Customer reply replied 8 years ago

no se light 88932 miles after 3 drive cycles and the customer had ir for a week of driving with new used tranny and had same symptoms

 

Auto Mechanic: FixItMan, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
Okay. This can happen from a dirty or bad mass air flow sensor. I would start by cleaning it out. If the problem continues then you need to have the vehicles computer reprogrammed as the transmission shift programming may be wrong.
