OD Lockup Not Staying Engaged
So I drove my Intrepid yesterday,
OD lockup doesn't seem to be staying engaged (pretty sure this describes the symptoms I'm having). Drives at 2300RPM on the highway, then jumps to 2500RPM, then back to 2300RPM. Does this every minute or so, car shudders a bit when it does it too. Decided not to drive the car again until I can figure this out. Any advice? Fluid flush & new ATF +4, or new high stall torque converter time?
Took it into the dealer for warranty work years ago for this exact problem (not as frequent). They told me it was 'normal' and I shouldn't worry about it.
I need to check the fluid level still, is there a right and wrong way to check the fluid? Should I be checking the colour as well?
