Transmission solenoid is faulty, you need a tuneup, vacuum leak, etc? What other symptoms do you have? Only when cold, warm, noises, etc?

It's happening when cold or warm. When put in gear the revs are very low before it cuts off. To get it home I would put in neutral when I had to stop.


i have the same problem except mine sometimes wants to turn off in park or neutral. 1984 auto fiero
