I've got a 93 Mazda Protege 4 speed auto with a shifting problem. It occurs when going from 2nd to 3rd gear. When the problem happens, the 2-3 shift has a long slipping feel to it and the hold light will start flashing. I checked for trouble codes and code 62 came up, which I believe indicates a 3-4 shift solenoid problem. The thing is, this problem doesn't always happen. Sometimes the car will go for days without a problem, other times within 10 minutes the problem will pop up. The transmission fluid is up to the proper level and doesn't look or smell burnt. Will changing the fluid and filter and using some Lubegard take care of the problem, or will it require servicing? If it did need servicing, do you know what is involved in fixing the problem, and possibly how much it would cost?
have the same problem?
