As mentioned in a previous post the car will shudder between 45&55mph first thing in the AM and would suffer from sporadic limp modes at operating temp. Well, Tuesday during my 15 min. commute to work the tranny went into limp mode within 10 mins. I pulled over and shut her off for about 30 secs. No dice. Took her back home 2,000 rpm @ 40 mph. Once I came to a stop the power steering failed for about 5 secs. and worked fine again. Early Wednesday morning I took the car back out and it drove fine. That said, only 5 mins of driving. Today I took her out for another test drive and about 10 mins. in limp mode was was again activated. Except for a new transmission solenoid, every related sensor and switch has been replaced. I truly hate to give up on this car, especially after investing much in new parts and tires. Limp mode aside, w/ 181k It's practically a new car. The first $1000 will take her today as a "mechanics special". If you're close to the Florence, SC and wish to buy it to fix or as a parts car, you really can't go wrong. I wish to thank everyone here who gave me great advice. And a special shout-out to Peva and Ronbo for their help as well. For anyone interested the ad will be on the Florence, SC Craigslist page tomorrow. I'll send a link.
