Exactly what was wrong with my 05 impala after changing the transmission fluid at 75,000 miles. No one could figure it out and no one would listen to me since I am a girl. I had the exact same problem with my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix SE. I finally found a transmission guy who would listen to me...changed the solenoid...problem fixed!

We aren't all oblivious at everything carwise!
