My transmission light came on one day while driving to Va. I noticed my speed stalls in shifting once I get to 25-35 mph. Along with, follows a "Kick" once it hits those speeds but runs smoothly afterwards. I checked my fluid level and the levels were high but not low as I feared. What should I do? Can I get an applicable suggestion this time, please?

Need an OBDII reader to get codes
a scanner tool to get the tranny data and codes
most local part stores in the states can help in getting you the codes
some have the service for free

I'm in the US, in NC. Thank you. I was just wondering what could possibly be the most common problem is my fluid levels are fine but with it being the winter season. Is this common and not much to worry about.
