is the vehicle automatic or manual?

Being a common fault, I would say that it is an automatic and that I would check the transmission fluid level and condition.

Auto. Have already checked and replaced transmission fluid.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Previous mechanic suggested checking the oil. I have obviously done this and it is fine.

Lower the transmission pan and check the magnet on the bottom. Look for any metal in the pan. If metal is present you need to rebuild or replace the transmission. Also check that the transmission shifter is adjusted properly.

Also check for any codes with a scan tool in the tranmission control module.

Don't stress about the 5 star rating. I just need to sort out the problem. I'll check the magnate and if there's metal in the pan. If not I'm back to square one.
