P01776 & p0871
I've owned my 03 Intrepid for less than 2 weeks, and have a couple of issues:
1- Today I drove it about 10 miles and CEL (P01776 & P0871 also the generic P0700)came on while driving down the highway. When I came to a stop then started it would not shift, had to sit on the side of the road 5 minutes then clear codes before I could get it to shift, did this 4 or 5 times until I got it home. Research would lead me to change the solenoid pack. Any input?
2- The person I bought this car from said it hadn't been started since May (4 months), I jump started it and had a ticking noise (sounds like a lifter tap). I have worked on the car over the weekend and have run it up and down my subdivision a bunch of times, my point is the ticking noise has stopped even after is has set for 6+ hours, could it be possible the lifters were the ticking noise?
