1996 Chrysler Sebring 100,000 mi,
My trans does the down shift klunk just prior to stopping, and does the initial klunk when 1st moving from a dead stop. It has trhe typical whirrrrr-tick tick about 100 ft from dead stop when first started cold. I have heard several things about this, and how to possibly remedy this- such as checking for software update ( how do you find them or apply them???) and changing the fluid and filter in the trans...if anyone knows what I should be doing, please let me know...bigcmfic@yahoo.com THANKS!
