I had a BMW with the same problem, I
know its not the same car but it turned
out the battery was too low of a voltage.
Replaced it and its run fine ever since.

Check engine control units and trans
control units. Make sure all connectors
have no damage or corrosion. Also if
can pull into a shop right after it does it
they should be able to run a scanner on
it and look for trouble codes. Hope this
puts you in the right direction, thanks.

My 06 Chevy Malibu lt traction control light comes on when I put it in drive. Transmission started long hard shift same time?!??


Sounds like something broke. My older car is starting to do strange things also. I was told that the new cars are more electronics in the transmission to control shifting. and only a good mechanic or transmission shop will be able to read the codes to find the defective part. hopefully it is just a part that can be replaced with the transmission on the car. I suggest getting a referral from your mechanic.

The Transmission shifts very hard after the first shift. Check engine light is on as well as the Green overdrive light blinks off and on. Speed sensor was cleaned and even replaced.


Your on the right track. Have you scanned the PCM, what codes did you get? If not and you changed the vehicle speed sensor,(VSS) did you check the (OSS) output shaft speed sensor, it will cause torque converter lock up and hard shifting and that pesky OD light flashing. I have also found that clutch packs inside auto tranny's dry out. Ford and some aftermarket companies sell a fluid that will recondition the clutch packs.

Why would my auto transmission get hard to shift?


Not knowing what car you have I'll say your problem might come from the linkage cable rather than transmission, look for the routing from the
firewall to the trans.

The torque converter may be shot.

The main Transmission fluid pump may be shot.

The electricals to the solenoids may be disconnected or relays maight not be functioning.

Look for drips of oil and listen for strange sounds coming from it.

Chevy Impala can't shift out of park


sometimes this happens if the brake light switch is broken - the car thinks that you do not have your foot on the brake, so will not shift out of park . strange however about the ABS light being on. i would get a garage to get the fault codes read

1998 Park Avenue Drivers window seems to twist slightly when going down, stopping the window, usually within the first inch or two. this only happens sometimes, and does not depend on weather or temp. do...


Sounds like a track problem. It happens sporadically because the track will occasionally align itself when the window is closed, allowing you to open the window normally but will work itself away fromthe door after you open it. You probably hear a strange noise when closing the window. The track needs repair. This will require opening the door panel to secure the track or replace it altogether.
