I have a 2002 park ave (no ultra) with 24K miles. I am noticing more
and more what appears to be tranny troubles. 1st, at times I notice a
slip or jerking feeling when I hit the gas during a turn or after
briefly taking my foot off the gas. It rarely does it but even my wife
noticed so I know its happenning. I didn’t even point it out to her.
2nd, I noticed what I call a surging or pulsing sensation. If I am
accelerating slowly and hit a slight upgrade going around 25 or 30 mph
and the tach is around 1500. I can see the tach fluctuate between
maybe 1800 and 1500 rpm’s and it feels like the car is jumping back
and forth between gears. If I maintain the gas pressure it will keep
doing it but if I give it a little more gas it will slowly come out of
I took it to the dealer who drove the car, smelt the fluid and checked
for codes. He says everthing is normal, no codes. I then took him for
a ride and sure enough, it rode perfect. He says nothing he can do
since he doesn’t see any problems.
I went to the library and found documents 901351 & 1453640 which seem
close to my problem. I know better than to tell a mechanic his job but
it won’t mess up with him in the car. The warrenty runs out this June
so I would like to get this fixed soon.
What do you all suggest I do? I’d hate to drive it slowly up and down
lookout mountian just to try and burn up the tranny but I’d also hate
to get stuck with the bill...
