Transmission problem
1996 Lexus ES 300 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 171000 miles

Currently, my car is in the transmission shop. It has been there for 5 weeks now. The mechanic has replaced almost every part, he is saying that it skips 2nd gear. He really has had a hard time with this car. I know that he is doing everything he can and isn't rushing. He also provides a warranty with his work. What else could the problem be?
