The first thing to do is to have the complete vehicle checked for trouble codes. We have seen the electronic throttle body cause these problems. But I would recommend checking for trouble codes before replacing any parts. Get the codes and post them on this page so we can narrow down the cause of the problem.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Does the ABS light stay on at the time the trans isn't shifting?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The abs light does not come on.
What i have noticed, after erasing the codes, while driving 1st to 4th gear it shifts fine, then from 4th to 5th then to 6th, i hear like farting sound after couple of times doing the the wrench light comes on , when it comes on it goes to limp home stuck on 3rd. But after a few hours of rest without erasing any codes the car will shift fine 1st to 4th again.
Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Does the ABS light not do a bulb check at key on then? U0121 sets when the ABS module isn't communicating with whatever module the code is setting in.
