4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
I have a transmission that slips out of gear while driving at any speed and then "slams" back into gear. This causes a feeling like your buddy just pulled up behind you at a stoplight and bumped your car with his 4WD pickup. (Honest to goodness the first time it happened I looked in the rear view mirror! LOL)
I drove the car on a 130 mile trip last week and had zero problems. The car sat all week unused. When I drove it back home it slipped out of gear at least 150 times during that 130 miles.
The transmission shifts normally sometimes and other times does not. I can put the car in gear, though, even when it's having a bad day, step on the brakes, and run the RPM's up and there is no slippage felt.
In talking to mechanics around here I'm hearing everything from electrical problem to solenoid going out.
have the same problem?
