Re: Transmission problem?

In addition to that is your ABS. If I am you I will check wheel sensors first. If sensor is bad that can produce problem as you describe and it will not go with resetting a PCM. Do that before any action on the tranny. It is much cheaper. And yes change tranny fluid.

Re: Transmission problem?

Update: Just heard back from the dealer (a different one than last time)

My Wheel Speed Sensor needs to be replaced. That will my fix my abs, etc lights. Tech also said that could cause the tranny to be a little rough b/c the info its receiving from the wheel is not correct.

I asked them to check my fluid: It was low & I have a gasket leaking (warranty covers that) Its going to get fixed & fluid replaced.

I asked if there were any software updates available. He said there were several.

All in all, its gonna cost me about $500 but thats including all that ^^ a few new connectors and gaskets and transmission fluid filter, and labor.

Im so glad I posted on here! Thank you for all your advice!!

Re: Transmission problem?

That's was a joke...kind of.

Things will feel a lot better once your WK is flashed and refreshed with fluids.

Keep posting. There is a lot more here.

Re: Transmission problem?

I am looking for some new wheels... any suggestions?
I have a white WK w/ black trim.
I want black wheels. When I bought it, it had some nasty chrome, plastic rims on it. *embarassing to drive around*

Re: Transmission problem?

SoCal has some Black Viper wheels with a Red pinstripe for sale. Good price. $600 shipped. He takes good care of his belongings.
