Best thing is to get that light scanned and know the code. Bring that back and we can give a much better diagnosis from there.

It depends on what problem the trans is having... It will for some issues but not others... That doesn't mean that it hasn'r already stored a code tho... It can store a Code without setting off the engine Light

the only thing is even if i use the info in the tech info i still don't know what i'm looking for when i'm "trying to read codes". since i have a 92 a regular scaner wouldn't work.
