Trouble with 98 Intrepid
I own (2nd owner), 98 Intrepid (105k km, 2.7 litre), it is giving me a lot of grief as follows, and any help will be much appreciated :
When accelerating from slow speeds on normal street driving, the car studders/hesitates, sometimes jerks, giving the impression that the tranny is slipping. Dealer checked the tranny and no fault codes found - tranny dip stick show crystal clear pink fluid, and no smell. The car runs like a charm on the highway, at high speeds (beyond 60 km/hr.).
Have had lot of opinions, e.g. tranny fluid overflow, TPS, intake manifold gasket, etc. etc. Because of this, the car is very sluggish to drive on street driving (brake and go).
I am sick of this performance issue to the extent that I am thinking of selling it, but I really love the sporty looks of the car and dont really want to do it.
