Yes, but so will bad grounds, low voltage, corroded wiring, out of spec sensors, etc. you just can't start throwing parts at hoping you might find the problem. Take it to a shop you trust and get it checked out.

I did and they said replace the tranny, so I replaced the tranny with another one, and it still does it.


Agree with tennisshoe,if the ECM is bad it would shoot alot of code,s,,go have it checked.
