    Make sure the fluid type and the level are correct. Check the owners manual for the type, I believe it is Dextron III. Is the upshift arrow flashing? If so, this is indicating that the transmission control module has detected a fault and a trouble code will be stored. You'll need to have a repair shop check those codes and diagnose accordingly. Good Luck!
