Torque Bind ??
Posted 22 August 2008 - 04:57 PM
Can torque bind (duty C solenoid failure) happen in neutral ?? Even in a straight line and going down my street in neutral I can have that shuddering from the rear :-\

Have you tried a fuse in the FWD socket in the engine compartment to see if the symptom goes away?

But, while going in a straight line? Either you have wheels of different size, or its not torque bind.

Measuring the circumference of each tire isn't a bad idea -- but if there's binding and it's bad enough, even a significant difference of inflation pressure in otherwise similar tires can cause problems. If you have alloy wheels, especially ones that have seen much road salt, they tend to get corroded and not hold air for very long.
I have checked the wheels they looks the same, same michelin...and didn't mesure them but thread seem to be the same...If not the solenoid...what could that be ??
By the way, 16 flashes of the ATF temperature warning lamp only indicates an electrically-related transmission problem, but not specifically what it is. Have you read the trans code(s) yet, or are you assuming that duty solenoid C is the problem?

ANd yes the AT oil temp is flashing 16 times...
But why do I have the problem in neutral ?? that's really strange, ist'nt it ?

Duty solenoid "C" will show as "24" when the Codes are pulled from TCU correctly... 16 straight flashes just tells you there is a problem, 24 would be two long flashes followed by four short ones, kinda like morse code.
See this thread for more info...

ANd guess what ? it was just an dead rear shock :-\
no more strange noise but still have the AT OIL temp flashing 16 times, and nothing happens with the 2wd fuse:confused:
