Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to determine if the problem you are having is a transmission concern or and engine control concern we need to start with having the computer system scanned to see if there are any fault codes setting. If you can get this done and post back with the results I will try and help you determine the cause.
