go to auto zone buy Lucas Transmission conditioner add it to your transmission fluid. go by the directions on the back of the bottle. It wont hurt your Transmission run the vehicle about 30 minutes it should stop the problem if it doesn't you can add one more bottle. they coast like 15 dollars a bottle it will do the trick. Greg

you see this bottle its called Lucas Transmission slips and small leaks. all you have to do is add it and run the vehicle for about 30 minutes put the stuff in were you transmission stick goes to check you fluid . It will fix the problem now if you wait to late forget it. I have fixed about 10 women's cars this way. after you add the Lucas fluid it it keeps doing it then add another quart. it does work but you wait to long to were it wont shift forget it. I'm trying to help you out with a cheap fix I know what I'm talking about Auto sells it . take a picture of the bottle were you get the right bottle ' Greg Odom
