I doubt anyone is still following threads on this from a few weeks

I'm about ready to take to a tranny shop to have them do some
hoping it's not the torque converter clutch.
Other issues, possibly related: Voltage meter on dash is not rock
solid. Most of the
time it starts off low after starting, then after 10 seconds or so
comes up to a little
above middle, perhaps 12 volts. Other times, it starts at middle and
settles in well
above middle, perhaps 14-14.5 volts. Still other time the red light
after start up, staying on for anything between 5-10 seconds to a few
of driving. The tech has done tests on both the alternator and the
they are both OK.
Also, the climate control has not been working right for the last few
months. This is
a dual-sided system, with separate airstreams for drivers and
The drivers side cools and the passenger side heats.
What I'm thinking is perhaps the voltage regulator in the alternator
is flakey, and voltage
variations have trashed some other electronics.
