Hi AJP510usually cause of this is transmission not upshifting gears , not going to second or third, do you feel transmission shifting
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No I don't feel the transmission shifting. What do you recommended? Is the transmission going out?
Expert:  RICK replied 8 years ago.
Hi Customer,
transmission could be low on fluid or could have internal problems, if you continue to drive like that, will for sure, destroy it...rick
