    Make sure fluid is full (not over full) for both the transmission and the coolant. Also are there and check or warning lights on like ABS/TCS (anti-lock brake system/traction control system), Service engine soon or check engine, low coolant or red brake warning light? Vehicle would need to be Diagnosed by not only checking for codes but more so by looking at engine, transmission and speed sensor live data. Call Michael or Kris at 757-456-0722 so you can bring in and let them know if you need a free loaner car, Thanks, Jim
