Gear Shifting Problems & Blinking Overdrive Light
I'm having a little problem with my 2000 GXE. It only happened to me once about 6 months ago, but has happened three times this week and I'm starting to get worried.
I hop in the car, crank the ignition, and start driving. I have to press the pedal down pretty far to get the car moving, and the shifting is completely off. It almost feels as if I'm driving with overdrive turned off, yet the light is not lit. The fix to this is to stop the car, cut off the ignition, wait a couple seconds, and restart. After doing this the car starts just fine, and the overdrive light blinks for about 10 seconds. When that's done, I drive off, and everything works just fine.
Any thoughts? I have 106,000 miles and automatic transmission. Been pretty regular on getting the car serviced, but I know it is time for a transmission fluid change.
Thanks in advance.
