Won't shift out of 1st gear
For some odd reason, my intrepid (99 2.7) won't shift out of first gear. If it does some how shift out of first gear it jerks HARD. It took forever for the check engine light to come on. Of course its the transmission but I am thinking, considering this is the third time its done it, everytime I changed the fluid and changed out the filter it was as hard as a rock, considering I hadn't put a LOT of miles on the car. Whenever that was done the light went away and it drove fine. I was afraid of driving it and hurting the transmission(cause I live on a hill).
Whats so bad about the check engine light is that it came on at an Auto parts store! Listen to this, when I asked for them to do a quick diagnostic check for me, they told me to hold on for a sec, waited fifteen minutes then told me they were closed. Racist bastards, don't want to help a young black male.
Considering this is the third time its happened, and the tranny fluid, if I'm not mistaken, should last a lot longer. Faulty filter? Kind of odd if u ask me. Anyone else experienced this????
