Yes

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

thank you for your attention to the rating requirement

I would suspect oil in the eccentric shaft sensor or a faulty vvt control module

if the issue continues, then you likely have an internal transmission issue, problem with the shifter or low transmission fluid

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
