My transmission sometimes will not shft into 2nd gear until about 3500 rpms, sometime it doesnt shift at all, sometimes the overdrive off light stays on, and some times the check engine light will flash, it was rebuilt in may 2009, but the warranty doesnt apply to me because it is not transferable as I just bought it in october 2009

That s a misfire on cylinder # 3
check engine for tune up and reason for misfire
have to have a good tuned engine for tranny to shift correctly
reason for a flashing check engine light too (misfiring )
