my F150 does it as well. just have it scanned and that will find the problem

When you guys say have it scanned....is that the device they plug in under your dash that gives check engine codes? Because my Mazda was doing this too but it doesn't give any transmission codes when scanned. Is there another scanner for a transmission or is it the same?
