If I down shift when i get to the speed I want to be at it won't shift back up into the next gear unless I put it in the gear shifter in I then it goes in that gear the back to drive then it will up shift again. About 1500 miles ago I had the valve body all the valves and torque converter replace by dealer under warranty due to the tranny surging. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
