I had this same problem with my '96 Chrysler Cirrus. 3 trips to my local mechanic resulted in the following (wrong) diagnosis: 1) speed sensors: replace, test drove (fine), problem reoccurred 2) test drove, no problem - "definitely not a transmission problem" 3) brought in while in problem mode: "transmission is definitely shot" After much internet searching, careful thought and unwillingness to give up: - much chatter on the internet about using the wrong Transmission Fluid on these transmissions: - should use ATF-2 not a Dexron fluid. Many sites say this will destroy the transmission. - after careful looking at transmission level, following the prscribed method of looking after the car has been parked several hours and warmed up for a few minutes I determined the level was low. If you check shortly after driving it is hard to get a good reading. This low level may or may not have been a contributor. - I found a reccommendation to disconnect the battery for 15 minutes which will force the transmission computer to re-learn shifting points. I did this and after a few days the problem went away completely (now ~ 6 weeks). I think this problem may have been caused by adding Dexron fluid a few months back when I had a leak. Check the fluid level and disconnect the battery. I bet it will work! Good Luck, -Frank
