I had my transmission rebuilt about 2 years ago. The check engine light came on and I took it back to the
transmission shop. The technician checked it out and said the sensor and not the transmission was bad and
he would have to remove the transmission if he fixed it. He said, however, that since it was the sensor, he would recommend not fixing it because of cost. He also told me of a customer that drove a caddy for over 100,000 miles with the bad sensor and the only thing that happened was the check engine light stayed on. I can
reset the light and when cold, the car will go up to 10 miles before it comes on. If hot,only a few miles. My question is, can the sensor be disconnected or anything done to get the service engine light to stay off.
check engine light came on. mechanic thought transmission may need to be replaced but after examining the car, found that it was torque selinoid. I picked up car, and light came on again. This time I was told it was a manifold vacuum.
