2002 SLE Transmission Problem
I own an 02 SLE with just under 50k on it and have recently began having shifting problems. I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, as I have little experience dealing with transmissions. I just wanted to know if anyone here has experienced the same type of problem, had any advice, or knew what the problem was.
When upshifting (primarily from 2nd to 3rd, and 3rd to 4th) I hear a subtle "thunk" sound coming from the engine area, followed by a rough shift. It doesn't do it every time; I think it is usually once the car is warmed up. It is much more evident when accelerating quickly, i.e. merging on to interstate, etc.
Like I mentioned before, I have little to no experience with transmissions. I had the fluid exchanged about 2 1/2 months before it started happening, and have checked it numerous times and it is always full.
Please, if anyone has any advice or information it would be greatly appreciated.
