Re: trans problem

Has the transmission been serviced? Have the codes checked to see what you get.

Re: trans problem

I would agree with checking codes. If over temp codes would look for cooling system concerns causing it or possible internal problem

Re: trans problem

This may seem random but did it rain or did you wash it recently?

Re: trans problem

Did the scanner have trans code capabilities?
