96 SE transmission problem? or is it traction? HELP!!!
I have a 1996 Bonneville SE. It has 215,000kms on it and has had many replacements and repairs in the 5 years I have owned it.
The biggest concern right now (and there are many others that will have to wait) is when I start out from park, I will suddenly hear a wirring sound and seem to lose power to the wheels. It is very cold right now and don't know if it is a winter issues, or over sensitive traction control..or is it early gear slipping? It doesn't happen in high gears only when I am starting to drive.
In high gear I have a different issue. When I am accellerating in high gear at high speed I will experience shuddering or vibrating. It will stop if I accellerate through to the highest gear or if I take my foot off the accellerator.
I hope that is enough information for now to start diagnosing. I have heard it will be around $3000 for a rebuilt trannie, so I am hoping there are other options. I really want to keep this car alive for another couple years or 40,000km with out that sort of investment.
Thank you all.
