Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear T, You should really get your transmission looked at. Shutting the ignition off while driving can be dangerous. It's possible that there is a problem with the torque converter clutch lock-up solenoid or a problem in the valve body. They would need to run tests to get a proper diagnosis. As for the wipers and headlights, it sounds like you need a new combination switch. I believe the stick on the column controls both the wipers and the headlights on this vehicle. This most likely needs to be replaced. Lori Johnson
