Maybe someone can help me with this.
While highway driving and hitting it to pass/accelerate "sometimes" I
get a hesitation and a grinding noise like the gears are not grabbing. I
let go of the gas , accelerate again and it clears up. This only happens at
speeds over 40-50 MPH. I have an automatic '86 which otherwise changes
gears fine. I'd appreciate any help in this regard.
i noticed a hesitation on moderate take off in the 86 as opposed to the 84
smoothness. i also noticed a 'burblying' if you will at moderate speeds
when feathering the gas. also, i was getting an intermittent err code 42
and 44. also getting the 2 back plugs fouling. ran the usual chks and
then i started putting in a container of injector jet cleaner with Every
tank full and the problems have 95+% gone away. still evaluating.
Thanks for the tips. As far as the tranny I changed the fluids about 2 years
ago for the hell of it and it ran fine . I would rather not have to upgrade
the tranny but "me fears it is in my future" : ) . Joe
