You will want to determine whether this problem is electrical or an internal mechanical problem within the transmission. Start by checking your oil levels but also the oil condition. Look for any dark discolored oil as well as any signs of metal or debris within the filter and suction screen that would confirm an internal mechanical failure exists that would require disassembly for further inspection for repair or rebuild. If all of this is clean, be sure to check all of your fuses and relays but also test for power in and out of your shift control in each gear position to your transmission control solenoids. Thoroughly inspect the wiring and connector pins between your shift lever and your transmissionfor any signs of corrosion or damage that would cause a short or open circuit within the wiring harness. Reply back with the results of these checks if any further help is needed. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.

The transmission fluid looks fairly new. But after running it for an hour they check the levels after I shut it off and it seemed like the fluids were really high. Should I be checking the fluids when the engines running or after it shut off?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
Believe the transmission should be checked while running at idle. The other fluid levels should be with the engine off.
