Wet under the Hood and then the transmission goes wierd!?
2005 ZXW (wagon)
Car runs fine, no major complaints Ė until it rains.
Car will operate just fine in a shower, but as soon as I hit standing water (enough to make a decent splash) the tranny (automatic) slips. It will go in and out of gear Ė I end up barely driving 10mph!
Sitting still, in drive or neutral, the engine idles fine.
Sice this only happens after driving through water deep enough (2 inches) to make a splash, Iím assuming that something is getting wet and confusing the heck out of the car. After an hour or so of sitting and drying out, the car is fine.
What do I need to check Ė Iím thinking a sensor? But which ones should I look at? Or perhaps there is another problem?
