Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just did flush from dealership and didn't help at

COMPLETELY fix shifting problem?

there is a "kick down" link that seems to be full-on kickin' the may check the adjustment of your kick-down....think it's a turnbuckle on your model~

Thanks a lot judge, I'll look into that!

If it is slipping, your bands are probably burnt requiring a swap or a rebuild. A fluid change is always what I say to do first to see if it helps, which you did, but if not, then $$$$.
