Default hey guys give a new guy a hand?

hey guys id like to introduce myself. im garrett i drive a 1999 v6 mustang.... now before i get flamed, my girlfriend drives a 2000 magnum single cab short bed, maroon in color. and shes havin some problems and i was hopin you guys could help me so heres a few of her problems that i cant figuire out.

- her truck jumps. when shes accelerating, it seems as if her transmission disengages and then reengages very violently.

- her truck keeps dieing on her and its not her battery i thought it was her starter or alternator? but she says its her transmission

also could her IAC or anything of that magnitude have anything to do with it? maybe a bad fuel pump?

well anyway i hope yall can give a hand thanks guys

I assume you've checked transmission fluid level?

Well I really don't know about the transmission issue then. I'm no expert on them.

As far as the dying, I'd start by looking for poor connections, poor grounds, and cleaning the sensors at the intake (MAP, TPS, IAC), and a general cleaning of the throttle body.

I wonder if the torque converter clutch is locking when it's not supposed to. This would cause all the symptoms you described (jerky starts, dying, etc.).

If it's the torque converter then you'd just need to replace the torque converter. I really don't know how you'd diagnose that though to see if that's the issue, just would make sense to me if it was that. Probably need to find someone else to chime in that knows more about those year trucks.

A little more information on the dying part might help. When does it die? At idle? Accelerating? Does it restart immediately?

As for the jumping part, I assume you checked things like the ujoints? Have you done a fluid\filter change? Hook up with ramvan2500 for possible transmission issues. You might also want to change the title of the thread to what your problem is, might get more people to take a look.
