Question about Cars & Trucks
It has a new battery, it doesnt show hot, it has enough fluids, everything checks out. It doesnt matter if i drive it for 1 hour or 20 minutes it does the same thing! Help i dont know what to do! thanks!
The battery would only affect cranking ability.
You will need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related when it fails to start.
If the check engine light is on you should get the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes would be a guide for what to test.

This page explains how to change the transmission fluid but about half way down the page it tells how to check for the proper amount of fluid:
There isn't a transmission dipstick for this car.

Glad too hear your making progress, sounds like your dealing with a reasonable shop too. For future reference, take notes when your vehicle acts up. The more information you cn give your technician the easier it is to be fixed. Good luck, let me know how you make out.

, do a simple test on the charging system...check battery voltage. should be 12v or better. start engine & check volts at idle, no accessories on. volts should read 13.5 -14v. Turn on all accessories(including headlamps on high) volts should drop slightly but should not creep down. Definitely not below 12.5. If voltage drops lower than 12.5, the regulator (in the alternator) is not working. either change regulator or change entire alternator. Alternator drive belt should have sufficient tension so that alternator cannot be turned easily by hand. If it can, check belt tensioner.

I think the tcm transmission control module is loosing signal, The problem is most likely in the pcm or tcm. I would replace those parts next.
