My Pontiac has started shifting hard and sometimes taking a loooong time to find the gear. My first suspicion is that it has MDS (Multiple Driver Syndrome), so I'd like to try the cheapest option of resetting the adaptive part of the adaptive transmission. On other cars (BMW?) it's as simple as turning the key on and holding the accelerator down for 30 seconds, but this didn't seem to do anything for mine.
- Shifts hard
- Takes a long time to shift
- Feels like it doesn't "engage" all the way, when starting (it feels like the clutch is slipping... but it doesn't have a clutch...)
- Doesn't shift out of overdrive consistently
None of these happens all the time. All of them are pretty intermittent.
I'll accept instructions on how to reset the computer, and/or alternate cheap solutions.
