Yah I know, I beet on my tranny once in a while. But its still very strong and has more to offer. I don't know if I should rebuild it with a shift kit or putt in a reman. -Toddster

I thought of this today when i was driving and realized that i left some details out.
when i come around any corner the tranny will go into 4rth gear over drive at like 25 to 30mph and dog the motor so i have to give it gas to just about make it downshift.
Also when the tranny does this the motor makes a fluttery niose coming from the intake side.
And I don't know if this is related but my traction control switch does not light up but my traction control does work when I push the button off or on. Once in the very cold of coldest days here in WI the light did come on when I started the car in the moring last winter. I don't know what to think of that.-Toddster

OK just an update. I did over fill the trans fluid by a half quart. No change in the way it shifts I think I just have a bad tranny that needs money thrown into it to make it better.-Toddster

I suspect you have a sensor out of Cal. or a sticking valve body.
try testing the TPS voltage and see if its in range.

The second trans shop checked the TPS for correct voltage and found it was normal.

Does these problems have anything to do with how much gas is in the car? IE does it still happen on a full tank?

it does not matter how much gas is in the car. the problem starts as soon as the tranny warms up.-Toddster


Problem fixed by putting in rebuilt tranny.

I noticed similar problems with my tranny when I went around a bend, particulary at a yield sign. I would temporarily slow down and then accelerate through the yeild (bend in the road). It'* been over a year, but I sort of remember the tranny either slipped or would not shift from the lower gears to higher. Unfortunately, I had to have the tranny rebuilt within a short time after noticing this problem two to three months. The 92 Bonne SE had in and around 145- 150K miles on it at the time.

welp... I found this site and I found the problem I'm currently having with my bonneville... about 105k on it, and as the OP said, when I'm accelerating around a corner or pulling off from a yield the car really dogs it... It'* intermittent, happens both when the car is cool and warm, happens when regardless of full/empty tank...

It'* a bit frustrating, and I'd love to know why and how to fix this... but I can live with it if need be... any other suggestions?
