Check your transmission fluid level. If it is good, call a transmission shop for an appointment.

YEP, fluid is probably low and/or the filter is clogged up if you're lucky.

If you're NOT lucky, the trans is shot.

leaning towards the other replies.


ifiin it doesn't do that when selected to any other forward gear, then i'd have a diagnostic tech have a look see. or have trouble codes retrieved. CEL/MIL lit or not.

all i can say at this point, iffin it doesn't happen in reverse, then it's not a torque converter issue.

FYI, this has sol shifting. controlled by the ecu. just sayin, it may not be all that simple as a worn trans/internal.

as mentioned,

basics first though. fluid level check, engine/trans warm, flat ground, in neutral. likely not a fliter issue. that would effect any gear.
