Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

I went back out today after not being able to find a proper test gauge to do some looking. I did make an odd find. The transmission filter was loose. It was changed along with the fluid not many...

Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

Sadly, no. I don't have the capability. I have followed a lot of false paths and replaced a lot of the common issues. I've fallen down the rabbit hole on this one.

I have ended up totally...

Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

Here's the update in this sorry affair:

I tested the car's...

Re: '98 SL2 To Fix Or Not To Fix

Yeah... that's a lot to put into a car with that kind of mileage. The thing you listed that spooked me the most was the wheel bearings. If I remember correctly they're press fit instead of being a...

Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

After looking at the same schematic, it seems that there will be no continuity unless as mentioned, the car is running.

Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

Alright... I studied the above wiring schematic. I can confirm I have continuity of the dark blue wire all the way from the PCM connector to the transmission.

Re: SL1 TAAT transmission mystery

Well, I only used the color codes on the original wiring harness as as secondary check on what was being spliced in at the moment. I changed each wire based on location, one at a time, with a...
