    6 CD changer

    Avoid the junkyard units because they are old as yours like 21 years. Look into getting only the cd player replaced. Just avoid oemautosound in Florida.

    In-dash 6cd unit slow to respond.

    These pioneer cd players are poor. There are companies that can replace the cd changer only. Just a word of caution dont use oemautosound in Florida. Read the reviews first.

    what could it be?

    Sounds like torque converter. Better get it before it breaks flexplate/flywheel. Flashing O/D lite and vibration is the hot tip.

    I did replace T-stat, ECT sensor, Cap, Gasket and coolant. All fixed runs geat. $42. This form PRICELESS!

    all I did was change the T-stat

    2 very important points. 1) make sure the replacement t-stat has the air vent and when installed it is at the top. 2) replace the cap...I know seems to work. This is a real cheap fix.
