Customer Question
I have a 1995 Mitsubishi...
I have a 1995 Mitsubishi Montero LS. Today I was at a stop light and my transmission light (A/T) came on. It started flashing, the check engine light came on, the light turned green and when I drove off the lights went out. When it happened 3 or 4 more times since However, they are soft codes nothing- that will set a hard code so far. obd1 sucks no memory but the Transmission shifts fine and fluid is clean "pink" and to level. There are 180k miles on the SUV.

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.

If you have not had the transmission fluid changed out or flushed it is possible debris is stuck in the transmission valve body causing this fault here needing to be changed out/cleaned to resolve this issue.If this is or was done and the issue continues let me know.

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.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
