how long has it been since trans was serviced with filter change?
on October 24, 2012
I just brought the van about 3 months ago. At that time I was told that the trans was serviced @ about 150K.. It now has 166K on it. Again the hard shift stops once I turn the van off and restart it.. My mechanic looked at it and said the fluids were clean and didn't look like the trans needed to be rebuilt. Is there anything else that could be causing this problem.
