Transmission acted a little funny today at about 105-110kmh on the highway. I was in D not 3 and If I touched the gas pedal just a little, it downshifted and felt like it couldn't decide what gear to be in. I know its due for a transmission fluid change as the stuff in there is starting to fade to a dull redish brown...Thoughts?

Change the fluid and see what happens ;-) I believe 4EATs don't like synthetic and can misbehave - at least mine did.

Disagree with the no synthetic fluid comments. Been running Mobil 1 dexron for the last 212000 miles, changed every few years, runs fine.
