    Thank you. It seems like it has been getting poor mileage lately too.
    I replaced the plugs at about 30,000 miles. The factory only had the original plugs
    finger tight. I haven't replaced the wires though so I'll do that.
    Also have you heard of a problem with the wheels corroding so that the tires won't
    hold air well? Or is this just BS my tire company is giving me? If this is such a wide
    spread problem why isn't there a recall?

Transmission fluid should have no effect on your steering wheel vibrating when stopped in drive. I would explore more into a possible skip in the engine.

BOTH CV AXLES & TORQUE AXLE REPLACED. UPON ACELL GET VIBRATION GOES AWAY AT ABOUT 25MPH. WHERE IS VIBRATION COMING FROM?


Check for a worn universal joint on the drive shaft going to the rear wheels.

Check your transmission fluid level. (Low level can cause vibration on acceleration.)

Check to see if your transmission filter needs changing.

Does it only vibrate under heavy acceleration?

A transmission problem would not make the steering wheel vibrate. Have you ever had the Transfer Case fluid changed? This is required every 50K miles. A qualified transmission technician should evaluate your problem.

Steering wheel vibration at speeds above 50mph


this could be a few things. if the odor was of rotton eggs...it's either a broken/loose motor mount that shakes the exhaust system causing the catalyitic converter to make that smell, or, in a worse case, its your transmission overheating and burning up ATF (automatic transmission fluid) and this is causing the torque converter plates to rotate out of harmony with each other causing the vibration. if the smell is more a burnt rubber, it's much more likely you have a timing issue or a worn main bearing on your crankshaft. this causes vibration and wear on the belts causing them to "burn" or emit that burnout smell. either way, take it to your mechanic right away because none of these problems will end well if left unattended. good luck!

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

CAR VIBRATES DURING ACCALERATION AT 30-60MPH


When was the last time you had a wheel balance and alignment?? Most shaking occurs because of mis-alignments and wheels out of balance. If you need an alignment I suggest a 4-wheel alignment versus a 2-wheel alignment.
If these have been done: Based on the year 1993 and the amount of driving:
When was the last time the ball joints, tie rod joints and wheel bearings were checked or inspected?? Any one of these three (or combination) could also cause vibrations.
Is your Transmiision Fluid at the correct level. When was the last time the fluid and filter were changed?
Check the above first before any drastic conclusions.
The A604 Transmission has had many problems. One of which is a fluttering valve inside the solenoid unit, causing rough (shuddering) accelerations. Some of these were solved by merely changing the fluid and/or filter. I do not recommend the Fushing method due to the fact the filter is not changed.

How to prevent the transmission from damage
(The filter usually is screen type and can be cleaned when remove bottom cover. but this is not to be done at regular maintenance inspection.)
- Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn't matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious.
- Once in a while check the transmission fluid level and condition. Not all cars however have the automatic transmission dipstick, in some cars, for example, in late Volkswagen models, the transmission fluid can only be checked by the dealer. Consult with your owner's manual for details. If the transmission fluid level is too low, there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.
- Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner's manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
Also, keep in mind that an automatic transmission can not be drained completely - there is always some transmission fluid left inside the transmission (the torque converter, in the valve body, etc.) which means you only can change about %60 of the fluid at once. This is one more reason to change it more often.

- Use only the same type of the transmission fluid as specified in the owner's manual or on the dipstick. Some vehicles (e.g Dodge Caravan) are very sensitive to fluid type
- Never shift to the Reverse or Parking until the car comes to a complete stop.
- Never shift from the Parking mode when engine rpm is higher than normal idle.
- Always hold a brakes down when shifting from Parking.
- The automatic transmission can be damaged if towing with the drive wheels on the road. Always use a dolly or place powered wheels on the towing platform (if the vehicle is front wheel drive - tow it from the front leaving rear wheels on the road.
