140661 km (auto w/speed stick) One day. while i was coming home, the car seemed to lose the transmission. I got it towed home and started troubleshooting. There are no codes, the engine starts and runs but there is nothing from the transmission in any gear. Actually, even while it's in park, it seems to be in neutral. . I did notice that as I moved it through the gears, that the engine surges. Once I saw that, I noticed that when in reverse, the speedometer reads approx 5MPH and when in drive it reads about 10-12 MPH. Any thoughts? I'm pretty confused.I jack up the back end to check the drive shaft check the wire connection near the computer module on the trany all was good turn the well to see if the crank shaft was ok put the car back on the grand sharted the car all was working this has happen to me twos now ????
