6 Answers


Have trans codes read. Probably your speed input sensor is going bad.

I have a code reader how do I do it there's no check engine light


Might have a stored code even without light lit up. Although un hooking battery erases stored codes on these cars.

Ok because I check codes and there was none and I checked before I disconnected battery


Unhook battery for at least ten minutes and try to drive it again. Right after it acts up check for codes again.

Ok I will try that
