this has several causes an can be as simple as low oil level to a bad sensor (behind alternator) to at worst a bad oil pump

since this is a oil pressure loss fault its stored as a major fault an will require a reset of ecm before it will allow a engine restart (after resolving problem) it does this to prevent engine failure for no lubrication

I rencently had the same problem. Lasted a week or two before it threw a code. Ended up just being a camshaft position sensor. Replaced sensor, now it runs like new. Just be careful with the crankcase breather hose, it's very brittle!

Tourque converter not locking up

The torque converter clutch (TCC) inside the torque converter, also referred to as the "damper clutch" or "lockup clutch", functions to lock the input and output sections of the torque converter together to provide improved fuel economy.
If you are servicing a transaxle with either of the following conditions, follow the repair procedure shown below:
^ Torque converter clutch does not engage when driving at steady speed on the highway. ^ Engine stalls when coming to a stop or when shifting into Drive or Reverse

1. Check the ATF level when the engine is idling in "N" according to TSB 01-40-013. Adjust the ATF level as needed.

. Attach the Hi-Scan Pro and check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) in both the "ENGINE" and "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" menus. If the DTC shown are found, follow the repair procedure shown. If no DTC are found, go to Step 3.
3. Using the Hi-Scan Pro, select "HYUNDAI VEHICLE DIAGNOSIS", "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" and "CURRENT DATA" menus, then "OIL TEMPERATURE" or "FLUID TEMPERATURE". Confirm the oil temperature readout is correct as shown. If not, replace the oil temperature sensor.dak408_10.jpg
4. Using the Hi-Scan Pro, select: ^ "HYUNDAI VEHICLE DIAGNOSIS" menu ^ "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" menu ^ "CURRENT DATA" menu ^ THROTTLE P. SENSOR, "TCC SOLENOID DUTY", "TCC SLIP" and "OIL TEMPERATURE" ^ F2 - "SCRN". This will isolate the top four data to allow a quicker refresh rate for the data. dak408_18.gif
Check the TCC data under the conditions shown in the table. If the TCC data indicate as shown, the torque converter and damper clutch are operating correctly. If not, go to Step 5.

5. If the TCC data does not indicate as shown or the engine stalls, follow the repair procedure shown.
6. If the engine stalls when shifting into Reverse or Drive, the oil cooler may be restricted. Disconnect the oil cooler hoses to the oil cooler in the radiator. Bypass the oil cooler as shown. It the condition: ^ Does not recur, replace the radiatorRecommend finding a certified Transmission mechanic if you are unable to complete these test using a scanner.

I have a F250 lariat with a 460 - truck stalls when I put it in gear - even after it runs for 20 min. Sometimes it will stall while I'm driving. I had carborator replaced last year. Hope you can help.

Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

2002 Alero shifting hard

I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero and my car was running rough and stalling. Also when the car was shifting, it was making a "thud" sound. My service engine light was on, so I took it to Autozone to run their diagnostic tool. It came back with code P0108 and they advised me to check my vacuum hoses as a possible solution. I looked and found that my air hose running from my throttle body to my map sensor was disconnected. I reconnected the hose and the engine ran normally and didn't make any "thud" sound when shifting. My car is back to normal. So check your hoses. If its still running rough, you may need to replace your map sensor.
