Not sure what you mean by kick in. If your going 3-4 miles the transmission is working. If it's slipping then check your transmission fluid level while it's running. It should be red like cherry Kool-aid. If it's low add the correct fluid to the correct level. Then look for a leak. If it's full but brown and smells burnt then have it flushed. I highly recommend BG brand.
