transmission quits after a couple of blocks. shut off car and restart and it goes again and quits again. Have changed the fluid three times and it still does this. fluid was really bad, brown. When it does this it feels like it is hunting for a gear. I'm thinking it might be the throttle position sensor. any ideas would be appreciated. thanks, ron

1989 740 gl, wagon. 2.3. only changed trans fluid, Grandson's car he just bought. kickdown cable was disconnected and the guy told him it would be ok to drive like that. sprayed some pb blaster in housing but still won't retract on it's own. was wondering if the od relay could be bad but thot that was for od only, maybe not. I sure think it is electrical because after restart it goes again.
