Car Information:
Buick Skylark
Year: 1994
Engine Size: 4 cylinder
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
I drive to work and its 20 miles from my house. When I coast at a light or about to stop, my car stalls and shuts down. I start the car again it turns on just fine but when I apple the accelerator it will not move. It will start just fine when putting it in drive, to go it shuts off. I wait about 5 minutes for it to cool off. It will take off as if nothing happened. It stalls again, let it cool off again I can drive it for a while then it happens all over again. This is only when driving long distant. The check engine light never came on until March 12,2010. I’ve driven the car for two weeks with this problem. Every mechanic I know don’t know what the problem is when I explain it. They drove the car and said, “they can’t find any thing wrong with it.” They don’t drive the distant I given them; they say,”I don’t see that you have a problem.” Help!

Answer:
Needs a new torque converter clutch solenoid installed in the transmission around $470.00.
