Default Park Avenue power loss

I have never had this happen before, would love to know what this is.

At any speed in a straight line i have plenty of power, tranny is fine, the moment i turn while accelerating, its like the engine completely disconnects from the tranny until im driving straight again and it rehooks, what in the world is that? Its almost like the axles pop out while turning and then pop back in.

Possibly a wire with worn insulation that is grounding out when you turn??? Is the check engine light lit?

No I have a scanner and monitor everything. Could it be the side motor mounts?

Have you checked your transmission fluid level while hot, parked, and idling on level ground? Has the dipstick been replaced at any point?

I wonder if it'* fluid running away from the transmission fluid pickup because it'* low. Others have also overfilled by 1/2 a quart with good results.

I'd only put a tad bit extra, too much is just as bad as too little.

no dice on the extra, couldn't put too much. but i will say, the fluid was super clean and this tranny has been flushed every 30,000 religiously. It was a vip car for a company for their high level people. I have all the records.

I have found out though that the rear motor mount is practically non existent, wife has been making a solid one the past few days. Dont know if its relevant, dont see it affecting the axles.
