Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
In a case like this, a scan tool should be connected to the car and driven while the problem is occurring, then take a snapshot of the activities so it can then be take back to the shop for evaluation of all the sensors and actuators including transmission shifting.
That's the way I would go then, to the trans shop. It sounds like they are more thorough too.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me too:)
