Whats the issue! Please HELP!

Hey guys I have a 2005 3.7L GC with 87000 miles on it. My transmission has been acting up lately. When I drive it will sometimes get stuck into a gear. If I brake to fast it will sometimes completely never get into first, forcing me to just stall there as if I were in neutral. Shifts hard throughout the gears sometimes. I heard of some tranny problems with these 3.7's. Just need other peoples inputs.. Thank you, mike

Re: Whats the issue! Please HELP!

My check engine light comes on occasionally. I should go get it checked out. One time if I remember I went to get it checked and it said ECU I think. And what do you mean by merc tranny?

Re: Whats the issue! Please HELP!

basically...you turn the key on and off 3 times and after the thrid time you leave the key on. This will display any codes that are stored. You ca also go to an autoparts store like advanced auto and they will pull the codes
