transmission fluid check, if topping it to the correct level doesn't fix it, recommend a tranny fluid and filter changes package for you-


Are you sure because sometimes if I start it up and I switch to manual it didn't read then I turn off the car start it back up it'll be good but will eventually go back to just running second
