Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site, the very best advice i can give you is to take it to a shop that has a diagnostic tool that can interrogate the transmission control module to see what fault it has in it. a generic code reader will only get codes form the pcm and not the tcm.

Does what I've described cause you to think of something specific?

off the top of my head line pressure is low.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Well, I was hoping to avoid having to take it in, but looks like that's what I will do.
Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

unless you have a code reader that reads transmission codes, theres nothing i can do without knowing the fault codes. we can check line pressures but you need to have the correct test equipment to do that.

can i be of further assistance? sometimes we dont get the answer we want to hear, but those are the times that as experts we have the obligation to let you know those things
