Such problems could be due to a sensor, shift solenoid or PCM fault.

You would need a scan tool to retrieve the trouble code to understand what is at fault causing the problem.

Sorry I am not able to help on getting the owner's manual.

I tried googling and came up with a few sites but none of them seems to be downloadable though it says free pdf files.

I can't seem to be able to comprehend/visualise the symbol you are refering to.

That could mean an EVAP system problem and it could be a loose/bad gas cap or related problems.
