Thank you saturntech9 for responding. The mis-entered number was P1548 cruise control disabled. Yes, there is a delay in reverse, then a slight slam in. When the car was still new every once in a great while, it would slam hard into 3rd gear. My favorite thing about the car was the transmission; a little movement of the peddle and it would downshift so smoothly. Now it hesitates, then slams. It seems this all started after not using the car for 6 months, trying to save it while driving another car. Trans has been changed, but never flushed. Also, after the 6 months I didn't drive it hard. I wonder about the computer monitoring for how you drive. Back probing the knock sensor shows no voltage. Live in MN and warm ups seem to help. Also, due to living in the country, only sign of mice problems are seeds on battery, no chew signs. In summer or fall there is no rhyme or reason to it shifting beautifully or slamming hard. Willing to buy tools and dig in. Or should I take it to a shop?
