In the morning it will change out for about ten minutes after that it won't. I have changed the strainer and new fluid and still nothing. It pulls good doesn't slip. It tries to change out and I have also changed out the gear shifter still no help. It takes gear good doesn't slip and like I said it picks up speed when it is drove we will get it up to 60 and put it in and let it cost. It blows my mind someone please help!

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

The vehicle has a transmission control module (TCM). Something may have shorted there or in one of the speed sensors. However, it becomes nothing more than an educated guess without checking to see if there are diagnostic trouble codes stored in the system. With that in mind, you really need to scan the computer. Unfortunately, most basic scanners will only communicate with engine codes and can't read transmission codes.

Here is what I suggest: Unless you have a higher end scanner that can read transmission codes, you need to have it checked for codes by a shop that does. If you can do that, we may know exactly where the problem is coming from.

If you can, have that done and let me know what codes are found.

Take care,
Joe
