Seriously? That sneaky bastard! I wonder if he is just as clueless as I am...... I will call them today and see if they have the codes, if not it goes back in a few days anyway, I'll let my old NY blood shine and curse untill he runs them again.

I thought about the tranny going bad, I do a decent bit of off roading but its nothing very serious and it was fine last time I took it offroad. It was only in the last hour of an 8 hour trip things started going bad so I KNOW its not like i hit somthing offroad.

This is turning out to be a disaster, Could be sprak plugs, tranny, computer, transmission fluid, any number of relays, air intake, throttle body, a bad (out of the box) crank shaft sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel pump, is there anything that isnt potentially broken on this thing besides my seat and windshield???

I appreaciate the help guys

My first thought before you even said it was an auto was a bad torque converter. That would cause the lose of Power and the gain in heat. With that being said get the codes pulled, the autobone can do it for you they do it for free in this neck of the woods. That will get us going in a direction. The transmission could be responding to another problem. I wold bet that the mechanic who said the distributor was giving you the codes meant that the codes point to an ignition problem, and maybe is unfamiliar with this symptom.

Can the torque converter throw codes? Ill tell him to look at it.

Yes, I have ran it through some water 4 times in its life though im not sure its what you guys would call 'deep'.

Once during a huge storm, I went to my girls house to make sure she was ok, it was about 2 feet all the way there. (I'm only 9 feet above sea level in my hometown so everything floods like crazy). Close to a year ago.

Once while I was comming home from work, again, about 1-1.5 feet on the roads. Close to 9 months ago.

Once offroad, about 1-2 feet, running length-wise down a ditch. About 9 months ago.

Once during another storm to check on my boat, Mabey a foot or so on the roads. Mabey 2-3 months ago.

It just sounds so strange to me that I can run it through that much water and be fine, even do stuff like this: (2 days before I left)

and have no problems, but it takes a 7 hour ride for the water to do damage?
