    Has the Check Engine Light come on? Check the transmission fluid level. It is checked with the engine off. I have seen problems with these transmissions.

    When the light comes on it will store a code in the computer. A scan tool is needed to determine what area of the transmission or drive train has problems. I have seen problems with the transmissions.
