Hey all,

As soon as the auto warms up it gets stuck in 3rd gear and i've go no idea what is causing it. The auto has been flushed about a month ago but that didnt make any difference

Any suggestions on what else it could be?

Thanks.

Oh and what kind of money will i be looking at to get it fixed?

I've heard disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes resets it.
