Hi,

New member & I have to say the site is a super resource. Have a 2006 2.5x, & the auto trans is slipping when going into 2nd--jerks slightly when it catches. Any ideas?

Thanks,
K

So out side the 5yr/100,000km powertrain warranty.

If the fluid has not been replaced, I would suggest doing a few drain and fills on it. Many on here say the auto is a picky trans and likes fresh fluid and to be fully topped off.

Standard practice is drain once, fill it up drive for a few days/week and repeat 2 more times.

It may not be the answer, but it is a cost effective place to start.
