Question about 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 1994 Grand Prix SE it is automatic with a 3.1L Engine, the car is a coupe two door. The problem is that when i put it in Drive, the car goes fine, but when i come to a dead stop, it is in neutral, and just revs up... the only way to make it go again is to shift into 1, 2, or 3. After I shift into one of those gears, like 1, and then go into Drive again, it works like normal, shifting up again, but again when i come to a dead stop, it just revs up... I really have no idea what is going on, so here is a little bit of things that I have done since it started acting up.... I changed the back brake pads, and checked the transmission fluid, the transmission fluid was fine, and so the only major change was the brakes... If anyone has any idea, please respond.....
My car did the same thing. Look on your Transmission and find the speed sensor. Take the speed sensor out. It should only require taking off one nut. Then pull it out, the speed sensor is magnetic and can often times collect metal chips on it and that makes it unable to work properly. Once you clean it your car will be able to shift down properly because the speed sensor affects when your car shifts. Try it out. Good luck.
