I took the car to the dealer and ran a code check. Two transmission related codes were stored. Problem could be either the valve body (did not receive good signal) or low on transmission fluid.
According to the technician the transmissison fluid was low. He topped it off a little higher and cleared the codes. The transmission was flushed several months ago and was filled to the top of the Max level. But today it was filled 3/8" beyond the max according to the measuring tool I purchased from ebay. I was told the fluid on these transmissions should be filled a little higher.
Did this resolve the issue?
