Here's a rule in transmissions:
FIX WHEN IT SHIFTS AND YOU FIX HOW IT SHIFTS.
If it won't shift when it's SUPPOSED TO, then how in the world can it be right?
I would not worry to (sic) much if it is not slipping.
is so-o-o-o wrong on all fronts. It WILL bite someone in the short hairs sooner or later. I don't care if it's low fluid, no fluid, bad fluid, bad filter or your grandmother's experiences in 1808 in her Conestoga wagon, WHEN AND HOW is totally important to a transmission.
If you don't have gauges to test the line pressure and the apply and/or shift pressures and cannot make heads or tails outta the WHY it acts so, and it just had a flush and/or service, then go back a step and try to figger out what went wrong. It's very human to try to place blame on something that you don't understand, but regroup and try to get hold of the reason(s) why this "something" happened.
Transmission "flushes" are a joke and usually cause more troubles than they solve. Most people get them done when the problem has shown itself, and hoping that a good flush will cure it, they don't understand that a flush or service ......(where the filter actually gets changed and the magnet gets investigated for steel shavings and the pan gets perused for debris and burned clutch material and things that do NOT collect on an uninvented aluminum magnet get looked at and diagnosed
) â€” .......is only a maintenance procedure AND SHOULD NOT BE DONE hoping for divine intervention or sprinkling chicken bones on the problem to make it all go away.
Any malfunction must be diagnosed and/or repaired or if you are cognizant of what the reasons are for the strange behavior, then you can choose to ignore OR fix it.
Some times I choose to iggy the problem, 'cause I know the ramifications for doing that and driving it anyway. After all, I can fix my own.
Other people may or may not know what the situation calls for and they drive the thing into a cinder of smoking metal and rubber whilst others somehow get away with it for the rest of their natural lives. Search me how that happens!
What has been described here and the sequence of events leading up to the posted malfunction indicates (to me) that this is a contaminated control problem. So much better if it isn't, but if it is, just driving it and trying to force a mechanical device with no mind of it's own to work correctly is just wishful thinking.
It would be a waste of this site to fall back on the guy who has questions and tell him to "Go to a professional shop and get it diagnosed correctly" when what we are trying to do is offer some hope and a modicum of sober (yet witty) help and proffer the sum-product of our experiences.
I like to sit around the fireplace with a beer in one hand and a keyboard in the other telling war stories and how we (all
) accidentally burned one or two cars down to the hubcaps by our mistakes, but we are really attempting to help here. Yes, Virginia, I have some car skeletons in my closet from days of yore, but that was then and this is now.
