Question Asked: Shifting problem when automatic transmission gets warm
January 24, 2011, 03:17 PM
Every time I take a highway trip that's over 1/2 hour, and then leave the highway, the transmission doesn't want to go from 1st gear into 2nd. The engine races in First gear for at least 5 to 10 seconds before it finally jumps into 2nd. The car has been doing this since 60,000 miles, and it now has over 100,000 miles on it. I'm running Mobil 1 Synthetic Automatic Transmission fluid in it, and it is less than 20,000 miles since the trans fluid and filter were changed, including the torque converter.
