Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the oil and filter condition for burnt smell, discoloration, and for metal/debris that would indicate an internal problem or failure occurring requiring removal and bench disassembly and repair. If okay I see the dealer reset the shift points so inspect the valve body for debris and sticking valves as well as a possible faulty solenoid. Have the pressures tested and verified if they are in specs. If okay have the dealer totally reflash the software and reset to factory settings. Let me know
