does the engine light stay on?if so,can you give me the computer codes?
are you there?
no engine lite on
if you manually shift it from d1 all the way up to d,,,what does it do when it gets in d?
does it act as if it goes to neutral?
ok,,the first thing you need to try here is to replace the transmission fluid and filter
a clogged filter could cause this
dont be surprised if it doesnt
it is very posible[from the way you explain] that the od clutch froictions are burnt out
if that is the case,,the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced
but..it is worth a shot to replace the filter,,i have seen a clogged filter do this
what are the od clutch froictions?
they are the cltches inside the transmission
sense the fluid has a brown tint to it
it is possible the trans is damaged
If I have the fluid and filter changed and it still has the same problem, will it hurt to drive it in d-1 thru d-3?
it wont hurt it no worse
but..you may also soon loose 3rd as well
try the filter,,you may get lucky
OK, thanks, I'll try changing the filter
you are very welcome
