Hey guys,

havent been here for a while, as it turns out, renovating a house takes over your life. Hope everyone is well.

As the subject says, I have a 94 futura 6 cyl. In the morning, when the car is cold and I go around a corner (usualy the first corner I do) the car goes into neutral for a few seconds, then takes off again.

Its been doing this for a little while now. Any suggestions on what may be causing this to happen?

cheers

I'd say your auto oil level is low. I'd warm it up. When it's at proper operating temperature, the oil level should read FULL hot. I'd start there.

Yup I had the same problem, but then topped it up and it was fine. Check fluid.

Where's the oil going? Out the extension house oil? I'd check where it's leaking before you waste all that money topping it up. It should be pretty obvious.

Hey Guys,

I put about 600 ml of fluid in it and problem solved. It would usually do it around the first corner after pulling out of the driveway (in the mornings when cold), but now, its fine.


Thanks for your help!
cheers,
