"HOLD" light flashes

190

Asked by Jun 18, 2010 at 09:56 PM about the 1998 Mazda Millenia

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start to drive my car for the first time in a couple hours, whenever my automatic switches from 1st to 2nd gear, the car kicks extremely hard.  I can feel a slight kick in higher gears but nothing compares to the kick from 1st to
2nd.  Sometimes it does not kick when I coast during the shift from 1st to 2nd.  Any time after this kick ouucrs, the hold light flashes on and off and as long as the hold light is flashing it still kicks.  Eventually after driving for about 15 min the car will drive normally. What's going on?
