4 Answers


check the ilde air sensor.


my dodge is doing the same thing, it's my torque converter going into lockup when it doesn't need to be. dump some trans-x in, and if the problem gets better, you know its a transmission problem


torque converter does not turn in park.


idle air sensor is fine. clean it and didnt make anything different. My grandpa worked for ford for a long time and thinks it could be the fuel pump going bad. could that be the problem?
