We just had the alternator replaced but it is still doing this. It doesn't seem to be draining the battery any because the car starts right up again, but it stalled 4 times today, turning off the electrical equipment along with the engine.
I have had this problem before and flushing and refilling the tranny seemed to "fix" it. Now it's back and I need to invest in the repair. Everything I've read indicates that it's *probably* the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid. My question really is the nature of the part. I have found this solenoid on Autozone and it's pretty cheap. But I have been told that these solenoids are in a package or kit that is not user-serviceable and is replaced as a unit, rather than a single solenoid. Any helpful information will be much appreciated!
This problem is intermittent. Happens most when it's been running for a while. Doesn't shift rough, just seems slow to change gears. Checked fluid according to owners manual, when truck was warm and running.
Suddenly, every time I try to fuel my van the pump shuts off early and frequently. I can rarely get more than a gallon in before it shuts off, then I can continue but it still shuts off after only a few seconds. It hasn't accepted a full tank of gas in weeks now
I pulled my '01 F-150 out of my driveway today and before I left the street, my oil light came on and the oil pressure gauge dropped to the bottom. Within a couple seconds, the light was off and the gauge was back to normal levels, only for the light to come back on and the gauge to drop again just as fast. Obviously turned right the heck around and drove my other car instead. But I'd like to know what any of y'all think I might be looking at. Checked cost of oil pump replacement and pressure sender replacement. Would much rather replace the sender. But I've gotta know my chances.
