Back again with some fun. By the way, for those who did help me out the
last time, I did get the stereo installed.
Anyways, something new popped up last night and I wanted to ask about it. I
ahve a 2001 Focus with automatic transmission. Last night, I drove to a
restaurant and had no issues, but on the way back, I noticed a rumble while
accelerating. This was something new. It didn't start up immediately, only
after driving a while. Anyways, I can accelerate past the "spot" and it
stops rumbling or slow up and it stops rumbling.
So I let it sit all night and tried to do it again this afternoon. One the
way to my destination, I couldn't make it do it, but I left the car running
and on the way back, it did it again. My thinking (and I am NOT a mechanic
in any way) is that it could be low transmission fluid... I haven't had it
in for an oil change in a while (big mistake), so the transmission fluid
probably hasn't been checked in a long while. Anyways, does this sound
plausible? I'm thinking that I'll go to jiffylube or whatever tomorrow and
get it checked. As I've recently been unemployed, I'm hoping it's not a
huge transmission problem or I could be hosed.
