If the transmission has not learned correctly on one of the clutch volumes, you can get a rapid shudder during certain shifts. But that would not sound like a metallic rattle or buzz (not "tinny"),...

Ah! So you mean a BUZZING sound? Shouldn't be anything in the transmission. My best guess would be some metal part, like a heat shield, that is going into resonance (and buzzing) during the shift.

What is a "buging" sound? Do you mean "bucking"? Are you getting a brief shudder during the upshift?

Glad the lady was honest! It probably wasn't really her fault. New vehicles have a large magnetic charge applied at the factory, so they attract other vehicles, especially when brand new. For...

No, not normal. And apparently not common either (my Aisin expert is scratching his head). Best bet is to visit your dealer, have him check for fault codes, and then (assuming no faults) record the...

Once you get it moving, does it seem to upshift and downshift normally? That is, is your problem primarily launching from a stop? Seems OK at normal driving speeds?

If so, I suspect you may have...

I don't think parking on a hill had anything to do with it. The "Service Shifter" message means there was a problem with the shifter module itself. The trans controls are completely electronic, so...

Actually limp-in is 3rd gear (direct gear), but in the dash display it will show "4". P0750 would be the cause of the limp-in.

Good thought! If your engine idle speed dips too low (like around 400 RPM, I think) the TCM will think the engine has stalled, and will shift the trans to Neutral (giving you the blinking "D" in the...

I'm thinking probably not. I don't see "harsh closed-throttle coastdown shifts" (or any similar description) in the list of items fixed by that TSB.

The pressure relief valve is retained in the top of the filter. It pops open to relieve any excess pressure, then falls back to its original (closed) position.
