My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In some cases this can be due to an issue with debris build up in the transmission valve body with the transmission needing flushed or an issue with the valve body itself.You will have to have the transmission fluid pressures tested to see if this helps point to the fault here with the valve body itself.In some cases having a flush done will correct this as well as it will free up and remove any debris that may cause issues in the transmission.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
