Transmission I have a 1992 Chevrolet Lumina car with a 3.1L V6 and 4T60 transmission. I haven't felt it since I changed the filter and the fluid, but it would shift hard going into the highway, and shift into neutral when getting off and stopping at a stop light, if shift it to neutral, and back to drive it runs fine. This car has over 220k miles and runs like a champ, except for this periodic issue, if you could help me out that would be awesome.
