After riding over bumps, the engine light goes on, and the car gets stuck in 2nd gear. I have been to the dealership 4 times in 4 weeks.
Drivers side transaxle leak from seal
My van starts to hesitate to shift on long trips... better than 50 miles. once it cools down it is fine. No fluid trouble. not fixed yet.
Have had two transmissions installed within one year period. Most recent was two weeks ago. Drove the van only about 10 miles total and now slipping when I get to 38 mph. It did a grinding sound as it passed through 40, then seemed to shift into gear. When I came to a stop though, it would not get past 38. Limped it home doing 30 mph. Three different mechanics have worked on this and none seem to have an answer as to what the cause is, so it gets to a point and the transmission blows. I just want to sell the darn thing but I can't get it running long enough to do that.......
