Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

It sounds like you probably have an issue within the valve body of the transmission. There will be codes stored even though the check engine light isnt coming on. Getting those codes would be the best place to start. You would have to take it to a shop with a decent scan tool to get transmission codes.. places like autozone wont be able to pull transmission specific codes.

Hi, I checked error codes. There are no any codes stored. Any other clues?
