TCC solenoid, idle control sensor, fuel filter, or temp sensor; Which should I be concerned with and consider replacing?
The car is a 2.0L, 4cyl Pontiac Sunbird. The car handles poorly when coming off of high
speeds on high temp days.It eventually stalls at low speed or when stopped. When
restarting it idles fine but stalls in gear. It restarts and drives when left to sit appx. 15
minutes. Any Suggestions?
yes. replace all black butyl rubber vacuum hoses with silicone ones (the kind that BMW and police cruisers use) will find them at summit racing and even advance auto sells gates silicone~
these have gotten old and crusty and crackin', suckin' air and playin' hell with performance...in my experience will run lean and hot and not idle correctly...it's just vacuum, man~
they are available from many places and in a variety of colors~....but more expensive, but....you will only have to do this job once~
I'll check the vacuum thanks. Judge_roy, what do you know and think of the TCC solenoid? How difficult is it to get to and replace. What would the symptoms be for this piece?
will try to find a cartoon for us to look at and try to understand~
...oh it's definitely electrical~
okay PWM is pulse-width-modulation...man this is an all electrical transmission...never seen anything like it~
brown power is a computer's worst enemy~
Hey the whole darned tranny can be gotten for 200---- http://www.ebay.com/itm/92-93-94-SUNBIRD-AUTOMATIC- TRANSMISSION-4-121-2-0L-1777957-/330676723165? pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Engine+- +Liter_Display%3A2.0L%7CMake%3APontiac%7CModel%3ASunbird &hash=item4cfdde5ddd&vxp=mtr
