I m having atransmission issue. Mechanic says he can t do anything until the car goes into limp mode while he has it. I can t force that to happen. The problem is intermittent. Logic tells me that this is more likely to be an electrical than a mechanical problem. If it was mechanical, it would likely be constant and getting worse. I can go days and hundreds of miles without this issue occurring. Then the transmission starts slipping and banging into gear again. A hard bang causes the ETC light to flash on briefly. A few hard bangs and it goes into limp mode. Let it sit 20 minutes or so and it s out of limp mode.

How do I fix this? I m afraid to go any real distance in this car.

are their any engine or transmission codes stored in history?
does you mechanic have the proper diagnostic tools to read transmission codes?
