2008 AURA XR
Default 2008 Aura XR Transmission Issue

Hello, new member here. I have an issue with the transmission which seems to be different than the others listed in the forum. Occasionally (every few weeks, maybe sooner), after starting to drive first thing in the morning or evening, the car will go from first, to second, then to third (maybe?), then the check engine light will come on, the tranny goes clunk, and it goes back to first and stays there. After pulling off and parking, I shut off the engine for a few seconds and restart; the problem goes away and won't repeat for days or more. A couple of days after, the check engine light will go off. It never happens once the engine's warmed up. Thanks for any help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1-Maintenance history on engine and xmission?

2-Mileage?

3-Are all fluid levels checked including xmission?

4-Any blown fuses?

5-Retrieve error codes when the check engine light turns on, google them and/or post them here otherwise its anyone's guess. Your choice to throw away money on guesses or start with error codes and suggestions given.

6-You can always go to GM to figure it out.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
