Default Tranny went out..

There'* no first gear, no matter what. Starts out in second. Struggles. There'* a slight hissing coming from the transmission when you go to go. It won't go into first even when it'* switched into lowest gear on the console shift lever either.. What'* your suggestion as to the cure to the problem, or what the problem could be?

PS, i just checked fluid levels with trans and engine warm, fluid is at correct operating level.

Unfortunately, with an auto tranny, you're kinda screwed. Lot'* of money to fix, or replace it.

You made it happen...you tell us..

I'd think there was a "technical difficulty" aka.. something that can't easliy be explained.

Check your fluid. What'* it look like? That'* the first thing to check when it screws up when hot, but not cold.

Sounds like a "hiccup". Might never come back. But, for a while anyway, I wouldn't go anywhere in her you can't easily get back from.

I would also look into at least a tranny fluid/filter change. That will replace about a third to a half of your current fluid (could help). Plus, you'll be able to see what kind of debris is in the pan (hopefully stuck to the magnet)

I would say to think about a flush, but personally I'd rather see the fluid for myself.
