Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If the check engine light has come on with this issue here the first thing that needs done is to have the fault codes read out/checked to see what codes are set.Any codes set need diagnosed to help locate and repair this issue here.This sounds like a possible solenoid or valve body fault as this can be common in the transmission.You will have to have this tested further to be sure of the cause then repaired from there.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
