I felt comfortable enough to take to car on a road trip to Atlanta about 500 miles. the car ran great and after all the suspension changes the car was smooth finally. When i got into Atlanta i came to a stop and the car disengauged itself, so when i got on the gas it reved over 2000 rpm's before engauging. since then i'll drive and it downshifts itself to over 5500 rpm's and i'll keep the pedal at the same position. It like doing this around 50 to 55 mph. Not only that but when i go from neutral to drive it willl either not engauge itself or it takes longer than normal. I drove the car home, just wondering what the deal is and if it's important. anyone ever had this before.

It's stock. WHAT!

I would check the tranny fluid first if its an automatic and maybe do filter and fluid change and see if that makes a difference.

You are correct about it being low. It actually leaks tranny fluid, and I dont know really how to solve that problem, so your probably right. Do you think it would be worth trying to get seal fixed on it?

It's stock. WHAT!

I'm gonna tackle the transmission fluid change this weekend. Just a few questions before I start because this is the first automatic I've owned. 1. How tuff is the job? 2. How much fluid needs to go in? 3. What can I do to stop it from leaking?

It's stock. WHAT!

Sounds like low tranny fluid. Check for leaks.
