    tuner08 - Contact our research department and they will try and help you. You must have your Haynes manual that you purchased available when you contact them. Contact them at [EMAIL="research@haynes.com"]research@haynes.com[/EMAIL] don't forget to mention that admin sent you.

    Checking in the factory service manual, though, it looks like your transaxle doesn't have a modulator valve, as the trans is electronically controlled.

    Hi tuner 08,

    Have you checked your transaxle fluid level yet? That's the first check you should make.

    Also check the condition of the fluid. If it's dark and smells burnt, internal problems are indicated.

    Yeah i even change my fluid and it didn't smell burn't and it wasn't dark. I also cheked my Transmission Range Switch and the book says there should be 6 clicks in it and I checked it and it sounds like it is missing 3 of them.Could that be my problem? And can i get a price on the Transmission Range Switch? I can only buy my parts from dealership. Thanks.

    As far as we know the dealership is the only supplier for your vehicles trans parts. You can autorepairmanuals.biz for detailed automatic transaxle overhaul information, they may also be able to guide you to a different parts retailer.

    tuner08 - Our research department has information to fax or mail you, contact them so they can get you the information.

    Was there any metal or clutch material in the fluid? The things that wear the most are the friction discs in the clutch packs and the lining material on the brake band(s). Best thing you could do is take it to a trans shop and have them do pressure tests, this will tell you what's working and whats not.

    It's our suggestion that if the trans shop test indicate it's bad, take the car home and follow our manual to remove the transaxle and either have it repaired by a qualified person or find an exchange unit and you reinstall the new or rebuilt unit.

    This will save you money and time.

    Good luck.
