Will give you a call Bill...
Nope, I didnt put a new torque converter in. What I did do, is swap the old 160k 95 E4OD for a low mileage (was told about 50k) 96 E4OD. I used the converter from the 96 in the swap. I had it leak tested and it passed and the guys at the shop said it looked almost new, so I used it.
Is what is weird is its exhibiting the exact same issues as the 95 trans did, and it started doing it immediatley after the swap. I suppose it is possible both had the same problem, but I am really beginning to think this is outside the trans. Possibly a wiring issue or a bad signal either to or from the PCM...
Something else I havent mentioned yet... the pigtail that plugs into the solenoid pack was a mess. All, (and I mean every last one) of the wires coming out of the pigtail were exposed (heat and time got to them I guess) and I am sure had crossed and touched eachother multiple times. I wonder if that caused a short or something to go bad??
To be honest, I am not really sure where to start looking at this point. I think I need to do some research and figure out how the information flows between the VSS, PCM, PSOM, solenoid pack, etc and begin to try and diagnose anything that may be shot and causing wrong signals to be sent/recieved... or am I way off here???
My other car has doors.
