How many miles on the transmission? I've heard that if you don't regularly service the transmissions and then change the fluid way late it can cause shifting issues. I'm not really sure why. It happened on my ford as well, everything worked fine then at 200,000 miles I decided to change the transmission fluid and it would then shift from 1-3, skipping 2.

Hopefully someone else has better input...

I'd think it'd be ok with 90k miles...

Any engine lights?
