Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 18 years and I will do my best to help.

I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and other repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there, and to be honest with today's electronics a scantool may very well be needed to retrieve the codes or to monitor data to see what's going on...

What do you mean it shifts from 1st to drive? Do you mean it skips 2nd gear? Does it always go into first when stopping? Is the check engine light on and if yes then what codes are setting? How does the fluid look? Has any repairs been done?

Talk soon,

Brad
