Pontiac sunbird

Asked by Feb 13, 2016 at 01:54 AM about the 1995 Pontiac Sunfire 2 Dr SE Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I.just bought this 1994 Pontiac sunburned,
with a rebuilt engine, and recently a new
trasmission was placed#O. Now car is
stalling, and cutting off after a 100 mile trip.
When it goes over 50, it starts to drive real
rough, shaking, and a new clicking noise at
high speeds. It just had brake booster
placed, so the brakes r fine? I'm reading
about this being a common problem among
the Pontiac sunburned. Any helpful.....info
would be great appreciated

Did you purchase this car from a private party or used car dealership? If so, you're probably stuck with any repairs. And, I'll bet you failed to have it inspected before purchase. This is a great example of how NOT to purchase a used car. Sorry. Hope others can learn from this.

So it happens after it's warmed up? So it runs fine in park and neutral and dies in gear? Then it's the torque convertor in the transmission lock up when it shouldn't. Common cause is the transmission torque convertor lock solenoid that is faulty.
