Could be bad tranny,but before you go there,check the fluid,does it smell burnt or low?

sensors...replace them all..filters...replace them all~ battery connection...clean it with a wirebrush...assure the battery is newer then ten...do all that and get back to us~ air temperature sender...oxygen sensor...all new stuff now~ transmissions really don't fail by themselves unless abused by towing a horse for example~

Bob_Nueske that would be a waste of money to do all this at this time,to a bad tranny,check fluids as i said then proceed to more fincial soltions as you resolve unknown issue,s.

1997 needs all that stuff if he's gonna get ten more years out of it~ not gonna argue the tranny if our motor is mis-behaving from neglect~ really want to put it right...put all good replacement parts on that~ we would be shopping at our junkyard (which I used to do when I was poor...I mean how many folks drive around with a spare distributor in their trunk?) honestly don't rightly care one way or the other~ just an excuse to display my art~
