problem #2

Apr 122007

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,400 miles
Transmission began to slip during normal driving, I then researched this problem on the internet and learned that this was not an isolated incident and I became concerned for my family's safety due to descriptions of other peoples history with this car. I took car to dealer and they determined that a replacement was warranted. PCM unit was also replaced. They replaced transmission with a re-manufactured unit, old part is not available.

  • miles
The PCM control module malfunctioned, causing transmission to down shift at random times. Shifts while pressing the accelerator, and without warning the steering wheel locked up.
