my mazda6 has an intermittent problem it kicks gear and the AT light comes on on 2005 Mazda Mazda6

the light stays on and i noticed it didnt go into 2nd gear gaining speed or downshifting. Sometimes it kicks others it doesnt. After shutting it down and starting it was ok the next time i drove it. I never know when its going to act up .

Being an owner of a Mazda 6 2006 I had a very similar problem. when Accelerating the car would kick as it was shifting. It would do it more often When you accelerated hard, as oppose to regular city driving. Took it to dealer And the tranny had to be replaced. That was 3 years ago and is all good Ever since. Hope it helps.
