I recently encountered ATX problems.
1. I start the car after at least 10 hours in the parking lot. Engine is cold. ATX is cold. Car performs smoothly and without problems.
2. After about 20 miles the problems start. ATX is at optimal temperature. I sense a slight delay in shifting that grows more and more problematic over time. If I accelerate with a little more power or at an uphill road RPMs go up until they reach 6,000 and I can hardly accelerate at all. It seems the ATX is not able to lock a gear or transform engine power into forward acceleration.
3. AT warning light comes on. Sometimes also the check engine light comes on.
4. Last time both warning lights came on and error P0841 was found. This time only the AT warning light is on. I do not now the error code at this time.
Recently the engine overheated due to a lack of cooling fluid. Consequently the cylinder heat gasket blew and was replaced by a Mazda technician. ATX was cleaned (flushed) several times to get rid of some residue from the blown heat gasket. Problems started after this.
have the same problem?
