Hey everyone, new guy here.
Im having some major issues I think.
I am eating engine coolant. I have had the Rad flushed, checked for leaks, and had the exhaust gasses tested for coolant all to no avail. Going through about a jug of fluid every two months or so. It has been going on now for about 2 years of so.
Oil pressure drops at idle when the engine is warm to about 15 on orriginal factory guage. If the engine is hot and I start it up the oil pressure indicates 0 and I get a check guages light and horn. I rev the engine to about 2000 rpm and the pressure rises and will hold waning light goes out.
I have had the oil sending unit replaced twice now with no luck.
Im at a complete loss here. At first it seemed as if the transmission was slipping. I would be driving and the RPMs would rev up as if the tranny slipped. I would take my foot off the gas RPMs would drop and the tranny/ engine would catch. drive on my marry way. Then it started shutting off all together. The first two times it did it I was at a light went to go when it turned green but the enginge had shut off. Started right up and drove on my marry way. Changed the tranny fluid and filter hoping that it would help. Nope. Now it shuts off whenever it wants, Cruising at 55-60 on the highway, up and down hills, and in all gears it seems. At first it started right up, now if it does it sometimes it takes 5 or six attempts for it to start.
I have a '02 sport 6 cyl auto trans. Any help would be much appreciated.
