My AT light came on and wouldn't shift out of second gear, and before this happened was shifting real hard from third gear into fourth gear. Shut off car sent to drive and light is out and shifting agai . Do I need a new tranny or wut!?
I just bought the car and decided to drive to San Diego. The axel broke it was replaced and after I got home I started noticing that it was not smoothly shifting from 1st to second gear. As long as I didn't gun it it was fine and it drove smoothly once out of 1st,2nd gear. Then last week I was driving home from work and the "AT" automatic transaxle light came on. I stopped, turned off the car and it went away. The next day I was driving home and the light came on again. I did the same thing but this time the check engine and AT light stayed on. Also, I noticed that it began struggling getting from 2nd to 3rd gear. Immediately took it in but am still waiting on a verdict. Im fairly confident I bought a lemon.
I have the 3.7 V6, and have noticed that the car slips and jerks when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. It only does it under medium acceleration, not light like a old lady, or when I've got it pedal to the metal, just she like trying to pull out onto a road with a high speed limit and you need to get moving somewhat quickly. I love the car's power, but I'm definitely worried about its long term reliability!
