Hey automatic tranny
Symptoms:
Starts off in higher gear (2)
Won't go into 4th
After driving for more than 5 min starts erratic shifting down and up
Drop the shifter down into second it drives perfect for 10-15 min but after that it starts to erratically shift and somethimes goes to nuetral and won't budge so I turn off car wait 30 seconds turn it back on and its good to go in second for another 5 minutes
Fluid is pink
Shift to s3 or s4 does nothing different/ acts the same as when its in drive.
Checked the ecu under passanger seat and I get one red blink
Does it sound fixable? Or does it sound like I need a new tranny? Where should I look first?

It could be a few things. Have the computer scanned to see if there are any trans trouble codes. It could have to do with the trans control module, trans pressure.
