You *really* need to stop operations with the vehicle until you can confirm that the filter isn't clogged or that the fluid level correct. Also, that the cabin shifter is in fact moving the tranny control lever into the righ spot. If the filter, fuild level and linkage look good - then you have a automatic on it's last legs. That last leg can be a longish one or a shortish one - literally no way to tell. When it finally does go - you will be standed and you will then not have the option to repair - you will need to replace. Sorry for the bad news brother - were it mine, I would get it gone over now hoping to repair instead of replace. -- J Dexter - webmaster - all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Nelson, Charles - Seven Spanish Angels
