Hello, im here, sorry for the delay, having isues with the site locking the question to respond. A diagnostic check for cods should be done with a scan tool to make sure there isnt any pending codes for a shift solenoid. More than likely going into netural for 3rd gear is a split or crack in the aluminum direct clutch piston so it is loosing hydraulic pressure to apply the diect clutch for 3rd and 4th gears. A line pressure test would verify a loss of pressure.This would mean either a trans overhaul or replacement would be needed to correct this concern
