Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

When this occurs since the transmission service required light/message is coming on this indicates the engine/transmission computer is seeing a fault with one of the transmission components and is alerting to you that an issue is found.What has to be done here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool that can plug in and can communicate with all computers in your model to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.

I suspect there is a fault with a transmission shift or pressure solenoid or possibly transmission temp sensor needs to be replaced.There are several causes for this fault here so it is difficult to pinpoint the issue from here without knowing what codes are set.So the codes do need to be read out to help locate and repair this fault but these are some of the common causes.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Thank You Pete.It looks like I cannot get the answer without having the code reader (which I wanted to avoid hence I came to this side)Looks like the best option will be to give the car to someboy who already has the tools and let then dealwith the repairs.

Your welcome

If you can get the codes read out and can come back here and post the code info this will help just let me know.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time,this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5 star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
