Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor
I have a 2004 Endeavor. It has about 130,000 miles on it. I bought it used so not sure of the past repairs. I have noticed the colder the weather gets, that when I get in my car to start it, and go to put it in gear it will not go into reverse or forward. If I let the car warm up completely....about 10-15 minutes it will finally go into gear and run fine the rest of the time I am driving it, no hesitation, no jumping, nothing until I park it for the night and then it starts all over the next morning. So I took it to the trans shop to see if they could tell me what's wrong with it. All they can tell me is that they can't change the filter because they have to drop the pan to do this, and that I need a new trans....I am a single mom with little money so I don't have a extra 3000 bucks just lying around. They told me they changed out the fluid and its driving better but that I still need a trans....is this something I should really stress about today or is this something that I can fix in time....any ideas????? Is flushing the trans a good idea???? Any help is appreciated.
I have a similiar problem. The difference is that mine doesn't run any better after it warms up. When I went to put my vehicle in reverse I had to push on the accelerator before it would go into gear, and it was the same thing with the vehicle in drive. I went and had the transmission filter changed and it ran fine that day. Then when it got cold that night it started acting the same way. So I took it to a transmission shop. They drove and said that there wasn't a problem with my transmission. They told me that I needed to take it to the Mitsubishi dealership to have it reflashed so I did, and it should be out of the Mitsubishi dealership this Friday, Jan. 2, 2009. I will post on that day to tell you if this fixed it. It only costs $80 to have it reflashed.

Check transmission fluid level in NEUTRAL and engine running, use only SP-III fluid.
