You may have a tranny issue tc. Check the fluid level on your tranny. If it's low them fill to the proper level and see it it relieves the issue. If it does, try to find the leak and get it taken care of, If it doesn't you will probably need to seek professional help. Good luck!


check fuse number 23 under hood
